Roving Reporter

I hope you're thirsty, because the fabulous Kola Gin​ is going to be serving up her effervescence as a roving reporter πŸŽ€ for the 2019 parade!

Big, Bold, Bubbly and Beautiful, this Queen has at least 20 years' Drag experience under her weave.

Born in small-town Hawke's Bay, educated in the Waikato and now living in Auckland, her ability to juggle a full time day job, host cabarets and travel around the country performing is stronger than a free-pour.

Kola has always considered Wellington a cocktail πŸΉof creativity and one of the country’s most amazing holiday destinations; “Wellington is mind boggling in so many ways! It has given birth to some of New Zealand's most amazing Queens, Kings and Burlesque performers.“
