About Odette Hella Grand

Whether as a walking act, host or performer or model – Odette always finds time for people and there is hardly a topic she doesn’t like to deepen with her guests. Odette is a drag star to touch, she doesn’t shy away from contact and always tries to dedicate herself to all her fans. As the founder of the Basler «Gay Bingo» and the chairman of the «House of Hell» and Queen Mother of «Drag Roy-lälle-ty», it is her concern to make the local, regional and national drag scene an integral part of the Swiss entertainment world.

Since 2015 you can meet Odette on regional, national and since 2016 also on international stages. Her repertoire as a performer includes classics such as “Big Spender”, “Discarded Men” or “A Woman of Format”. With her 2.20 she is not only fascinating as a performer but also as a hostess and presenter entertaining guests from all walks of life and sexual orientations. Media call her humor and her charm a chainsaw, which is due to her very direct and critical nature. With her eternal 39 years, she likes to exaggerate the right of free speech and talks tacheles with her audience.

Odette’s career began in January 2016 and has always gone steeply upwards. Starting with the victory at the Arosa Drag Race, in autumn 2016 the crowning of Miss Heaven, one of the most important contests for drag queens in Switzerland, followed by a victory at the Miss Red Lips in Basel. The last contest that Odette competed in and also won was the benefit event at Zurich’s Weihnachsdorf. With her performance on envelopes she inspired audience and jury and at the end of the evening she was allowed to call herself Miss Pink Pricess on Ice 2016. Thus Odette has achieved what nobody before her has achieved. Four crowns in one year!

Half a year later, four of Odette’s own projects were successfully launched in Basel. As patron of “Odette’s Bingo” in the barracks, Odette and her team collected money for the youth group “anyway”, followed shortly after by the premiere of “House of Hell” in the former L39 and her own contest for her royal house, the “Drag Roy-lälle-ty”. In cooperation with Furlong another charity event took place.  A mix between rock music and drag! The “Drag Meets Rock” was performed for the first time in December 2017 and closes the series of projects. In September 2018, the series of events “The Queen’s Gathering” will also start, bringing art from the alleys of Kleinbasel to the exit mile of Basel. You can find out more under Events.
