Madonna, Tokischa, Arca and Sevdaliza join forces at Pride

Madonna appeared at Brooklyn’s LadyLand festival on Saturday to bid farewell to Pride month. In her first appearance on stage since the end of her Celebration Tour in Brazil, Madonna did not perform, but instead participated in a competition called Vogue Ball House Battle, judging the voguing dancers who have appeared on stage.

Madonna has not taken the stage alone, but has done so accompanied by her friends Tokischa, Arca, Sevdaliza and Bob the Drag Queen. With Tokischa, Madonna collaborated on the single ‘Hung Up on Tokischa’ (2022), while she gave Sevdaliza a “cameo” in the video for ‘Nothing Lasts Forever’. Madonna has been seen coinciding with Arca on several occasions, also on the Celebration Tour. Of course, Bob the Drag Queen was the host of the tour.

In LadyLand, Madonna gave a short speech for Pride, especially dedicated to New York: “New York Pride is the most important day of the year, apart from my birthday,” the artist declared. “Thanks to New York, without you I am nothing.”
