Alex Klaasen carried on with the shows, unintentionally, to empower

It was not an explicit objective of the Alex Klaasen to get the road case to be made for gender, but with the play of his most recent performance, Showponies, he noticed that it was happening.

“Last year, I saw many young boys in the room,” says the 43-year-old comedian who acts concerning, among others, a transgender woman snow white and mermaid, in the Showponies and processed in Winq.

“As a fifteen year old kid à sixteen. Along with their mother. I can see that this guy is aware that he is gay. And I don’t see that his mother and he knows it, but that they do not have to. I feel that I know how good it is for them to be there, in that room, that feeling of comfort with the other. This is so touching and moving.”

Klaasen, who, as of september of this year, touring with the Showponies 2, the hope is that these guys are after the show with their mother to talk to. “I just got an e-mail from a guy, who with his family had come to see, and on the same day in the evening, out of the closet came to be. I think that it’s crazy.”
