About our guest:

Hoax started hosting during gay pride of 2011 at the door of Supperclub Amsterdam for the party Rumour Has It. Since then, she's become one of the most frequently asked hosts in Amsterdam. Hoax hosts. Hoax performs. Hoax'll do anything for money.  

As a classically trained actor, Hoax has something that most drag performers don’t have: The ability to transform and take on a character Hoax graduated from Utrecht School of Arts (HKU) in Acting in 2009 and has worked as a freelance actor ever since; working with some of the best companies and directors in Holland including: Het Zuidelijk Toneel / Matthijs Rümke, Golden Palace / Ingrid Kuijpers, Het Woud Ensemble / Christiaan Mooi, De Toneelmakerij / Ad de Bont & Liesbeth Coltof,  and many more. 

When Hoax hosts your party, Hoax lives by the golden rule set by the legendary Andy Warhol: 'It's a dictatorship at the door and a democracy on the dance floor.' Hoax has hosted several of the hottest parties in The Netherlands including: Italo Elite, (2011–2012), Homogenic (2012), Rumour Has It (2011–2012), Afterfest (2011–Now), Prefest (2012–Now), Disco Total (2011–2013), Room (2012), Cabaret Noir (2013), Reddingsfest (2013–Now), Milkshake Festival (2012), and CHAOS (2012-2013). 

As a performer, she's performed at Wasteland, Pink Istanbul, Oddball, Lalaland festival, BNN's Ruben vs. Sophie, Spuiten&Slikken, Taboobar, and Amstel54 amongst others. Hoax has also performed with the Trippin Angels on several occasions and is a part of the dj duo cu2nt (with her drag sister Heisa Jynx). Hoax spins at a lot of Dutch clubs and parties on a regular basis and has had her own club night Traffamafia since 2018. 

She also gives tours around the Amsterdam redlight district for Original Tour and works as a freelance makeup artist and stylist. As a makeup artist, she’s done shows for Bas Kosters, most looks for entertainer Sven Ratzke, and for several club nights in and around Amsterdam. As a stylist her first publication was in Ferry Manly magazine in July 2013. And, later that year, the new videos of the famous Dutch rock band Within Temptation.
