Channel 4’s in-house creative agency, 4Creative, has created a fab new version of the British national anthem to mark the launch of Channel 4’s new make-over show Drag SOS.

‘God Save All Queens’ was written and produced in partnership with Siren and includes such lyrics as: ‘We’ll be fantabulous / Transform be glorious / You could be one of us / God save all queens’.

Better than the original 

The rewrite of this historic song is brought to life in a bold and celebratory film featuring Manchester-based drag collective The Family Gorgeous, and drag queens from around the country.

Jonas Roth and Rasmus Smith-Bech, Creative Directors, 4Creative, said: “The UK has come a long way and we wanted to create an anthem reflecting today’s progressive world. 

“A song which challenges prejudice, champions confidence, and celebrates drag and the sense of belonging it brings”.
