My Drag Story

June 19 @ 3:30 pm - 5:30 pm AEST

$39.00
my drag story

Presented by Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras in association with FEM Presents

Curated by Anthony Carthew and hosted by Amelia Airhead

With Priscilla, Queen of the Desert  stamped on our national identity and Drag Race sashaying across screens there’s no doubt drag has sunk its six-inch heels into the mainstream.

Fabulous glamour, outrageous shade and shouts of ‘Yaas queen!’ or ‘G’day darl!’ are now familiar scenes not only along our inner-city rainbow strips but across our suburban landscape of pubs, clubs and backyards.

From the heady days of Oxford Street’s “Golden Mile” to the diverse fabulousness many decades later – our nation’s alumni of drag artists have proudly carved a cheeky and quintessentially Aussie path through our cultural playbook.

The ultimate expression of queerness, drag has often been a defiant voice for our communities – in a passionate celebration of pride and rage against injustice.

Premiering to rave reviews at the 2021 festival, My Drag Story uncorsets a brand spanking, glittery new line up of drag legends and up-and-coming royalty including Bee Dazzled Shanks Prince of RedfernDizzy BilityDorreen ManganiniMinnie Cooper and the one and only Miss 3D.

Tickets now on sale.
