About this Event

Featuring Amelia Airhead, Cindy Pastel, Nana Miss Koori, Sexy Galexy and Kiki Fetch.

With Priscilla, Queen of the Desert stamped on our national identity and Drag Race sashaying across screens there’s no doubt Drag has sunk it’s 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 all 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.

In the words of drag philosopher RuPaul, "You are born naked, and everything else is drag.”

My Drag Story uncorsets six queens, kings and gender defying royals to reveal what’s beyond the painted façade.
