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.
In the words of drag philosopher RuPaul, "We are all born naked, and the rest is drag."
My Drag Story uncorsets queens, kings and gender-defying royals to reveal what’s beyond the painted façade. Premiering to rave reviews at the 2021 festival, My Drag Story features a brand spanking, glittery new line up.
