Attention all drag enthusiasts! Australia’s first-ever Drag Expo is coming to Sydney, and it’s going to be fabulous! This three-day extravaganza will be held at the ICC Sydney from the 19th to the 21st of May 2023, and it promises to be an event you won’t want to miss.
The Drag Expo will be a celebration of all things drag, and it will feature some of the biggest names from the Drag Race franchise. That’s right, you’ll get to see your favourite queens from Drag Race US, including Alaska 5000, Jinkx Monsoon, Monet X Change, and Trinity the Tuck. And that’s not all; Drag Race UK’s Baga Chipz, Sminity Drop, and A Whora will also be in attendance. And of course, Australia’s own Art Simone and Vanity will be there to represent the local drag scene.
So what can you expect from the Drag Expo? Well, there will be live performances from the queens, as well as meet and greet opportunities where you can snap a selfie with your favourite stars. There will also be drag workshops, where you can learn all the tips and tricks of the trade from the queens themselves. And if you’re in the market for some new drag gear, you’ll be able to shop at the Drag Expo’s marketplace, where you’ll find everything from wigs and makeup to costumes and accessories.
But that’s not all; the Drag Expo will also have a range of panels and discussions, covering topics such as drag culture, history, and politics. You’ll have the opportunity to engage with the queens and other drag enthusiasts and learn more about this vibrant and exciting community. From technical tucks to mental health, there’s no area that won’t be plucked and no wig left unturned over the two days. Learn how drag has evolved over the years, how Australia has given drag our own special flavour, and how drag artists have a message we can all learn from.
If you’re a fan of drag, then the Drag Expo is the event for you. Book your tickets now, and get ready for a weekend of glitter, glamour, and fabulousness.
