The Big Drag Pageant

Kings, Queens and everyone in-between!

The Big Drag Pageant is coming to town, showcasing the talent, diversity, creativity and confidence that makes drag so special. Our pageants celebrate the drag community, inviting Kings, Queens, In-Betweens, Club Kids, Freaks, Exhibitionists and Super-Monsters to storm the stage and compete in an original drag showdown for the crown.

How loud can you cheer? Audiences can expect a catwalk pounding stage show featuring powerful lip-syncs, explosive artistry, revealing Q&A’s, radical politics and wigs styled for the gods, plus famous and infamous judges, special guests, press and prizes.

Our pageants feature all kinds of performance, from live music and lipsyncing to the queerest of talents; everyone is welcome on our stage. As a diverse array of drag artists compete for the title, crown, cash & fame, who will be the winner? The audience will decide!
