Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras in association with FEM Presents My Drag Story. Curated by Anthony Carthew (Amelia Airhead)

Featuring Amelia Airhead, Cindy Pastel, Nana Miss Koori, Sexy Galexy + more to be announced!

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 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, "We are all born naked, and the rest is drag."

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