Drag Idol still remains one of the few competitions on the live scene that can genuinely launch careers on the drag and cabaret circuit and has produced some of the brightest talents on the queer and cabaret scene including La Voix, Louis CyFer, SonofaTutu, Kelly Mild, Danny Beard, Baga Chipz, Martha D’Arthur, Tanya Hyde, Tracy Barlow and last years’ winner; Felix Le Freak to name a few. Even contestants who don’t win have attributed their subsequent careers to the exposure that drag Idol bought them.
Get ready to see performances that show the breadth, richness and talent on the drag scene, this isn’t just a competition, these artists power our scene.
