Drag Expo 2022
August 6 @ 8:30 am - August 7 @ 2:30 pm
Get ready, Australia! The nation’s foremost celebration of everything drag, kitsch and pop-culture is coming to Melbourne in August 2022 as DragExpo makes its inaugural sashay into the Melbourne Exhibition & Convention Centre.
Set over two days, this is the chance for Australian fans to catch up with local and international drag artiste royalty including DragExpo Ambassador Karen From Finance alongside a bevy of the world’s best Drag Talent.
Visitors to DragExpo can meet the stars of RuPaul’s Drag Race, see Australia’s own drag legends and learn their inspiring stories, and enjoy a plethora of panels, tutorials, chill out spaces, performances, fabulous shopping stores, runways, Q&A sessions, meet and greets, official merchandise, a drag market and more. Each of the Rupaul Queens will have their own booth selling their exclusive merch, this is also your chance to meet your favourites!
But it’s not all glamour, glitz and glitter, gurl! 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 artistes have a message we can all learn from. Most of all, visitors can learn the power that comes from letting you be your real self, with hundreds of like-minded fans on hand to cheer you on.
