Have you been glued to House of Drag? Do you have fabulous wigs and false nails? Could you give RuPaul a run for her money?   

We’re looking for the fiercest, most sparkling queens in the south to join us in celebrating drag culture and talent for the Auckland Pride Festival. 

Express yourself as we share what it means to be unapologetically drag in 21st century Auckland in an evening of unforgettable entertainment. 

Apply now to take part in a showcase of southside drag queen talent and creativity.

You will slay the runway with an amazing costume you have designed and made on the theme of Pride; do a star turn with your top talent; then duel it out in a fierce lip sync battle.  

There are fabulous prizes for the category winners – costume design, talent and lip sync – as well as a stunning prize pack and title for the overall winner, the Queen of the South.

8pm on Friday 15 February at the Te Puke o Tara Community Centre.

Join us for two nights of laughs with your delightful and delicious hostess with the mostest Taro Patch.

From a 4 year old boy to a 57 year old woman. Julia Clement's one woman memoir tells the true story of the 53 years between her first questioning her gender identity and first stepping out of the closet and onto the stand-up comedy stage as herself. 

The show is sometimes funny and sometimes tragic without sacrificing truth as Julia tells the story of 10 years coming to full understanding followed by 40 years of struggling to find ways to avoid her own inner truth."
