It’s what you’ve all been waiting for – the annual DCU Drag Race is back. Winning DCU’s Best Society Event of 2018, this is not a show to miss!
There is a wonderful lineup of contestants who are all trying to win the crown such as Mommy Complex, Nara Hope, Sapphire Sweet, Damoiseau, Kara Kalua and many more. As a special treat, last year’s winner of DCU Drag Race, Gia Jones, will also be performing throughout the night.
The host of this exciting show is one of our fav queens, Veda Beaux Reves. Veda’s drag career started when she won Alternative Miss Ireland in 1999 and has only gone up from there. She has released many singles and is notoriously known for her performances at The George, Pantibar and Body and Soul 2015.
A special panel of judges has been organised, featuring all our favourites. Ireland’s Got Talent semi-finalist Paul Ryder will be judging along with one of Ireland’s leading drag queens Pixie Woo, who is also a professional makeup artist.
Maura Darragh and Phil T Gorgeous will also have a hand in picking the next winner of DCU Drag Race.
This vibrant show will be taking place on April 3 at The Button Factory, between 7:30-10:30. The show has been organised by DCU’s LGBTA Society and DCU’s Student Union. DCU Drag Race is the largest student-organised drag race in all of Ireland.
This year the show is in aid of the Transgender Equality Network Ireland (TENI). TENI is a non-profit organisation that advocates for the rights and equality of transgender people and their families. TENI is essential for supporting the trans community in Ireland.
