Drag Kids

A documentary about young drag queens and how there’s not really a venue for them to perform. They kinda have to exist on social media.

Drag shows are traditionally held in clubs and bars, where you can’t get in if you’re underage. Pride is a great venue but drag can often be lumped together with other performers with an overtly sexual aspect, such as leather or bondage. So there’s not a lot of age-appropriate venues to take young drag queens to perform.

Which is strange when you think about it, because what could more popular among kids of every generation than getting dressed up and pretending to be your favourite pop star? There should be as many drag and vogue classes as ballet and tap. A call to local dance teachers – it’s an untapped market!
