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, fabulous shopping stores, runways with Q&A sessions, meet and greets, official merchandise, a drag market and more.

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.

DragExpo is owned and operated by In The Dark Presents (, Australia’s leading LGBTQI+ production company which has produced hundreds of RuPaul’s Drag Race tours in Australia and New Zealand over the past ten years. For more information or to be apart please contact for all enquiries.
