Entire cities are in different stages of lockdown due to coronavirus, causing LGBTQI+ show venues and nightclubs around the world to temporarily close their doors.

The effects of this, and the inability to connect in person, has proved tough for all of everyone. The queer community would normally head out to party and watch the queens perform, for the community and sense of belonging that comes with it.

Our local drag queens have therefore decided to start streaming their acts live to help raise our collective spirits during lockdown. 

Going digital has changed the way we do drag, but it also allows us to share a message of hope and kindness and self-care.
