On Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th January 2020 – The first ever DragCon UK was opened by Drag Race host and Emmy ® Award-winner RuPaul. I was there to record a radio show for Maritime FM that was broadcast on the 28th January. I have now uploaded it to my You tube where you can listen again ( see below).
RuPaul was around the con for both days appearing in panel discussions Djing a dance party both days in the main arena, and also Ru met fans and signed autographs at the official dragCon merch booth where I was lucky to meet RuPaul. Can I just say that Ru has an even more infectious laugh in person, What a pleasure to meet THE QUEEN.
As well as all the entertainment the arena was filled with stalls, make over stations and photo opportunities, ( some of which I had to take advantage of).
I loved meeting the guests in the press room and in their booths, everyone was really warm and lovely and the weekend was full of fun, laughter, positivity and for me an insite in to the world of drag.
Thank you to the guests that had time to chat to me for my radio show and to everyone I met there. I hope this event becomes an annual one- but I think you are going to need a bigger space.
See I had lots of fun!!! I even bumped in to Todrick Hall and Vanessa Williams – what a total treat. The Brit Crew were too much fun.
