Drag acts from the past and present will be donning their highest heels and most glamorous gowns for a special fundraising event being held next month.
On Sunday July 13, Boulevard cabaret club, Churchill Street, Newcastle, will be taking visitors on a journey through the history of drag for a special evening of entertainment in aid of leading LGBT charity, Northern Pride.
The aptly-named Dragged Through the Generations, which is open to ages 18 and above, will feature performances by some of the North East’s best-loved female impersonators, many of whom have been working the circuit for years.
This includes Anna Morphic and October De Winter, who were crowned Drag Idol winners in 2013 and 2014 respectively, along with Boulevard’s own Betty Legs Diamond and compere Miss Rory.
Proceeds from the event, which is being held in the build up to the annual Newcastle Pride festival, will be donated directly to Northern Pride to help promote equality for the LGBT community and ensure the popular Pride festival remains free in future years.
Tickets for Dragged Through the Generations are available direct from Boulevard.
