What makes a good drag club, you ask?
Well, we feel that if you leave a drag show feeling confident, self-assured, and completely in love with yourself…then we’re sorry, but the drag queens did NOT do their job.
“At a good drag show, you are going to be insulted. You are going to be offended. You are going to question your self-worth – and you’re going to lap it all up.”
In all seriousness, drag shows are a lot of fun – and we’ve rarely come across a bad drag act, due to the fact that you can’t define drag as just one thing. There are so many different kinds of drag acts, such as drag queens, drag kings, bioqueens, genderf**k drag acts, and celebrity impersonators! There are fishy queens, butch queens, glamour queens, fashion queens, campy queens, and honey, that barely scratches the surface!
London is bursting with drag talent – and we’ve had the good fortune of seeing a lot of it. There is such a diverse and cultured drag scene, so if you see one drag show that wasn’t your cup of tea, then sweetie, try a different pot because there is something out there that is right for you.
We’ve put together a list of some of the best drag bars/shows in the city, and we hope it will give you the inspiration to go out and see a show!
