What folx have said about previous workshops:

“This was my first experience of learning to be a drag king. It was packed with loads of useful information and helpful tips.”

“I learned a huge amount in just this one workshop. It was just enough information to get me started with drag as well as getting to learn some of its history.”

“An invaluable opportunity to learn from seasoned performers with real life experience delivered in an honest, practical and inspiring way.”

He is also the driving force behind Shut Up & King - a Glasgow-based platform for Scottish drag kings everywhere - and his drag king workshops have spawned a multitude of drag kings across the world, including the award-winning Mitch Bitchpleaser (Shanghai) and Scotland's hottest drag king boi band, The Tackleberries.

ABOUT ARROW
