In conversation: Mama G and Sister Sister

Admission Free, booking required
Start Time 13:00
End Time 15:00

In 2023 storytelling events by drag performers were targeted by protestors claiming that it was inappropriate for children. Vast numbers counter protested in what, for many, was seen as a stand for LGBTQ+ rights.

In this event they will speak to two performers who utilise elements of drag and dameship within their acts to weave stories and to teach lessons. They will look at the history of drag and dameship, listen to the lived experience of these performers and consider why in 2023 this suddenly became decisive headline-grabbing news.

You will hear from-

Mama G

Mama G draws on a centuries-long tradition of Pantomime Dameship to teach children (and adults) stories about loving who you are and loving who you want. She recently shot to fame on Britain’s Got Talent with a whole host of dames, showcasing the diversity of this artform.

Sister Sister

Sister Sister rose to fame when appearing on RuPaul’s Drag Race UK. Since then she has performed all over Britain and beyond and has been a vocal activist speaking out against online abuse.

In this special event we will hear their individual stories and you will have the opportunity to ask questions and delve into the world of performance, queenship, dameship, gender, and storytelling.
