“I started Drag maybe eight years ago…you just get addicted to it, you just keep going and going” -David (AKA Luci Furr)

RuPaul’s Drag Race has certainly catapulted the drag scene into the international spotlight, and in Adelaide it’s no different.

The city has become home to a number of Queens in recent years, with Mary’s Poppin becoming a popular spot for many in the scene, and the LGBTQIA+ community generally. From luxurious frocks to some exquisite hairstyles, the scene has been through some ups and downs in Adelaide. So just who are our Adelaide Drag Queens? What drives them? Motivates them?

Wavelength spoke with a few, including David (AKA Luci Furr), Hanz (Imelda Oro) and Ethan (Adira Oro) to find out a bit more.
