Debbie Bryan, 18 St Mary's Gate, Nottingham, NG11PF

Tickets £4 

A live performance, talk, and Q&A session hosted by local drag artists Nana Arthole and Marilyn Sane. This first event of the series will take you back to school for a herstory lesson, as Nana and Marilyn walk you through the when, why, how, who and “Are you serious”? of drag as they know it. Together, they’ll be exploring, educating and possibly disagreeing on topics such as the UK versus US drag legacies, this last decade’s drag explosion, and why drag in the community matters, before opening up the discussion for a Q&A session where no question is off limits!
