Sportsman Hotel To Hold Next ‘Drag Swap Meet’


Vollie Lavont and Celeste

Want to score a bargain for your next drag show? Brisbane’s Sportsman Hotel will hold their second ever “Drag Swap Meet” later this month.

In May, people turned out to see a wonderful array of glamorous frocks, fabric, shoes, wigs, jewelery and makeup on offer at the inaugural event, as several local drag stars and vendors sold, bought and swapped items.

The money raised from gold coin donations and stall charges was donated to Brisbane’s Open Doors Youth Service.

The venue will hold another one, on Saturday August 12. Doors open from 1pm on the day, and nibbles will be available. Entry is a $1 gold coin donation and table fees are $3, with all money raised again going to Open Doors Youth Service. Tables are limited, and bookings are essential.

Call the Sportsman Hotel on 3831 2892 or visit the event’s Facebook page for more information.
