Local Drag: Birmingham

Here is the second of my local drag posts with some wonderful talent from Birmingham! Special shoutout to Fern (follow them!) for helping me out with this and helping me find some new performers myself.

Drag Punk are an alternative drag collective made up of Amber Cadaverous, Lilith, Paul Aleksandr and Tacky. The group host events at the Nightingale such as emo night “I’m Not Okay”, which is now a monthly event, and just finished supporting adore on her UK tour, so the chances are that you’ve heard of them!
