Myths & Monsters
In 2020 we celebrated Manchester Pride in spectacular style with a fabulous, family friendly digital drag show, Queer Tales: Myths and Monsters.
Watch the show here or on our YouTube channel.
The following week we hosted Queer Tales: A Conversation, a panel discussion that responded to the Queer Tales: Myths and Monsters show and LGBTQ+ inclusion in museums.
Meet the artists
Lill is a drag artist from Manchester. Part of the Family Gorgeous, star of Channel 4's Drag SOS and all-round good time gal. Makeup artist and wardrobe mistress by day, and by night - who knows?
Cheddar Gorgeous is a non-binary drag artist, storyteller and self-professed alien, unicorn, idealist. Cheddar uses the platform of drag to educate, create communities and comment on current affairs. They are also the co-creator of the hugely successful Channel 4 Television show, Drag SOS, helping humans across the UK to build self-confidence, explore identity and express their inner fabulous through the power of drag.
Beyonce Holes / Adam Lowe
Beyonce Holes is the alter ego of poet Adam Lowe. Adam is of mixed Afro-Caribbean-Irish heritage, although much of his heritage remains apocryphal, with stories of a Portuguese naval medic and a melancholy Scottish pirate. Beyonce Holes typically works with drag as a way to embrace radical change and storytelling. At night, she likes to sneak political messages past her audiences through fierce looks and lots of attitude. During the daytime, Adam uses his poetry to remix myth and legend, and celebrate his heritage as a mixed-race, disabled queer person in Manchester.
The Vicar's Daughter / The Altar Boy
Hi. I'm The Vicar's Daughter (They/Them). I perform as both a Drag Queen and a Drag King taking inspiration from philosophy, theology, art and literature. Excellent drag name don't you think? Fun Fact: My dad really is a vicar. I suppose life can be a little strange when your dad does PR for one of the world’s most famous celestial celebrities. Our jobs aren't too dissimilar when you think about it... Every weekend we both put on a silly costume, get up on stage in front of a room full of people and tell stories. The stories we tell have a common moral: to love, accept and celebrate everyone and everything without judgement.
