Following drag artists' lives beyond the stage

“Life’s a Drag”

In a year where drag artists have simultaneously met political oppression and mainstream acclaim, we want to bring clarity to this misrepresented community

Who are we?

We are a group of 3rd-year Film and Television students at the University of York, creating this documentary because we want to represent the real stories of the drag artists who dedicate their lives to this craft.

We are aiming to raise £2250 to create a brand new documentary that will follow drag artists out of the spotlight and discover the humanity behind the extraordinary personas, and the grit that shapes the glamour.

Any donation you are able to make to help us reach this goal would be much appreciated.

Our story

We believe we can document footage that can break stereotypes and assumptions that people may have about drag artists, and bring down barriers by delving into their life behind the stage. We want to intimately portray the lives of drag artists off stage and explore the history and reality of the modern UK Drag scene.

Budget Breakdown

Our fundraised money will go towards the many requirements of creating a production - all documentaries come at a cost. We need funds for travel, catering, accommodation and much more.

If your generosity exceeds, we can take our finished documentary to film festivals and other external promotion opportunities, distributing our documentary even further afield.

By donating to this project, you can help make this documentary happen. We can't do this without you.
