Get DRAGGED with Strykermeyer!

Ever wanted to find your inner drag queen? or your inner drag king?? or have the opportunity play with gender expression??? Now's your chance with FC and Strykermeyer!

Strykermeyer was the makeup artist and drag queen consultant of Australian film 'The Adventures of Pricilla Queen of the Desert'. In fact the story of Pricilla was loosely based on his friend and fellow drag queen Cindy Pastel and he won a BAFTA for the makeup art on Pricilla!

Strykermeyer will be joining FC's Outspace sessions to teach us the ins and outs of Drag!
The times for the 'Get Dragged at Outspace' sessions are;
Sat 16th August 12-4pm
Sat 30th August 12-4pm
Sat 13th September 11am-5pm

You can come to as many or few of the sessions as you like and you can get involved however you like - we will be taking photos and filming the workshops, and you can get drag king-ed, drag queen-ed or both!

Strkermeyer will be helping us get ready for the Pride Parade too!

The 2008 Pride Parade is on Saturday 25th October. FC will be open from 11am that day so we can get all made up for the parade. Freedom Centre, Strykermeyer, Gay & Lesbian Community Services and True Colours will all be marching together! For more info about FC in the Pride Parade go to the FC events page

So come to FC and GET DRAGGED! But make sure you email Dani on to find out what you should bring, wear etc. See you there!!
