TORTUGA STUDIOS x DEEP SEA ASTRONAUTS present QUEER BEASTS Meet curiously exquisite creations that channel the raw performative beauty of Sydney's LGBTQIA+ community

QUEER BEASTS are borne of drag detritus, the broken, discarded and cast-off bits that litter the floor once the costume is complete.

Flecked with sparkle, pleated in pleather, sequinned, stylish and ever shameless, these creatures hold power and pride in their hearts, reflecting the ‘othering’ of the LGBTQIA+ community and the powerful performative reaction that has grown from this demonisation.

Meet these beautiful beasts – and walk with the drag kings and queens who inspired them – on Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings during September as part of Sydney Fringe Sideshow.
