DRAG'D OUT BEECHWORTH is back for 2023.
Drag'd out is a Queer, inclusive Festival of the Arts. It celebrates all people within the LGBTQI+ Community and their allies. The Festivals diversity will bring together people from all walks of life as a positive platform and safe space, enabling these cultures to explore themselves, educate audiences and spread the love with entertainment. We have engaged a youth component throughout the Festival and our local schools will also be involved, which is very important to us.
