  • What is Naarm?
    Naarm is the Indigenous name for the land on which Melbourne is located. The Wurundjeri people are the traditional custodians of this land. The use of Indigenous names is a way to recognize and honor the traditional owners of the land.
  • Why do you use the name Naarm instead of Melbourne?

It is also a way to promote reconciliation and raise awareness about the history of colonialism and its impact on the Indigenous peoples of Australia.

  • Is Performers of Pride family-friendly?
    Absolutely! Performers of Pride celebrates the art of drag and the diverse and inclusive community that surrounds it. While some drag performances may include adult themes or language (these are either marked as 18+ or held in 18+ venues), many performers also tailor their acts to be appropriate for all ages. We believe that drag is a form of self-expression and art that can be enjoyed by people of all ages, and we strive to provide a safe and welcoming space for everyone to enjoy. At the moment, with many family-friendly drag events being targeted by a small minority of the general public, we have elected to NOT list family-friendly events for safety reasons. If we were to share the events, we may increase unwanted attention on these events, and that's the last thing we want! We hope that the situation will change and we will be able to include a family-friendly section in the future safely.
