QueerFest is Saints LGBT+’s week-long queer culture festival that we focus on arts and history. Headlined perennially by Drag Walk, the sell-out student drag competition, QueerFest brings together events and collaborations with other university societies, performers and organisations from around Scotland that showcase the presence and influence of LGBTQ+ people across literature, dance, nightlife, music, film and more.
QueerFest 2022 saw the second installment of the Memories Project to document the queer experience in St Andrews, a panel on queer inclusivity in curriculums, the return of the Arts Bash, and much more. Drag Walk 2022 will be held in March this year so get ready for more St Andrews drag excellence! You can find the QueerFest and Drag Walk Instagram page here.
Drag Walk is an annual student drag competition put on by Saints LGBT+. Started by RuJazzle, the sell-out show features student monarchs fighting through challenges to be crowned St Andrews’ next drag superstar. Fierce performances in the halftime show snatch wigs without fail. The drag community in St Andrews is growing, and while this show-stopping contest is not to be missed, this isn’t the only chance you’ll get to see drag artists take the stage.
