Manchester Drag Symposium

The first Manchester Drag Symposium is a unique event. We see the Symposium as an opportunity to bring together performers, academics, artists, and others to share their knowledge, stories, histories and ideas. We hope that the Symposium will  create an event which is stimulating, challenging, educational, unique and glamorous!
