The eight talented Brisbane drag performers competing in this year’s Miss Sportsman Hotel drag pageant at the Brisbane venue have been confirmed.

Every year for decades, a new crop of Queensland queens have gone head-to-head at The Sportsman Hotel, proudly Brisbane’s Home of Drag.

And the Miss Sporties drag pageant will return to the venue on Saturday week (November 4, 2023). This year’s contest has a Glee theme.

Performers Maxi-Bon, Ladybird, Evalyn Eatdith, Camilla, Malvadine, Helen Wheels, Wilhelmina Westwood and Dolly Kicks are all competing for the title.

Drag Hall of Fame legend Miss Synthetique will host as the queens go through multiple rounds of stage and crowd work.

Each year, the Sportsman Hotel’s panel of distinguished guest judges decide the winner of Miss Sporties.
