WERRRK.com has proudly partnered up with the Austin International Drag Festival this year and we have been given the privilege of announcing this year’s headliners first! We are so excited about being a part of this amazing event this year and we cannot wait to bring you all the fabulous drag artists that are going to be headlining this year!
Congratulations on being named a headliner Discord! How did you get involved with the Austin International Drag Festival and what does this opportunity mean to you?
I’ve always wanted to do the Festival and when they reached out to me wanting me to headline I almost couldn’t believe it! Feels like a real milestone in my career getting to share my art with such a wide audience!! The opportunity means the world to me! Since I started performing my only goal has been to share my art with the world and use my platform for good.
For those people living under a rock, can you tell us a little bit about you and your drag?
Discord is high fashion and rock n roll! I’ve always viewed drag queens as the modern day rock stars and now I’m here to show the world how true that is! In a world where new drag queens pop up everyday (as they should), it’s important to have queens pushing boundaries and making the world stop and think. Especially in the political climate we have right now.
We can’t wait to see what you’re planning on bringing to the stage in Austin! Can you give the WERRRK .com universe a little tease of what’s to come this fall in Texas?
I’m very excited to be bringing my drag band to Austin! Kat Sass and I recently grouped together to create Dame Judy. We want to be the forefront of queer rock n roll and we’re ready to take over the world! I’ll be packing up my guitar and heading to Texas for an experience everyone will be talking about! My partner Gidget Von Addams will be here with us as well bringing her intergalactic high fashion world straight to Austin!
