Paul Whelan from the Melbourne Glamourheads joined Robbie & Dean on MAD Wednesday to talk about the teams fundraiser for the International Gay and Lesbian Aquatics Associations Gay Games, Queens of the Pool.
A drag battle being held at Sircuit on Saturday 23rd March will see Melbourne Surge and the Glamourheards battle it out to raise funds which will help set-up the website and marketing to reach overseas competitors for IGLA2020 in Melbourne next year.
Hosted by Art Simone, performers Donatella Whyfe and Johnny Gash from the Glams first drag fundraiser will return as well as Todd Patrick in a show that’s not to be missed.
IGLA has been running since 1987 and formed as a spin off of the Gay Games with sports include swimming, water polo, diving, synchronised swimming and open water swimming. This year IGLA 2019 will be in New York to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall riots and next year it will be held in Melbourne. 500-600 competitors are expected to hit our shores for IGLA2020 held the week before Mardi Gras and are planning on hosting a float for competitors.
