Shut Up & King is a Glasgow-based platform for Scottish drag kings everywhere, created to connect, grow and diversify the Scottish drag king scene through a program of workshops, mentorship and shows. Through our social media, we spotlight Scotland based drag kings to reach wider audiences and elevate underrepresented drag artists.
We currently run a program of online interactive workshops as more inclusive and accessible ways to engage, collaborate with and to support the artistic journeys of people interested in this art form. These workshops cover a range of drag king related skills such as makeup, costuming, and performance and fully equip participants with the resources, practical skills and tools needed to create in these challenging times.
We have also created a Scholarship to increase the diversity in the Scottish drag king scene and help build a performing king community rich in cultures and experiences. These scholarship opportunities are available and open to individuals of any gender who are ordinarily resident in Scotland and who also identify as disabled and/or a person of colour/black, asian and minority ethnic (BAME) background.
