MELT’s showstopper event returns to crown the best of the best with this year’s MELT Beauty Pageant! Join us as some of Brisbane’s best drag talent battle it out to win the ultimate title of MELT Beauty 2021.

While this may look like your ordinary beauty pageant, we challenge our contestants to show us their true beauty, whatever form that may take. Join in the chaos as the contestants go head to head across a number categories, all vying for the role of Brisbane’s most vivacious drag queen, drag king or gender blending beauty.

Join an all-star judging panel and the infamous Tina Bikki as host for a sickening selection of some of Brisbane’s best drag performers!


We take the safety of our patrons, staff and artists seriously.
