London Gay Bar Raises Money for Australian Wild Fire with Marathon Drag-a-Thon


A gay bar in London has organized a 12-hour drag-a-thon as a fundraiser to help the recovery of the massive bushfires in Australia that have already killed more than a billion animals, and 24 people. In addition, more than 2,00 homes have been destroyed and 25 million acres of land have been laid to waste.


The fundraising drag-a-thon is scheduled for January 26th, which is Australia Day in England. The event will take place at the Two Brewers Bar, which has been serving the South London LGBTQ+ community for 35 years, and will feature 17 acts who will perform from 2:00 in the afternoon until 2:00 in the morning. Two of the performers, Karla Bear and Shae G’Day are both Australian-themed drag performers so they bring an authentic texture to the event.


The entry fee is only eight pounds, but patrons can also make donations at the bar and a separate fundraising site has also been set up. Even American can make a donation through this link here.
