Drag contest

You are here:

Become Icon of CSD Leipzig!

In line with our motto at the time, “The future is queer!”, we have given our traditional drag contest for CSD 2023 an extensive update. We want to give this part of the queer community the stage it deserves: the Icon of CSD Leipzig Drag Contest!

Drag always has its finger on the pulse, is constantly changing and produces real icons that enrich the world with their glamour. Whether you dance, sing, do comedy or have completely different talents. Whether King, Queen, Quing or Creature. You are invited! We want to show Drag as colourful as it really is. You can find more information about the contest in our call for entries.

You want to show yourself? The future of drag is in your hands! Apply now and become our Icon of CSD Leipzig 2024! Show us your art in a form of your choice! Simply fill out the form below. You can find more information about the contest in our call for entries.

As we all know: Drag is a fight, drag is a protest! If you take part, you should know the demands we are demonstrating for and be able to agree with them. Feel free to get involved in the political process and let us know what you are demanding! That way, you can help shape the queer future at this level too.

We look forward to hearing from you!
