The pink dollar is indeed rising in Asia — party promoter gCircuit is having its ninth edition of its annual Songkran dance bash in Thailand this year. As such, it is no surprise that Australian event firm In The Dark has expanded into Asia with a firm footprint on Singapore and Manila.

In The Dark Asia is bringing its repertoire of hosting drag queen events into Singapore in a big way with the arrival of three alumnus of the acclaimed reality series RuPaul’s Drag Race. Willam Belli kicks things of at the tail end of January, while Adore Delano storms Singapore the following month.

Alyssa Edwards is soon to follow, confirmed In The Dark Asia, but dates are as yet unconfirmed.

Willam’s single “Boy Is A Bottom” has scored more than 16 million views on YouTube and she has been crowned as the face of fashion label American Apparel alongside fellow drag queens and RPDR alumni Courtney Act and Alaska Thunderfuck — the first drag queens to be part of a major international fashion label. She is now in a drag queen band DWV with fellow queens Vicky Vox and Detox.

Adore, on the other hand, is known much more for her singing performances than the glamorous lip-sync (sans vocals, mind you). She was the highest-charting drag queen from the RuPaul’s Drag Race alumnus on the Billboard Hot 100/200 after releasing debut effort, Till Death Do Us Party. Adore has scored more than 5.1 million hits on YouTube for her six singles she released from the album, including mid-tempo banger “I Adore U”.

Alyssa Edwards’ charming and sassy personality has granted her own web series on the YouTube channel of World Of Wonder, the production company behind RuPaul’s Drag Race. Her Secret series — collective views hover around the million mark — has her dishing her trademark insights and witty repartee from issues such as Ebola to her mentoring younger queens such as RPDR alumnus Laganja Estranja.

With Singapore’s very own drag queen superstar Becca D’Bus hosting, it’s bound to not just be a good night, but a breakthrough in drag queens putting up headlining shows next to gigs and other performances in Singapore. Drag is here to stay.
