Drag Queen Felicity Frockaccino on the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras 2018

Sydney is known for three things: its beaches, its renowned Mardi Gras and its dazzling drag queens.

Felicity Frockaccino is one such drag artist of many a year whose personality and persistence in the game has led her to a special spot in the hearts of many and the rabid competition of international pop singer, Adele.

The Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras is back this March and Felicity’s love for entertaining the masses, her community and meeting people as she plays around with pretty, shiny things has earned her a spot alongside the thousands of revellers in celebrating what has been achieved in the past few months: equality for all.

For Felicity, Mardi Gras means community. It’s about love, strength, the good fight, being on the right side of history and togetherness.

A little of those warm, fuzzy realities behind the big season of celebration comes from her own experiences as living as a personality in the Sydney LGBTIQ scene, peppered with influence from the togetherness she feels from her own Italian family heritage.

“Frockaccino is my ode to my Italian heritage and being a fake lady, I thought a faux Italian name would be funny,” she says.

But familial feelings aside, Mardi Gras is a party and a time to celebrate you for you, her for her and the community for what it is. And how does she plan to do all that?

“After an entire week of being a fake lady; I am on the LOTL Magazine Float #154. Catch me in the parade and I’ll briefly be at the afterparty with my friend Cher! Then you can catch me at Disco on the Green on Sunday at Marrickville Bowling Club, which has FREE entry all day entertainment from 1pm,” she said.

Frockaccino quickly carved a name out for herself, taking cues from singer Adele, and channeling what presence and image she brings to the stage.

It’s an act that’s gone down well and earned her a spot as one of Sydney’s favourites.

Felicity Frockaccino’s top three tips to tackling drag in Sydney:

  1. On Mardi Gras: Use an umbrella and wear sensible footwear. There’s nothing worse than seeing a queen in stockings, covered in mud.
  2. On taking-up drag: DON’T DO IT! Just kidding – Do it because you want to, not because it’s what your friends are doing or because you saw it on a TV show. Drag is subjective and artistic, but you must do it on your terms.
  3. On self-improvement: Just be ready and willing to adapt and always keep learning.
