The Dragbots came together as a group in 2008 out of a merging between the Tensor Bandits, a Drag King group, and the Corsettes, a Drag Queen group.
Since 2008, we have been very fortunate to have some of the best Drag talent in Victoria and Vancouver work with our group. Our group members include previous Mr. & Miss Gay Vancouver Island, and Princess of Whales winners.
The Dragbots pride themselves on being one of the most entertaining, professional, and inclusive drag troupes in Victoria.
We believe in giving 110% to each performance, and always pushing our limits. Our group is built upon the following foundations:
- Be Professional - Dragbots strive to present a positive image not just of the LGBTQ community, but of the Drag world as well. Our shows are always on time, and we don't believe in the phrase "Drag Time". Professionalism also extends outside our group, we aim to leave the drama outside, and do not believe in 'playing politics' within our group, or within the LGBTQ community.
- Be Committed - Dragbots are committed to our regular rehearsal schedule, we are committed to helping our fellow Dragbots, and we are committed to providing the best Drag entertainment to our audience.
- HAVE FUN! - If it's not fun, it's not worth doing.
Why do drag? Because it's a freakin' blast!
Drag allows us to develop and create characters based on our personalities that we may not have the option to explore in our everyday lives.
Drag is a musical outlet, and expression of our creativity, and flexes not just our artistic abilities, but our physical abilities as well.
