Spoke with a student who is attending Sunderland University who took part in ‘Drag Idol’ which was held in Newcastle last year.
Despite only deciding to attend the competition ten minutes before, he had plenty to discuss with me and was also helpful in giving tips for those who may be starting out in drag acts themselves.
With having to meet him in a public place, we ended up sitting outside a quiet pub in town. The only downside during the recordings was some of the background noises, such as seagulls and cars, were a little bit distracting, but they can no doubt be cut during the editing process.
Overall it was a good interview.
