Join Mockie Ah at House for two drag-filled events of tour-de-force of camp, comedy, absolute bangers, and sparkling sequins.
Mochie Ah are Ireland’s biggest Drag Haus and queer collective. Mockie Ah is a celebration of all things camp, queer, nostalgic and oh so very Irish. It is a safe space where everyone is welcomed, loved, embraced, and covered in glitter!
The first Mockie Ah at House event for Limerick Pride 2022 is legendary club night ‘Mockie Ah’ on Thursday, July 7 at Amber Nightclub from 9 pm. The event will feature Candy Warhol, Lavender, Shaqira Knightly and Viola Gayvis and a plethora of special guests for a massive club night.
On Sunday, July 10, Dragged to Brunch takes place at House Limerick from 1pm with the drag queens of Mockie Ah!, Candy Warhol, Dakota Mode and Ellie Uminate hosting a series of Drag Shows, Bingo, games and plenty of disco at House Limerick from 2 pm. Booking essential!
The legendary Haus was founded in 2017 as a response to the lack of queer spaces by leading Irish drag artist Candy Warhol (Comedy Central’s Dragony Aunts) who will be hosting the events.
The Cork City-based collective has gone from strength with regular national cabaret shows, club nights and appearances across Europe. In 2019 the queens were featured on Ireland AM’s pride special and in 2021 a critically acclaimed documentary focusing on the group, ‘Kin Of Kweens’, was broadcast on RTÉ.
The group was later featured on BBC’s Travel Show where they were highlighted as a top Irish attraction. Mockie Ah is a celebration of all things camp, queer, and nostalgia. It is a safe space where everyone is welcomed, loved, embraced, and covered in glitter!
Limerick Pride LGBTQ Festival 2022 will be taking place starting from Monday, July 4 until Sunday, July 10 with the Parade on Saturday, July 9and will feature a multitude of events from workshops, support meetings and discussions to evenings of music and club nights, to cater to the Pride needs of everyone. The theme this year is ‘Pride is Culture’ to shed light on the joy and resilience of artists and cultural creators within the LGBTQIA+ community.
