Hannah Conda On Drag Race Down Under Season 2
Hannah Conda came out at the age of 17. Her mother knew that she was gay so she came out as gay to her family. At the age of 18, she went to the court hotel. There, she saw “wild beasts” who were drag queens, it was her first introduction to the drag world. Her first thought upon seeing them was “Wow! they are scary, I wanna be one of those”.
Her friend Ruby who just started doing drag offered to help her with the makeup. It was going to be a one-night thing. Her first spot was Wear My Kiss by Sugababes (remix). It has been twelve years and she is still shining in the drag world.
In February 2020, while interviewing with AlrightHey, Hannah learned about Drag Race Down Under. In midst of the interview, Hannah started singing “RuPaul Cast Me On Your Show, If You Don’t I’ll Explode”. She didn’t appear in the first season, but in season 2, the queen is here.
After the song, Hannah shared that she wanted to audition to be on the show as it has always been her goal. She added, “I would love to do it… on my home soil, with my Australian sisters because I think we’d make a great TV”.

Hannah Conda Job
In Sydney, Hannah Conda was running an entertainment venue called The Court Hotel where she started. She was putting and producing shows at the venue. She also had a day job at the Sunglass Hut.
Hannah always had plans to move and didn’t know where but when she started coming to Sydney she realized it was the place she wanted to be.
So, Hannah started working and saving money. She planned the move 6 or 7 months before she actually did it. So, when it was time to do it. she swapped her day job. Although drag was her part-time job she earned a full-time income from it, and her job at Sunglass Hut became her side job.
Four months after moving to Sydney, Hannah quit her day job and she is thankful for it. She didn’t care because she was calling in sick to do her drag.
Hannah has also been doing story time in costume for kids at childcare centers and libraries for about five years. She says that she was one of the first drag queens to bring the phenomenon to Sydney. She loves working with children because “they take you for face value”.
Speaking with Sydney Morning Herald, Hannah added, “You learn that behaviors adults have are learned; like intolerance and homophobia and transphobia and bigotry. Kids take you at face value and are kind and loving”.
The drag queen also tried to establish a world record for the largest drag queen story-time at Mardi Gras in 2020.
Coming to who inspires her, Hannah shared that it was her parents who are hardworking people. She also learned authenticity and honesty from her parents. She lives by the motto that her father instilled in her, “Prior Preparation Prevents Pis*-Poor Performance”. In terms of drag, she is inspired by anyone’s courage to get up and do it.
Hannah was also critical of a bill introduced to Federal Parliament last week by One Nation senator Pauline Hanson that sought to prohibit “indoctrination of children” in schools. Among other things, the bill seeks to ban “controversial sexual programs that teach gender fluidity”.
Hannah said Senator Hanson’s views are out of touch with the world. She added, “Gender fluidity has been around for probably hundreds of years, it’s just now as a human race we’re starting to be OK with that and talk about it”.
