Adam All and Apple Derrieres

Dynamite drag duo

Dynamite Drag duo Adam All and Apple Derrieres are a couple in and out of Drag; they have been together for seven years and performing together for five years. Together they have taken the cabaret world by storm, pushing the squabbles to the side to perform internationally together with their unique brand of live blended vocals, coordinated couture and cartoon flavoured Drag. Adam & Apple are huge advocates of the LGBTQI+ scene and have performed and hosted at countless Pride events and venues across London and beyond, their aim being to bring visibility to AFAB love, people and performers, particularly within the Cabaret scene. In addition to performing, cooking and occasionally sleeping together, they also run and host the acclaimed Drag King night BOiBOX which has been described as ‘London’s vital Drag King showcase’ in TimeOut and the ‘cornerstone of the UK Drag King Scene’.

If you could change one thing about the world through your work, what would it be?

We have a simple mantra: we can do it, together. Collaborating, working together and supporting each other has been our foundation. Together we are stronger. Together we can make the world a better place.
