The name Whakarākei 2024 - refers to drag artists (kuīni/kīngi whakarākei), and to embellish, adorn, decorate, remix.

International Drag Day is an annual event held on July 16. It was created by Adam Stuart who says:
"International Drag Day is a day where all around the world on every gay scene we take this opportunity to celebrate and thank the drag artists that add so much to gay life and culture. This is the reason I launched this concept. I saw that there was no such day or event on an international platform in which we celebrated drag artists."

International Drag Day in Aotearoa—Whakarākei 2024—is brought to you by drag fans Sketchy QueeNZ, Drag Pops, and Rochelle Ivanson with invaluable support from Margarita Blades. Thank you Margarita!
