A world that is a form of art: expressive, colourful and inclusive. We want to bring the drag queen phenomenon closer to our viewers and consolidate TVN’s position as a progressive station. Behind each costume, there is a moving story, and Drag Me Out forms a key part of our spring schedule.”

This is what Drag Me Out is;  a combination of emotional stories, amazing metamorphoses and unforgettable and, above all, brave stage performances, that we haven’t seen on TV before!”
