Danny Beard

Liverpool-born drag artist Danny Beard (They/Them) is the reigning champion of season four RuPaul’s Drag Race UK, where they broke records as the first bearded Queen from all franchises across the world, to win. 

Since winning Drag Race, Danny has been in huge demand as a presenter and entertainer. They have hosted the BBC Sounds podcast Danny Beard On Same Sex Love and Marriage celebrating the ten year anniversary of same sex marriage in the UK. With the 2023 Eurovision coming to their hometown, Danny hosted Danny Beard's Beginner's Guide to Eurovision and hosted various events around the city during the festivities. They have also had a returning cameo role in Hollyoaks and was hand selected to perform at Graham Norton’s Variety performance at The O2. They have also been touring the country with their live band for a night of comedy, singing and campery.

Danny also hosts a weekly LGBTQ+ podcast, The Gossip Gays, which has recently been picked up by the Acast Creator network. Danny and co-host Billy give us a run down on the week's news, gossip, as well as turning agony aunt with hilarious consequences. 

As one of the Uk's most in demand Drag performers, they are no stranger to the main stage, being a regular Pride headliner, star of many a panto, appearing across the UK and internationally mixing club kid aesthetic with old school drag performance style.

Alongside Baileys, Danny has had a number of successful brand partnerships, including Wise, Phillips and, perfect for a performer on the road, luggage brand Away.
