Come on Drag up for George

#DragUpForGeorge is George House Trust’s latest campaign. The Manchester based HIV support charity launched the campaign last week on their social media profiles, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, with the aim of raising money and awareness for people living with HIV in the North West.

Cheddar Gorgeous and Dick Slick went to the charity’s HQ in Ardwick Green North, to help staff and volunteers ‘drag up’. Since George House Trust shared their photos online, people have been posting their #DragUpForGeorge photos and donating. If you’d like to get involved and show your support for the charity, follow their 3 steps:

To take part, follow these 3 easy steps:


This can be anything from a lick of lipstick to a full outfit. Drag Queen or King, it’s up to you.


Take a photo and post it on your social media pages, remembering to include the hashtag #DragUpForGeorge


Text DRAG32 and the amount you'd like to donate to 70070 (e.g. DRAG32 £5)
