Minnie Cooper

 
 

Legend has it, Minnie was abandoned as a baby and left in the doorway of Arq Nightclub.

Thankfully, she was adopted and raised by drag queens who taught her all about miming, glitter lipstick, platform heels and everything in-between.

Minnie was the reigning queen of Sydney’s premier nightclub Arq for fifteen years, producing award-winning shows and driving Sydney’s partygoers wild with excitement. She has produced and choreographed many large-scale spectacles at events such as Mardi Gras and Sleaze Ball, and has worked with stars including Jimmy Barnes, Kylie Minogue, Tina Arena, Kate Miller-Heidke, David Atkins, Todd McKenney, Rhonda Burchmore and Australia’s most famous drag performer, Carlotta.

Minnie has won more Drag Industry Variety Awards (DIVAs) than just about anyone, including having been awarded the prestigious Entertainer of the Year on a record number of four occasions.

In 2016 Minnie was semi-finalist on Australia’s Got Talent combing her drag, singing and tap dancing talents. More recently she performed for Cher at the 2018 Mardi Gras parade, for Kylie Minogue at the 2019 Mardi Gras parade and appeared as a judge on Seven Network’s talent show All Together Now.

Minnie Cooper is a true legend and her superstar talent will leave you wanting more.
