Drag queen Courtney Act is heading to National Student Pride 2018. 

After her time in the Celebrity Big Brother house, the RuPaul’s Drag Race star will attend National Student Pride to host their Queer Dates compeition on February 10. 

Following from Charlie Hides judging last year’s talent show and drag queen Alaska judging 2016’s Lip Sync Battle, Courtney Act will host a Blind Dates parody called Queer Dates after a short Q&A about her time in the Big Brother house.

The segment will see blind contestants pick from a selection of LGBT+ celebrities and activists to be their date.

And you can now apply to be one of those contestants and win a date with the likes of: 

  • Callum Scott, best known for his rendition of ‘Dancing On My Own’
  • Made In Chelsea’s Ollie Locke
  • Nail Transphobia queen Charlie Craggs
  • Queer Britain documentary host Riyadh Khalaf

And there are also two more special guests waiting to be announced. 

But if that isn’t enough for you, you’ll also win a date to a French-bistro inspired treat in the Queer Dates hideaway.

National Student Pride focuses on highlighting LGBT+ youth homelessness, being non-binary, bisexuality and body confidence.

Students are invited to enter to win the chance to participate in Queer Dates, all you need to do is persuade Courtney to pick you. You can enter here.

National Student Pride starts February 9-11, 2018.
