Malaika Mfalme

Malaika Mfalme {Angel King} is a non-binary singer, songwriter, guitarist, and event producer creating on Gadigal Land. Malaika writes immersive and evoking music that focuses on black love, self-acceptance, grief, and the journey of being loved and sometimes lost. Malaika is here to create a safe space focused on healing with a powerful message of kindness, acceptance, and reflection that vibrates through every one of their sonic outputs. Mfalmes ink stained fingers play sweet melodic guitar alongside strikingly smooth vocals layered with a looping pedal; reminding you their name is Angel for a reason.

Kings of Joy

Kings of Joy is a community initiative that gives first-time Drag Kings the opportunity to perform in drag and lean into the masculine in a supported, group environment. The values that Kings of Joy uphold are joy, fun, inclusivity, anti-racism, non-toxic masculinity, a celebration of all gender expressions, and what’s possible when we encourage and support each other.

Kings of Joy is the brainchild of Danica Lani and was born out of her spouse, Chris McAllister’s performance event for trans and gender-diverse artists, Queers of Joy. Danica and Chris met in a Drag King group and both experienced first-hand the fun, friendship, and sheer elation of performing on stage with a Drag King crew. They wanted to give this experience away to other people in the queer community.

Since then the Kings of Joy Gold Stars program has developed into a full 6-week program. Each participant is a first-time Drag King and many have never performed on stage before. Together, they go from zero to hero to invent a Drag King name, backstory, persona, costume, and makeup, and perform together in a group. This process has taken individual Drag Kings 3+ years to do by themselves.

After community consultation, the Kings of Joy Pay It Forward program was implemented to keep Kings of Joy Gold Stars barrier-free for all members of the queer community and to create a sustainable model for continuing the program

To date (19/11/22), Danica has facilitated 14 Kings of Joy groups (including the All-Stars and a group done online from Melbourne) and mentored and produced  64 brand-new, first-time Drag Kings.
