  • 2014 Sylinski networked with various LGBTQIA clubs and bars around Sydney where he was given the same outcome, when networking; being men orientated and having enough regular Drag Queen performers. Though he mentioned how having a Drag King could complement the Drag Queens and possibly bring a more diverse inclusive audience, this still had nil impact.

 

  • 2015 Sylinski continued to research and connect with local rainbow social groups and came across, Heaven Social Dance where he met and the late Ian Stumbles and Beverley Buttercup. He was given the opportunity to perform occasionally on Pop up Drag stage where he met PortiaTurbo whom was often hosting the shows. Sylinski found himself becoming friends with the beautiful Queens and one, night Sylinski met the fabulous: Felicity Frockaccino, who invited Sylinski to showcase himself in Style on stage as a charity event at the Imperial Hotel (an iconic gay venue & an icon for Priscilla Queen of the Desert in Surrey Hills, (Sydney, Australia).
