Judges for UK Season 4 FINALLY Revealed


Hold onto your lashes and wigs because Drag Race UK is FINALLY making a return to our screens.


Season 4 of the hit series is set to feature an array of fabulous judges.


Our fave Spice Girl, Mel B, is FINALLY making her debut on the drag race franchise.


Alongside her we have British comedy royalty Dame Joanna Lumley from the legendary series ‘Absolutely Fabulous.’



I’m also BEYOND excited to see Ted Lasso and Game of Thrones star Hannah Waddingham, and British media personality Alison Hammond.


Other amazing names on the guest judge list include Olly Alexander, Boy George and FKA Twigs just to name a few.



RuPaul has yet to give us a date when the show will make its return, but I suspect it’ll be end of September once Drag Race Down Under has crowned their winner (fingers crossed for Kween Kong).


 

Australia's Only Fortnightly National Indigenous Newspaper Can FINALLY Operate Again


The Koori Mail is a 100% Aboriginal-owned newspaper proudly based on the Widjabul Wiabul lands of the Bundjalung nation in Lismore.


For 30 years the independent media outlet has been sharing the voices of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.


Earlier this year The Koori Mail's office spaces were devastatingly affected by the northern NSW floods.


Because of the water damage, for the first time in three decades the beloved paper had to close its doors and stop operating.



But thanks to the generosity of community members and philanthropic groups, the self-funded paper can finally operate again.


"We had to do everything we could to ensure the Koori Mail staff had adequate office space to continue full operations and for the Koori Mail to continue being the voice for our mob around the nation," says Koori Mail General Manager Naomi Moran, "it was important also that this support aligned with the Koori Mail’s foundations as a 100% Aboriginal owned and run organisation."
