Welcome to Kita and Anita's HAPPY HOUR!

Kita and Anita's Happy Hour sees Drag Race Down Under stars and NZ nightlife legends Kita Mean and Anita Wigl'it reunite!

Kita's back, and this time she's joined by her drag aunty Buckwheat to discuss her 36 years in drag!

The local nightlife icon recalls going to clubs at 14 when being gay was illegal, the original Hero Parades and being lowered from the Town Hall ceiling at 5am, working Mardi Gras flights with Kathy Griffin, and swapping out the wigs and heels for somebody bronzer at a bodybuilding competition!
