Grab your feather boas and fishnets - drag is coming to Macarthur.

Campbelltown RSL Club will host a special bushfire fundraiser called Drag It Up, with all money raised at the event going to the NSW Rural Fire Service.

Elderslie drag queen Lotta Glitta decided to hold the event because she wanted to do something to help the people putting their lives on the line to protect others.

"I wasn't in a financial situation to donate much, but I thought if I could put on a show and donate the money, that was at least something that would help out," she said.

"It's such a great cause.

"We've seen the work that the RFS has put in so this is a chance to celebrate them and have some fun."

The show, called Drag It Up, will be held on Saturday, February 22 from 6pm-11pm.

Glitta will be joined by fellow queens including Lucy Furr, Delilah Von-Tramp, Cherry Ripe and Coco Macabre.

She said the all-ages event would be a lot of fun for everyone.

"There will be singing, dancing, games and a raffle," Glitta said.

Various local businesses have donated prizes to be raffled, including Bing Lee, Inkd Tattoos, Macarthur Hair and Beauty Supplies and Hairhouse Warehouse.

Glitta said there were about 20 prizes to be won, so everyone would be in with a shot.

She is looking forward to bringing some drag glam to the Campbelltown stage.

"I've been doing drag for about a year," she said.

"It started when I was actually on the train headed to the Broken Heel drag festival, just as a fan, and all of a sudden I was talked into doing drag.

"It took me a little while to settle on Lotta Glitta, but everything I do I do with a bit of glitter, so it just made sense."

Glitta said her mother had been very helpful during the preparations for Drag It Up and wanted to thank her for all her hard work.

Tickets to Drag It Up are $5 and available at the door on the night.
