Description:

Typically held at bars and nightclubs, drag is a form of entertainment in which a performer uses clothing and makeup to impersonate a particular gender identity, usually of the opposite sex. Yet drag is so much more than nightclub entertainment — it provides community, instills self-confidence and can even save lives.

Discover the impact of this art form and how it can be used not only to raise awareness and advocate for LGBTQ+ acceptance but also as a powerful vehicle for individual self-expression.
