PUTTING IN WERQ AT DRAGCON!

Sashay into any big convention and you can expect a huge room with tons of people, crazy booth displays and lines- bathroom lines, booze lines and at DragCon, makeup lines. After a 2-year hiatus, DragCon returned to the LA Convention center last weekend, and with it came 150 of the world’s most famous queens and 50,000 crazed fanatics who lost. their. shit. when RuPaul herself DJ’d the event. 

 

I’ve always seen comparisons between drag and non-trad skateboarding. Both are special and unique communities that I’ve connected to, but beyond that, here’s some specifics. –Migz

WAYS DRAG IS LIKE NON-TRAD SKATEBOARDING

  • Non-stop quality entertainment. 

  • Shoe obsession.

  • History of trauma.

  • Low brow comedy.

  • Impressive athleticism. 

  • Creatively gifted. 

  • Some find us triggering.

  • Relatively new mainstream acceptance. 

“The return of DragCon LA exceeded my wildest expectations. To our dazzling queens, our amazing vendors, and each and every one of our beautiful attendees, thank you for 3 dragalicious days of love, light and laughter. It takes a village, people! The celebration continues later this week as RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars 7 makes its global debut on Friday, May 20.”
