This is an annual charity event where members of our community who have never done drag or don't do it professionally, perform in a fun and artistic way (drag queen or drag king) to raise money for charity bringing the entire community and businesses within the city of Long Beach together. Last
year, we had over 400 people, including the mayor of Long Beach, members of the city councils and
a representative of senator Ricardo Lara. Our beneficiaries are The LGBTQ Center of LB,
Beacon for Him and The WomenShelter of LB and LBIRC.
