Dragapalooza: Pop Divas

Media Title

Nowadays, there are few unequivocal truths for a gay man, and one of them—for better or worse—is that drag and pop songstresses are part of the culture. It goes back to the pre-Stonewall days, when Judy Garland was our everything, then up through the “Paris Is Burning” era, pointing to the inspiring courage with which men dressed as women braved scrutiny and sometimes violence. While fresh-faced baby gays scream about Betty Who, Little Mix, Wynter Gordon or Kat Graham, the millions of men who came of age in the ‘70s and ‘80s looked to Diana Ross, Cher, Whitney, Tina Turner and Bette Midler to give them life. There’s room for all of them! We just love a fierce, strong woman, especially when they acknowledge and welcome their obvious—and voracious—gay following.

With production from Bruce Yelk and Carl Michaels, plus Brittany Lynn as a host, there’s going to be some seriousness to Dragapalooza’s night of diva worship—but not too much. Purported divas to be homaged are Gaga, Brit, Miley, JLo, Madge, P!nk and Janet, plus a few of the old staples previously mentioned. They’ll be impersonated by some of the city’s premiere drag talent, including Aeryanah Von Moi, Maria Top Cat, Omyra Lynn and last season’s (local) Drag Race winner, Zsa Zsa St. James. Just be sure to have some cash on hand to tip your bartenders and favorite queens. // BILL CHENEVERT
