Thank you to all who came to the Drag Show last night! We had such an amazing time planning this and seeing all the performers do so well! We appreciate each and every one of the fabulous performers that helped make this show what it is. Also HUGE shoutout to our volunteers, as well as @neumann_crew_tech for this would not be possible without them. Can’t wait for next years Drag Show!
