Iconic Moments & Total Earnings From 'Drag Isn't Dangerous' Telethon
The Drag Isn’t Dangerous telethon was a historic moment for drag culture.
Between RuPaul’s Drag Race legends and A-list Hollywood stars, the Drag Isn’t Dangerous telethon raised a lot of money that will be donated to important organizations fighting the good fight and supporting the LGBTQ+ community at this time.
With cohosts Peppermint, Alaska, Adam Shankman, and Justin Martindale, Drag Isn’t Dangerous raised $523,000 at the end of the official livestream. The event aired for more than four hours, featuring musical performances, guest interviews, comedy skits, and so much more.
As of this writing, the GoFundMe page for Drag Isn’t Dangerous is showing a total of $536,087, which means that earnings have gone up in the hours that followed the telethon.
Fans can rewatch the entire Drag Isn’t Dangerous telethon via Moment. Otherwise, YouTube channels from queens like Bob the Drag Queen, Trixie Mattel, and Alaska also livestreamed the event (but without musical performances).
The digital event featured special guest appearances from celebrities like Elizabeth Banks, Charlize Theron, Orville Peck, Margaret Cho, Jesse Eisenberg, Ada Vox, Billy Eichner, Michelle Visage, Leland, Leslie Jones, Ts Madison, Sarah Silverman, Johnny Sibilly, Vincint, Adam Lambert, and Marcia Gay Harden, to name a few.
Both pre-taped and live musical performances also took place during the telethon. Drag Race stars like Trixie Mattel, Bob the Drag Queen, Monét X Change, Jinkx Monsoon, and Ginger Minj were among the live singers, as well as Vincint, Peaches, and Idina Menzel.
The LGBTQ+ is stronger when it comes together, and now is the time to unite.
