Already in its fourth year, RuPaul’s DragCon took over Downtown Los Angeles this past weekend and celebrated all things queer! The annual, three-day convention brought over 50,000+ people together to embrace their courage, uniqueness, nerve, and talent, and the entire event and was proof that no matter who you are, you belong!
Before entering, attendees were reminded that just because a queen is in drag doesn't mean you can touch them or take their pictures without permission. In past years, folks have made comments about how handsy others became during the event, so this was a great thing to see.
A great reminder: drag DOES NOT EQUAL consent.
As the day came to a close, it was exciting to see so much love and community built up in Dowtown Los Angeles! I am over the moon that I got to attend this year, and I would encourage everyone (especially Drag Race superfans) to do so next year if they have the chance to go.
Until next year, Rupaul’s DragCon!
