One of our favorite Quibi shows, when the streaming platform debuted, was hands-down Nightgowns with Sasha Velour. The only downside was having to watch it in Quibi’s signature 10-minutes-or-less doses.
We wanted more. So much more.
Well, this Sunday, the boundary-pushing drag performer presents a very special streaming extravaganza called Nightgowns Forever. Featuring more than 30 drag performers (full list at end of story and in the trailer below), the show will present 30 different performances with never-before-seen footage in celebration of the avant-garde production’s fifth anniversary—all to raise money for black trans people.
The virtual venue will be announced on her website and social media channels, so keep an eye out for the exact online location. Watching the event itself won’t cost you a thing, but you’re encouraged to donate money to help support black trans lives at a time when they’re increasingly vulnerable.
But most of all, it promises to be one of the most fabulous things you’ve streamed the entire pandemic.
