Put Some Gay In Your Day, Dallas!

It’s The Right-Wing Nut Jobs Who Are Dangerous

We’re under attack.

And not in a fun way like our recurring dream of Pedro Pascal breaking into our bedroom and spanking us until we fall into a pile of naked giggles.

How foolish some of us were to think the evil of the Trump era would disappear when the small-pricked gasbag slithered out of the Oval Office. Instead, there’s a new pandemic of prudishness sparked by ill-informed, bigoted bumpkins in the Republican party (mostly, there are some idiot Democrats, too).

If you need hard facts, look no further than the American Civil Liberties Union’s report on anti-LGBTQ bills around the United States. According to the ACLU, as of May 2 there are 471 different bills targeting LGBTQ rights.

Drag Isn’t Dangerous, the groundbreaking telethon announced several weeks ago, will finally happen this Sunday night and it’s going to be epic, no matter how overused that adjective may be.

Dozens of top entertainers will perform in live and taped segments throughout the show, all while raising money for LGBTQ causes and organizations ready to fight the continued discrimination against drag performers, trans people and queer folk in general.

Superstar drag queens Jinkx Monsoon, Bob the Drag Queen, Trixie Mattel, Eureka O’Hara, Trinity the Tuck, MonĂ©t X Change, Ginger Minj, BeBe Zahara Benet will be joined by Hollywood A-listers, too, from Charlize Theron, Sarah Silverman and Margaret Cho to Marcia Gay Harden, Amy Schumer and Leslie Jones.

Access to the event is only $20 ($25.67 with taxes and fees). You can watch the show live and up to 48 hours after, so it’s a great deal for an even better cause.

You can also make a donation and show your support by purchasing and wearing Drag Isn’t Dangerous merch, ranging from T-shirts to tote bags.

It promises to be a night of unity in the national queer community and, of course, fun and irreverent in ways only drag queens can be in situations such as these.

Join us, won’t you?
