Drag March for Change

Last year, a coalition of local drag performers and LGBTQ activists led a march in support of Black Lives Matter through the heart of the same neighborhood. The march was largely a reaction to worldwide protest actions started by the death of George Floyd at the hands of the police in Minneapolis. Speakers at the rally included LGBTQ activists Zahara Bassett and Jay Rice, of The Brave Space Alliance; activist Jasmine Salas; LGBTQ-rights activist Tatyana; and local drag performers Lucy Stoole, Luc Ami, Shea Coulee, Zola, Dida Ritz, The Vixen and Miss Toto-and many of those same individuals are expected back this year. Performer Jo MaMa created, produced and emceed the event, and returns in those roles. More information about the event is on Facebook under "The Drag March For Change 2021."
