MOBILE DRAG PERFORMANCE UNIT, PRESENTED BY FAGSIGNS
The Mobile Drag Performance Unit is a series of pop-up curbside drag shows that celebrate the art of drag while creating enlivenment through community engagement and performance. Bringing something usually relegated to the interior of a bar or restricted by age requirements, this mobile unit aims at creating accessibility by turning the interior inside out, transplanting, accessorizing, glamming with neon, all set on wheels, a rolling stage of fun.
Drag is an art form that actualizes transformation in society. They are the paratroopers of the LGBTQ+ community, as frontline fighters for social equality, all while inspiring and bringing a smile to your face. At the height of the AIDS crisis, they provided hope and refuge to a community ravaged by a plague. It is captivating to see a new generation of performers step up, lift our spirits, and help us get through another dark time: the catastrophe that is COVID-19.
