Thank you to everyone who voted us Best Drag Show in the 2018 Washington Blade’s Best of Gay DC! Pretty Boi Drag has been nominated in this category since our inception and we are so grateful to our amazing fans who made this happen! We can’t wait to bring you even more drag king experiences in the coming year!
Co-producer Pretty Rik E was featured on NPR’s 1A with Joshua Johnson for their “Ask a Drag Queen” segment. The segment also featured drag queens, Lena Lett, Brigette Bidet, and Bianca Del Rio. On the show, Rik E got the opportunity to talk about Pretty Boi Drag, drag kinging as an art from, and answer questions from listeners.
Elevating the art of kinging and making more audiences aware of what we do is something that is very important to Pretty Boi Drag. We were so excited to have this platform to reach so many people who may have never heard of a drag king. Joshua is a great host and the segment was a lot of fun!
This year Pretty Boi Drag teamed up with Lee Perrine (from Makers Lab) and the Mayor’s Office of LGBTQ Affairs to create the first annual District of Pride, a celebration of queer artistry in our city!
Held at the Lincoln Theater, District of Pride featured a variety of performances, from drag to drumming and a whole lot more. Well known local artists such as The CooLots and BoomScat were featured, as well as many other performers throughout the city.
This event was free to attend and saw an audience of upwards of 800 people! We are so proud to have brought such an amazing show to our city and really highlight all the amazing queer talent we have here!
