Pretty Boi Drag Featured in WaPo Express Weekend Pass

Pretty Boi Drag is featured in the Washington Post Express days before celebrating our 3rd Anniversary at The Bier Baron Tavern.

The article features an interview with Pretty Boi Drag Producers, Lexie Starre and Pretty Rik E.

“We’re not just going up onstage and lip-syncing — we’re giving audiences more than what they expected when they came through the door,” Pretty Rik E says. “That will eventually help us carve out our own mainstream space in this world, where people [now] associate drag with just drag queens.”

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!
