  • Drag is not a crime: Performers, fans flock to RuPaul's DragCon
    One of the world's largest drag conventions, RuPaul's DragCon, is taking place this weekend, drawing performers and fans from all over. Despite efforts to criminalize drag and portray drag queens as monsters, the community is fighting back and asserting that drag is not a threat, but a celebration of life.
    RuPaul's DragCon kicked off on Friday at the Los Angeles Convention Center, with hundreds of drag queens strutting their stuff. While the mood may be somber in other parts of the country, Los Angeles is embracing the art of drag with extravagant costumes, mesmerizing performances, and much more. The convention provides fans with the opportunity to meet their favorite drag queens from the popular competition show RuPaul's Drag Race.
    Many believe that drag is unfairly targeted and labeled as dangerous. However, those who understand the essence of drag view it as a source of joy, love, and laughter. Drag is a vibrant expression of oneself, filled with lights, colors, and the symbolism of the rainbow. To truly appreciate the beauty and magnificence of drag, one must experience DragCon firsthand.
    The atmosphere at DragCon is described as fabulous and beautiful, as participants are exposed to an incredible display of talent, beauty, and artistry. It is a mind-blowing experience to witness the multitude of drag performers beyond what is shown on television. This convention serves as a reminder that drag is not limited to a select few, but rather an inclusive and diverse artistic form that exists everywhere.
    Attending DragCon allows people to recognize the ubiquity and importance of drag. It encourages the acceptance and celebration of drag as an integral part of society. Despite exhaustion and sore feet from the overwhelming excitement, participants agree that the experience is worthwhile and contributes to raising awareness about the presence and significance of drag in daily life. Drag should not be criminalized but, on the contrary, embraced and cherished as an expression of individuality and creativity.
