World Premiere

After our Advance Screening of the much anticipated second season of the Emmy-nominated and GLAAD Award-winning unscripted series, we hosted an exclusive panel with the cast and creators.

In Episode 2 (“Selma”) and Episode 3 (“Del Rio”), famous former RUPAUL’S DRAG RACE contestants Bob the Drag Queen, Eureka O’Hara, and Shangela Laquifa Wadley recruit and train small-town residents to participate in a one-night-only drag performance. The queens and residents end up inspiring each other to step outside their comfort zones as they share their stories, proving the importance of community and connection even in small-town America.
