HISTORIC GROUP PHOTO OF DRAG ARTISTS IN LOS ANGELES: We invite all drag artists of today and yesterday to come to the West Hollywood Library for a historic group photo. Special gifts will be presented to all participating drag artists. We invite LA-based drag performers and drag enthusiasts to join us, in drag, at 7 p.m. sharp for the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be a part of the biggest, most fabulous photo ever of people in drag in Los Angeles. The resulting photo, to be taken by famed photographer Austin Young, will hang in the West Hollywood Library for the run of A Brief History of Drag in LA. All participants will receive two complimentary tickets to Taylor Mac’s 24-Decade History of Popular Music: The 20th Century Abridged on March 12 at Royce Hall (see below), plus a special goodie bag and a copy of the group photo by Austin Young. RSVP today to guarantee your spot in this historic photo.
A BRIEF HISTORY OF DRAG EXHIBITION:
This exhibit at the WeHo Arts library exhibition spaces is an overview of the history of drag in Los
Angeles County, and describes the importance of ‘drag queens’ and others in the early LGBTQ rights
movement. The exhibit consists of photographs drawn from both the ONE Archives and taken by
photographer Austin Young. Curated by Katie Poltz and Jessica Fowler of the LA LGBT Center and
David Attyah of Glendale Community College, the exhibition is a result of collaboration between the
City of West Hollywood, LA LGBT Center, and Center for the Art of Performance at UCLA.
