Designed for LGBTQ+ youth and their allies, this class will examine the history and cultural significance of Drag Performance while learning how to create a drag persona, complete with different looks and personalities. Taught by local Drag Queen, Isis, and Drag King, Dan D'Lite, this class will have you looking good and feeling great to love the skin you're in!
