The name may say Drag but RuPaul’s DragCon is a place for all parts of the LGBTQ community. This year’s DragCon truly showed, celebrated and opened the doors for every identity and interst within the LGBTQ community.
DragCon had visual artists of all mediums and styles, musical performers from varying genres and places and drag performers from across the globe! There is a bit of everything at DragCon!
This year there were performances by Blaqk Audio and Karen from Finance on the main stage. There were many fans so excited about their performances. Many felt that Blaqk Audio diversified the experience of DragCon, because so many artists are more pop, but Blaqk Audio is where techno meets punk music.

There were diverse artist who displayed and sold geeky art, such as Leia & Terry Huddleston, who are a married couple that create beautiful fan art from comic characters to Greek and astrological personas.
We wanted to bring the diversity of black art and comics converging to the convention scene, rather than just art and gallery shows.Leia Huddleston
Even the activities at DragCon were diverse from bilingual readings at Drag Queen Story hour to international drag queen performers. Pangina Heals, one of the host of Drag Race Thailand performed twice on the Tik Tok main stage. She served Marilyn Monroe realness for her first performance and fans were living for it!
Brazilian Drag Queen Penelope also dropped by the Tik Tok Main Stage for a sickening performance!
