Stars of Ru Paul’s Drag Race & Queer Eye are featured in the season's hottest ticket! The virtual variety show takes place on February 14. Gun Violence Is Still A Drag, will feature Thorgy Thor and Denali of Ru Paul’s Drag Race and Jai Rodriguez of the original Queer Eye series, and invites viewers to grab brunch, jump in front of a screen, and enjoy a hilarious compilation of “love” songs performed by their favorite faces.
The show raise funds for LGBTQ youth scholarships — Performers from across the country are joining forces with The Dru Project, an organization founded in the wake of the tragic 2016 shooting at Pulse Nightclub, to make this event incredible.
Today we welcome Sara Grossman, The Dru Project Communications Director and Domenic Vermeulen the Physical Production Coordinator for A+E Studios to tell us the T on this huge event!
The Dru Project was founded in 2016 in honor of Christopher “Drew” Leinonen, one of the 49 victims of the tragedy at Pulse Nightclub. A licensed mental health professional, Drew was passionate about creating spaces for queer youth to live authentically - work that The Dru Project has placed at the core of its mission. To date, the organization has authored the country’s most comprehensive classroom guide for Gay Straight Alliance student groups, reached over 400,000 people worldwide to advocate for queer youth, and awarded over $75,000 in college scholarships to LGBTQ leaders.
