This weekend marks the start of Pride Month, and in Philly there’s tons of ways to celebrate the LGBTQ+ community, including the annual Pride March and Festival this Sunday. There are countless ways to express love of life and liberation, and a particularly fun one is through the fabulous art of drag.

There’s a vibrant drag scene in our area all year round. Kings, queens and all royalty in between bring their passion to the stage to not only honor themselves and their identities, but to spark creativity in all of us – whatever that means for you! In the words of RuPaul, “If you can’t love yourself, how in the hell are you gonna love somebody else?!”

Below are five drag shows you can check out this weekend in and around Philadelphia. There’s a ton more drag where this came from: at bars, brunches and family-friendly events like story hours and parades. Be sure to follow your favorite performers on social media to keep your life glamorous.
