If you're looking to unleash your inner drag king, but not sure how..... you can learn the tricks of the trade from a real pro tomorrow night, at the @ The Video Underground in JP.


The workshop is taught by Heywood Wakefield, who will show aspiring gender-benders how to dress, walk, and talk like dudes. The class costs $15, and you have to register in advance.

If you want to showcase your new-found drag performing skills on stage, you can also sign up to compete in “Wreckage: The Contest Show” at the Milky Way on Dec. 9th. (btw, this talent competition is open to anyone, not just drag folks) You can show off your singing and dancing skills, spoken word, stand-up comedy, hula hoop, acrobatics, burlesque, whatever…and possibly win $200. The deadline to sign up is Friday, Nov. 30th.
