RuPaul’s Drag Race: Battle of the Seasons Tour at The Pageant – March 17th, 2015

No matter what your stance on men dressing in drag is, you can not deny the iconic status RuPaul has earned in pop culture.  RuPaul has built his career from the ground up starting out as a “drag queen” type performer, having countless national appearances in film and TV, and now even having his own reality TV show on LOGO TV!  It is evident RuPaul has been at the forefront of the movement that has brought drag performers to the attention of the general public and helped them gain the social acceptance for the art form in which they perform in live theatre settings across the country.  This evening was really fun to photograph.  A lot of costume changes happened and there was a lot of movement on stage, as well as some fun involvement with the crowd when every performer took stage.  The evening was hosted by Michelle Visage and included performances from Drag Race stars such as Adore Delano, Bianca Del Rio, Detox, Ivy Winters, Jinkx Monsoon, Alaska 5000, and Sharon Needles.  The crowd was very into it and included everything from groups of gay men to groups of single women who had been out drinking all day in celebration of St. Pat’s Day. I was happy to have the opportunity to cover this show and now can add my first ever drag show to my portfolio!
