The time has come; RuPual’s DragCon 2018 is around the corner and with it some big changes.  The third annual convention all about drag has moved to the south hall of the Los Angeles Convention Center, May 11th, 12th, and 13th, which means it will boast a larger space. In true RuPaul Branding realness the convention, now in its third year, will also boast more events to its agenda. Among its center pieces, this year DragCon will serve its first Pageant, include over thirty insta-ready photo ops inside the werk-room, the judges panel complete with celebrity cutouts, and of course the infamous snatch game tables. Plus,  you will be able to meet and greet over 90 Celebrity Drag Queens, the most ever, wig officially snatched.  Merely it’s in infancy, debuting in 2015, the convention has become the highlight of the year for the queer and queer enthusiast of the wurrrl. So, if this is your first time attending or maybe this is your third time we want to help you navigate your day or whole weekend with need-to-know information about tickets, events, and who will be there all before you head out to Hollywood. Don’t worry kitty girl if you can’t make the gig this spring, wait for the Fall RuPual’s DragCon New York will be this September, tickets available May 14th.

Remember, Rupaul’s DragCon is a Safe Zoom for every Queer and those who love queer things and queer people. So be nice, love one another and PLEASE don’t be a “Dirty Sanchez”.
