Never count a drag queen down.

With all of California under lockdown–like most of the country–the Producer Entertainment Group has announced a partnership with the webcasting site Stageit to bring some of drag’s biggest name to the web for a digital drag festival.

Alaska Thunderf*ck, Divina De Campo, Ginger Minj, Jackie Beat, Jiggly Caliente, Jinkx Monsoon, Jujubee, Manila Luzon, Miz Cracker, Monét X Change, Nina West, PeppermintSharon Needles, Sherry Vine, and Trinity The Tuck will all take part in a series of weeklong drag concerts aimed to keep people entertained during the coronavirus pandemic. Each queen will present a 30-minute, one time only concert with performances ranging from lipsyncing to comedy to cooking to dance. Viewers will even have the opportunity to tip their favorite performers.

“Drag is about resilience, and this festival is meant to share that message during a  challenging time in our world,” said David Charpentier, Founder of PEG.”We want to give fans an opportunity to continue supporting their favorite queens and provide a welcome distraction for drag lovers around the globe,” he said in a statement.
Jinx Monson echoed Charpentier’s sentiment, albeit more succinctly: “Art endures all disasters; with art, so can we.”
Tickets for the Digital Drag Fest 2020, which is described as “all ages” entertainment, begin at $10. The concert kicks off Friday, March 27.
