It's no surprise to us that the current golden age of drag starts right in NYC. RuPaul's Drag Race icons like Sasha Velour and Bob the Drag Queen hang their hats in the city, and the influential Bushwig festival has gone from Bushwick to cities like Berlin, London and Mexico City. We've got everything for you here, from DIY backroom gay bar drag to VIP stage shows. Come through!
