RuPaul DragCon 2017: World’s Largest Celebration of Drag Art and Culture

Over 40,000 attendees attended the 3rd Annual RuPaul’s DragCon in Los Angeles over the weekend.

The convention, the largest celebration of drag art and culture in the world, tripled its total attendance since its debut in 2015.

Spearheaded by RuPaul and World of Wonder (the production company behind “RuPaul’s Drag Race”), the convention took on a political stance this year.

“At RuPaul’s DragCon, we celebrate all the colors of the rainbow,” declared RuPaul, who recently won the Emmy for Outstanding Host for a Reality or Reality-Competition Program. “We have an orange president that wraps himself in red, white and blue.  How are you going to make America great again if you can’t love all the colors of the rainbow?”

 

“The expressions of love, family and imagination that flooded the LA Convention Center this past weekend made RuPaul’s DragCon the happiest and most fabulous place on earth,” says Randy Barbato, World of Wonder.
