The Affirmations LGBTQ center will host royalty on Saturday, July 13, in a youth-focused “gender-bending” drag event. Lasting from noon to 6 p.m., in collaboration with Slay Inc. — a Detroit-based LGBTQ events company — attendees will be helped into drag as they learn more about the art form.
“Join us on Saturday, July 13 for half a day of drag, food and fun! LGBTQ+ Youth, ages 13- 18 and their family’s are welcome to join us free of charge as we explore gender and drag with local performers,” wrote event organizers. “Each child will have professional makeup and hair stylists to help put some fabulous looks together. The event concludes with a high-energy runway show where our newest kings and queens can strut their stuff.”
This event is sponsored by ROUGE MakeUp and Nail Studio, Randolph’s Salon and Mike and Judy Taylor.
With only 20 slots available, interested participants are encouraged to sign up soon at weslayinc.com or by calling Kyle Taylor at 248-398-7105 ext. 224. Affirmations is located at 290 W. 9 Mile Road in Ferndale. For more information about the event visit the Affirmations Facebook page.
