This weekend's Drag Angeles event is taking the City of Angels by storm. In three separate exhibits and a variety of events, we see a historical look at the Los Angeles and West Hollywood drag scene from the late 1800s to today. The celebration's opening reception in Hollywood includes guest performances curated by DJ Ambrosia Salad, portraits by award-winning photographer Austin Young, and the taking of a historic group photo of drag artists.
This exhibit is a collaboration between the City of West Hollywood through WeHo Arts, Los Angeles LGBT Center’s Advocate & Gochis Galleries, and CAP UCLA, with assistance from the ONE National Gay & Lesbian Archives. Curated by Katie Poltz (Los Angeles LGBT Center), with art direction by David John Attyah (Glendale Community College), and poster design by Cat Kostreba and research assistance by Jessica-Jean Fowler.
On view, free, through June as part of One City One Pride, www.weho.org/pride. RSVP requested for participation in photo, http://draginla.eventbrite.com, RSVP requested for reception attendance: http://dragangeles.eventbrite.com
