On September 17th, I was fortunate to be invited as a guest of Coup D’Etat to attend the amazing Divas of Drag Event, held at the San Francisco Design Center.
Divas of Drag hosted its 3rd Annual “High Glamour, high- camp” Gala which featured creative and colorful drag performances by more than a dozen local Queens. The Queens were seen wearing colorful and creative designs, which were created by a multitude of designers from the San Francisco Design Center. These designs gave the audience an opportunity to see the beautiful textiles represented at the Design Center.
The event was in place to not only showcase the talent housed at the design center, rather the ultimate goal of the night was to raise money and donate the proceeds to Lava Mae, a company that provides mobile showers for the homeless. Lava Mae’s mission is to provide care through the mobile hygiene services, pop-up care villages, and BuildIt toolkit to bring critical services to the streets delivered with radical hospitality in order to restore dignity, rekindle optimism, and fuel a sense of opportunity for those in need.
Overall, the event was a rousing success. I so greatly enjoyed the Show, and I feel so blessed to be included in this event by the Coup D’Etat family.
