Drag Queens Protest at the Border Wall

Drag queens protest at border Wall

Drag queens brought a show with them to the border wall in Brownsville, Texas.

The queens hosted a “No Border Wall” drag protest to raise money for the LGBTQ refugees coming to the United States and to bring awareness to the planned wall construction.

“We’ll try to bring joy, positivity, beauty, drag, culture to whatever this is,” drag queen and host of the event Beatrix Lestrange told NBC News.

$1.375 billion is allocated to border construction in the Texas’ Rio Grande Valley according to a recent bill passed by Congress. Construction is set to begin soon.

“They’re [LGBTQ refugees] fleeing homophobia, transphobia, violence, trauma, only to come to the doorsteps of our country and encounter more of that,” Drag queen Michelangelo De Vinci told NBC News.

The drag queens hope that opposition to the wall and this protest will be a stepping stone towards a positive change. All money raised by the protest will go to LGBTQ refugees.
