The Music City Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence presents

H8’s A DRAG 2013

The Music City Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence is proud to announce the return of H8’s A DRAG! Now in its second year, H8’s A DRAG 2013 will bring two brand new events to the season. One – a youth dance called STOMP H8, will cater directly to the 14 – 18 year olds we serve. The other event — the H8’s A DRAG Local Revue — will comprise two evenings in a RuPaul’s Drag Race Style competition with a top performer chosen to perform on the H8’s A DRAG 2013 stage. We are excited by the enthusiastic response as anticipation builds each day! This year our sponsorship has tripled, allowing this important benefit to grow and reach even more individuals and groups we serve. Proceeds from all H8’s A DRAG 2013 events benefit the Music City Sisters’ LGBTQ Youth Grant Fund and anti-bullying campaign established in 2012.

There are several ways to participate in H8’s A DRAG 2013. Jump in and take a look!
