Description

Join The "B" Room, Councilwoman Jeannine Pearce and the Long Beach community as we come together once again for an out of this world evening of fun and giving! It's a Drag to Give is a charitable event featuring drag performances by outstanding Long Beach community members who you wouldn't normally find, well, in drag.

This year we are proud to have performances from the LB Mayor’s office, Senior Administrative Deputy Tim Patton, The "B" Room's Isa Rached, Cory Allen from Councilwoman Gonzalez's office, Gio Ferraro from Groundwork fitness, Deb Kahookele and Stuart Takehara from PARA residents association, Jannay Lima from Queer Mafia and more. Our DJ will be the always happening DJ Notorious Jen. JEWELS and Ron Sylvester will be the event’s host and MC’s for the evening with a special appearance from the hilarious standup comedian Narcizo Gonzalez!!!

It's a Drag To Give will kickoff at 7 PM for cocktails, music, and mingling followed by an evening of not-to-be-missed performances starting at 8 PM and ended with an after party till 2 am.

Like always, ours is a free event as long as you bring with you an unwrapped toy and/or a gently used or new coat, if not is $20 at the door.

Donations and funds raised this year will benefit the LGBTQ Center of Long Beach, Beacon for Him, WomenShelter of Long Beach and The LB Immigrant rights coalition. And don't forget your dollar bills for tipping our performers! Proceeds go directly to our charities.


Special note: It's a Drag to Give is committed to providing a safe space for all people, regardless of race, ethnicity, background, heritage, religion, abilities, gender identity, and sexual orientation; the only identifying characteristic that will not be tolerated at It's a Drag to Give will be hatefulness.

Additional sponsorship support is being provided by the Long Beach Convention Center, Hamburger Mary’s, DLBA, DMK skincare, Groundwork Fitness, iZone Marketing, Chulo Chonies, ApartmentSEO, Stereo, Pie Bar, Debra Kahookele.
