It’s Time for Divas to Take Back America
July 16th | 4:30-8:00 PM | All Ages | Centilia Cultural Center on Beacon Hill
Back in 2011, our first Divas Take The Hill party launched at Retail Therapy. It was a way to give back to our community as part of the Seattle Pride events. Every year the event kept growing. All counted up we have raised over $60,000 to support LGBTQ films, homeless youth on Capitol Hill, and Marriage Equality over the years.
Divaland’s sense of community and activism is needed now more than ever with the current administration on the national level and our own Republican obstructionist legislators here in Washington State. Our country is in dire straits under an administration that is becoming more erratic, cruel, and sinister by the day. It can be overwhelming, but Divaland is here to take it to the streets, raise money, and support organizations who are here to win the fight.
Every Revolution Needs a Drag Carnival
There is nothing more terrifying to the patriarchy than a Diva. Not to mention a man in a wig. To quote our spirit Diva Beyonce “Diva is Just a Female Version of a Hustler”. To Trump’s America – we are here to hustle and take over. And we are taking over Diva style which includes community, drag, performance artists, and a carnival of activism. Oh, and did we mention a photo booth? Cause the revolution will be Instagrammed.
It’s time to drink to democracy, party for parity, commune for common sense, and celebrate the diversity that MADE America great.
And since the circus in D.C. is being headlined by a clown, we’re going with the draggiest carnival theme ever. Because Divaland > The Donald.
