Reporting from RuPaul’s DragCon 2015: The First Drag Convention in HERStory
May 16-17 in downtown Los Angeles at the Convention Center, thousands (nearly 14,000!) of Con Goers converged. But this was a first! The first Convention devoted to the art of DRAG!
The convention floor was FILLED with vendors and talent booths! Lines for meeting RuPaul’s Drag Race stars from past seasons and the current season wrapped around the convention hall, there were panels that ran the gamut of risqué to downright enlightening!
My only regret is that I was only able to attend the second day and that I couldn’t clone myself to be absolutely everywhere I wanted to be! I couldn’t get in to interview any of the stars and my camera malfunctioned halfway through the day (drat!) but I didn’t leave empty SD carded!
The absolutely fantastic news is, THERE’S GOING TO BE ANOTHER DRAGCON NEXT YEAR!! HOOOORAY! The dates have been announced May 7-8 of 2016!!! I’m so excited!
Here is a glimpse into the first ever, RuPaul’s DragCon! Enjoy!!
