Fight to Legalize Drag
Tennessee has passed a dangerous restriction on free speech and the artistic expression of drag, and we MUST FIGHT BACK! Legalize Drag is a collective of drag artist legal professionals protesting attacks on the art of drag and trans, gender non-confirming, and queer communities. Our goals are to raise awareness, bring together queer folks, and provide a clear pathway to donate to this cause. We are raising money for the grassroots organizations inclusion tennessee, Tennessee Equality Project, and Protect Trans Health TN.
Our fundraiser will be held on Saturday April 29, 2023 from 2:30pm – 5:30pm at OASIS (298 Eleventh St, San Francisco, CA 94103). The event will feature drag performances by LGBTQI+ legal professionals. Any performer payment will come from the organizers, not from the funds raised, so every dollar raised will go directly to supporting queer organizers in Tennessee. If other states pass drag bans in the meantime, or if Tennessee orgs express that they are already well-funded, then funds raised will go to grassroots organizers in other states with anti-drag and/or anti-trans legislation.
