The event is a chance to join friends and family in celebrating a drag icon and philanthropist.

    “Dress in whatever makes you happy from Drag to Disney,” reads a flier. “In lieu of sending flowers, please consider sending a donation in Worthie’s name to PROJECT ANGEL FOOD

    News broke that Worthie Paul Meacham, known as everyone’s favorite larger than life drag diva, MOMMA died on October 9, according to a family member. Momma was widely known and loved in the West Hollywood community for her hosting of shows in West Hollywood’s LGBT Rainbow District and for participating in numerous fundraisers benefiting various LGBT causes. According to a profile written by Billy Masters in the Los Angeles Blade, Momma was born in 1994 during a drag competition at Drag Strip 66.

    Meacham was wheelchair bound when he attended the memorial services of “Fairy Godmother of Fundraising,” Irene Soderberg last April at Hollywood Forever Cemetery.
