    LA Sisters vs WeHo Cheerleaders at 7th Annual Drag Queen World Series

    The Annual Drag Queen World Series is BACK with the Los Angeles Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence battling it out with the West Hollywood Cheerleaders for a giant trophy, bragging rights, and a chance to raise money for a good cause. The Life Group LA is bringing a fun, wacky, playful, rule-bending softball game to Fairfax High School in Los Angeles on Saturday, April 27, 2024. Come join in a fun-filled, comedic game full of crazy antics and some eye candy.

    West Hollywood Mayor John M. Erickson will umpire; actor and singer Jay Rodriguez (best known as the culture guide in Queer Eye for the Straight Guy) will sing the National Anthem; music will be spun by Celebrity DJ Eur-O-Steve. The announcer this year will be TV/podcast personality Alexander Rodriguez. Cheer LA will perform during the 3rd inning stretch. More special guest announcements to come.

    The race to home plate is a collaboration between The Life Group, Fairfax High Alumni Association’s Centennial Celebration, and the High School’s GSA Youth Club. The Los Angeles Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence and the West Hollywood Cheerleaders are two amazing organizations of drag queens who donate their time and use their power and passions for the greater good.

    Admission funds and sponsorships will benefit the Life Group LA (www.TheLifeGroupLA.org), a coalition of people dedicated to the education, empowerment, and emotional support of persons both infected and affected by HIV/AIDS so that they may make informed choices and decisions regarding their healthcare and personal well-being. This year’s food truck time is being made available by Pink’s Hot Dogs to benefit Fairfax High School’s Alumni Centennial Celebrations. Sweet treats will be offered to benefit the school’s Student Club, the “Gender Sexuality Association” (GSA).

    he Drag Queen World Series raises awareness of the fact that AIDS is not over and aims to erase stigma. It is also an opportunity to raise financial support for The Life Group LA. The group’s main goal is to continue providing education and emotional support to persons infected and affected by HIV/AIDS.

    The Life Group LA, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, was founded in 2005 and provides free-of-charge, much-needed information and emotional support through medical forums, emotional support groups, and the POZ Life Weekend Seminar. All services are offered in a non-judgmental and safe environment with compassion and understanding. Safety, respect, and confidentiality are the cornerstones of Life Group LA’s philosophy. This is accomplished by providing trained support group facilitators for emotional support groups and POZ Life Weekend Seminars. These facilitators have been trained in the art of active listening and conduct themselves with empathy and compassion.

    In a time when the HIV epidemic has surpassed its 43rd year and new HIV infections continue to occur on a daily basis, now more than ever we must continue to provide education and emotional support for people living with HIV and spread information about PrEP to keep others safe from exposure.

    The Life Group LA’s 7th Annual Drag Queen World Series is scheduled for Saturday, April 27, 2024, from 1 to 4 p.m. (rain or shine) at Fairfax High School, 7850 Melrose Ave, Los Angeles (Enter the softball field on Genesee Blvd by the tennis courts).
