OUTLOUD is producing Pride @ Bev on Saturday, May 20, 2023, from 12pm – 4pm, at the Grand Court, Level 6, inside the Beverly Center located near the West Hollywood city limits (8500 Beverly Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90048). Pride @ Bev will be an afternoon of drag performances and a spirited panel discussion led by RuPaul’s Drag Race winner Sasha Colby and Friends from the Emmy Award winning drag competition show.
Fresh off her season 15 win, trans activist and Miss Continental title holder Sasha Colby joins OUTLOUD Presents PRIDE @ BEV for a panel discussion along with special performances from a roster of celebrity drag queens, including Salina EsTitties and Naysha Lopez. The Art of Drag panel will feature Sasha, Salina, and Naysha and will be moderated by Ryan Mitchell with Instagram Live and red carpet host Brendan W. Jordan.
Panel speakers will spill the tea on what it takes to be a drag performer and get an inside look into the world of drag. Attendees will get the opportunity to participate in a variety of fun activations including a Glam Station by Sephora, FIDM Fashion Illustrations, and a MCM Photobooth. Guests will also have the opportunity to lip sync for their life for the only OUTLOUD VIP giveaway this year and will get the chance to win big on the Beverly Center Spin Wheel. Complimentary cotton candy and popcorn will be available on Level 7.
