    Pickle Drag Laureate Installation Ceremony to Take Place on International Drag Day

    - Advertisement -

    Pickle will be officially installed at a public Drag Laureate installation ceremony on International Drag Day, Sunday, July 16, 2023 at 3 p.m. at West Hollywood Park, located at 647 N. San Vicente Boulevard. The event is free and open to the public; no RSVP is required.

    The event will feature live music, light refreshments, and a sash presentation for Pickle the Drag Laureate. Pickle will be available for a meet and greet and photos after the presentation.

    “West Hollywood has been one of the centers of drag culture for decades,” said City of West Hollywood Councilmember Lauren Meister. “Drag performers are often a thrilling attraction at many of our restaurants and bars and West Hollywood’s drag performers take center stage in a wide range of our City’s arts and culture events. This year, we’ve witnessed conservative attacks on drag performers by those who seek to ban culture and expression. Plain and simple, this is a proxy for homophobia and such ‘drag bans’ attack LGBTQ people. I’m thrilled that West Hollywood’s Drag Laureate program will raise awareness about drag culture and I’m overjoyed to welcome Pickle as our inaugural Drag Laureate.”

    Pickle is a powerhouse host, performer, and community activist. She is a singing drag queen and comedienne who values education, community, and humor. She has been performing in drag professionally for eight years and has collaborated with many people and organizations to bring drag into people’s lives. Pickle is dedicated to expanding drag as a medium both for herself and for the community. For more information about Pickle, visit www.pickledragqueen.com.

    I’m completely in support of this drag laureate as are most residents of West Hollywood. We love being represented this way and glad Pickle is the chosen winner!

    I’m completely against this drag laureate farce–as are most residents of West Hollywood. We do not want to be represented in this way, and are offended by the use of taxpayer money.

    Enough!
