If you follow our Instagram account @dragqueensgalore you’ll see a number of black drag queens being showcased this month in honor or Black History Month. It’s important to know, embrace, and cherish our history.
Our community must remain diligent in celebrating who we are as LGBTQ community members, whether we identify as LGBTQ or simply support the community. Every single one of us is to be celebrated and loved. We remain diligent in bringing to you the positive parts of the movement and remain steadfast in our commitment to bringing art to the world by sharing our love for drag.
We realize how many people tag us and send us requests to be featured on our Instagram account and on our website every single day. We can’t thank you enough for honoring us with this. You are amazing and we will definitely get as many of those requests fulfilled as soon as possible. However, it is very important to take some time to focus on Black History Month because so much of LGBTQ history is intertwined with Black History. This is the reason we started with RuPaul Charles. Who is THE most famous drag queen in the history of drag. We also heard this rumor she was black, so we put her picture up on day one.
No matter what country you follow Drag Queens Galore from, we know we share a love for drag and that makes you our family. So from our “drag family” to yours, we sincerely hope you enjoy our month long celebration of drag queens in history, in music, in the now, and of course our sprinkling of RuPaul’s Drag Race girls who have forever made their mark on drag in their own unique ways.
