A number of notable drag performers both local and national will perform at Seattle PrideFest on Sunday, June 30th at Seattle Center.
Among the popular performers are JINKX MONSOON, Seattle’s own/only winner of RuPaul’s Drag Race who will also be a Grand Marshal in the Seattle Pride Parade that day. Another popular name: VARLA JEAN MERMAN, the nationally known diva who starred in the cult film Girls Will Be Girls will also headline along with AJA, popular Season 9 star of RuPaul’s Drag Race.
Other names include drag diva/porn director/DJ CHI CHI LARUE, plus tons of local stars like MAMA TITS (who is technically not a local anymore since moving to Puerto Vallarta last year to headline her very successful cabaret show which she’ll also take to Provincetown, Massachusetts this summer). Popular Palm Springs diva ETHYLINA CANNE also fills out the headlining roster.
SATURN RISIN9 will also star; the San Francisco musician/performance artist will headline along with transgender singer/actor/model JAIMIE WILSON (also known as T-BOY).
And, rising rock stars THE TXLIPS will also take the stage…more on them:
