From HotSpots: Celebrate ORGULLO’s 2021 Festival explores the ART of ILUSIÓN

Our partners at HotSpots report on this year's Celebrate ORGULLO (or-goo-yo), and this year's event explores the history and impact of Drag. The first person to describe himself as "the queen of drag" in the U.S. was William Dorsey Swann, born enslaved in Hancock, Maryland, who in the 1880s started also hosting drag balls in Washington, DC attended by other men who were former slaves, and often raided by the police, as documented in the newspapers. Find out more about the history of Drag in the LGBTQ+ Community, as well as a full schedule of events in HotSpots Magazine, on stands now!
