The Great Big International Drag King Show 6 presents
The Great Big, Volume 6!
WASHINGTON, DC ‒ Drag Kings from across the US, UK, Canada, and Sweden will converge on May 19-20th, 2006 for The Great Big Weekend. The Great Big Volume 6 will spotlight twenty five performances on Friday, May 19th at the 9:30 Club from 9 p.m. to 12 a.m. The Great Big Volume 6.1 will feature ten more drag performances at Apex on Saturday, May 20th from 11 p.m. to 3 a.m.
The Great Big Volume 6
The Great Big Volume 6 is honored to be the featured entertainment of GenderPAC’s GenderYOUTH Summit, May 18th-May 20th. The Gender YOUTH Network prepares students to combat discrimination caused by gender stereotypes. The Great Big complements the message with a celebration of gender expression. Fans and conference participants will watch as Drag Kings take over the 9:30 club for the third time. This show is all ages. Tickets are $20 and may be purchased at the 9:30 box office or on the web at www.tickets.com on March 9, 2006. Doors open at 8 p.m.
“The National Conference on Gender brings together activists, educators and students for three days to discuss gender policy and strategy. Drag kings are the gender-bent rock and roll fantasy, the arbiters of pop-sized political messages and as American as Rogers & Hammerstein musical comedy. We are glad to team up with The Great Big International Drag King Show...” says Riki Wilchins, Executive Director of The Gender Public Advocacy Coalition
The Great Big Volume 6.1
Interest in the Great Big Drag King Show has to the extent that we decided to add a second night of entertainment on Saturday, May 20th. The Great Big Volume 6.1 is 18 and over and will feature entertainment from North America and the UK. These performances are not for kids. The show will be followed by a dance party to celebrate the Great Big Weekend. Cover is $10 at the door. Doors open at 9 p.m.
About the Gender Public Advocacy Coalition The Great Big Volume 6 is sponsored by the Gender Public Advocacy Coalition. GenderPAC works to end discrimination and violence caused by gender stereotypes by changing public attitudes, educating elected officials, and expanding human rights. We envision a world where every American – male, female, of color, youth, gay, straight, or transgender – can contribute their talents and be judged on their merits, regardless of whether they fit narrow gender stereotypes for masculinity or femininity.
