Victor Yates, Miss Barbie Q, Martin Matamoros, Ruby Buxom
The event will be loosely modeled around RuPaul’s Drag Race with the host, Victor Yates, being in RuPaul “boy drag” and the other performers being in various styles of drag (pageant, fish, androgyny/genderfuck, and camp). Three pit crew members (men dressed in their underwear) will be part of the performance as well. The readers will read new work that they have written or pages from banned books. The banned books will be on loan from the West Hollywood Library. Christopher Rivas, winner of The Moth storyteller competition, will coach the performers on how to better deliver their lines.
