Online Event: Werq The World: Pride Castle
What happens when eight drag queens are released from isolation to spend pride weekend together in a castle? Find out Saturday, June 27th, when trans activist Candis Cayne hosts the highly anticipated third edition of the ‘Werq The World’ Live Streams, Pride Castle. The show will feature RuPaul’s Drag Race favorites Heidi N Closet, Raja, Naomi Smalls, Kim Chi, Plastique, Season 11 winner Yvie Oddly, and Season 12 winner Jaida Essence Hall.
Come along with Candis as she leads viewers through the palatial hallways of Pride Castle. Along the way, viewers will be whisked into the regal rooms of the residing queens and treated to a grand performance by each. The tour concludes with a live ball featuring all of the queens together for one over-the-top majestic spectacular in the castle’s vast courtyard.
“This will be a unique experience as the queens have not performed together since the start of the pandemic in March,” says Brandon Voss, the show’s producer. “And this will be Jaida’s first live performance since winning Drag Race, so who knows what surprises she’ll have in store!”
In addition to breathtaking numbers and hilarious drama, Werq the World: Pride Castle will include a frank and direct round table discussion among the queens about this season’s Pride, and the impact the COVID-19 pandemic and the Black Lives Matter movement have had on the LGBT+ community.
Net proceeds from Werq the World: Pride Castle ticket sales and 100% of viewer tips and donations will be donated to the National Black Justice Coalition, an organization dedicated to empowering the black LGBT+ community.
Werq the World: Pride Castle streams live June 27th at 8PM EDT. Pre-sale tickets are $9.99 for a limited time at VossEvents.com. The show will be available for replay for 48 hours after the live event.
