A virtual show featuring performances by top drag acts and talks by members of Birmingham’s queer community will be raising money for Black Lives Matter this weekend.
Alt Pride Sunday show, presented in collaboration with Mother's Meeting and Dragpunk Family, will be streamed on Twitch on Saturday 27 & Sunday 28 June, from 6pm each evening.
High-profile Birmingham drag star Sum Ting Wong, who last year shot to fame in the first series of RuPaul’s Drag Race UK, is included in the show’s Sunday line-up.
The event will be donating all proceeds from the group PayPal (PayPal.me/DPxMm) to a bail fund that gets spread across 70-plus community bail funds, mutual aids funds, racial justice organisations and The Homeless Black Trans Women Fund.
Viewers can also enter the raffle to win a drag bundle worth £650. All they need to do to enter is donate £3 or more and add their Instagram handle to the PayPal message.
The Alt Pride show can be viewed at www.TWITCH.TV/DPXMM
