Written by Angie Sharma on July 12, 2023
A Portland, Ore., venue is attempting to set a Guinness World Record by holding a drag show that lasts for a full 48 hours.
The Drag-a-thon began at 4 p.m. Monday at Darcelle XV Showplace and is scheduled to continue until 4 p.m. Wednesday.
The event is aiming to break a Guinness World Record and push back against drag show bans elsewhere in the country,
“Drag-a-thon came as a direct response to all the negative stuff against the drag and trans community in other parts of the country where they’re saying, ‘No more drag,’ and ‘Too much drag,’ ‘Less drag,'” Poison Waters told KGW-TV. “We’re going the opposite. We’re going to do more, more, more drag.”
The Drag-a-thon features more than 60 drag queens and drag kings, including RuPaul‘s Drag Race alums Eureka O’Hara, Lala Ri and Peppermint.
