This fun event features all kinds of drag queens. It’s the perfect way to spend a colorful and musically filled weekend. Don’t let the Maspeth venue discourage you, it’s not very far from Bushwick and Ridgewood. There are buses that go right by Knockdown Center. And the show is definitely worth leaving the immediate area for.
