the queer activist group Queering Defaults wants to organize an alternative, intersectional pride in leipzig again in 2023. spread over two weekends in june, a broad program with workshops, lectures, discussion rounds, community networking and exchange rounds will be organized. part of this year’s program will be a drag show on friday, June 9, 2023.

drag is a (queer) art form with a long history. through drag, gender norms are questioned in an artistic-performative way. drag queens, drag kings and drag quings work with music, song, dance, stand-up comedy and many other methods. in this way, gender as a social construct with its symbols, habitus and codes is playfully to strikingly presented, distorted, ridiculed or reproduced with commentary. the show creates a place where participants can try out gender performances without fearing discrimination. in accordance with the goals of the association, the aim is to promote and educate the participants in the fields of feminism, equality of all genders and queerness. through the artistic treatment and simultaneous educational work on the topic of drag, the empowerment of the participants is sought. the queer community is actively invited through the drag show to come together and make new connections. through the exchange among each other, a transfer of knowledge can take place and the development of local drag artists can be promoted in the long term.
