#DemocracySummer2020 wrapped up last week – but like any good performance, we're back with an encore!

We're teaming up with our friends at Drag Out The Vote to bring you a one-time-only virtual drag extravaganza voter registration and fundraising event tomorrow, September 10, at 9pm ET, benefiting Drag Out the Vote's first of it's kind Drag Ambassador Program!

Tune in on Facebook Live tomorrow at 9pm ET! » https://www.facebook.com/rockthevote/live_videos/

One in five LGBTQ+ people are not registered to vote. Drag Out the Vote's Drag Ambassadors, in all fifty states, are looking to change that through the art and activism of drag!

Join Drag Out the Vote and special guests for a night of fabulous performances and powerful mobilization!
Thanks again for joining us for #DemocracySummer2020 – stay tuned for more updates from Rock the Vote as we get closer to Election Day!

More on Drag Out the Vote

Serving voter realness.
Drag Out The Vote™’s mission is to educate, register, and turn out voters with the art and activism of drag.


WE’RE WORKING WITH DRAG ARTISTS IN ALL 50 STATES SPREADING THE WORD AND VOTING THE HOUSE DOWN.

IT’S NEVER BEEN DONE BEFORE... NOT LIKE THIS, HONEY.

LET’S SASHAY OUR WAY TO THE POLLS.

Drag Out The Vote™ is a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization that works with drag performers to promote participation in democracy. We educate and register voters at drag events online and offline, by organizing local and national voter activations. Led by fierce drag kings and queens across the nation, we advocate for increased voter access and engagement in 2020 and beyond.

Conceived in 2017, Drag Out The Vote™ was born out of one woman’s determination to get the LGBTQ+ and Allied communities engaged about voting. In realizing that 1 in 5 LGBTQ+ people is not registered to vote, and that 100 million people overall did not vote in 2016, Jackie Huba set out to find a solution.

Inspired by her friend Phi Phi O’Hara’s Puerto Rico benefit (a massive drag production held in 2017 to raise funds for Hurricane Maria disaster relief), Huba decided to use the power of drag to motivate voters at events across the country. With a strong history of activism, the art of drag carries a long and storied history of impact on social justice movements across the United States.

Formally established in 2019, Drag Out The Vote™ has quickly positioned itself to use drag to engage voters of all struts of life to sashay their way to the polls.
