Announcing 3rd Annual "Make Drag, Not War!"

San Francisco, CA — Veteran Artists and Iraq Veterans Against the War are proud to present "Make Drag, Not War 3!" Sunday December 4th, 2011 at Dance Mission Theater. Make Drag, Not War! is an annual benefit for Veteran Artists that pairs San Francisco's most theatrically talented drag queens with recent military veterans to tell their stories through drag performances. Dance Mission Theater has generously donated their space for the third year in a row for a night of dragtivist theater touching upon issues affecting veterans such as post-traumatic stress disorder, Don't Ask - Don't Tell, and the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

This year's cast of queens are some of San Francisco's fiercest: Raya Light, Miss Rahni, Lil.Miss.Hot.Mess., Phatima, Kallisto, Tara Wrist, Alexis Blair Penney, Honey Penny, Mutha Chucka, and more TBA! With performances by Rotimi Agbabiaka, Flynn Witmeyer, the League of Burnt Children, a short play by Sam Kehl, and over a dozen veterans from Iraq, Afghanistan, & Vietnam Wars. Artist Malcolm Drake returns as host.
