KNOCKDOWN CENTER, QUEENS
Bushwig is such a beautiful event and it is amazing to see it grow year after year, bringing more and more people together. They come to celebrate their individuality through performance and dress, bringing their most imaginative selves to life surrounded by a community of love. The best moment from this year, for me, was when my favorite people, performers, and producers of the Drag King Collective, The Cake Boys took to the stage. This collective has opened up stages and opportunities to Drag Kings, Things, and non-binary performers not often seen in NYC, not since the eighties. We all love to see the queens strutting on the stage, however, for this community to be completely inclusive, an appreciation must be made for such incredible performers as The Cake Boys, and that is what they have worked so hard to create!
