Featuring fresh, fun, fierce and local drag queens, the second season of the “Drag Queens Are Coming!” show at Cat’s Cradle is on Friday, March 22 at 10 p.m.
After a hiatus, hostess Naomi Dix is back, and she said she plans for this show to be a cohesive and polished artistic experience.
“We are here to create a continuous safe space for everyone and anyone within Carrboro and Chapel Hill,” Dix said.
With the rise in popularity of the TV show “RuPaul's Drag Race,” Dix said that now drag has never been more culturally dynamic. Drag as an art form and a cultural experience has made its way into the consciousness of mainstream media.
Dix said it’s important to remember talented drag queens are in your area, and drag is not an unattainable art form that only exists in major metropolitan cities.
“Drag also exists within your own neighborhood. And a lot of people don’t know,” Dix said.
Dix, who organizes all the performances, said she tries to incorporate something special at each show. This show's special halftime performance features Vivica C. Coxx, creator of the House of Coxx and also Dix’s "drag mother."
The show will feature performances from Dustin Reams and Stormie Daie, as well as a special out-of-state queen named Tifa Wine.
Daie is also the drag daughter of Coxx, and she said this show will be perfect for the Spring Equinox.
