International Drag Day is celebrated on July 16th and was originally created to recognize and appreciate the drag queens, drag kings, and all members of the LGBTQ+ community that have made a significant contribution to the drag community. It is a day to celebrate and honor the art of drag and drag culture, and most importantly, have fun!
