‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’ Star Kameron Michaels Sets Off Weekend of Lubbock PRIDE Performances
Ru Paul's Drag Race superstar Kameron Michaels returns Friday night (August 26th, 2022) to Lubbock to perform at club Rewind (1802 Buddy Holly Ave) for the official LubbockPRIDE pre-party. There is no cover for the event before 10 p.m.
Kameron placed as runner-up in Season 10 of RuPaul's Drag Race, and also starred in RuPaul's Drag Race Vegas Revue, and All Stars Season 6.
This is not Michaels' first appearance in Lubbock. In fact, I had the great pleasure of interviewing her early in my radio career. Season 6 was still going, and she was my personal favorite. I was very pleased she went on to win 2nd place on the show. It feels so good to believe in someone and get proven right.
The Kameron Michaels pre-party is just the beginning of a weekend full of LubbockPRIDE drag performances.
Beginning at 7 p.m., LubbockPRIDE will have drag performance with 17 queens in celebration of 10 years of Pride in Lubbock, hosted by the gorgeous and hilarious Emologie Raven. (If you're asking yourself, is there a connection between my name Renee Raven and Emologie Raven? Yes, there is.)
Saturday night at Rewind is the Pride after-party with over a dozen talented local and regional queens performing. Sunday morning is drag brunch and drag queen story time at Tumbleweed & Sage Coffeehouse (610 Donald Preston Drive). Sunday night at Rewind is the "Wind-Down" party, hosted by Trina D'Angelo.
If you've never attended a drag performance before, you're missing out. It's impossible to not have fun around beautiful, creative and talented queens. If you can, be sure to tip, but if you can't, "tip" with your eyes. Engagement in the show makes it more fun for everyone.
Happy PRIDE y'all. I love you.
