In these confusing political times, it’s very difficult to figure out exactly what you should do in order to be politically active. You may find yourself asking:
If I wear a red dress and run around drunk for a few hours, does this somehow raise money for charity without me donating a dime?
Well one thing you can do is come out to Extra! A monthly political cabaret where drag artist from New Orleans use their time on the stage to make statements through satire, comedy, conceptual performance art, personal stories, and nearly anything else.
These days the news and politics are so confusing and ridiculous that the only people qualified to report the news are drag kings, queens, and in betweens.
More than just a drag show, Extra is a space where drag artists and fans can come together to get empowered, get connected, laugh, and even occasionally bawl their eyes out. The show has challenged the performers to go deep and brought out some truly amazing work.
Come prepare for all the debauchery of Southern Decadence with some of New Orleans’ brightest stars bringing you numbers with comedy, joy, tears, and, as always, something unexpected.
