Compete to Perform

Only the TOP FIVE FUNDRAISERS will perform at the event, competing to win the title of Drag Superstar. And the top three fundraisers will receive extra points toward their final competition score. At the show, competitors will perform a talent of their choice (lip-synch, singing, dance, etc.) IN DRAG and be asked an interview question, both of which will be scored by our celebrity judges. Before the show, contestants will be matched with a local drag artist to have their makeup done. Contestants are responsible for purchasing their own outfits, hair, and makeup. Contact Kylie Minono at or 415-369-7617 with questions or if you need help pulling your look together. The winner of So You Think You Can Drag will be given the title of Drag Superstar, a sash, crown, and major bragging rights. There are no obligations for the winner, though we hope they will help support next year’s event.
