How It Works

Do you have what it takes to be be a drag queen? Sign up as a contestant to live your fiercest fantasy and slay the competition, while raising funds to support the Harvey Milk Civil Rights Academy (HMCRA). HMCRA is a public elementary school in the Castro district with the mission to empower student learning by teaching awareness, acceptance and non-violence, celebrating our diversity, achieving academic excellence, and fostering strong family-school-community connections.

Fundraise

Won’t someone think of the children?!?!?! Get your friends, family, booty-calls, and everyone you know to vote for you by making a donation through your page. Remember, this is a fundraiser to help ensure San Francisco children receive an outstanding education with a Civil Rights focus. Donations on the website (www.canyoudrag.com) will open on Monday, January 29th and close at Noon on Saturday, March 3rd. All cash and check donations MUST be delivered to the organizers by Thursday, March 1st in order to count towards your total amount raised.

Matching donations – if your work will match your donations, please let Kylie Minono know what paperwork you need to register the Ducal Council with your work.

Compete to Perform

Only the TOP FIVE FUNDRAISERS will perform at the event, competing to win the title of Queen Of The Castro. 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 queen to have their makeup done. Contestants are responsible for purchasing their own outfits, hair, and makeup. Contact Kylie Minono at kylieminono@yahoo.com or 208-697-0551 with questions. The winner of So You Think You Can Drag will be given the title of Queen Of The Castro, an embroidered sash, crown, and major bragging rights. There are no obligations for the winner, though we hope they will be able to perform at next year’s event and help to pass the crown.
