#PrideDabbler returns to Loring Park for the 8th year on Friday, June 21 to celebrate the LGBTQ+ community and Minnesota craft beer. A portion of every ticket sold benefits Twin Cities Pride to help support their mission of commemorating the LTBTQ+ community’s diverse heritage, fostering inclusion, educating and creating awareness of issues, and celebrating achievements in equality.
The theme for the 2019 Beer Dabbler at Twin Cities Pride pays homage to the art form of “drag.” From the 1990 documentary “Paris is Burning” to the Emmy award-winning Ru Paul’s Drag Race, this art form has emerged from the shadows of gay nightclubs and is now making waves in popular culture. Drag is an art form that not only celebrates over-the-top exaggerated aesthetics and high-energy live performance but challenges the idea that gender is a binary concept. Drag performers have consistently been at the forefront of social awareness and change for the LGBTQ+ community, and are fearless, fierce, and fabulous—so we celebrate them!
