RuPaul’s Dragcon 2022 underway at the LA Convention Center – NBC Los Angeles

DragCon2022 is underway in downtown Los Angeles.

And if you’re a drag queen fan or friend, you’ll probably have a lot of fun at the Los Angeles Convention Center this weekend.

When you talk to people here you will really learn the story behind all that makeup and glitter and dresses…

If you want to have fun at dragcon, follow the advice of the experts.

“It’s all about attitude. It’s not about how you look, it’s about how you feel,” said drag queen Polly Filla.

“It’s expensive to look this good,” said drag queen Georgina.

Hundreds of drag fans and friends gathered at the Los Angeles Convention Center on Friday for the world’s biggest celebration of drag culture.

“It’s an event that helps normalize the industry, the job, the craft, the culture, the community,” the drag queen Bible Girl said.

Those who love this expressive experience know it’s more than just the ability to dress up.

“Drag helps people find an outward expression of who they are on the inside,” said Mykey O’Halloran, who works on wigs.

“I think it allows people to see themselves as their own canvas,” said drag queen Lamorra Lisa. “When you’re surrounded by glitter and wigs and jumping people, it’s hard to frown.”

Everything from crowns to hair can be found at DragCon2022.

“I think it’s just awesome to be able to embrace the outfits, the makeup, bring out an alter ego and break out of their everyday norm,” O’Halloran said.

It might not be everyone’s norm, but drag culture is growing and it’s here to stay.

Tickets for DragCon are still available for this event which runs until Sunday.
