Bars might be closed around Chicago, but the show must go on! Drag queens have moved online to provide virtual entertainment to everyone cooped up at home, and Chicago has no shortage of entertainment. Here are a few virtual drag shows to watch during Pride Month.
Saturdays @ 4 pm
This one-woman show has it all! Art, poems, stories, and music delivered to you by the insatiable Sophia Lucia. She has created her own style of theatrical anti-folk/funk/spoken-word/rock & roll music. Check out her drag queen show every Saturday from 4 – 4:30 pm.
All Week Long
Flip Phone hosts drag shows nearly every day, so you are sure to find something that piques your interest. You can check out dance parties, story hours, drag shows, and themed brunches at various days and times.
