“Dykes Do Drag” – the title says a mouthful but not all there is to say.

Dykes Do Drag are queers of all genders and orientations, celebrating an expanding continuum of gender expression and performance in the Upper Midwest for 15 years. This edgy performance art cabaret features the Twin Cities best as well as newcomers in traditional Drag, burlesque, live music, boi-lesque, modern dance, video and visual art, and lip synching in enticing and exciting hilarity.

A few more bombastic terms to describe DDD include but are not limited to: sexy, radical, entertaining, titillating, kinky and weird. We perform 5 times a year at the Bryant-Lake Bowl!
