The inaugural Chicago is a Drag festival, taking place on Friday, June 28 in the Cheetah Gym parking lot in Andersonville, was a wet and wild affair. But brief periods of rain could not dampen the spirits of the crowd as they reeled at performances by special guests Raja, Candis Cayne and Spikey Van Dykey. Emceed by Aunty Chan, Dida Ritz, Khloe Park, Lucy Stoole and T Rex, the stage was populated by sparkling lineup of stunning local talent, including such names as Lila Star, Irregular Girl, Mokha Montrese, Alexis Bevels, Imp Queen, Danika Bone't and many more. The event was hosted by reality TV star Tiffany "New York" Pollard and entertainer, entrepreneur and LGBT activist TS Madison.
