The popularity of Emmy-winning Rupaul’s Drag Race has brought the art of drag to the masses. Lucky for us, Los Angeles boasts some of the most sensational, celebrated performers in the business, including Mama Ru herself. You can find weekly showcases with immaculate lip-syncing and dead-on celebrity impersonations, punk rock dance parties - even bingo, books and brunch, drag in L.A. does it all.
