Join us for a special Drag Queen event with drag kid and LGBTQ advocate Desmond is Amazing, whom RuPaul once called "the future of America." They'll present their debut picture book, Be Amazing: A History of Pride, in conversation with Miss Gay Arizona America 2015 Nevaeh McKenzie.
In Be Amazing, drag kid Desmond is Amazing walks you through the history of the LGBTQ community, all while encouraging you to embrace your own uniqueness and ignore the haters.
Desmond is amazing—and you are, too.
Throughout history, courageous people like Marsha P. Johnson, Sylvia Rivera, and RuPaul have paved the way for a safer, more inclusive society for LGBTQ individuals, and it’s thanks to them that people just like Desmond can be free to be who they really are.
