Drag is a hot topic these days: RuPaul’s Drag Race has spawned some superstars, and the rightwing is blaming all the world’s ills on drag queen story hours. But Tasha Kohl was an icon long before everybody else got in on the drag action. The legendary drag performer presents Tasha Kohl’s Icon Show on Sunday, July 10, in the Rose Room inside S4, 3911 Cedar Springs Road. Doors open at 5 p.m., and the show — featuring Sasha Andrews, Andora TeTee, Seymour Chilton and Kelexis Davenport along with the legend herself — starts at 6 p.m.
LifeWalking to brunch
The LifeWalk 5K has been one of the most high-profile fundraisers for HIV/AIDS services in North Texas since the early 1990s. But this year, Prism Health North Texas decided to walk a different path with its annual fundraising effort. Instead of a single 5K event in the fall, 2022 is the year for The Summer of LifeWalk, with a variety of events spread out over the summer and around the Gayborhood. This weekend, the Summer of LifeWalk continues with the LifeWalk Brunch on Saturday, June 9, at 11 a.m. at Roy G’s, 4001 Cedar Springs Road.
