If you love watching drag and eating delicious fried chicken, we just found the ultimate party you need to hit up.

Drags Benny, a series of pop-up events in Canada supporting national Pride initiatives, is offering Vancouverites the chance to attend its inaugural event next month at Juke Fried Chicken Chinatown.

Some of the queens we’ll be seeing at this shindig include Vancouver’s Kendall Gender, Calgary’s Perla Coddington, and a local drag-cocktail-making duo known as ‘Bitter Queens’ (Juke Bar Manager Olivia Povarchook and Tiago De Souza Jensen).

Partial proceeds from ticket sales will be donated to QMUNITY, a non-profit local organization that works to improve the lives of queer, trans and Two-Spirit people and their allies.

Be sure to grab tickets now for this event, which is an opening act for a Drags Benny pop-up brunch being held on April 14 in Victoria’s Fairmont Empress Hotel featuring season eight RuPaul’s Drag Race contestant Laila McQueen.
