According to the ACLU, there are currently 467 bills in the United States legislature targeting the LGBTQIA+ community. Many seek to ban drag on public property, as well as in any locations where individuals under the age of 18 could be present.

A significantly more dangerous series of bills are the ones seeking to ban age appropriate, medically necessary care to transgender youth under the age of 18. Several states are already trying to extend these harmful bans to include gender affirming care for adults.

This proposed legislation is a direct attempt to force the LGBTQIA+ community, particularly transgender and non-binary individuals, back into the closet, and the number of bills is growing exponentially by the week.

Many of these bills, if passed, will prove deadly for trans youth across the country. As anti-trans rhetoric continues to spread, it’s no coincidence that according to the 2019 annual FBI Hate Crime Statistics report, nearly 1-in-5 of any type of hate crime is motivated by Anti-LGBTQIA+ bias.

Drag Isn't Dangerous is a new charitable effort led by LGBTQ management firm Producer Entertainment Group in partnership with Black Queer Town Hall, a registered 501c3 charity. Co-presenters include GLAAD, GLSEN, HeadCount, UTA, Concord, Queerty, Obsessed, Loyal Studios, OUTtv, SERV Vodka and others.


The Drag isn't Dangerous event:

On Sunday, May 7, many of the biggest names in entertainment are coming together to raise funds for LGBTQIA causes to fight back against the recent false political narrative that drag queens and trans people are dangerous to children and society.

All funds raised will go exclusively to nonprofits focused on LGBTQ activism as well as local charities combating harmful bills against the LGBTQIA+ communities across the nation. A list of nonprofits is ongoing.

Drag Isn’t Dangerous is partnering with Black Queer Town Hall, a 501c3 charity organization founded by Bob the Drag Queen and Peppermint. Black Queer Town Hall will be providing Drag Isn’t Dangerous with financial sponsorship for their tax exempt status, accounting, holding of all funds, and reporting.

All donors will receive a receipt for tax purposes.

The following organizations have been named as beneficiaries, with more to come:

  • GLAAD
  • GLSEN
  • Headcount
  • Black Queer Town Hall
  • The ACLU Drag Defense Fund
  • Trans Justice Funding Project
  • LGBTQ+ Victory Institute

We've set our goal at $250,000 to start, and will continuously increase the goal as we meet it. We hope to raise as much money as we can for this initiative.

We are still hoping to add a few more hyper-local groups doing work on the ground in Tennessee, Florida and elsewhere. But it is important for potential donors to know that none of us who are organizing or appearing at this event are taking fees. There will be some hard production costs given the scale of the event, but this is truly a charitable effort with no personal gain, and hopefully a blueprint for how PEG and our artists can engage in philanthropy moving forward.

BQTH is committed to celebrating black queer excellence by supporting and cultivating community, sharing knowledge, and uplifting voices.
