The Golden Gays Holiday Fundraiser & DragCon UK

We are raising money for early 2024 operating expenses which includes a trip to DragCon UK!

Do you hear that? It’s the siren call of sequins, stilettos, and sass, echoing all the way from London!

Hello! Thank you for being here.

We are The Golden Gays™, the premier Golden Girls Drag Troupe since 2017. We have been delighting crowds all over the U.S., Mexico, and the middle of the ocean ever since. And we could really use your help.

The Golden Girls is iconic for many reasons. It was groundbreaking during its time, addressing tough issues of the day and the cast was nothing short of perfection. We all know and love the middle-aged mavens: Blanche Devereaux, Dorothy Zbornak, Rose Nylund, and Ma - Sophia Petrillo.

The original show may have ended back in 1992, but its legacy still lives on through The Golden Gays™. The Golden Gays™ bring the Girls to the stage and bea-yond through music, comedy, and more.

It’s been our dream to strut our stuff across the pond, to serve the UK some Blanche realness, Dorothy zingers, and Rose innocence, and now we have the opportunity that could be the highlight of our golden drag careers.

RuPaul's DragCon UK

Picture it: London, 2024. The Golden Gays, sashaying down those regal aisles, bringing a slice of Miami sunshine (and perhaps some cheesecake) to the heart of Britain.

Have you ever dreamt of a world where the sarcasm of Dorothy Zbornak met the fabulousness of RuPaul? A world where 'Picture it' meets 'Sashay, Shantay'? Those dreams can come true, but we need a sprinkle of your magic (and coin) to make it happen.

The Glitzy Gist:

Getting The Golden Gays to the UK is no small feat. The barest essentials needed to get us and one of our staff members to DragCon UK – flights, sparkly bags, cozy lodging, local transportation (we can't sashay ALL the way across London), securing and decorating our royal booth, and the miscellaneous glitz and glam that comes with an excursion like this comes with a price tag of approximately $10,000.

Why Support These Glam Gals?

Now, you may ask, “Why should I part with my hard-earned coins for these glittering divas?” Well, honey, besides our ability to serve face, looks, and unending charisma, we’re here to represent every fabulous person who ever dreamed big. We're more than just a campy sensation; we're a beacon of hope, showing that with a little glitter and a lot of grit, dreams really can come true.

With every dollar you donate, you're not just funding our dreams; you're funding a movement. A movement of joy, of laughter, of cheeky winks and glamorous gowns. You're enabling us to spread the love and glitter that The Golden Gays™, DragCon, and the drag community is all about.

Golden Gratitude:

Whether you're a fan from our humble beginnings or just caught a glimpse of our glitter trail, we're grateful for you. We promise to not only represent, but to illuminate the spirit of every supporter as we slay our way through DragConUK. We're not just bringing ourselves to the UK; we're bringing all of you with us, in our hearts and in our sparkle. Every penny, every share, and every word of encouragement will be cherished.

Every donation, big or small gets:

A virtual kiss and thank you from us.
An imaginary hug, a wink, and
A shower of virtual confetti from us! (The real confetti will be saved for DragCon UK, obviously!)

If you can't donate, fret not - you can still help us!

Sharing this appeal with your friends, family, and fellow drag aficionados can make a massive difference. Remember, every sprinkle of support adds up in this glittering quest! With your help, we'll ensure there's plenty of "Thank you for being a friend" moments to go around.

From the bottom of our bedazzled hearts, we thank you. ✨

With all our love,
The Golden Gays™
