RuPaul's DragCon, an event run by RuPaul Andre Charles and World of Wonder Productions, has grown into the world's largest drag convention since its birth in 2015. Every year, the convention provides a space for drag enthusiasts of all ages to meet their favorite drag queens and kings, purchase merchandise, attend panels, watch performances, strut down the runway, or hang out in the Kids Zone for drag queen story hour. This year's convention took place in May at the Los Angeles Convention Center and had over 50,000 drag enthusiasts in attendance. This work was commissioned by the Los Angeles Times and can be viewed here.
