This platform is much more than just a beauty contest, it highlights the aim of ‘Drag with a Purpose’ to inspire ordinary people that carry out extraordinary things to advocate the advancement of LGBTQIA+ rights, drag culture, serve as agents for change and uplift their communities by serving as positive role models”.
