Gather 'round, fabulous people because International Drag Day, June 16th, is a day that deserves all the glitter, all the glam, and all the love. It's a time to celebrate the artistry, creativity, and sheer power of drag's unapologetic self-expression.
While we've come a long way with acceptance and equality, recent legislation targeting drag performers has reminded us that the fight for our rights is far from over. But in the face of adversity, drag queens have always risen above.
This International Drag Day is a chance to honor all the past, present, and future drag performers for their contributions and empowering resilience.
So grab your stilettos, paint that mug, and let's dive into the brilliant world of drag! Discover how to honor this incredible day and celebrate it with delightful HOUSEOFLOVE ready-to-drink canned mocktails and cocktails.
International Drag Day Herstory
International Drag Day began in 2009 on Adam Stewart’s Facebook page for drag queens. His original intention to recognize and celebrate the rich history and vibrant culture of drag performances continues today.

Drag performances are a testament to the resilience and strength of the LGBTQ+ community, reminding us all that we have the power to make a difference.
