YAS QUEEN SUNDAYS
On November 25 at The Phoenix, a $3 cover will get you a whole evening of music, drag, and festivities galore! One of my personal favorites will be performing: Dreama Belle, a Virginia queen who, when she isn’t reading to children or headlining Charlottesville Pride, pops into NYC to deliver a show to remember!
