At this point it’s probably pointless to repeat but drag is everywhere. Hollywood, music videos, and now … airports? In what United Airlines is reporting as the first of its kind, Newark Liberty International Airport will play host to a DJ Drag Brunch. Best part: it’s open to everyone in Terminal C.
On Thursdays, Terminal C’s Global Bazaar will host a cet of performances from 10 a.m. until 11:45 a.m. Of the scheduled performers: the dancing diva of Texas herself, Miss Gay US of A 2019 winner and RuPaul’s Drag Race competitor Kennedy Davenport. Alongside her will be Jahlissa A. Ross, Pattaya Hart, Fifi Dubois, Caracol Richards, and Daesha Richards. The event will be hosted by DJ Steve Sidewalk and Harmonica Sunbeam.
While the brunch itself will be private (members of The Trevor Project, United EQUAL members, and MileagePlus Exclusives auction winners) before and after the brunch, the queens will travel throughout the terminal so that everyone can get in on the fun.
Proceeds from the event and every MilagePlus mile redeemed from the brunch will benefit The Trevor Project with a minimum donation on behalf of OTG, the hospitality group putting on the event, for $10,000. Sounds like we might be booking a last minute trip out of Newark just to see Kennedy! There has to be a nice Pride happening at the end of one of those flights.
