Comedian Billy Eichner will join the RuPaul’s DragCon festivities in LA on May 12 for a special panel dedicated to energizing young people to vote during the November 2018 midterm elections.

The American Horror Story star will be joined by drag superstars Alaska 5000 and Peppermint for the panel in conjunction with the “Glam Up the Midterms” campaign, a program launched by Eichner and Funny or Die earlier this year.

HeadCount, a nonpartisan organization, will be on site with a voter registration booth throughout the weekend as well.

World of Wonder also announced that the convention will feature more than 30 Instagram-ready photo opps across the floor, including the actual Werkroom from RuPaul’s Drag Race season 10, the judges panel with cutouts of RuPaul and Michelle Visage, the Snatch Game set, the white horse from All Stars and the car from RuPaul’s “Cover Girl” music video. This year, DragCon boasts more than 90 queens in attendance -- the most ever. In addition, DragCon LA 2018 will feature the most queens ever, with over 90 in attendance.
