This year, New Year’s Eve is bound to look different — with social distancing guidelines still in place around the world, large, public gatherings to ring in the new year will be virtually impossible.
But a group of RuPaul’s Drag Race stars are making sure that our celebrations are still possible, virtually.
On Monday (Nov. 30), Producer Entertainment Group announced that 16 stars from Drag Race would be participating in an 11-hour New Year’s Eve virtual marathon event, “PEG Presents New Years Queens: Goodbye 2020,” on Friday, Dec. 31, taking place around the globe.
Hosted in New York by Miz Cracker and Peppermint, and in Los Angeles by Trixie Mattel, Katya, Alaska Thunderf–k and Bob the Drag Queen, the event will feature drag stars putting on their best outfits and delivering sickening performances.
Some of the official performers for the event include stars like BeBe Zahara Benet, BenDeLaCreme, the Boulet Brothers, Divina De Campo, Ginger Minj, Jinkx Monsoon, Jujubee, Manila Luzon, Sharon Needles, and Trinity The Tuck, each coming from different cities around the globe.
“I am honored to have the chance to ring in the new year, not once, but multiple times,” Alaska said in a statement. “Bob the Drag Queen and I shall be hosting the festivities, and I look forward to counting down with glee as each time zone bids adieu to the garbage pile that has been 2020. May 2021 bring us peace, unity and restaurants that are indoors.”
“PEG Presents New Years Queens: Goodbye 2020” will take place on the streaming concert venue Sessions Live from 3:00 p.m. EST on Dec. 31 to 2:00 a.m. EST on Jan. 1. Get your tickets here.
