Take part in male drag, guided by our resident king Adam All and a makeup artist. Learn how to contour and shape your face, change your walk and voice, or use our walk in wardrobe of male historical looks to complete your drag. Capture your look in our portrait studio and find your inner king with a free portrait to take home. 

National performer and expert in kinging Adam All will be you’re host for the afternoon. Adam is a talented artist and will be on hand to entertain, explore identity, gender and politics. Master the language and etiquette of being a king for a day.
