Dec 01, 2017 News

The Cayman Islands saw their first drag queen show last night (1 December) at the Kimpton Seafire. The Dinner, drinks and drag event was put on by the Cayman AIDS foundation to raise funds and awareness about HIV and aids. Director Noel Cayasso-Smith said his team came up with the idea to host a drag show because it has never been done before and they want to explore different ways of fundraising instead of their traditional galas. “It's really time that people realize that love is love and it's not all about it being drag, it's not a gay thing it's just being accepted, it's also being raising awareness and it's also stepping out of the box and being who you are,” said Mr. Cayasso-Smith.
