About Drag Out The Vote
Drag Out The Vote™ is a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization that works with drag performers to promote participation in democracy. We educate and register voters at drag events online and offline, by organizing local and national voter activations. Led by fierce drag kings and queens across the nation, we advocate for increased voter access and engagement in 2020 and beyond.
Drag Out The Vote launched its Drag Ambassador program this year, a national, first-of-its-kind program assembling drag artists across the country to get out the vote. Since its earliest inceptions, Drag has blended art and activism. On stage and online, drag performers command attention, speak their minds, and make a statement with every move. Drag queens gave us the Stonewall uprising in 1969. The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence organized and educated the queer community during the HIV/AIDS crisis of the 80s. They challenge our perceptions of gender, headline Pride main stages, and speak their minds every day, so we asked ourselves - how do we empower those artists to increase voter turnout? Our Drag Ambassadors are equipped with social media content, video PSA scripts, resources for voter registration, and more to empower them all to turn their audiences out to make their voices heard.
1 in 5 LGBTQIA+ people is not registered to vote. Youth turnout continues to be a challenge. 100 million people did not vote in 2016. We must fix this. Let's #DragOutTheVote!
