The annual UW – Milwaukee Drag Show hit downtown Milwaukee in stilettos, leather, and tons of glitter. UWM has been putting on the drag show for over 15 years, and each year, its popularity has grown bigger.
Hit the stage with Lady J in the video story below.
Lady J has been performing drag for over 20 years. From Miami to Milwaukee, Lady J now only performs at the annual UW-Milwaukee Drag Show, one of the largest drag shows in the Midwest.
As a host, that meant costume changes and dancing all evening at the Miller High Life Theatre for Lady J. The show began with a rainbow-decorated Pounce Panther. Panther dancers travelled from the stage to the theatre aisles where seats of students stood screaming, hyping up the dancers with fists full of dollars in the air.
Lex Allen graced the stage in a Lil Kim-inspired ensemble that included a purple wig, glittered pants and swirly glow-in-the-dark paint printed on his chest. His performance moved the entire theatre, making it another unforgettable drag show for UWM.
Jaidynn Diore Fierce, a contestant from season seven of RuPaul’s Drag Race, was the main event of the evening. Her performance brought students out of their seats to dance around the stage.
