When news broke of Puerto Rico’s post-hurricane devastation, Flip Phone founder Chad Kampe decided to take action. He teamed up with Phi Phi O’Hara, familiar to many from season four of RuPaul’s Drag Race, to put on Queens United. “My husband is Puerto Rican and has family members still on the island that he has yet to hear from, so this hits close to home,” O’Hara told Billboard last month. Tonight’s lineup is stacked, and features major players from various seasons of RuPaul’s Drag Race, including Max Malanphy, Pandora Boxx, Ongina, Chad Michaels, Bebe Zahara Benet, Bob the Drag Queen, Jiggly Caliente, and Yara Sofia. Ginger Minj and Naysha Lopez will host. All proceeds from the show will benefit Somos Una Voz, an organization that is working to get food, power, medicine, shelter, and internet to Puerto Rico. If admission is too steep for you, O’Hara is also raising funds online; folks can donate any amount on the Queens United crowdfund at YouCaring. 18+.
