In America, 1 in 3 women and 1 in 4 men have experienced some form of physical violence by an intimate partner, and every day domestic violence hotlines receive approximately 21,000 calls, an average of close to 15 calls every minute, according to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence.
In an effort to raise money for Wings For Women
, a local nonprofit that provides services to women and children that are facing domestic violence, drag queens from across Arizona will be coming to Tucson to perform on the Screening Room stage starting at 7 p.m. this Sunday, July 29.
According to their Facebook event
, the lineup currently includes: Miss Nature, Apple Q. Bottoms, Queerella D' Vil, Leaoura D' Rains, Phoenix Peacox, Jeena Doucure, Luna Louvet, Lisa DLeon, Lady Ashley, Cassandra A. McKenzie, Ima Peepers and Ana Malia.
Each performance will be dedicated to the empowerment of women, and the show is open to all ages. 100 percent of the proceeds will be donated to Wings for Women, and the organization's founder will be present to talk about the work they do in the Southern Arizona community.
