Can any doubt remain that they are after your kids, anyone’s kids, and everyone’s kids?
Well, are you ready to get your kids to unleash their inner king or queen? Seattle’s Museum of Pop Culture is hosting a summer camp where children aged twelve and up can learn the art of drag. Led by Seattle drag artist Joshua Hancock, the “Summer Camp: the Art of Drag” program aims to teach kids the skills needed to create and portray their own drag personas.
For $400 per week, children will have the opportunity to explore the world of drag and learn various hair and makeup techniques to help them develop their characters. The program has been running for the past two summers and has become a popular choice for “woke” parents across Seattle. The Museum of Pop Culture, home to the world’s largest memorabilia collection for Seattle musicians such as Jimi Hendrix and Nirvana, will be the location for this fabulous summer camp.
The summer camp is inclusive and open to “youth of all gender expressions and identities,” making it an exciting opportunity for any child interested in exploring the world of drag. The program will run from August 18 to 22, and the cost is $370 for those who register before May 31, 2022. After the deadline, the price will rise to $400.
The summer camp promises to be a fun and interactive experience. Children will have the chance to create their own drag personas, choose their names, and develop their characters’ stage presence. They will also work with local artists to learn about drag history and explore the art of self-expression.
The program is described as follows by the Art of Drag summer camp:
“Calling all current and future kings and queens! Explore self-expression in MoPOP’s week-long, drag-tastic summer camp! Led by Seattle performer Joshua Hancock, you’ll investigate drag history and work together with local artists to create your own personas. You’ll choose your name, explore hair and makeup techniques, and develop your character’s stage presence. At the end of the week, celebrate your new drag personas with a private showcase! ”
Joshua Hancock, who has been involved in Drag Theater for 30 years, believes that drag is for everyone. He has a Master of Arts from Texas Woman’s University in Theatre and has worked in various countries worldwide. His drag character, Parton, is based on Dolly Parton, and he uses her voice to spread love and open minds.
The Museum of Pop Culture spokesperson, speaking to Fox News, expressed their pride in offering young people an opportunity to explore self-expression through drag.
“We are proud to offer an opportunity for young people to use drag to explore self-expression through creating characters and performances that express and uplift their unique identities,” which apparently includes sex-based creativity with underage kids.
The museum was established two decades ago and offers exhibits on various aspects of popular culture, including film, music, and video games. The summer camp has been held in past years, but the invitation to middle schoolers is new territory.
