SALEM, Mass.—Salem-born turned NYC drag star debuts her monthly party, #Yaasss, at Brother’s Taverna on March 2 to provide a safe and celebratory space for the north shore LGBTQ+ community, according to the event producer.
“The LGBTQIA+ community of the north shore needs a place to boogie and Miz Diamond Wigfall is here to bring it to you,” said the notorious drag queen & #Yaasss event producer. “This a place for everyone on the spectrum of gender or sexuality to feel loved, safe, and celebrated. It will be an extravaganza of queer culture; with drag shows, burlesque performers, and singers from all over the country.”
According to Miz Diamond Wigfall, the community can expect “new guests” and brand “new performances” every couple of months. #Yaasss will be hosted by Salem native and staunch ally to the LGBTQ+ community, Devon Cormier, she added.
An important part of the work Wigfall partakes in involves giving back to local non-profit organizations. The #Yaasss debut will benefit Project Out, a Salem-based 501(c)3 pending organization that provides services and financial assistance to transgender and gender non-binary individuals to allow for authentic living.
“Each month we will raffle off fun prizes with proceeds going to a local charity,” she said. “This month our raffle proceeds will be donated to Project Out!”
Catch Miz Diamond Wigfall at Brother’s Taverna on March 2 from 8 p.m. – 1 a.m. Shows begin at 8:30 p.m and 11:30 p.m. With signing, choreography, and comedy, there is no medium she’ll neglect to tell a story.
