History Fort Lauderdale to Host “I Am What I Am: A Tribute To South Florida’s Drag Pioneers” at Galleria Fort Lauderdale

As part of History Fort Lauderdale’s 60th year of championing South Florida’s heritage, the nonprofit organization will present “I Am What I Am: A Tribute to South Florida’s Drag Pioneers” at 6 p.m. on May 31 at Galleria Fort Lauderdale. The free and interactive event will pay tribute to the local drag community for their support of philanthropic endeavors and entertainment. The event will include an official Stonewall Pride Month ceremony featuring a special pioneer presentation, an opportunity to meet the pioneers and surprise guest performances.

Six drag pioneers featuring South Florida’s Nikki Adams, Tiffany Arieagus, Cathy Craig, Daisy Deadpetals, Electra and Latrice Royale will be spotlighted. Images from the past and present, plus videos, costumes and artifacts, will be presented to highlight their success. A photo wall of fame will showcase many other outstanding local performers who perform in bars, nightclubs, casinos and theater productions around South Florida.

“History Fort Lauderdale is thrilled to pay homage to these endearing, enthralling and larger-than-life personalities who make our community a more colorful, creative and inclusive place to live and visit,” Patricia Zeiler says, executive director of History Fort Lauderdale. “The LGBT+ community has been dedicated supporters of and contributors to the vibrant fabric of Fort Lauderdale’s world-class arts scene and we’re excited to celebrate their contributions during PRIDE month and beyond.”
