A museum co-founded by a Microsoft executive will help kids ages 12 to 18 learn how to create their “drag personas” at a cost of $400 per child.
Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen’s Museum of Pop Culture will be hosting a “week-long, drag-tastic summer camp” from August 8 to 12. The deceased executive’s sister is on the board of directors.

The museum said it has already filled all spots for its “Drag-tastic Summer Camp: The Art of Drag.”
“Led by Seattle performer Joshua Hancock, you’ll investigate drag history and work together with local artists to create your own personas,” the event description says. “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!”
“We celebrate creativity with all members of our community as a core part of our mission. Like any other arts enrichment program,” a spokesperson told Fox News. “[W]e 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.”
