First up, the “Too Gay To Function: The Cultural History of Mean Girls” panel reunites Damian in the Broadway musical (Tony nominee Grey Henson), Damian from the film (Daniel Franzese, I love your work!), and Tina Fey’s real-life inspiration for Damian (Damian Holbrook) for a conversation on the cultural significance of Mean Girls and why it has become so influential in gay and drag culture.

#LegendsOnly at the #HouseOfGlenCoco event of the year. All the Damian’s. Joining me @whatsupdanny (your OG movie Damian,duh!) will be broadway’s TONY nominated @greyhenson and Tina Fey’s bestie she based our character on the fabulous pop culture writer/icon @damianholbrook. We will discuss the culture importance of Damian in the gay lexicon. ONLY @rupaulsdragcon NYC. I will be available for signing and selfies before and after at table C27! So write it down and come sit with us!
Then on the runway, YOU can enter the North Shore Winter Talent Show and lip sync for your life to Regina George’s big song “World Burn” from Broadway’s Mean Girls. The winner won’t get a $100,000 or a sickening supply of Anastasia Beverly Hills cosmetics, but rather the esteemed title of Queen Bee of North Shore. (Maybe your portrait will hang in a hall with Trixie, Chad, and Alaska?) The lip sync will be judged by none other than Tony nominee Taylor Louderman herself and B’way Damian, Grey Henson. Here’s the song, so you can get to practicing. Good luck, and don’t fetch it up.
Mean Girls runs at Broadway’s August Wilson Theatre, and DragCon NYC is gagging the children from September 28-30 at the Javits Center.
