Straight Men Stand Up Against Violence to Women in 'What a Drag'

February 17, 2020


We invite you to mark your calendar for the 2020 edition of What a Drag, Vallarta's most anticipated event of the year, with "Straight Men Standing Up Against Domestic Violence."

Hedda Lettuce "The Queen of Green" will be your host again at this year's show on Sunday, March 8, 2020 at 8:00 pm.

Join the Banderas Women's Shelter for the sixth annual What A Drag musical variety show. An evening of music, dancing, hilarious theater, and fundraising festivities to support the Banderas Bay Women's Shelter and Compassion for the Family.

What started out in 2015 as a fun way to raise money and awareness for victims of domestic violence in the Banderas Bay area has become one of the most anticipated yearly events in Puerto Vallarta.

And if you've ever attended, you know why.

Every year these men trade in their boots for high heels and get up on stage (in drag) to bravely and brazenly entertain the audience with their hilarious antics - all to raise money for the Banderas Bay Women's Shelter.



Compassion for the Family Inc. takes domestic violence against women very seriously. It is imperative that women and their children be offered a safe refuge. Compassion for the Family Inc. is committed to providing this service that is so badly needed in Puerto Vallarta and the surrounding area. In order to provide this service, Compassion for the Family has constructed a shelter in a discrete location in the greater Puerto Vallarta area. Non-disclosure of the location of the facility is imperative if the organization is to be able to provide a safe refuge.

Donation tickets are available at EventBrite ranging from 300 pesos to 1,200 pesos.

We hope to see you at Teatro Vallarta, Urugray 184, Downtown Puerto Vallarta, on March 8.
