#dragATX 2020 Calendar

therepubliq and Forever Young Photography are collaborating to bring you the inaugural #dragATX 2020 calendar, in support of Austins drag community. The 12-month calendar will be released in mid-October 2019 and will feature local drag performers from Austin and the surrounding area.

A portion of the calendar will be made available for presale with money raised from sales to be used to cover the costs of production, printing and promotion. The remaining calendars will be distributed to the featured models who will each keep 100% of the money they raise — from using it to help grow their drag, cover pageant expenses or donate to a local charity.

Publishers’ Choices

Half of this year’s models were selected by the publishers based on their history of using drag to raise awareness for causes dear to them and community involvement. The Publishers’ Choices for the inaugural calendar who are confirmed are Cupcake, Grandma Steven, Lady Grackle Birdbreath, Nadine Hughes, Sabel Scities and Simone Riviera.

People’s Choice

The remaining six models will will be chosen by the community through an open nomination process through SUNDAY, JUNE 30, 2019 followed by a voting period starting MONDAY, JULY 1, 2019 and run through WEDNESDAY, JULY 31, 2019. The nominees with the most number of votes will be invited to join in this year’s calendar.

Voting

Voting for People’s Choice nominees will open on MONDAY, JULY 1, 2019 and run through WEDNESDAY, JULY 31, 2019.
