Drag Invasion proves that not all heroes wear capes. Some heroes save the day wearing heels and wigs.

LGBTQ communities in Peru are still victims of an extremely conservative and religious culture. Experiencing homophobia and not always free to live their lives openly, these communities have found solace in episodes of RuPaul’s Drag Race. In 2017, dozens of drag queens from the reality competition show arrived in Lima to perform at a series of sold-out parties, affecting the country in ways that no one expected.

Drag Invasion tells the story of a surprising phenomenon that mobilized, energized and empowered LGBTQ Peruvians.
