It’s going to be an evening of high-energy music, dazzling fashion and the spectacle only drag performers are capable of delivering when OutSFL presents RUBY ROYALE: A Tribute to Melissa St. John’s 40 Years of Drag Excellence & Community Service on Feb. 17 at the Lake Worth Playhouse in the LGBTQ+ sanctuary city of Lake Worth Beach. Show time is 8 p.m.

Most large and medium cities have maybe one or two queer theaters. We are extremely lucky that Wilton Manors/Fort Lauderdale has four LGBTQ-centric companies producing regularly. Of course, there’s Island City Stage, Wilton Manors’ premier LGBT-focused theater company, now in its 12th season. Then there’s Ronnie Larsen’s Plays of Wilton at The Foundry, and Lesbian Thespians an itinerant performing arts group founded and led by women and dedicated to diversity and innovative art. While not LGBT-identified, Empire Stage is home to several companies producing LGBT-themed shows, including Larry Buzzeo’s ArtBuzz Theatrics.

It’s almost impossible to get two queens to agree to anything, so imagine how much work it is to get 125 of them to sing the same song at the same time. Yet, the Gay Men’s Chorus of South Florida (GMCSF), which, in reality, is the Gay Men’s Choruses, since GMCSF merged with the Fort Lauderdale Gay Men’s Chorus, all volunteered to put in hours of work and by doing so, they created a magical holiday cheer-filled evening with “Celebrate the Holidays” at Hard Rock Live on Dec. 13.
