U.S. Military Defends Drag Show at Largest Training Center as 'Essential to Morale'
The Nellis Air Force Base in Nevada hosted its first drag show in order to boost morale and promote inclusivity and diversity, according to the base.
The "Drag-u-Nellis" show was held at the Las Vegas base on June 17. The Nellis Air Force Base Pride committee planned the event, and the Nellis Top 3 sponsored the show.
According to the group's Facebook page, Nellis Top 3 is a "social and professional organization established to enhance the morale, espirit de corps, of all enlisted personnel assigned to the Wing and to facilitate cooperation between members of the top three enlisted grades."
The Nellis Air Force Base Pride committee focused on diversity and inclusion initiatives at the base, and the group is made up of volunteers across the base, Lt. Col. Bryon McGarry, a Nellis spokesperson, told Task & Purpose.
The show featured drag queens from the Las Vegas area, including appearances by Coco Montrese, Makena Knight and Alexis Mateo. The event intended to help attendees "discover the significance of Drag in the LGBT+ Community," according to the event's flyer.
The flyer was posted to social media by a podcaster who is a U.S. Air Force veteran.
