Annika Noelle – Hidden Talents

“Absolutely honored to be a part of the @dragisntdangerous telethon this coming this Sunday!” Noelle shared on Instagram. “[That’s when] you can join me and some of the biggest names in entertainment for a night of celebration as we raise money to combat recent anti-LGBTQIA+ legislation across the country.

“It will feature a mix of live and pre-taped performances, appearances, and testimonials from drag artists, LGBTQIA+ entertainers, celebrity allies, as well as a live celebrity phone bank accepting callers’ donations,” the actress continues. “That’s right, you might get to talk to me on the phone! Together, we can make a difference and stand up for equality. Drag is not a crime. It is art. Get tickets and make donations at Drag Isn’t Dangerous.”

Why Entertainers Are Banding Together

The Drag Isn’t Dangerous website cites the ACLU (American Civil Liberties Union) which says “There are currently 467 bills in the United States legislature targeting the LGBTQIA+ community. Many seek to ban drag on public property, as well as in any locations where individuals under the age of 18 could be present.

“A significantly more dangerous series of bills are the ones seeking to ban age-appropriate, medically necessary care to transgender youth under the age of 18. Several states are already trying to extend these harmful bans to include gender-affirming care for adults.

“Many of these bills, if passed, will prove deadly for trans youth across the country. As anti-trans rhetoric continues to spread, it’s no coincidence that according to the 2019 annual FBI Hate Crime Statistics report, nearly 1-in-5 of any type of hate crime is motivated by Anti-LGBTQIA+ bias.”

Don’t miss the chance to see Annika Noelle and others on Sunday, May 7 for Drag Isn’t Dangerous.
