Nevada Air Force Base Hosts Drag Show For Attendees to Learn the 'History and Significance of Drag Performance Art'


By Cassandra Fairbanks

A Nevada Air Force base hosted a drag show this month as “an opportunity for attendees to learn more about the history and significance of drag performance art within the LGBT+ community.”

The “Drag-u-Nellis” drag show was the first one ever at Nellis Air Force Base.

The New York Post reports that the event took place at the Nellis Club, one of the on-base dining and entertainment venues, last Thursday.

An invitation for the show urged people on base to “Discover the significance of Drag in the LGBT+ Community.” It was organized by the Nellis Air Force Base Pride committee and sponsored by Nellis Top 3.

Nellis Top 3, according to their Facebook page, 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 organizers said that the goal of the event was to “enhance the morale, esprit de corps, of all enlisted personnel assigned to the [99th Air Base] Wing and to facilitate cooperation between members of the top three enlisted grades.”

Nellis spokesman Lt. Col. Bryon McGarry said in a statement that the event “was sponsored by a private organization and provided an opportunity for attendees to learn more about the history and significance of drag performance art within the LGBT+ community.”

“Ensuring our ranks reflect and are inclusive of the American people is essential to the morale, cohesion, and readiness of the military,” his statement continued. “Nellis Air Force Base is committed to providing and championing an environment that is characterized by equal opportunity, diversity and inclusion.”

The show featured drag queens from the Las Vegas area, including Coco Montrese, Makena Knight, and Alexis Mateo.

“Nellis Air Force Base is committed to providing and championing an environment that is characterized by equal opportunity, diversity, and inclusion,” a base spokesman told Newsweek.

“Base leaders remain supportive of events and initiatives that reinforce the Air Force’s emphasis on diversity and inclusion toward recognizing the value every one of our Airmen brings to the team.”

The spokesperson said that approximately 180 Nellis community members attended, and “feedback from attendees was resoundingly positive.”

      it’s a private organization, much like a booster club , that fund raises for itself. It is funded by itself so there is no federal funding for it. That aside, the Top III is for help support the professional development of enlisted members. I don’t see how this helps in any way the professional development of the military or the profession of arms. I am so looking forward to retirement.

    Disgusting.

    Notice that it says Nellis “community members” attended. It does NOT say military personnel. Community members could be anybody who works or lives in/around the base that had access to the event. Also it doesn’t say how many people live/work at Nellis AFB. It could be 20% of the total working/resident population or 2%. I know from my recent time in that the enlisted ranks (at least) were NOT receptive to this kind of thing. There are always going to be people who go because they know they’re expected to be there. That group is mostly SNCOs, NCOs and officers. Very few junior enlisted show up to events unless they’re told they have to, and I expect the same is likely true in this case.

      Sorry Marxists wannabes.
      I am just NOT buying that the US Military is going to put up with freakism in their ranks.
      Not for long, anyway.
      It’s time to call out mentally deranged folks and kick them to the curb.

      That’s pretty much my thinking. I always bailed if it wasn’t “mandatory fun” or at the very least go and say hi to leadership then dip out after 15 min.

    When I served we had the Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders perform, but at the current rate of change it’s only a matter of time before that is a drag show too.

    While I totally support drag shows, there is a time and a place for everything. This is entertainment and has nothing to do with the military. I have a problem with intersectionalist and identitarians trying to water down everything in society with their own personal beliefs and identity. Not everything is about them. We have a problem with narcissism and entitlement in our society and this is one reflection of that. People are trying to make everything about themselves. People need to be able to make distinctions between their personal life/feeling/activities and the function of their workplace. Everything doesnt need to be blurred together.

    This ladies and gentlemen is why you don’t allow gays to openly serve. It leads to commanders spouting woke cult bulkshit to defend drag shows on US military bases. This is exactly why the majority of military personnel were in favor of don’t ask dont tell. One of Trump’s biggest failures was caving on this issue after announcing he would re-implement it.

    • Bugsy says:

      i think there’s a difference between gays and gays in a cult pushing agendas for example. i actually have a lesbian niece serving. it’s pretty offensive, your comment, to the actual good people (including gays) that don’t believe in this drag queen bs being anywhere near military or schools. my niece is actually pretty bad ass at what she’s doing and does not believe in pushing her feelings on others.

    This is really good reporting, it would be great if Tim pool kept the promises he made in the launch video of the record breaking SCNR / Subverse wefunder and delivered this kind of reporting there as well. Maybe then all those investors wouldn’t feel like they were lied to.

    • Moemont says:

      Dame so times… Some times it just scooby-do be like that

      • 51773 says:

        The Ceo and founder of SCNR, Tim, is barely working on (if at all) anything unrelated to timcast. Zero updates since June 2020. Tim grifted a record breaking 1.2 mil wefunder by promising the very things that are only being delivered at timcast. Conflict of interest at the very least? He should step down at SCNR or make it right by giving people their money back (whatever’s left) or the value they invested in the form of subscriptions to timcast.

        Just want people to be aware that Tim is a class of grifter above those he accuses of grifting.
