LOS ANGELES —The Los Angeles LGBT Center’s 4th annual Femme Fatale: Diva Drag Wars, a celebration of drag performers of color, will be held Thursday, December 3, at The Village at Ed Gould Plaza in the Renberg Theatre. Femme Fatale is part of the Center’s youth Mpowerment group Color in Common, which is a community of men of color, ages 18 to 24, that produce social events for gay, bisexual, queer, and same-gender loving men. This is a free event.

Celebrated transgender actress Mya Taylor will be honored for her work in the independent film Tangerine. Clips from the movie will be shown during the event and a private screening of Tangerine will be held on the following day for residents of the Center’s Youth Center on Highland. An original member of Color in Common when it was formed in 2012, Mya participated in the social group’s first-year activities, which included a condom-themed fashion show.

Similarly fashioned after the popular NBC series The Voice – Battle Rounds, Femme Fatale: Diva Drag Wars will pit two drag artists to perform a classic duet or a remix of the same song. The winner in each battle round will be chosen based on the amount of tips received in the buckets placed on opposite ends of the stage.
