As the coronavirus continues to spread, RuPaul’s DragCon LA announced Tuesday (March 10) that the planned convention set to take place on May 1, 2 and 3 has been canceled.
In a statement posted on their website, DragCon made clear that the cancellation was due directly to the outbreak of COVID-19, and that the “health and safety” of fans and queens must come first. “The situation in California (and the world) is rapidly changing, with new information coming out everyday,” the statement read. “Unfortunately, there’s no way for anyone to know what the situation will be like in May. Due to that uncertainty, and out of an abundance of caution, we’ve decided that it’s in the best interest of the talent, staff, and attendees to cancel RuPaul’s DragCon LA 2020.”
