Bushwig is not a merkin

For five years, Brooklyn has been home to Bushwig, one of the biggest drag festivals in modern-day New York City. It started as an underground gathering of 30 queens in 2012, and now features 150 performers.

Bushwig was founded by local Brooklyn queens Horrorchata and Babes Trust, and over the years has exploded into a weekend-long festival, featuring performers, local vendors, “vintage” sales (Hello, Michael Sanders) and food trucks. Trust says, “It’s a celebration of drag and the history of performance mixed with well-known DJs and icons from across the world.”
