Drag Queen Story Time and Brunch: Holiday Edition

Join Chicago Queens Lucy Stoole and Kat Sass for family-friendly story time inside Marisol, the restaurant and bar within the MCA.

Stoole and Sass sandwich performances between reading selections of their favorite books from the MCA Store for a holiday event for kids of all ages. Meet Kat Sass. Sass is a Chicago-based, non-binary, Greek and Native Drag Artist. They travel all over hosting, dancing, and singing for folx. In their smidge of spare time, they are also a production designer, art director, makeup FX artist, and wig and makeup designer for film, television, and opera. They are the creator and coproducer of the super successful three-year-old performance art rave GODDESS—the first monthly show in Chicago herstory that celebrates and spotlights female, non-binary, and trans drag queens at Berlin Nightclub. This year, they were the first person assigned female at birth to perform drag on national television when they were cast in Fox's Proven Innocent. They also placed in the top three in Alaska 5000's first ever Drag Queen of the Year Pageant. They most recently appeared in Sasha Velour's Nightgowns for the 50th anniversary for World Pride and have started a queer rock band called DAME JUDY that will headline and close Austin Drag Fest in November.
