“The idea of three big-city drag queens glamping out at the iconic Jack Daniel Distillery was an experience I couldn’t pass up,” said Bebe Zahara Benet. “I had no idea what to expect, but the distillery staff really rolled out the red carpet for us. Who would have thought we had so many fans in Lynchburg?”
“Jack Daniel’s gets drag culture — which is all about celebrating individuality and inviting others to accept you as you are,” said Trinity the Tuck. “As someone from a small town in Alabama, I’m thrilled to be part of a series that promotes dialogue between different communities while raising the visibility of LGBTQ+ people in rural areas.”
“This is how Pride should be celebrated: with friends — new and old — in a place you would never expect,” Manila Luzonadded. “After a year in lockdown, it’s great to be back outside doing the things we love while also experiencing something totally new.”
