What Do Drag Queens, Booze, And Gun Reform Have In Common?

Drag Queens, Booze, and Gun Reform...OH MY!

I'll take one mimosa with a side of social activism, please! SameSide is putting the party back in politics.

April 05, 2018

Sundays and brunch go hand-in-hand, but there’s no reason why your mimosa-filled mid-day meal can’t offer more.

A lot more.

Like drag queens. And a chance to support the fight for sensible gun control.

Sure, those may seem like bizarre additions to your usual helping of Eggs Benedict and French Toast, but Beverly Hills restaurant Nerano and host Natalia Foroutan of @imstillhungrytv are putting together a casual, fun-filled event to remind us that activism doesn’t have to be boring, serious… or even sober.

You get the ticket and we’ll take care of the rest. The food, drinks, and entertainment will abound as we offer a quick, comprehensive education on where gun control laws stand today. Then we’ll address how we can work together to get them to where they need to be.


Just by attending, you’ll be led through real action: making  calls to legislators, writing postcards, and posting on social media. AND there’s a photo wall to let everyone know you’re doing your part (and to spread a little FOMO).

Oh, and if you think the drag queens are just eye candy, think again. Like all Americans, they have a voice and have proven more than willing to use it. The most dangerous spot in the world is between a drag queen and a camera, and when it comes to social issues, they’re not just following — they’re leading.

Famed RuPaul’s Drag Race champ Bob the Drag Queen has served as an outspoken advocate for gun reform laws, and for good reason. While his mother was driving with his nephew, she was struck by a stray bullet fired at her for no particular reason. Senseless acts of violence will, sadly, never disappear entirely, but guns allows those behind them to cause more tragedy and destruction than they ever should.

Activism is serious, but it doesn’t have to be somber, and it doesn’t have to be sad. So take action with us on April 22nd at Nerano. You won’t even have to give up your regularly scheduled brunch, and your attendance will have a far bigger impact than you may realize.

You in?
