Ypsilanti drag group takes performances online during pandemic
Fundraising isn’t new for the drag troupe, which has been regularly hosting benefit shows for many years, but performing online is. Since then, the group has done over 150 virtual shows.

Boylesque is the only group to do virtual shows at least three nights a week, according to Black. Over the course of the past 10 months, Boylesque has done themed shows for holidays, monthly benefit shows for Ypsilanti Meals on Wheels and shows for political causes.
