The holiday of Purim celebrates the courage of Persia’s Queen Esther, who, at risk to her life, revealed herself as a Jew to her husband, the king, in order to save her community from destruction.
Jewish author Anita Diamant calls Purim “the universal Jewish holiday of release, springtime, laughter, and excess." It is a time to celebrate and liberate everything that is usually oppressed. Jews have celebrated Purim for hundreds of years with parties, carnivals, and parades; a drag ball is the perfect addition. Guests are encouraged to come dressed in drag or a liberating costume.
