Las Vegas royalty descended on Hard Rock Cafe on Sunday to cement Sin City into the record books for the Largest Drag Stage Show. Surpassing the current record of 55 participants, 61 kings and queens came out to the Paradise location to lend their support and work their fiercest dance moves to a special mashup of “Let’s Have a Kiki” by the Scissor Sisters.

Taking place during the cafe’s monthly drag brunch, this special performance was not restricted to professionals only. Many joined the festivities upon arrival by visiting the event’s “Drag Wash” and were able to be transformed on the spot by the fabulous Glam Squad 702, who ensured everyone was stage ready for the original number choreographed by local talent Paul Pratt Productions.

In addition to hosting a fun-filled day of record-breaking performances, the event was meant to act as a symbol of the cafe’s global mantra to “Love all, Serve all” as well as benefit The Center – Serving the LGBTQ Community of Nevada.
