For the first time ever, a record 28 RuPaul’s Drag Race queens came together for a very special cause.

Phi Phi O’Hara organised the Queens United/Reinas Unidas benefit concert in Minneapolis, which took place to raise money for the victims in Puerto Rico affected by Hurricane Maria.

LGBT promotions company Flip Phone Events helped bring the concert together, with special appearance from the likes of Bob the Drag Queen, Katya, Ginger Minj, Alexis Michelle, Jiggly Caliente, and Naysha Lopez.

“I’m totally breaking brand for this,” Phi Phi told NewNowNext. “It’s powerful. It’s showing how much power one person can do, whether you have a TV persona people like or not. This is reality.”

Tickets sales for the event raised $50,000 alone, with organisers expecting to hit their target of $75k-100k once all the money has come in.

As well as tickets sales, the queens also donated their tips from the evening and proceeds from the merchandise sales.

“Queens United is a great name,” Phi Phi added. “I hope we bring it back. Because our president is not doing his job, we have to step up to the plate.”

Other highlights included Chad Michael’s lip-syncing to Cher’s Believe in her finest Cher outfit, as well as performances from Yara Sofia and Milk.

Meanwhile, the cast for RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars 3 was recently confirmed, and includes returning queens Shangela, Milk, BenDeLaCreme, Trixie Mattel and Chi Chi DeVayne.

All Stars 3 is expected to premiere in early 2018, and will see the contestants compete in a variety of lip-syncs, challenges and of course, Snatch Game.
