Rising Star: Amateur Drag Queen Show and Contest at

Until December 28

Dallas’ Oak Lawn area is has one of the largest gay neighborhoods in the country, which is why you can find drag shows seven nights a week.

One fierce show that never disappoints is the long-running “Rising Star” competition at the Rose Room on Cedar Springs Road. Every Thursday night, drag queens from across D-FW compete at the Rose Room for a cash prize and new fans.

Cartwheels and splits in high-heels, comedy routines and intense dance moves are just some of the things you’ll see during this weekly show.

Rising Star is attended by people of all genders and orientations. Cover is free for 18+ before 10 p.m. and the show starts at 11 p.m.

If you arrive early, ask about the drink and shot specials. Also remember to bring dollar bills to tip the performers!
