The Show

    DAVIS IS BURNING is an annual drag show and competition hosted by the Xi Chapter of Delta Lambda Phi, a fraternity for gay, bisexual, and progressive men. This gender-bending event began in 1990 and has grown to be the Sacramento Region's largest drag show.


    Come join the divas as they strut down the runway and werk it out in their hottest looks. Professional drag artists from the Sacramento area, other campus organizations and dance groups, and of course your DLP divas truly, will light up the stage


    It's a night of gender-bending fun for all of us, so we encourage your best drag ensembles, and in exchange, we'll crown the Drag King and Queen of the night, based on all your hoots and hollers! It's a night worthy of not a princess ... A DRAG QUEEN, MISS THING! So get ready for THE drag show of your life!

    The Competition

    Think you have the most FABULOUS drag outfit? Come dressed in drag and participate in our competition to be this year's Drag King and Queen. Participants must sign-up at the entry table in the theater lobby 20 minutes before the show starts. Good luck!
