An “all-ages drag show” is set to be held in Flagstaff, Arizona on June 17 with the group putting it on originally advertising that the event was sponsored by Bud Light, only to remove that claim from its fliers, calling it a mistake.
It appears that Bud Light was mistakenly put on the original flier for the party, which is called “Pride in the Pines.” The event includes drag queens and other performers. However, the next day the claim was removed as media outlets started running with the story, according to the Daily Mail.
The event is organized by Flagstaff Pride and is still set to take place, albeit without the funding and promotion of Bud Light. It will feature a number of drag performers and is open to “all ages” and is listed as a “family festival event” and a family-friendly, “safe space” for all visitors. The event asks those that are under 16 to bring a guardian with them.
Less than 24 hours after the 27-year-old LGBTQ group posted the promotion that mistakenly listed Bud Light as a sponsor, it was revealed on Wednesday that was not the case. Unfortunately, for Bud Light, many credible organizations such as The Washington Free Beacon had already picked up the story. It appeared to many that Bud Light was doubling down on support for transgenders such as Dylan Mulvaney.
A day after the promotion made waves, the group released an amended poster, notably without the Bud Light tagline. They also gave a vague explanation as to why they included Bud Light in the first place.
“We put out an incorrect promotional poster which included Bud Light as a sponsor,” a Facebook post claimed on Wednesday evening, as Modelo Especial dethroned Bud Light as the top-selling beer in America after 22 years.
“Attached is the correct poster,” the organization added while attaching a nearly identical one that showed several men in drag sans the sponsorship of Bud Light.
It’s hard to believe that after the disastrous Dylan Mulvaney ad campaign by Bud Light that a promotion like this could mistakenly happen. But it is possible.
A spokesperson for Bud Light’s parent company Anheuser-Busch, which also owns Modelo, confirmed to the Daily Mail that they were not a sponsor of the event. They claimed it was just a mistake.
The spokesperson asserted, “Bud Light is not a sponsor of this event.”
Both fliers promote the event’s mission as one that seeks to “support, unite, and strengthen our LGBTQIA2S+ community.”
The social media accounts of the drag queens who will perform at the event show their work to be very sexual in nature. Instagram posts from the accounts of every performer who will be at the event include risque photos of them while in “costume.” Two describe themselves as “sexy,” along with another who opts for the description of a “good girl.”
