Y’all Means All’s “The Weekend”
In Natchez, Mississippi, Y’all Means All—meaning that the community itself, and all of its enterprises, thrive the most when they are inclusive. They’re also a lot more fun.
The organization Y’all Means All Natchez is a nonprofit organization benefitting local mental health organizations like Southwest Mississippi Mental Health Complex, National Alliance of Mental Health, Shareevolution, and others; and has a mission to provide safe spaces and community support for rainbow youth in the Natchez community.
“The Weekend” kicks off Thursday at Smoot’s Grocery with a double-billed Drag Show/Tupperware party—featuring Josalyn Royale and the crew, along with a comedy show by Dixie Longate, described as “one part homemaker, one part bull rider, and one part Oprah Winfrey”. 7 pm–10 pm. $20.
Friday evening, Choctaw Hall hosts the Welcome Cocktail Party starting at 7 pm, giving guests the chance to meet and mingle with wine and cheese before the real fun begins. $35.
Saturday morning brings a lively downtown Tour of Homes. Meet at Smoot’s to convene and grab a drink, then enjoy a trolley ride through the downtown streets while sipping cocktails (yes, it’s legal in this neighborhood of Natchez) and basking in historic Natchez magic including shopping, historic home tours, Natchez Under the Hill, and more. 9 am–2 pm. Free.
The evening brings Y’all Means All’s largest fundraising event of the year: the Battle of Belles & Beaus contest (wherein straight men and women try their hand at drag to vie for the crown of the Lip Sync Battle), this time with Ms. Kasha Davis of RuPaul’s Drag Race and Josalyn Royale performing and hosting. 7 pm–9 pm at the Natchez City Auditorim. $35; $50 for preferred seating.
Sunday (if you can drag yourself out of bed), is the Drag Brunch at Frankie’s on Main. Sip bottomless mimosas and enjoy the show, starting at 10 am.
