The Queens and Kings of Juneau are more than drag show performers.They’re a family, that pulled together during the pandemic to support each other and entertain the community.

On this Wednesday’s Juneau Afternoon, a preview of a new KTOO documentary that looks at how a group of people came together – to live large in a time of isolation and shrinking social circles.

Registration is open now for another Pfizer clinic this Friday and Saturday, October 8 & 9 at Centennial Hall at www.juneau.org/vaccine (Photo courtesy of CBJ).

Also on this program:

  • CBJ COVID booster clinics, how and when to get an appointment.
