Last summer, these two performers helped lift the veil on the long-ignored racism that had been festering in Boystown for years. Speaking out at the Drag March for Change in June and then, later that month, at a momentous virtual town hall meeting presided over by the newly formed Chicago Black Drag Council, they brought about the downfall of white drag impresario T Rex, citing multiple instances of tokenism, as well as racist themes and taunts during performances and rehearsals. By openly challenging the hiring practices of show bookers and bar owners, Lucy Stoole and Jo MaMa broadened the antiracist movement in Chicago and nationally.
