The words "summer" and "drag" don't usually belong in the same sentence — unless, of course, you find yourself under an Everest of wigs and 10 inches of foundation. To create this year's Ultimate Summer Fun guide, we went out in search of sultry pinup broads to represent each month of our lofty summertime agenda. What we found were five of the most delicious, hardest-working drag queens in Philly — come on, who knows how to have a good time more than a dude who likes to tuck? Don't worry, you don't need an affinity for sequins or an appetite for gender-bending to take part. Just throw on whatever toasty-month threads make you feel most alive and tackle as many of our 103 summer-hap suggestions as you can handle. From dyke rallies and naked yoga sessions to stitch-and-bitch circles and pole-dancing workshops, there's enough here to keep your flip-flops flopping straight through Labor Day.
