Among those performing in a drag fundraiser Saturday on Kadena Air Base in Okinawa was a drag king performing songs from Adam Lambert and Chris Brown.

Six service members – some gay, some straight – performed for a capacity crowd at the Rocker NCO Club to raise funds for the recently formed Okinawa chapter of OutServe-SLDN, a group which advocates on behalf of the military's LGBT community. The show is believed to be the first on a military installation to feature drag queens.

“We didn't think there was much of a desire for an event like this on the island but it has actually blown up,” Navy LT. Marissa Greene, co-chapter leader of OutServe Okinawa, told Stars and Stripes.

Greene said she hoped to sell about 75 tickets but wound up selling 400.

“We ended up selling 400 tickets in 10 days,” she said.

Manny Nuff, the event's sole drag king, said she chose to perform songs from Adam Lambert and Chris Brown because she “wanted some upbeat songs.”

“I just wanted something that I was going to have fun with. If I wasn't going to be entertained by the song, then I know nobody else was going to be,” she said. (A video report is embedded on this page. Visit our video library for more videos.)
