The Clark County Historical Museum (CCHM) and the Imperial Sovereign Court of the Raintree Empire (ISCRE) are proud to announce a collaborative event celebrating 50 years of pride, inclusivity, and fundraising with an immersive presentation.

Timeless Elegance: A Half-Century of Glamour will explore the history of drag, storytelling, and the impactful fundraising and community outreach of the ISCRE, a vibrant Vancouver nonprofit organization. This special event is part of the History on Tap series at the Kiggins Theatre and will take place on Wednesday, June 12th, 2024, at 7:00 pm.

The presentation will be led by the renowned Epiphany Dale Monsoon Valentine, a pillar of the ISCRE community, along with fellow ISCRE members. The evening will feature a captivating exploration of drag performance, its rich history, and its role in social movements. The program will also highlight the ISCRE’s dedication to fundraising and community outreach, showcasing their 50-year legacy of making a positive impact in Clark County.

“We are thrilled to partner with the ISCRE for this unique event,” said Bradley Richardson, Executive Director of the Clark County Historical Museum. “Timeless Elegance promises an entertaining and educational evening that will shed light on the important contributions of drag performers and their art to our history.”

About History on Tap

History on Tap is a series of casual talks built on the premise that history didn’t end on some dusty date on the calendar but is a dynamic story where every person is an active participant. This amusing, informative, and interactive program returns for a sixth season of bringing together two of the world’s favorite things – history and beer – in one of Clark County’s most treasured venues, Kiggins Theatre.
