At 1 p.m., the Little Art Theatre will show “The Queen of Ireland,” a documentary that follows Irish drag queen Panti Bliss in the time leading up to the referendum for marriage equality in Ireland. At 6 p.m., the LIttle Art will screen “The Rubi Girls,” a documentary about the Dayton-based drag troupe, which performs and raises money for HIV research. The Rubi Girls themselves will be on hand for a meet and greet at the screening. 

Wrapping up the beer garden, a sidewalk parade from the Bryan Center through downtown YS will begin at 5 p.m. Capping off the event will be a performance from the Rubi Girls at Peach’s, beginning at 1 p.m.
