Headliners for Pride: The Caravan of GLAM


Headlining on this year’s Capital City Pride entertainment stage will be drag-dance sensation The Caravan of GLAM. This Portland, Oregon-based troupe has been involved with Pride for three years. Its shows are highly interactive and audience-driven, so much so that they often invite local performers to join them on stage. On tour after four days of shows at Allways Lounge and Cabaret in New Orleans, The Caravan of GLAM is currently led by dancers Isaiah Esquire and Johnny Nuriel.

It’s the brainchild of Justin Buckles, owner of Justin Buckles Productions and Justin Buckles Management in Portland. The troupe was formed in 2013 and performed in Portland, Bend and Eugene before quickly expanding to dance throughout the western half of the country. Following three visits to Fairbanks, Alaska, local publication newsminer.com exclaimed, “While the show is at times over the top and encompasses some of the raucous, outrageous behavior for which drag acts are known and loved, the troupe also spreads a message of inclusivity and acceptance.”

The Caravan of GLAM, featuring acrobatics, fabulous costumes and song and dance, performed on America’s Got Talent, season 10 before scheduling conflicts obliged the troupe to drop out before judges’ cuts. Over 50 performers appear in the group, but it’s unknown how many will drive up from Portland for Capital City Pride.

Buckles says, “The Caravan of GLAM includes performers that have traveled the world with their art. Don’t miss out on this internationally renowned cast.”
