Two years ago a new entertainment company opened in Columbia, Missouri, called Nclusion.
 
Nclusion runs drag nights all over the state. It also serves as an advocacy and community building and empowerment group for LGBTQIA+ Missourians in a state where discrimination against LGBTQIA+ teens and adults is legal and where alarming anti-LGBTQIA+ rhetoric is common in the legislature.

These pictures are a depiction of one of the events they organized, where Luna Steelheart, the drag name of a performer from Kansas City, Missouri, celebrated her birthday.
