GSA drag show raises more than $1000
By Zayn Roohi
More than 100 people attended third annual Kings and Queens drag show last Friday night in the Wood Center Ballroom.
The show was hosted by the Gay Straight Alliance as a fundraiser for the club, and managed to raise more than $1000 from ticket sales and donations. In addition to the $5 ticket cost, audience members were encouraged to give money to their favorite acts. The methods that audience members used to give money ranged from normal to bizarre, with some people going to far as to stuff money down a performer’s shirt.
The acts themselves took on all forms, from a group of belly dancers opening the show, to a break dance crew closing it. There was also a band performing live, dancing and lip syncing throughout the night.
The night closed out with everyone coming on stage together for a brief performance and thank you to the audience.
