Don We Now Our Gay Apparel Drag Show
It’s that time of the year everyone . . . time for Lambda Alliance’s fall drag show, Don We Now Our Gay Apparel! Lambda Alliance has been sponsoring student-lead drag shows for five years, and this will be our biggest show yet!
The Don We Now Our Gay Apparel drag show features a student showcase of performance, talent and artistic expression but also serves to spread awareness and support for equality in regards to gender identity and expression.
This year we will have the lovely fan pick from RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 5, Penny Tration, as a guest and emcee! The show will also feature local performers, including Extasy Grey and Diego Wolf, to give the audience some of the Athens community flair that we all adore!
The Speakers Bureau of Lambda Alliance will hold a forum in conjunction with Lambda Theta Phi Latin Fraternity, Inc and the Asian American Student Association to answer any and all questions about LGBTQ life and identity from a multicultural persepctive.
There are unique struggles within racial and ethnic minority groups when it comes to gender identity and sexual orientation and we want to give a voice to those who may not always get to speak for themselves.
Panelists will answer questions about what it means to be Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trangender, or Queer, and will share from their own personal experiences about coming out, becoming conscious of their sexuality, dealing with homophobia, how their race and/or ethnicity play a role in their identity and much more. Students in attendance are free to ask questions or ask anonymously.
This will be a wonderful learning experience for anyone who would like to know more about, or to better understand, LGBTQ persons and lifestyles.
There will FREE PIZZA and DRINKS! Be sure to be there TONIGHT at 7:00pm in MLC 348!
