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!
