LCC’s Gay Straight Alliance (GSA) will host its 12th annual drag show at Dart Auditorium on Friday, Dec. 14 with doors opening at 7 p.m.
Titled “Drag in Dreamland,” the show is said to draw inspiration from Alice in Wonderland, according to LCC student and GSA Secretary Cecilia Major.
“We kind of wanted to do an Alice in Wonderland theme, but we wanted it be more broad,” Major said. “So we thought of nightmares and ‘daymares’ and all those other sort of things.”
With $5 admittance, attendees can expect to see a plethora of performers jamming to music.
DJ Aura Pence will provide tunes as the show gets underway, and Lansing City Council’s Kathie Dunbar will have the honor of serving as master of ceremonies.
“I’ve never been to a drag show and I’ve never really been incorporated with anything considered to be a drag show, so this is going to be an experience for me,” Major said.
“I was helping buy clothes yesterday for one of the performers who are going to be in the drag show, and it’s going to be fun. It’s going to be a good time.”
Major said there are still plenty of openings for additional performers at the drag show. Attendees are also encouraged to tip the performers.
“Next year, we are definitely going to include a charity with (the drag show),” Major said.
The proceeds from the show will help fund GSA activities, especially the organization’s annual trip to the Midwest Bisexual Lesbian Gay Transgender Ally College Conference 2013 at Michigan State University.
“(The drag show) is definitely not something you get to see everyday,” Major said. “It would be a great thing to go to if you want to expand your horizons and gain new information. It will definitely be fun.”
