Northwest College’s Gay Straight Alliance will host a drag show Thursday, March 22, at 7 p.m. in the Yellowstone Building Conference Center.

The evening of entertainment features a variety of competitive events, including formal wear modeling and “Lip Sync for Your Life,” as well as professional drag queen and emcee Tayzia Tyler Blaque. In addition, more than $500 of artwork has been donated by local artists to raffle at the event.

“Drag shows are a great way for the community to come together in playfulness and support,” said Rachel Hanan, NWC associate professor of English and Gay Straight Alliance adviser.

 Additionally, there will be a variety of prizes, including $100 for first place in the competition. All contestants are eligible for free professional makeup and performance assistance.

The event is open to NWC students and area residents. Refreshments will be provided.

Admission is free, although donations will be accepted throughout the evening to benefit Wyoming Equality, an organization supporting gay straight alliances and equality legislation in Wyoming.
