Posted 03/16/18

Drag Show 2018 posterThe Gay Straight Alliance at Fitchburg State University will present the 13th annual drag show at 7 p.m. Thursday, April 5, building awareness and raising funds for the university’s new LGTBQ student scholarship.

The “Galactic Goddesses” Annual Drag show will be held at the Athletics and Recreation Center, 130 North St., Fitchburg.

This year’s program will feature dancing and cabaret-style performances by 10 stage performers including Lady Sabrina, Mizery, Miss Kris, Vita Summers, Destiny, Roxy Brooks, G Licious G, new comer Onyx, with Raquel Blake to be the Mistress of Ceremonies for the evening. DJ Scotty P will spin the tunes for the show.  Special guest appearances by the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence will also grace the stage.

Tickets are $5 for Fitchburg State students and $10 for the public. Tickets can be purchased at the information desk in Hammond Hall, 160 Pearl St.

Associate Director of Student Development Shane Franzen has supervised the development of the show since its inception on campus.

“This Drag Show is an important part of the fabric of LGBTQ Life at Fitchburg State and her surrounding communities,” Franzen said. “It shows that Fitchburg State does not discriminate based on sexual orientation, color, race, or identity. It solidifies the openness of the faculty, staff and community, but most importantly, the students.

“With the changing climate of the country, it is now more important than ever to show off our culture. The students of GSA work tirelessly over many months to put the show together. It is a privilege to be their advisor, and an honor to watch them grow and flourish as active citizens of the LGBTQ+ Community and to share who they are to all.”
