Drag show to appear again for Pride Week
Appearance by Shangela from RuPaul's Drag Race
The second annual Drag Rave is set to return on March 23 in celebration of Pride Week, with help from RamsPlus, Kappa Delta Rho and the University Center Program Council.
"Pride Week is important to me because there is a lack of representation of the LGBT community here at Angelo State and Pride Week shows that Angelo State does have an LGBT community here, we are active and we are accepted," RamsPlus President Ashley Douglass said.
A major part of Pride Week last year was the Drag Rave, a night set aside for drag queens out of the Austin/San Antonio areas to strut their stuff for the community in the C.J. Davidson Conference Center.
The Drag Rave is meant to be a fun experience for students as they get to participate in something different that they may not have had the chance to see.
However, it is also meant to teach and inform students about a way of life they may have been completely unaware of before. In this case, it would be the transgender community of the United States.
"The LGBT community has come so far to have acceptance and tolerance," Douglass said.
This week is to show that and improve it by educating those who are unaware of the LGBT community and their issues.
This will also be KDR’s first year participating in this event.
"I believe that one of the best aspects of doing this event is, for the strict fact that it allows me to branch out and expand my knowledge on something that I have no past experience on." Jordan Hamrick, a member of KDR said. "[One] of our sayings in KDR is do the service of mankind not to be noticed but because it is the right thing to do, and I think I speak for all of our members when participating, that we intend on doing what we believe can make a change or impact someone’s life."
Students who went last year showered it with praise as an incredibly fun experience. They also said it is completely different from any of the other available entertainment venues in San Angelo.
The Drag Rave will be on March 23, starting at 7:00 p.m. It will be at the University Center in the C. J. Davidson Conference Center. Admission is free and all students of ASU are welcome to come and watch.
