     The Equality Alliance and LGBTQA Resource Center presented the drag show in the Kehr Union Ballroom on Thursday, Oct. 19. The show was open to the public with $1 admission. All proceeds raised were donated to Hurricane Harvey Relief Funds. The event was hosted by Trixy Valentine who was introduced by Malik Muhammad, Coordinator of Sexual and Gender Diversity, and Gina M. Rodriguez, President of the BU Equality Alliance and Representative for the LGBTQA Resource Center.

     “Just for everyone’s information, I want to make it clear that there is a difference between doing drag and being transgender, those are two different things,” said Muhammad. “People do drag for fun, to express themselves and to dress up but that does not automatically mean that you are trans.”
The show began with an amazing opening act by “Kid Androgyny” and the act was called “Queens of Rap Mix.” The audience was throwing dollars to the performer as he was dancing his heart out to Beyonce’s “Get me Bodied.”

     “I have been doing drag since I was three because of my mom. I use to try on her wigs and clothes and I enjoyed it,” said Dreland Goor (Kid Androgyny). “I can be myself and I have fun doing it.” Goor  will be back and performing for the next drag show in Spring 2018.

     The event had two acts with an intermission in between and throughout the night each performer was giving the audience a show worth watching.
Performers included host Trixy Valentine, who danced to “Boots” by Ke$ha, Vera Ryte with “I will survive” by Gloria Gaynor, Tito F Valentine with “Bodak Yellow” by Cardi B and many more.
