“Thursday’s a Drag” teaches tolerance through performance

For the second year in a row, Southern Oregon University’s Queer Resource Center will put on “Thursday’s a Drag,” this Thursday in the Diversions nightclub in the basement of the Stevenson Union at 7 p.m.

The event is open to all, and admission is free. Catering services will provide snacks as well.

According to Toby Stein, QRC staff member, the night’s entertainment will feature a variety of exciting acts, including the “Diamond Divas” Drag Queens, drag kings and more.

The show is not limited to drag performances though. Last year slam poetry took the stage, as well as musicians and various other performances. The event’s popularity seems to have doubled since last year, and the QRC expects a full house in attendance this time around.

The show is about “emphasizing any part of gender with performance,” said Stein.

The event is about tolerance and anti-bullying, common themes in most of the events put on by the QRC.

“I would encourage everyone to go,” said Stein. “Everyone should go to a drag show once in their life. We just want everyone to have a good time.”
