Grays Harbor College’s Gay Straight Alliance presents the third annual “Night at the Drag Show” on Friday, February 8, on the College campus in Aberdeen. The drag show begins at 7 p.m; doors open at 6:30.
Last year, a rowdy, energetic crowd of more than 300 enjoyed the second “Night at the Drag Show” at Grays Harbor College. The show raised $2,000 for scholarships awarded through the Grays Harbor College Foundation.
“When we did the drag show a few years ago we didn’t know what we would get from the community. The amount of people at the past two events was overwhelming,” said Jen Gillies-Alvarez, one of the advisors for the campus club. “The students in the club were so overcome with emotions a few cried when they saw all the faces in the crowd. I hope even more people will come this year, and keep the scholarship going.”
Gillies-Alvarez anticipates more than 20 acts will be performing, featuring lip-synching to dramatic and popular songs by performers dressed in opposite gendered clothing. VIP seating is $15, and general admission is only $5. Tickets are available by calling 360-538-4155, online at Brown Paper Tickets, or through the GHC GSA Facebook page. Tickets will also be available at the door.
The Gay Straight Alliance at Grays Harbor College is dedicated to improving awareness of gay, lesbian, transgendered, and bisexual people to create a safe environment for all Grays Harbor College students. The group provides peer emotional and moral support, as well as promoting and providing safe spaces. The club also participates in a variety of campus and community events throughout the year.
