Calling all kings and queens

Lights, Snapchat cameras, drag queens!

The theatre fraternity Alpha Psi Omega’s annual Drag Show was met with exciting changes for all those who attended this year.

After years of attempting, Bradley’s own LGBT+ alliance group Common Ground was able to partner with Alpha Psi Omega to host the event, bringing together two vibrant communities on campus in a fresh, new way.

Miss Flo NoMo’, a local drag queen, was featured as the guest artist of the night, striking up the jam-packed Hartmann Center audience, dancing and screaming with the kings and queens as she owned the stage in a bejeweled nun’s outfit.

From boy band classics like NSYNC’s “Pop” to Selena Gomez’s wispy and sensual “Hands to Myself,” kings and queens battled it out with characters ranging from a burger-flipping creep to lingerie-clad seductresses. There was something for everyone who needed a laugh, a cheer or just an escape from the overwhelming stresses the month of April brings.

Donations from the show were given to the Central Illinois Friends of People with AIDS organization, raising over $700.

In a world where money can be so fickle, you can never go wrong investing in the star power and glamour that is drag.
