Associate Director of Student Development Shane Franzen has supervised the development of the show since its inception.
This years drag show will pay homage to the struggles of the past that have brought drag into our homes, he said. Women such as Lottie and Crystal LaBeija were pioneers who became mothers of the houses that formed communities of refuge for the LGBTQ youth in the last 60s. These families became the foundation of the ball culture and underground masquerades that allowed the LGBTQ culture to really be who they wanted to be without fear of judgment. The students of Fitchburg States Gay Straight Alliance have also created an accepting culture with one of the most anticipated and highly attended events that the university has to offer. We are also pleased to have this event be a part of the University's 125th Quasquicentennial Celebrations
