UConn ‘Rainbow Center’ Seeks Student Performers for Drag Show

UConn ‘Rainbow Center’ Seeks Student Performers for Drag Show

“What are your pronouns in drag?”

If college students want to participate in this, so be it. At least they’re not children.

Campus Reform reports:

UCONN Rainbow Center is looking for students to perform in its drag show

The University of Connecticut’s Rainbow Center is looking for students to participate in an April 21 drag show. Applications to participate in the annual drag show are due in March and two students will be selected.

The student performer application asks students, “What are your pronouns out of drag?,” “What is your stage name (If you have one)?,” and, “What are your pronouns in drag?”

An Instagram post from the Rainbow Center also advertises a “drag show volunteer interest meeting” to be held on Feb. 21.

“The Rainbow Center… is hosting its annual Drag Show in April! We are seeking volunteers to help set up the show and escort the performers. If interested, come to our interest meeting to learn about the roles and duties for volunteers!” reads the post.

The Rainbow Center’s mission statement declares, “Using an intersectional lens, we center our work on advocating for, and increasing education, access, retention, identity development, and community-building for queer- and trans-spectrum communities.”

Lavender Graduation will also be held by the Center in April, which will “honor UConn graduates (undergraduate and graduate students), faculty, staff and departments for their accomplishments to UConn’s diverse community of gender identities, gender expressions and sexualities.”

One student with STEM major: Want to see this drag show thing?

Other STEM student: Naah. Let’s take in a movie.

I hope some girls show up, to become the Lia Thomases of drag.

Why has it become so important to force the expression of a particular male sexual kink…. Autogynephilia…onto everyone including little children. In addition drag is a grotesque insulting caricature of women #womanface

    That’s why I think the girls should show up to perform. The woke would look hypocritical complaining about them, and if girls can’t be better at being sexy girls than boys are, we need to hang up the human race.

    Well, to be fair, dressing in drag has been a staple of comedy for years. Whether it is Milton Berle and Bob Hope, the Three Stooges, Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon, Flip Wilson, Dame Edna, Robin Williams or even Jamie Farr, drag has been good fun for comedy, including comedy aimed at an audience of children. The difference is that everybody knew that the person in drag was a man, and they remained men, just that for the purpose of the skit or movie or show, they wore a dress. But it didn’t go beyond that.
