Spectrum’s “Come to the Drag-Easy!” show gave students a chance to expression themselves in a safe and creative environment both on stage and off.   

Five student performers shared the stage at the Bi-Annual Drag Show Tuesday night in a friendly competition while raising money for D&S Community Service, a local organization that provides support for adults with developmental disabilities. 

The drag show is a growing tradition on the Morehead State University campus as a means of giving back and serving as an outlet for the LGBT community. 

Being part of the LBGT community for me really just means looking at your roots; Drag is within those roots, said Dan Thacker, a freshman history major and winner of Faux King. 

The show garnered the attention of a wide variety of people in its audience from first time goers and performers to the more experienced crowd. This mixed audience speaks volumes to the goal of the showinclusion.  

The show is important because it supports diversity, people expressing themselves and people finding themselves,” said Kirstin Baum, Vice President of Spectrum. 

Co-host Georgia Peach returned for a fourth semester to provide the students of MSU with jaw-dropping performances, laughter and support.  

Drag is an art form to be celebrated and sharing that within the community helps to empower those of us that may still be struggling with our identities,” said Georgia Peach. 

The winners of the night, who most thoroughly represented the art form, include Edgar Allen Ho as Faux King, Leon Goldsworthy as Drag King and Lizzy G as Faux Queen and best-in-show.
