Chapman’s second annual Staches and Lashes Drag Show is lighting up the Student Union stage on April 19, 2013!
Staches and Lashes features three Drag Queens and one Drag King who will take the stage performing some of students’ favorite hits. The highlight of the stage will be a giant ice cream cone that will serve as a throne in this year’s hodgepodge theme of “Thrift Shop.”
Last year saw the inception of the drag show and it was a brilliant success! Audience members recall how excited they were when the performers were on stage. Alexandra Contreras, ’15, noted that “it was such a great atmosphere” inside the Student Union. Nicole Shay, ’14, recalled “It made me want to go to a real drag show which is similar just way more intense.” The audience was able to see what the show was truly about: accepting people as they are no matter their quirks, backgrounds, or interests. Hosted by UPB, QSA, and the CDC, this event is the main attraction of Pride Month, meant to bring awareness to the Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgender community in and around Chapman.
Tickets to this event are FREE but require a reservation. For more information, please visit the Event Facebook Page.
