On Oct 22., the Pride Network will be sponsoring “Absolutely Drag” in celebration of Gay History Month. Begining at 8 p.m. and located in the May Room, UR will be entertained once again by some of its favorite drag kings and queens. The show will feature performances by many of the crowd favorites – Ambrosia Salad, Pandora Boxx, Ashya Black, Franke Starr, Windz, L.L. Coolay and Clint Taurus.The drag show allows the Pride Network to bring awareness of the Stonewall Riots and Gay History month to UR.”[This show is] our connection back to the Stonewall Riots in NYC in June of 1969,” Pride Network community liason and junior Daniel Chu said. The Stonewall Riots were the response to several “raids” that occurred at gay clubs and bars across the country. These raids brought charges of indecency to those arrested. When police raided the Stonewall Inn, residents of Greenwich resisted police and led protests against the treatment of gays across the country. “At the head were drag queens leading the riot,” Chu said.Many gay and lesbian support groups surfaced after the riots. “Our fall drag show is in Gay History Month as a remembrance [of the riots],” Chu said.Tickets are available in advance at the Common Market – $5 for UR undergrads and $7 for the general public. Tickets will also be sold at the door, but attendance is expected to be high, so Chu encourages tickets to be purchased in advance. Selleck can be reached atbselleck@campustimes.org.
