A night full of electricity, erotism and extravaganza had the audience buzzing at the Lindenwood University Cultural Center, as drag queen Duchess hosted her second Freak Show on Tuesday.

LU’s Gay-Straight-Alliance sponsored and organized the event, which featured a total of 13 Halloween themed performances. The show consisted of a variety of individual and group acts including both drag queens and kings.

Lindenwood senior Cody Floyd showed his mastery as his counterpart Duchess and led through the evening, while also proving his professionalism during two of his own performances.

Members of the audience supported and cheered on their friends on stage after each song. A group performance to ‘Lady Marmalade” closed off the show and earned a standing ovation from the excited crowd.
