9. GSA Drag Show
Date, time and place TBA

The GSA Drag Show is put on every year, and before the show even begins, most of the seats are already filled and some people have to be turned away.

The theme of this past year’s show was “Dragtivism,” which was “sort of relevant to what’s going on in the world right now,” said Heather Brown-Hudson about the show.

During each of the performances at the show, money was handed to performers who came and collected it. A total of approximately $640 was raised for Pride St. Charles.
