NMSU’s LGBT+ Program to Host Drag Show Tuesday

New Mexico State University’s LGBT+ program will be hosting its Pride Season drag show this week.

The show, set for at 7 p.m. Tuesday, March 27 in the Corbett Center ballroom, is the biggest event hosted by the program and will feature both nationally and locally known performers.

Performers will include Cherry Poppins and Eva Alicia, who are both popular pageant queens and perform nationally; Lady Shug, the former Miss Gay New Mexico Pride for 2016; and Preston Stylez, a local king.

Zooey Pook, director of NMSU’s LGBT+ Programs, said that by continuously putting on their program’s drag show they are creating a comfortable and welcoming place for the people.

“We’ve seen our students, as well as parents and young LGBT+ people in the community come to these events and it’s their first time being around LGBT+ culture and it unites them, and makes them feel included, and happy, and it’s emotional and it’s meaningful and I couldn’t be happier to use my background as someone who booked and organized concerts in the Midwest to give them something special here in Las Cruces,” said Pook.

Pook said pride season is important to be able to show the inclusive community found among the university.

“The goal of pride season is to use public programming to promote diversity and inclusion and to further the success of all students, faculty and staff at NMSU,” said Pook.

The drag show is free and open to anyone in the public. For more information, contact the LGBT+ Programs at 575-646-7031. Pride season events are made possible by funding from ASNMSU.
