Drag WU

Drag WU sheds a positive light on the LGBTQIA+ community. Bob the Drag Queen headlines this year’s event. Drag WU is designed to educate the campus about the LGBTQIA+ community and the importance of drag culture. Performers will speak on the pertinent issues facing the community including trans rights, discrimination, and equality for members of the LGBTQIA+ community.

This Small Grant will be used to pay artist fees. Bob the Drag Queen is an American comedian, actor, recording artist, activist, personality, and drag queen. Bob won RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 8 in 2016. Since wrapping RuPaul’s Drag Race, Bob has appeared in film and television projects like High Maintenance, Rough Night, and Tales of the City. He is a host of HBO’s docuseries We’re Here, which follows the queens as they give drag makeovers to small town citizens throughout the USA.
