Speak for Yourself and the Center for Gender, Sexuality, & Activism come together to bring you Drag Poetry Night on October 26th at 8:00 pm in the GSU Conference Auditorium (775 Comm Ave, 2nd floor).
We’d like to offer performance groups and individuals an opportunity to perform as genders other than their own through poetry, music, dance, improv, etc. in order to explore what we allow ourselves to do when dressed as another gender and what exactly that means for the performing arts community. The proceeds of the event will benefit Boston Alliance of Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, & Transgender Youth.
The night will have set performances by our improv and theater groups, Liquid Fun, Stage Troupe, and BU On Broadway as well as an open mic section for all kinds of performances. If you’d like to perform, sign up at the event or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. (Please contact us beforehand if you’d like any special equipment.)
Liquid Fun will be doing a set in dressed in drag, a great way to warm up for their Halloween Show in BU Central the next night, October 27th.
Stage Troupe will be performing a scene from their upcoming production of Stop Kiss, a touching story about an LGBTQ relationship, going up the next weekend, November 1st – 3rd in the Student Theater at Agganis Arena.
BU On Broadway will be giving us some retro drag, performing the song “A Little Less Conversation” from their production of All Shook Up!, coming November 8th – 10th at 8:00 pm to Tsai Performance Center.
Tickets are $7 or $5 with your BU ID in the GSU Link the week before or at the door.

What are you doing tomorrow night? Hopefully wearing a ridiculous costume and getting drunk in Allston, but before that? Because you should probably be at this event.
