Put together by the theatre club, LGBT Student Association, and Dixie State University Student Association, this showis set to be held on April 6 at 7:30 p.m. Seven contestants are set to perform, said Cassandra Smith, president of the theatre club. The event will also feature two professional queens as a collaboration between LGBTSA and Southern Pride. Sam Kuo, a freshman sociology major from Baltimore, and president of LGBTSA, said he hopes the show helps project DSU as a more inclusive and accepting school.

While St. George, specifically Southern Pride, has put on drag shows before, this is the first DSU exclusive show. Contestants will have the opportunity to dress in drag, wear full drag makeup and perform to their choice of song.
