Every year, UNI Proud holds a drag show to showcase the talented members of their group and raise money for charity.
Once a year, every seat, ledge and open spot on the floor is taken in the University of Northern Iowa's Maucker Union — no, not for an educational lecture or speaker, but for something a little more… glittery.
Red lipstick and size 11 heels filled the room last night as UNI Proud hosted their annual drag show, and I’ve gotta give the performers props — I don’t even know if I could walk in 5-inch heels, let alone dance in them. (Well, without falling off the stage, that is.)
The night was full of excitement, and for a good cause. The performers were not only showing students at UNI they have nothing to hide with this year’s theme, “Transparency,” but were raising money for a great cause while doing so. Every crinkled dollar tucked into a bra or taken out of a donator’s mouth went toward Community Aids Assistance Project (CAPP), a nonprofit group in Northeast Iowa.
