Extra! Extra! Read All About It: Lyon Drag Extravaganza
On May 1st, 2023, Lyon College’s SPECTRA Alliance hosted a drag show that was equal parts entertaining, comedy, and fun. With a final total of four performers, the show was a major success. The four performers featured were Moxie Horror, Gerard Slay, Pronouns/In/Bio, and the host/MC Sandra P. First, attendees were educated on some of the history of drag performances with a Kahoot! and then the show formally began. The show featured songs by ABBA, My Chemical Romance, Will Wood, The Cardigans, Dolly Parton and “Look at Me, I’m Sandra Dee” from the musical Grease and a group performance of “Time Warp” from the much beloved Rocky Horror Picture Show (party hats included). Attendees were invited to make donations to local charities that support LGBTQ+ causes in lieu of tipping the performers. Overall, it seems that drag is here to stay and slay at Lyon College.
