It’s that time of year again to celebrate the LGBTQIA+ community, and CWU is set to host a week’s worth of events for CWU Pride Week Monday, May 25 through Friday, May 29. Pride is a nationally recognized movement in celebration of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, asexual and ally culture with annual events scheduled in cities and communities across the globe. A wide range of events are planned at CWU, from professional lectures to drag shows.
One distinguished event is the Professional Drag Show, complete with a live musical performance by the award winning CWU a capella group Fantastic Forte Friday, May 29 at 7 p.m. in the Student Union and Recreation Center (SURC) Ballroom. Hosted by well-known drag performers Aquasha DeLusty and Jenuwine Beauté, this free show is set to close out Pride Week in style.
In addition to the drag show, a “Queen Fling” is scheduled following the performance, which includes an all-inclusive, all-ages dance at the Elmira in downtown Ellensburg at 117 E 4th Ave. Free transportation from the SURC to the Elmira will be provided by the CWU Access, Belonging, Learning and Equality (ABLE) club.
