Scores of students and community members alike gathered in Maucker Union on Friday, April 5, to attend the annual Drag Ball for UNI’s Pride Week, hosted by UNI Proud.

The show started a little after 8:00 p.m. and featured several professional and student performers. The Vixen, from season 10 of “RuPaul’s Drag Race,” was a special guest at the event.

The Vixen joined fellow performer Spjork as a host, providing some comedic commentary during transisitons between acts.

The audience was encouraged to give money to the performers, who would not only weave the money exchange seamlessly into their performance, but would even dance with the benefactor prior to making their way across the stage to another awaiting donor.

The proceeds from the show would go towards sending children to Iowa’s Pride Camp, which takes place in Des Moines, from July 15-19. More information about Pride Camp registration can be found on safeschoolsacademy.org.
