Campuses Partner in Pride: Students Host B-Queer Community Event
Brandon, MB – August 10, 2016 – Assiniboine Community College Students’ Association (ACCSA) in partnership with Brandon University’s LGBTTQ* Collective is pleased to present its first ever B-Queer event on Friday, September 16th at Houstons! This student led Pride event features a fundraising supper and a live performance by Coco Montrese, a Las Vegas Drag Queen who will be returning to RuPaul’s Drag Race All-Stars from Season 5.
“We are excited to host an event of this magnitude for the Queer community in Brandon,” says Stefon Irvine, chair of the BU LGBTTQ* Collective. “Our group approached ACCSA with the idea to partner and create an event that will bridge the gap between our students and the Brandon Queer community.”
The evening kicks off with a Bud, Spud & Steak supper from 6:30pm-8:30pm, featuring Drag Queen bingo hosted by Prairie Sky and the Sunshine Gurlz. Tickets are just $25 and include your meal, bingo cards and VIP entrance for the evening show.
The evening performance will feature Coco Montrese and Prairie Sky, who will hit the Houstons stage starting at 11:30pm. For those who only want to attend the social evening, tickets are $5 in advance from the Collective and ACCSA or $10 at the door.
“This is going to be an amazing event like Brandon has never seen!” says Jenna Wade, ACCSA President. “There has never been an opportunity for ACCSA to support our Queer students and the community and this will show we are an inclusive campus.”
Proceeds from the event will go towards future student events.
