Throw Down The Purple Boa: U.Mass Drag Show To Benefit QWOC+ Boston

Posted By QWOC+ Boston on May 5th, 2009

Students at U.Mass this year have decided to donate the proceeds of their annual drag show to QWOC+ Boston for QWOC Week!

Wednesday May 6th @ 6PM

U. Mass Campus Center 3rd floor, Ballroom A
100 Morrissey Blvd.
Boston, MA

Part of the money raised during this show will go towards the costs of fliers/informational cards to leave for students on their campuses. We are hoping that we raise enough money to warrant using the remainder of the funds as a decent stipend for a student intern this summer! Please support this event if you are able to TOMORROW! Our students and youth need our support as well.
