As I was walking out of Davis Library, I turned to notice a flyer. At first, I was unaware of what in tarnation it was regarding, however, upon closer examination I realized it was a photograph of a drag-show queen naked from the chest up. It was an advertisement for GBLT-SA’s (the Gay, Lesbian, Bi, Transgender-Straight Alliance) drag show coming up this spring. The ever popular “Arabia Night Addams” drag show queen? glared at me with longing eyes fixed under a wig the size of Kansas. Her/his breast hung out under his arm, horrifyingly explicit.
In the school year of 2007-2008 (the closest year on record I can find), GLBT-SA recieved a total of $21, 066.70 of your student fees. Yes, you read correctly, that was over twenty thousand dollars. Of that over twenty thousand, about $840 went to the Fall Drag Show that year (according to their own budget discription) part of which went to the offensively named group, “The Cuntry Kings;” a troup of “performers.” To be fair, however, I have heard around that as of late GBLT-SA is out of cash or at least out of student fee funding at least for now (You’d think they could have stretched out that 20 grand for about 10 years or so).
Not that I blame GLBT-SA for getting the money, the truth is congress doesn’t have much choice regarding whether the money given to organizations are wasted on such things as strippers or drag show “professionals.”
Below is the poster that I was refering to and that ought to make you plenty sorry for the culture you live in.
