SC4’s Gay Straight Alliance (GSA) 4th annual drag show drew the attendance of students and community members on Wed., April 2.
Performers drove from places as far as Grand Rapids, enduring traffic backups to support a local charity.

Proceeds from the GSA drag show went to benefit Port of Hopes; a local drop in center for people with mental illnesses.
Presale tickets were sold for three dollars, and five at the door. Including the presale, tickets sold at the door, and tips given to performers, the benefit raised $900.
According to GSA president Amber Lee, the goal of the event went far beyond monetary gain.
“We want to help people gain a new perception of the LGBT community. It’s about creating and promoting unity.” Lee said.
