Celebrating its 20th anniversary, people of all races, ages and sexual orientations came together to celebrate diversity and love during PINK, U of L LGBT Center’s drag show.

The drag show included performances from professionals, students and community members – some performing for the first time.

“Every year, PINK is a powerful showing of the support that people at U of L, whether it be the students faculty or staff, have for the LGBT community,” program coordinator Katy Garrison said. “It is a chance for students to express themselves and feel supported through that journey.”

The show has grown tremendously over its 20-year tenure – the first show only had 40 in attendance.

U of L is a top-16 school for LGBT inclusion. The LGBT center strives “to strengthen and sustain an inclusive campus community at U of L, one that welcomes people of all sexual orientations, gender identities and gender expressions through support, educational resources and advocacy.”
