“What-A-Drag! features
people coming, mostly extravagantly, as a impression conflicting of their gender
identity,” Clark said.

 

“We’re
proud to consistently have newcomers to drag onstage alongside professionals
from Auburn and around a state.” 

Clark pronounced there’s a accumulation of talent during a fundraiser.

“They sing, dance and mouth sync
to songs of their choice in a accumulation of styles. either it’s fast-paced and
flashy, lightsome and stupid or artistic and mesmerizing,” Clark said.

Planning
for this year’s eventuality began in a commencement of January, Clark said.

A cabinet of fourteen
volunteers shaped during a start of Feb and proceeded to work on putting together this year’s event. 

Members of Spectrum voted to present all of
this year’s deduction to Magic City Acceptance Center, a Birmingham organization
for LGBTQ+ girl that coordinates a accumulation of programs and recognition campaigns. 

The Magic City Acceptance Center is an associate module of Birmingham Aids
Outreach that provides services for gender, passionate and regretful minorities of
Alabama for over 30 years.

Spectrum Director of
Event Planning Traven Le’Nard pronounced a organization wanted to do something opposite this year by
giving a uncover a theme: “Cirque du Spectre,”or the Circus of Spectrum. 

“Since giving it a theme, the volunteers have
overhauled What-A-Drag! 2017 into a entirely illusory playground that we can’t wait
for everybody to see,” Clark said. “Spectrum hopes to lift ceiling of $1,500
for MCAC by what is looking to be the many sparkling uncover yet.”
