Performer Call Out: Drag Show 2018

The annual TQC Drag Show and Cabaret is coming up on Friday, March 30th this year! As usual, we are looking for performers to wow us with their awesome talent and stage presence!

If you perform drag routines, burlesque, acrobatics, or any other performance art such as singing, dancing, acting, or juggling, please get in touch with us! We are always open to having a wide range of performances, and we feel that variety only makes our show even better.

If you are interested in performing, please get in touch with us by March 9th and send us a brief description of your act, any tech requirements, and MP3 files of any music used in your act. Please also include a short biography for our MC to read on stage before your act. (please email trentqueercollective@gmail.com)

This year we invite you all to the one and only "Cirque du So-Gay"! This fantastic circus-themed show is sure to be a wild and fun night you won't want to miss.

Hope to see you there!

Cheers,
The TQC

We also have many exciting events coming up this semester...

One workshop is a throwback to last year - fighting your internalized transphobia/homophobia, the other will be a queer specific sexual health workshop.

Our BIG event is also coming up on March 30th. TQC presents: Cirque du So-Gay!! Our circus themed drag show will wow and amaze you. Don't let that stop you from volunteering though, as every year we cannot make it happen without amazing volunteers!
