by Christi Mathis

CARBONDALE, Ill. -- The popular annual fall drag show comes to Southern Illinois University Carbondale on Nov. 12.

The Saluki Rainbow Network and Student Center Special Programs and Center Events (SPACE) are hosting the show at the Student Center Ballrooms. The doors open at 7 p.m. and the show starts promptly at 8 p.m. Admission is $5.

The event features entertaining performances by Southern Illinois drag queens and kings including popular favorites Blanche DuBois and Kara Belle. Audience members can join in the fun too. The brave souls who would like to participate can sign up for the suicide drag. One male and one female volunteer will go backstage for costuming and makeup and then perform together on stage. Organizers proclaim the show is most definitely, a “different set of drag.”
