On Friday April 8, 2011, Cornish Student Leadership Council hosted its largest and most attended Drag Show yet at Broadway Performance Hall.

The event opened with a resource fair featuring PFLAG (Parents, Families, and Friends of Lesbians and Gays), Seattle Pride SO&P, Gay City, Recovery Cafe, Planned Parenthood, Seattle Counselors Service, Academy of Burlesque, and more. Before the curtain even rose, the entire audience burst into an impromptu rendition of Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” at the top of their lungs, and the show that followed lost none of that momentum. The evening was hosted by Mademoiselles Anisette Collins (Jerick Hoffer) and Dotty Marquee (Richard Andriessen) who “returned from the dead” (i.e. “returned to Cornish after graduating”) with a posse of “zombie boys” to hand the official drag reign over to new hosts Skyler Kovach and Katharine McKnight.

While the judges conferred, international drag queen legend and local queer personality Mark (Mom) Finley and renowned DJ Skiddle of C89.5 made a guest appearance with an act that explored the basics of mixing and mashing up sounds with how gender identity is made up and performed. 100% of the proceeds from ticket sales and canned food donations were given to the Lambert House, a center for Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender and Questioning young people that empowers youth through the development of leadership, social and life skills.
