The Queers Are Nigh
It wasn't that long ago that the Queer Straight Alliance at the University of New Mexico fought its way into existence. In 2010, after receiving approval from the Student Fee Review Board, the group almost lost funding as UNM sought to trim its budget. Happily, advocates won that battle and went on to host events and speak up for LGBTQ issues on campus. This year, the alliance is hosting "Queerpocalypse: The End is Queer," an amateur drag competition. The spellbinding Shaila Cavalli and Rocco Steele—Miss and Mr. New Mexico Pride—will rouse the crowd, and four budding performers compete for crowns. DJ Nicolatron spins. Admission to the all-ages show is free, but donations are encouraged. "Come ready to fight and dressed to kill," say organizers. For more, go to Facebook.com/UNMQSA. (Marisa Demarco)
