The Queer Straight Alliance of Montana State University will hold its Fifth annual Revolution Charity Drag Ball on April 21. Proceeds from this event will be donated to local charities including BridgerCare, Montana Pride Network and the Pride Foundation Montana Scholarship Fund to help encourage the awareness for equal rights among everyone in the Bozeman community.
The QSAMSU, a student run organization founded in 1978, is comprised of individuals who share the belief that lesbian, bisexual, gay and transgender people are equal members within the community. This association is dedicated to fostering education, empowering action and providing awareness to the people of Bozeman.
QSA hosts weekly meetings every Monday at 7 p.m. held in either room 233 or 168 at the MSU Strand Union Building. The organization also sponsors numerous events in Bozeman and throughout the state during the year including the upcoming drag show and Rainbow Ball occurring on April 14.
Other events hosted by QSAMSU include lectures, awareness videos, pageants and numerous balls to help maintain the community involvement dedicated to this cause.
Many of these events benefit local charities, with profits from the event supporting a variety of organizations. Anyone unable to attend an event but still wishing to make a donation can do so through the QAS website.
