Campus Queen

Destination: Providence, Rhode Island.  Mission: Emcee the annual drag pageant sponsored by Brown University and Rhode Island School of Design a.k.a. RISD.

Little did I realize that the contestants would be so fierce, with many of the queens high-kicking to current dance hits in skin-tight leotards!

On- and off-stage, everyone was sweet, and camaraderie reigned!


With co-host Murray Hill and Aida of Brown's Queer Student Association, who arranged for us to be there. Thanks, Aida!


On stage: Odyoncé, Affandi and Vanity.


Last year's winner, gloriously goofy Nef-ro-titie.


Posing in the girl's room—Naomi Scandal.


Forsooth! It's hilariously wacky group act Dungeons and Drag.


And the winner is... Odyoncé! She even brought her own queen-size scepter!


Proceeds went to the transgender advocacy organzation Lifelines Rhode Island.   A fun and charitable event!
