Got plans this Valentine’s Day? If not, Fanshawe has a night planned for dancing performances, comedy and all around night of fun.

The Fanshawe Student Union (FSU) will be hosting ProjectBE’s “What a Drag” event on Valentines’ Day (Feb.14) for the fifth year in a row. The show will feature many local drag queens.

ProjectBE Event Productions is an organization that promotes creativity and individuality within the LGBTQ+ community across southwestern Ontario.

The show will include performances by queen Miss Drew and the Instagram queen Kyne (@OnlineKyne). The show will include other local talents.

Kevin Masterson, the FSU’s events and activities manager, said that they FSU wanted to plan a night for everyone to have a good time.

“We figured Valentine’s Day we could do a pub where people try to meet people, or we could just say we’re just going to have fun instead. And that’s what we did,” Masterson said.

According to Masterson, this annual event has been a great success. “We’ve found it very popular with the students. They bring dates or they just go and hangout, you know just watch the show and have a fun time,” Masterson said.

Masterson added that the FSU plans events like this to help with LGBTQ+ representation on campus.

“I know that our programing model here at the student union is we like to do a little bit of everything for everybody. So, we try to program things for basically all our students.” Masterson said. “We try to get everybody represented. This is just another segment of the Fanshawe community.”

The show will be held in The Out Back shack on Valentine’s Day. The event is an all age event with Fanshawe ID, otherwise 19+ if you don’t have your student ID.

Tickets are currently on sale and can be bought for $5 at The Biz booth and The Hub (downtown campus). Tickets will be $10 at the door. Doors will open at 8:00 PM.
