Film Series: Paris is Burning

1990. USA. Dir: Jennie Livingston. With Dorian Corey. Documentary. 71 min.


This iconic celebration of queerness chronicles the underground Harlem ball culture of the late 80s, showcasing the vibrant personalities of its predominantly Black and Latinx participants. The historical aesthetics of drag and the minority origins of cultural concepts such as voguing and throwing shade are brought to light in potent critique of oppression.

The Halloween party of the year is COMING SOON, and so is your chance to rock the runway:

We’re looking for drag performers who are interested in walking for a fashion show and performing one musical number. It can be lip-syncing to a song, dancing, singing live, or whatever. We want someone who is going to bring their “A” game and really work the runway. Those selected to be in the show will get free admission. 

Contact skershaw[at]wesleyan[dot]edu if you wish to perform!

And keep an eye out for ticket sales– tickets will be available through paypal and at Usdan starting tomorrow.

The prolific Izzy Rode ’14 tellz uz:

You, dear, deserve a night of reclamation.
A break from the hetero social life.
A night of demolishing those boxes society keeps trying to throw you
into.
A night of partying among friends.

BELLIG Info Session

rupaul-drag-race

From the forever fab dahhhhhling Johnny Lazebnik ’16:

BELLIG. Is it an acronym? No. It’s in all caps, but that’s just because we’re glamazons.

BELLIG is short for “belligerent,” which is exactly what we were when we found out that there was no pre-existing group for students to experiment with the beautiful, mahhhhvelous art of drag.

Drag refers to the glorious extravaganza when individuals, typically men, genderbend. BELLIG is going to be a flurry of sick’ning false lashes, heels, and a few skirts so short you wouldn’t let your own daughter go out in them.

It’s fine. Because we’ll look fishier in them than any girl ever could. Except possibly Madonna, Our Lord and Savior, Hallowed Be Her Fake English Accent.

SO COME TO THE FIRST EVER BELLIG MEETING. NO STRINGS ATTACHED. BRING NOTHING BUT YOURSELF AND GET READY TO W.E.R.Q.

This kiki will be mahhhhhhvelous, hunty.

Date: Tomorrow, February 3rd
Time: 3:30pm
Place: Usdan MPR
Facebook: Can we pretty please have a kiki?

Be a Drag Queen/King for Bend it at Beckham!
