Looks Like That 'Gender Studies' Class Had the Desired Effect

OSU held its 10th annual "Dragonfly" drag show this week, The O'Colly reports, in which students competed for "best drag queen and drag king. All proceeds from the show supported Freedom Oklahoma, an organization that lobbies on behalf of the state's LGBT community."
Papa Molly, a drag king and political science major, said she thinks of the event as a platform as well. It's not only to showcase her personality but to also make a statement about what's considered masculine and what's feminine. "Last semester, I took a gender studies class and it totally rocked my world," said Molly, also known as Aeryanna.
Apparently these shows aren't for the faint of heart. As OSU noted regarding the 2014 performance held in the Wes Watkins Center, "This show is adult in nature and is not recommended for those under the age of 18. Parental guidance is suggested."
