    LOUISVILLE, Ky. – The LGBT Center at the University of Louisville is gearing up to host PINK, its annual drag and variety show at 7 p.m. March 29 at PLAY Louisville.

    Tickets to the event are $5 for students with ID (from any school), $15 for general admission and can be purchased at the door. Booth and table reservations can be made via PLAY dance bar here: https://playdancebarboothrental.com/booking/calendar

     

    The annual amateur drag and variety show is UofL’s longest running student-produced event. Proceeds from PINK benefit Shades, UofL’s group for LGBTQ students of color.

     

    “Students direct the show, produce the event, manage backstage, serve as event volunteers and of course, perform,” said Lisa Gunterman, director of the LGBT Center on Belknap campus. “A number of students who participated in PINK in the past went on to work at event companies and some even became professional performers and secured positions in the entertainment industry.”

     PINK offers an opportunity for UofL students, faculty, staff and community members of all ages to celebrate the diversity and culture of our LGBTQ and ally community.

     “PINK is a signature event for the University of Louisville and it is incredible to me that students have kept it going for the past 22 years,” Gunterman said.
