CLC Drag Show Supports Rainbow Coalition

I was very unaware of what went into drag and being able to express myself with like minded people, I was able to learn more about myself as a person and…learn more about my identity. And it was through drag that I was able to find myself and find my gender that fits best with me and find the best way to express myself- in and out of drag. – Alex Pfannenstein/Dakota Hunter

Central Lakes College is hosting a drag show fundraiser supporting its Rainbow Coalition at the outdoor campus theater at 6pm tonight.  Alex Pfannenstein, also known as Dakota Hunter, is a President of the Saint Cloud State University Drag Troupe and will be performing at the event.   They joined the morning show to discuss the event, how the Rainbow Coalition serves people and how drag has positively impacted their life.

It's a very inclusive way to bring people in from various, different cultures and backgrounds and allow them to experience just pure art and pure expression of gender and identity. – Alex Pfannenstein/Dakota Hunter

Stream the event on the https://youtu.be/gKJANLR0cxQ">CLC Youtube page at 6pm!
