Last week on Saturday Feb. 4 the pub hosted the Caravan of Glam, a traveling drag show group. This week we asked students, how do you feel about these sorts of performances on campus?

“I think they’re awesome, I think they offer students perspectives that they may not have from where they come from. They get to see entertainment that’s national entertainment. These people have been on multiple shows. One of the new performers actually was on American Idol and the others were on America’s Got Talent so the Pub does a great job bringing world class talent to Fairbanks which is sometimes starving for things to do. They offer people to see that things like gender aren’t just male and female and it can expand a whole spectrum of what gender means and what entertainment can be too, they sing they dance, they perform.” -Troy Poulsen, communications and dispute resolution, graduate student Photo credit: Maximilian Erickson

“I don’t really go to the pub cause its doesn’t really follow my religious beliefs. I don’t really drink, so I’m not really for it as far as myself but if other people want to do that I think that’s their business, so that’s up to them.” -Merry Verhagen, elementary education, junior Photo credit: Maximilian Erickson
