Drag Queens Help Bring AIDS Quilt To NSU

Posted: Updated:

Thursday night, eight drag queens and a Michael Jackson impersonator from Tulsa will help raise money on the NSU campus.

They are donating their time to bring part of the Memorial AIDS Quilt to campus.

A student organization called Civil Liberties Union, will host a fundraiser at 7pm at the University Center Ballroom.

The quilt will be unveiled in the same ballroom December 1.

Six panels will be on display in Tahlequah and Broken Arrow through December 8.

CLU has sponsored this fundraiser for the past four years to increase awareness about HIV and AIDS.

The Memorial AIDS quilt was founded in 1987. Since then, it's served as a powerful tool to prevent new cases of HIV. It is the largest ongoing community arts project in the world.

Each of the 40,000 panels honors the life of a person lost to AIDS.

Thursday night's event costs $5 for students and $10 for community members.
