Gonzaga University Promoted 'Drag' Event in Email to Faculty and Staff

GonzagaA Gonzaga University student group called "HERO" put on a series of events on campus recently including "DRAG tabling" and a "bisexuality panel," according to an email notice posted on the Gonzaga website.

HERO, according to its page on Gonzaga's website, "is a gay-straight alliance group headquartered at Gonzaga University in Spokane, Washington."

The "DRAG tabling" and other events were held in the week leading up to the "Day of Silence" on April 11, a note about the events in the Gonzaga Morning Mail "Faculty and Staff Edition" said.  A Gonzaga employee took a video of the drag table, which appeared to be set up adjacent to young girls selling Girl Scout cookies.

Events also included a showing of Sister Outsider Poetry, a panel on bisexuality, "LGTBQA" trivia, poetry, monologues, and a prayer vigil.

Earlier this month, a group of alumni from University of San Diego made public a letter from the Vatican's Congregation for Catholic Education responding to a complaint about a drag show at the Catholic university.

The letter from the Congregation stated, "in view of the gravity of the case, it is worth mentioning that in light of the show and the scandal it caused, this congregation intends to act through administrative channels to the competent ecclesiastical authority in San Diego."

The drag show at University of San Diego reportedly went ahead as planned.
