At this time of year most schools have a Winter Formal. School Of The Arts has a Drag Ball. I learned about this when a Drag Queen in flamboyant colors and excessive makeup stormed our classroom, arbitrarily picking me up in the process. Dances aren’t large events at SOTA, and the student government is looking to change that. After what I am sure was a long and arduous process, they decided to stay close to our core values, and start what I predict will become a tradition.
The image, in its absurdity, seems symbolic of SOTA and San Francisco. In Sochi, Russia gay propaganda is illegal, despite it hosting the Olympics: a symbol of worldwide unity. I wonder what they would think of the Drag Queen there.
