Burlington High School in Vermont hosted a “drag ball” during Friday night’s football game halftime. Put on by the school’s Gender-Sexuality Alliance (GSA) club, the show featured students and teachers dressed in drag attire.
About thirty participants, most of them male, strutted the track in a mixture of gowns, dresses, high-heeled boots, feather boas, colorful wigs and other accessories with techno music playing in the background. Students in the stands, decked out in rainbow attire, cheered them on.
Andrew LeValley, an English teacher and advisor to the GSA club, said the school’s principal and athletic director were “on board excitedly,” according to Seven Days. Tom Flanagan, the Burlington superintendent, joined in wearing a rainbow cape and holding a rainbow flag, Seven Days reported.
