Suicide is a Drag, 2017


Last weekend marked the 6th Annual Suicide is a Drag event, which is meant to serve as a fund raiser for the Cincinnati branch of The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, to help support advocacy, education, research, and support of suicide prevention. At this event, Drag Queens perform for donations, all given to AFSP. The event was previously held at The American Sign Museum, but was relocated to Northern Kentucky University, in order to invite a new audience, allowing for education and spreading awareness.

The 80’s theme event was hosted by Brooklyn Steele-Tate, who also chaired the event with Rusty Lockett. The event was also in connection with the ISQCCBE, NKU LGBTQ Services Office, and The Cincinnati Sisters.

Brooklyn is the queen of picking random people to come strip for money, and this time it happened to be a friend of mine, Alex!
His wife Rachel, only giving a dollar out of the three in her hand.. hmmm.

Having no idea this was coming, he did a pretty great job.
