WERKing it at Spelman College — drag fashion show a hit on campus

WERK drag fashion show

Spelman College's Afrekete and Morehouse College's Safe Space program, both serving the LGBT students on their respective campuses, combined forces for the second annual WERK, a drag fashion show featuring men and women, as part of Spelman's second annual Pride Week.

More than 100 people packed into the Cosby Lobby Friday, Nov. 12, on Spelman's campus for spoken word, hip hop and, of course, the main event — a drag fashion.

Last year, for Spelman's first Pride Week, the college was able to get the OK for a drag show to be held on campus — the first time an historically black college has held a drag show as part of official campus programming.
