Great Entertainment

Seven amatuer acts brought the house down during the 10th annual Queer Student Union (QSU) Drag Show, a fund raiser for the groups scholarship. The show was in the Joe Theater on October 17.


Thank you for your support of therenogaypage. The plan now is to be a single page published as the page fills with events and activities in the community.


   October 16 the color of the day was purple. On the rainbow flag it represents  Spirit (of the Community) and was chosen by Canadian teenage Brittany McMillian in 2010 to take a stand against bullying.

    Faculty, staff and students at TMCC this year took a stand against bullying.

Nope not Barney...

"You can't make any money here," one drag queen said. "Doing drag isn't cheap. It is hard to do drag get makeup, dresses wigs jewlry etc when everyone in this town says we can;t pay you its a benefit."

     The statement is true drag queens used to get to keep the tips they received but today, tips are all donated to whatever the cause happens to be.

     Drag Queens in New York City created the modern day GLBT Rights movement when they had had enough of being harassed by law enforcement and rioted at the Stonewall Inn in June 1969.

          Full story coming soon in therenogaypage.

      Reno used to be a big drag queen town when the casino cabarets and main showrooms had nightly shows and lots of entertainers.  Reno also had several drag bars where shows sometimes were even impromptu. Today no drag bar, less than a handful of drag queens, and far and few shows have changed the community.


Where have all the drag queens gone?
