Drag Ball is "the social event of the year
" at Oberlin
College. Originally the Lesbutant Ball, organized by lgbt activists, Drag Ball is now a corporate web-cast
venue for the timid heterosexual
s to showcase their bed death
and tepid understanding of non-traditional genders and sex. The Drag Ball is held in the Student Union and is sponsored by Oberlin College. What used to be a celebration of genderfuck
and 'subversive' lifestyles is now a bunch of really drunk straight boys running around in their girlfriends' dresses.
In recent years, members of the queer community at Oberlin have begun to boycott Drag Ball, recognizing it as the commercialized, misappropriated sham that it is.
