YORK College of Pennsylvania hosted a drag queen show on March 19 for the first time in a couple of years. The show included star headliner: Silky Nutmeg Ganache from RuPauls’ “Drag Race” and local queens: Charlize Angelz (who is a YCP alumnus), Sarabesque, Alizee LaCreame and YCP’s very own student queen, Ambrosia Quiantrelle, along with YCP’s Dance Excel team.

If students wished to participate in the show, they were asked to wear glow sticks around their necks to let the performers know that it was okay to interact with them, otherwise they would know not to interact with them.

Roughly around 50 students have shown up to the show and more than half had glow sticks around their necks.

The show opened up with Silky Nutmeg Ganache, who is from Season 11 of RuPaul’s “Drag Race.” Where she performed to songs like “Boys” by Lizzo and Whitney Houston’s “I Will Always Love You.”

There was some playful banter between Silky and some audience members, such as a worm dance off between two audience members and some quick-witted jokes as well.

It wasn’t long until Silky introduced the next performer.

Up next was local queen Alizee LaCreame, who performed to a Nick Fultz Wepa mix remix. Where the audience were cheering and clapping and giving out money to the performer.

Sarabesque was next up on the list, where she then performed a seven-minute performance to a strip club mix.

Ambrosia Quaintrelle was next, and they performed to P!nks Blow Me (One Last Kiss) and The Truth About Love.  And lastly, Charlize Angels performed to their very own personal mixtape that they had put together.

After all the queens were done performing, YCP’s Dance Excel dance team performed. There were some technical difficulties happening at first, but it was quickly taken care of and Silky Nutmeg Ganache kept the crowd entertained in the meantime.

After the dance team performed, all the queens came back and did one more performance, each in different costumes.

At the very end of the show, audience members got the chance to ask Silky Nutmeg Ganache any questions that they had.

One student asked what Silky had to say to students who are part of the LGBT+ community that is having a hard time coming out

“Sometimes the courage is just patience, please wait to be patient,” Silky said.
