The UWM Drag Show (also known as the “Drag Ball” although not at all a ballroom style show) has been a staple at the University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee for over 15 years. The show has continually ranked as one of the largest drag performances in the Midwest and as one of the largest on-campus events at UWM – even making it to #19 on the UWM Bucket List.

The 2016 show will take place on Saturday, February 27th at 7:30PM, once again at the Milwaukee Theatre. Shuttles will once again be provided to the event beginning at 5:30PM and departing from Sandburg Hall, Cambridge Commons, and the circle drive of the UWM Student Union. Doors will open at 6:00PM.

Tickets are available TODAY for pickup from our center located in the UWM Student Union on the ground level, WG-89.  Stop in to get yours today–please keep in mind there is a limit of two tickets per a person.  You will also be able to pick up tickets the night of the show at the door.

And thank you to all of our fabulous sponsors: UWM Division of Student Affairs, UWM LGBT Resource Center, UWM Student Association, and UWM University Housing. We are also excited to announce our new partnership with Milwaukee Pride this year as they help us empower LGBT+ youth to #LiveProud!

This Year’s Beneficiaries Are…

We are very excited to announce that this year’s tips for performers will be split and donated to Project Q, the youth program at the Milwaukee LGBT Community Center, and Pathfinders Milwaukee, helping LGBT+ homeless youth!  Each organization will also have their own performers performing a special act raising money for their charities, so don’t forget your bills for donating during the show!  In addition, we are collecting donations at the door of the event to go toward our center and offsetting the cost of the show.
