Alliance held its weekly meeting at 7 p.m.  Sunday in the Curris Center with discussion about the annual Drag Show.

The annual Drag Show will be March 1 in the Curris Center. The theme and time will be discussed at a later meeting.

Alliance is also participating in work days on March 3 and April 7 where they clean the streets of Calloway County. Each member participating will earn 6 dollars a person an hour. The money will help the Alliance pay for various activities they put on throughout the semester.

Alliance President Will Heath said the group needs to think about programs that are getting weaker and revamp them and/or think of new events.

The group is planning a celebrity drag race for April 3 at 5 p.m. The event will involve sorority and fraternity members racing around the track of Racer Arena in high heels.

Safe Schools Advocacy Summit (SSAS) Applications are due by noon on Monday. Students who are chosen participate in a free four day conference focused on bullying and harassment. SSAS will be held March 24 through 27 in Washington, D.C. The program is sponsored by the gay, lesbian, straight education network.

The meeting closed with general assembly members filling drag show job positions.
