The Fire Ball
The Fire Ball is UW-Eau Claire's drag extravaganza! Each year in the Spring, the Ojibwe Grand Ballroom plays host to local and national drag performers who turn it out for packed audiences. This past year, Latrice Royale from RuPaul's Drag Race brought the house down with her fabulous performances and personal connection (she's a former resident!) to the city of Eau Claire! She was complemented by several amazing drag queens and drag kings who were, in one word, FIERCE!
The Fire Ball offers numerous opportunities for students to get involved, either behind the scenes or as performers in the actual production. Do you want to be a Fire Ball Dancer? A fire/poi spinner? Do you want to take tickets at the door? Help sell merchandise to attendees? Or, do you think you have what it takes to beat your mug (*drag queen vernacular for "put on make-up") and entertain in drag? Whatever your interest, there is an opportunity to get involved!
Importantly, The Fire Ball isn't just another drag show. It is the chief source of funding for the LGBTQA Student Support Fund. 100% of revenue generated from The Fire Ball is used to fund student social justice activism efforts.
