TAHLEQUAH – Attendants at the 11th annual Northeastern State University Drag Show took the show’s theme, “Party Like It’s 1999” to heart on Wednesday evening cheering (and tipping) the seven performers who took stage, which included one Cherokee performer.

The show served as a fundraiser for the Stonewall Equality Alliance, which is a student association under NSU’s diversity program. SEA President and Cherokee Nation citizen Ahyoka Youngdeer said the event was to promote inclusion and equality for all.
