Draggieland 2024 Donations
$0.01 / unit
Howdy! Thank you for your interest in donating to Draggieland 2024! This year, the Queer Empowerment Council, a newly formed council of LGBTQIA+ student organizations at Texas A&M, is charged with putting on Draggieland 2024. A glamorous, spectacular, more magical show is in the works! We would not be able to do it without your support!
Earlier this year, Senate Bill 17 was passed in the Texas legislature, targeting diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives and offices in public universities across Texas. As a consequence of this, the beloved Texas A&M University Pride Center is undergoing a rebrand to the ''Student Life Center" by January. These changes also include restrictions on the type of events the center may host, placing the burden on the Queer Empowerment Council to fundraise and organize many other events formerly handled by the Pride Center, including Lavender Graduation, a separate, affirming graduation ceremony for LGBTQIA+ students, the Coming Out Monologues, an event where participants told their coming-out story to an audience, and the Pride Mentors, a mentorship program that focuses on connecting LGBTQIA+ students and community members. We thank you for your contributions because your donations will also directly support the continuation of these traditions and more as the Queer Empowerment Council continues to become a better resource for queer students and community members at Texas A&M and the greater Bryan-College Station area.
Please note that this platform supports donations up to $249 due to restrictions on credit card donations for Texas A&M student organizations. Larger donations can be taken through checks addressed to the following:
Queer Empowerment Council (942410)
