The lights. The cameras. The drag queens? Tiffin University’s LGBTQ+ organization SPECTRUM hosted their 6th annual Drag Night event on March 27. The night was full of star-studded performances by students and faculty alike. Returning host Deija D owned the stage from the moment she entered the room and did not let up until her final bow.

“Drag night was a culmination of the organization's efforts as well as the love our [actors] have for the event,” said SPECTRUM education coordinator Raymond Goodrum.
SPECTRUM co-president Sami Kramer added, “I think drag night went really well. We had so many amazing people come out to watch and help us set up and tear down. Our performances this year were absolutely amazing. Everyone involved did such a great job.”

Deija D even posted a heartfelt message on her personal Facebook profile stating, “Last night was an absolute dream and the complete reason I do what I do.” She never fails to disappoint as an eccentric host and even said that she cannot wait until next year.
As per tradition, audience applause chose the winners. This year, best group went to none other than Dean of Students Mike Herdlick and Dr. Steven Hurwitz; the best male drag was awarded to Nichole Berry; and the best female drag went to Ian Holbrook.
“With so much support from Tiffin University, drag night continues being bigger and better each year,” said Goodrum.
