The Queer-Straight Alliance at Montana State University will host "Revolution," an annual drag show performance for charity, at 9 p.m. Saturday, March 28, in MSU's SUB Ballrooms.

A portion of the event's proceeds will benefit AIDS Outreach, a new, local non-profit. Canned food will also be collected at the door for the Gallatin Valley Food Bank. Tickets will be available at the door for $8, or $6 with a canned food donation. Doors will open at 8:30 p.m.

This is the QSA's second annual show at MSU, and it is expected to feature more than 10 local male and female impersonators who will be performing in a variety of individual and group arrangements. Last year's show raised more than $700 and more than 400 items of canned food for the Gallatin Valley Food Bank. More than 300 people were in attendance at that show.

AIDS Outreach is a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting those infected and affected by HIV and providing education to reduce new infections in the Bozeman community. AIDS Outreach provides monthly support groups for infected individuals that are facilitated by a licensed psychiatrist. This spring, AIDS Outreach will also begin hosting monthly potlucks for infected individuals and their families.

Queer-Straight Alliance (QSA) is MSU's and Bozeman's first lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning advocacy organization. QSA seeks awareness and acceptance of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, questioning, and allied community at MSU and in the Gallatin Valley.
