Crimson & Queens 2022!

Crimson & Queens is an annual drag show at the University of Oklahoma. The show provides a platform for OU students and other local performers to showcase their art and increase visibility for the local LGBTQ+ community. In addition to local talent, Crimson & Queens features internationally-recognized drag queens, all of whom have gained considerable fame from their appearances on the Emmy Award-winning television show RuPaul’s Drag Race.

Crimson & Queens has quickly become the largest annual drag show in Oklahoma, one of the largest collegiate drag shows in the US, and one of OU’s most popular events. After only four years, Crimson & Queens has already to begun to create a long-lasting legacy that will continue to build an affirming and welcoming environment for the campus community.

Thanks to drag gaining mainstream popularity in recent years, our first two shows have had just over 400 and 700+ attendees, respectively. Last year, we had 1100+ people streaming our virtual drag show. This year we expect an even bigger turnout. Given the incredible response we’ve received, the show is being transitioned to McCasland Field House - a venue that holds approximately 3,500 people - to accommodate the still growing audience.
