City College hosted the first Lesbian Gay Bisexual and Transsexual Los Rios District Conference. Following the conference, members of the City College Queer Straight Alliance club organized ‘Fabulosity in Red,’ a talent show featuring students from the district’s colleges.
QSA Club adviser Natascha Storms said the show has been anticipated by the club’s members since the beginning of the fall semester.
“A lot of [queer] students find their self expression in art, especially in high school when it’s not really okay to be out,” Storms said.
