The sequined gloves are coming off – By Morgan Gard

For Michael Balderas, it began last year, right after the drag show ended. That’s when he decided he wanted to do the Gay, Bisexual, Lesbian and Transsexual Coalition (GBLTC) drag show again this year, but he wanted to compete instead of perform.

“I’m a brother of Delta Lambda Phi National Social Fraternity,” Balderas said, “and we have a history of performing in the drag show. Last year, DLP didn’t officially compete, but we did ‘There, Right There,’ from Legally Blond: The Musical. I was Elle Woods.”
