According to information obtained by Campus Reform under the Freedom of Information Act, the University of Arkansas spent $11,050 to have six local drag "artists" put on a one-hour zoom performance in March. However, only 38 students attended the virtual event.

Janice Crouse contends that "the very idea that they would use money from students to put on a program like that" was a waste. "They spent five figures to sponsor this event." 

Crouse, Janice (CWA)Crouse argues that progressives use drag queen performers and performances to bring about cultural change.

"You can change the compulsory heterosexuality of our culture just by having these comedy routines that are magical and funny and entertaining, so it becomes not just something that freaks do, but an integral part of our culture," she observes.

The event concluded with a lip sync contest involving multiple students dressed in drag. The winner was awarded a prize provided by the university.
