White Only Talent Contest! (How’s that sound?)
Stevenson University is set to host a highly anticipated talent show next month. The only stipulation, however, is that performers must identify as “queer.”
The talent show is an annual event at the Maryland school, hosted by The Q Group. According The Villager, The Q Group “represents queer students and allies on the Stevenson campus, as they provide a space for individuals to be expressive without judgment.”
In other words, the group’s talent show could easily be perceived as a campus safe space.
Anthony Plaag, Vice President of The Q Group, stated that the club is “open to expanding to other queer artists and performers from the surrounding Baltimore area” but has not commented on if the talent show would be opened up to straight males.
