On March 8, 2024, drag queens Angëll Morana and Logan the Queen performed at Father Madden Hall for the Pride SMC Drag Brunch. At the brunch there was a variety of food served, a cash bar for drinks, and there was a two-act performance by the drag queens.  

Father Madden Hall was filled as students came to watch the two drag queens perform a medley of different musical numbers, including by artists such as Justin Bieber, Ariana Grande, and Taylor Swift. Starting with a blasting duet to “Boogie Shoes” by KC and The Sunshine Band, the queens danced in sparkling purple and red dresses, Angëll’s matching her red hair. Dancing to various artists, Angëll Morana notably danced to “Red” by Taylor Swift and Logan the Queen followed with “bad idea right?” by Olivia Rodrigo. They ended their set with a duet to “Power” by Little Mix.  There was a short intermission between the first and second acts. 

Following the intermission and a quick costume change, the queens returned in matching sequin purple dresses. Angëll Morana and Logan the Queen broke out into a dance to “Nowadays (Roxie)” from Chicago, jumping into the second set of the drag brunch. Logan continued by performing a combination of telephone calls mashed up with “Telephone” by Lady Gaga, featuring popular audio recordings such as the famous Mean Girls phone call. This set incorporated lots of audience interactions, like picking up guests’ phones during “Telephone.” Angëll danced with the audience in “Into You” by Ariana Grande. The duo incorporated the audience by having everyone stand up and dance alongside the queens during “Shake It Off” by Taylor Swift.  

Pride SMC executives hinted, at the end of the show, that they hope to do another drag brunch in the future. After the brunch ended, people mingled. The brunch showcased the two drag queens’ talents with their lip-syncing, dance moves, and energy. Based on audience reaction, the event was a success.
