This is Logan and she's here for the workshop!

Tonight, Lerner Party Space will hold its second drag-themed dance of the year (so far), the Fantasy Ball! The Fantasy Ball is part of IvyQ 2011, a conference for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and allied students from across the Ivy League hosted by Columbia this weekend. IvyQ includes lots of interesting conferences and seminars on LGBTQA issues, but those are restricted to conference registrants ($15), the purple-shirted people you can see wandering around campus and getting highly inaccurate ideas of what Columbia is like in February.

Lucky for you, fair readers, the dance is open to everyone, though tickets cost $5 (there’s going to be a drag workshop and costume contest), and your friends from NYU (sans CUID) have to RSVP to the Facebook group. The organizers say they’re not planning to sell that many tickets at the door, but don’t let that stop you from living out your fantasies! The dance starts at 11:00, doors at 10:30.
