On Friday, WSU hosted the Homecoming Out Celebration. This dance and drag show featured Eureka O'Hara and Bebe Zahara Benet, both who were on "RuPaul's Drag Race." Along with the drag race contestants, Detroit's very own queens — Sabin, Emma Saphire and Thrustin’ Bieber — also celebrated with WSU students.
This event happened on National Coming Out Day and is also part of WSU's week-long series of events, which are in observance of National Coming Out Week.
