Morse High School had their first student-held drag show on Nov. 15, 2016 at 2:30 p.m in the cafetorium. This event was the first of it’s kind in the entire San Diego School District having been proudly organized by the Gay-Straight Alliance’s club president and senior, German Rojas. The drag show was used to create a safe space for students and teachers alike to understand one of the many aspects of the LGBT+ community, and to better understand gender perception and sexual orientation.
