In celebration of Pride Month, join the Fulbright Program for a conversation with Sasha Velour, winner of RuPaul’s Drag Race (Season 9) and 2009 Fulbright U.S. Student to Russia. Sasha will discuss her Fulbright experience, share the behind-the-scenes influences that have shaped her celebrated career, and address the important contributions the LGBTQIA+ community has made on art, culture, and history in the United States and abroad.
Sasha’s work has been featured on NPR, in The New York Times, Rolling Stone, Vogue, Billboard, and Variety, and her most recent critically acclaimed show, Smoke and Mirrors, has been hailed by Forbes as a “a spellbinding tour de force.”
Christian Flores will join Sasha in conversation and ask her your questions! Christian is a 2019 Fulbright English Teaching Assistant to Brazil, where he worked on Projeta Memoria LGBT — Bagé to tell the stories of Bagé’s LGBTQIA+ community.
