The University of Michigan-Dearborn’s PRIDE organization will be hosting a free Mocktail party on November 13 for all students at 8 pm in Kochoff Hall C. During the event, PRIDE is screening the movie The Birdcage at 9:15 pm.

Anthony Wagner, chair of PRIDE, said this event is meant for students to have fun and spend time with each other.

“We want to have fun and take a break from academics,” Wagner said.

PRIDE decided to screen The Birdcage in order to take a look at drag culture. He added that the organization also decided to screen the movie after many requests from students.

Wagner said that PRIDE is the first student organization at UM-D to screen the movie and he has received good feedback so far.

The event will also be serving free food and drinks. Wagner said a bartender dressed in drag will be at the Mocktail party serving non-alcoholic drinks such as “The Ugly Virgin,” “After Glow,” “Evil Princess,” and “Pussy Foot.”
