There are so many it's hard to pick, but my favorite is the Brown Bag Drag Show hosted by Spectrum KU (formerly known as Queers & Allies). They bring in professional drag queens and encourage students to enter with their own choreographed musical numbers. In 2010 when Westboro Baptist Church started a protest during the show, students came together in a counterprotest by holding a pledge per minute fund raiser for the amount of time Fred Phelps attended. Needless to say, he left quickly after he found out and he never personally attended the protests again, causing the number of protesters to dwindle significantly. The thousand-plus dollars raised were donated to Planned Parenthood of Kansas and Mid-Missouri. This is one of my favorite examples of how KU students can think outside the box, by fighting hate with humor and charity rather than more hate.
