The Mirage is an informative celebration of sexual health, inclusivity, and campus and community organizations who provide related services. The event happens annually, and includes participating departments and organizations such as Student Health, Student Wellness, the Pride Alliance Center, Johnson County Public Health, RVAP, and more. 

The Mirage kicks off with the Condom Casino and Infostravaganza—a chance to win great prizes and learn about sexual health from many valuable campus and community organizations. Throughout the night, free rapid HIV testing will be available in conjunction with World AIDS Day.

A drag show is the headline event of the evening, featuring an amateur competition with UI students and the Kings and Queens of Iowa City. The purpose of the drag show is to highlight and celebrate self-expression in all its forms and building a community that supports individuals being their authentic self. 

The Mirage is a drag show with so much more. Regardless of how you identify, this event is for you. This event is free and open to all students.
