Protests expected outside of University of San Diego drag show tonight | VIDEO

SAN DIEGO - On Thursday, a controversial drag show is set to take place for the second time on the campus of University of San Diego, but some students believe the Catholic campus is no place for a show like this.

The controversy has divided USD students down the middle. On one side is the student-run PRIDE group, which is made up of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning students who are saying that all views should be celebrated. The other is a student group saying a drag show has no business on a Catholic campus.

"I think that this show doesn't respect the dignity of the human person," said concerned USD student Ailsa Tirado.

Tirado plans to protest what is called the "Supreme Drag Superstar 2" show on Thursday night. She and others – like last year – will do that through prayer and song.

"As a student, I came to this university expecting to receive Catholic values, expecting to receive a Catholic formation and expected my faith to be respected," Tirado said. "I think that it's confusing for a school to send both messages to students that the homosexual lifestyle is OK while at the same time the church disagrees with people living a homosexual lifestyle."
