Company: Austin Nation, Producer
Dates: Jan. 12, 13 @ 8pm, Jan. 14 @ 2pm, 2024

Diagnosed with HIV/AIDS at the age of 26, this is the story of a person facing his own mortality until the release of the life extending drug AZT.  At 40, Austin beat back his demons and is living his best life as a drag performer and a professor at Cal State Fullerton.  It’s a story you don’t want to miss!

Nominated by BROADWAYWORLD LOS ANGELES for Best Cabaret/Concert/Solo Performance and recently performing Off – off-Broadway in NYC, Austin Nation will share his entertaining and humorous autobiographical piece, From Crack to PhD: A Drag Queen’s Story.
