Nclusion Plus held two drag performances Saturday at Stephens Lake Park’s Reichmann Pavilion. The 4 p.m. show was family-friendly and the 7 p.m. show was for 18 and older and included dinner. The shows had a “Christmas in July” theme and were sponsored by the Laser Clinic and Liberty Family Medicine.

Nclusion Plus was formed by a group of former patrons of the Yin Yang Night Club after the club closed earlier this year. Nclusion Plus’ ultimate goal is to have a venue for community gatherings and events and to provide a safe space for the LGBTQIA+ community. More information is available on their website at
