Oregon State University allegedly hosted an "illegal" drag show featuring nudity – where one performer used her bare breasts to lift weights despite children being in attendance.

The show, held June 2 at the university's LaSells Stewart Center in Corvallis, Oregon, was organized by OSU's LGBTQ+ Rainbow Continuum, which advertised it as "ILLEGAL."

"Queer people across the nation are under legislative attack, but we will NOT let them stop our partying!" it said on Instagram.

"We’ve got a great lineup of local queer talent sure to raise the roof just in time for it to get replaced," it said.

The student-funded group advertised the event as open to "all ages," while noting that it would contain "adult themes," according to Campus Reform, a conservative news site about higher education.

The Rainbow Continuum also encouraged LGBTQ members to "Be Gay. Do Crime."

In a video allegedly recorded at the show and shared by Campus Reform, performers are seen walking naked from the waist up on stage. Several people told the news site that children were in the audience at the time.

"Two who were so small two adults had to sit them on their laps so they could see," Rebecca Lang, president of Students for Life at OSU, told Campus Reform.

"The show consisted of extremely explicit sexual content including sexually provocative performances by men and women in drag and costumes," she said.

In the footage shared by the group, one of the drag performers exposes her breasts by removing her top.

She then tries to hold various objects, including a wooden sword and "five-pound" weights, from her breasts.

The woman also brings out a ladder and a "trans-masc" assistant joins her for the "titty weightlifting" performance, according to the report.

Video also shows a drag queen leading a child on stage to be interviewed in front of a cheering audience.

The president of Students for Life at OSU told Campus Reform that the kids "were subjected to a sexual display that included not only references but physical moves and sexually explicit dances by both biological men and women, and extreme nudity as well."

The Rainbow Continuum describes itself as a "student-fee funded organization for lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer, questioning, and intersex (LGBTQQI) students, and our allies at Oregon State University.

"As a social and educational group the Rainbow Continuum strives to create a welcoming and safe space for diverse communities to interact with and relate to one another; educate OSU about the experiences of the LGBTQQIA community," it says.
