Liberty Memorial Middle School in Lawrence, Kansas was the site of the 2021 Lights On Talent Show. “Amanda Love,” who was recently crowned as Miss Gay Kansas, hosted the talent show for the Boys & Girls Club of Lawrence. Miss Gay Kansas “emcee’d like the queen she is,” according to the organization.

The top three finishers were all elementary school groups.

The following photos of the event are a couple of the pictures posted by the Boys & Girls Club of Lawrence. Photo credit was given to Jeff Burkhead on the public post by the Boys & Girls Club of Lawrence.
