Drag Bingo!

What a fun time we had last night! Finally made it to Drag Bingo at the Armory in Durham.

Drag Bingo raises money for (and 100% of the money goes to) Alliance of AIDS Services - Carolina (AAS-C), whose Mission Statement is: "The Alliance of AIDS Services – Carolina’s mission is to serve people living with HIV/AIDS, their loved ones, caregivers, and communities at large, through compassionate and non-judgmental care, prevention, education, and advocacy." 


My friend Bill died of AIDS in the late Eighties. He was a kind, sweet man and I miss him. Anyway, before I start crying (again), back to Drag Bingo.


Last night's theme was Madonna, so in between bingo games, a fabulously dressed drag queen would dance and lip sync to a Madonna song. Campy fun was had by all.


I happened to win the first game. Won another game too, but didn't call it, didn't want to seem greedy. 
Plus it's hot up there on that stage! If you win, it's up on the stage for you to be gently interrogated (name, where you're from, etc.) by Mary K. Mart and John Paul, the Mistress and Master of Drag Bingo while your card is being verified. 

When I got home, I signed up to volunteer.
