What is DRAG BINGO, you ask?? The History In mid 2001 a friend and long time supporter of the Alliance, Michael Joyner, brought a unique special event idea to the then Director of Development Justin Leach. The event: Gay Bingo a wildly successful event in Philadelphia and Seattle!
Mary K Mart – a spectacular and beloved local performer - agreed to host the event. Mary K Mart was well-known for her popular show featuring “Mary K Mart and her Trailer Park Beauties.” Mary began to transform her cast of characters into BVDs – Bingo Verifying Divas – Chocolate Shakes, Winnie Baygo, Mini Mart, Betty Ford, Cruella, Miss Skittles, Roxy, Ho-She Man, and Yoko Homo were ready to play bingo. John Paul Womble agreed to chair the AAS-C DRAG BINGO committee including: Randy Light, Loretta Adams, Gene Schrecengost, Ginny Satterfield, Gaston Williams, Tania Boardman, Stephen Jackson, Adrianne Wilson, Wes Wilson and AAS-C staff person , Bill Seagroves. The Capital Corral, Von Kekel Salon and The Independent graciously signed on as founding sponsors to underwrite all the costs of the first year thus making it possible for all proceeds to go directly to the Alliance. With that, DRAG BINGO was born! Meetup Details We will meet inside the Durham Armory at 6:30 pm. The show begins at 7 pm. I will have a sign on the table to indicate our group.
