After a 2-year hiatus, one of Wyoming’s most anticipated events is scheduled to return soon. The hiatus was caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, which resulted in quite a few businesses shutting down and many charity events, such as the ones sponsored by Wyoming Equality to be postponed. Wyoming Equality is a nonprofit organization, that advocates for the rights of LGBT residents of Wyoming of all ages. They place special emphasis on youth support programs and healthcare.
What is the Drag Queen Bingo?
The nonprofit organization organizes a yearly event, the Wyoming Equality’s Drag Queen Bingo. The event includes a fabulous game of bingo, as well as performances by some of the top Drag Queen performers in the state.
Unforeseen circumstances involving the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent lockdown have resulted in a long hiatus of the Drag Queen Bingo. However, in 2022, the event is coming back with a vengeance.
The official title for the event is Drag Queen Bingo: Border War, and it will take place on September 24th at the Terry Bison Ranch. The event will start at 8:00 pm and will see Wyoming and Colorado’s best drag queen performers.
Fan favorites like Oblivia, Queen of the Clueless (from Wyoming) and Khrys’taal (from Colorado) will be taking center stage as hosts of the event. The two are scheduled to have a lip-sync battle on behalf of their home states.
Apart from the spectacular hosts, audiences can expect to win a wide array of awards and prizes by bidding in a silent auction. The event will also be topped off with a stocked bar and a nacho table, for those looking for some drinks and snacks.
Every cent earned at the Wyoming Equality Drag Queen Bingo will help the organization in its fight to support LGBT youths. Tickets cost $25 each, and for those who want to sit at the VIP tables, $400. The Deputy Director of the event, Ammon Medina has stated that residents of Wyoming seem very excited to do what they can in helping the organization. This goes double if they are offered some fun in exchange.
With the increasing number of LGBT people who claim that healthcare and community support are essential aspects of their wellbeing, the work that Wyoming Equality does is more relevant than ever. Events like Drag Queen Bingo are essential, not just because they help raise money and support, but also because they help the community in accepting something which has for so long been considered strange.
After the long hiatus, Wyoming Equality’s Drag Queen Bingo is returning in full force. For their 2022, event they have brought out all of the big guns, attracting some of the top drag queen performers from both Wyoming and Colorado. The event will not only feature a spectacular bingo game, but some fabulous performances, fancy cocktails, and delicious nachos.
For anyone interested to catch a glimpse of the event, tickets are selling for $25. The VIP table seats are going for as much as $400.
