An Afternoon of Drag Queen BINGO

March 16, 2021 BY Kelly C. Bawden, MS, CCC-SLP

At this point in the pandemic, Zoom meetings and virtual socializing have really lost their sparkle. What was a year ago novel and something we were all doing “just until we get through this,” has now become a way of life and we’re all to be forgiven if we’re just totally over it.  Such was the challenge course set up for us when trying to come up with something fun and novel for our annual winter social event. In the end, the answer was simple: invite drag queens.

We were so honored to have Poison Waters and Syra St. James join us for an afternoon of BINGO and laughs last weekend. There was dancing and singing, games and prizes, and a good time was had by all. Our key takeaway? We’re so thankful that there are talented, funny, engaging artists out there, working hard to make all of this a little bit more bearable. Well. That and we now think that all virtual meetings would be a million percent better if drag queens could attend <3
