A few years ago, my friend Beth and I were hanging around the East Village of New York City and we ended up at the Bowery Poetry Club.  We were thumbing through a copy of Time Out New York trying to find a FREE event to go to.  And, there it was!  Drag Queen Bingo with Murray Head, NYC's most well-known drag king.  We rolled up in the Bowery, got a BINGO card a piece, plopped down and had a ridiculously good time.

Well, now, Drag Queen Bingo is coming to Owensboro.  I am on the board of New Beginnings here in town and we're teaming up with the Owensboro Convention Center for a fun new event.  It's 7:30pm, Saturday, June 12th and tickets are on sale now!

Tickets are $25 per person or you can purchase a table of eight for $175.  Both options are available and tickets go on sale now at 10am CST (Monday, May 3rd) at OwensboroTickets.com.

Many of the actresses in this story not only made a name for themselves through their collection of iconic performances, but also through the selfless, philanthropic nature with which many of them approached their stardom. In an age of flipping the script on societal norms, many of these actresses are using their voices and platforms to be advocates for those who are otherwise unheard.
