Drag Queen Bingo


08-02-19

Many people came to our evening of bingo fun featuring Drag Queen Vanity LaRouge! We had so much fun and had a bigger turn out than we initially were expecting! We were happy to introduce drag to some of our guests and had such a great time with everyone! Big shout out to Vanity LaRouge for hosting and Mike Olsen for helping us get the bingo equipment.

Some of the photos are a bit dark and grainy unfortunately but we included them anyways. Feel free to share any of your photos with info@straitspride.org and we would be happy to add them and credit you!
