Gay Bingo 2010 kick-off a staggering success

Boot Camp Gay Bingo January 16 Fremont Studios

On January 16, the Gay Bingo 2010 season kicked off at Fremont Studios between purple walls and under disco balls with "Boot Camp Gay Bingo." Hosted by Aleksa Manila, this Gay Bingo featured a veritable battalion of men and women in military attire.

Almost all of the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence from the Abbey of St. Joan were at Gay Bingo, verifying winners and helping out all around while keeping the crowd of 700 bingo players entertained with their absolutely fabulous shenanigans.

Sister Stella Standing joined Lifelong AIDS Alliance Executive Director David Richart for a heartfelt fundraising speech about HIV/AIDS. Sister Stella Standing, who is HIV-positive, asked bingo players how many of them had been affected by HIV/AIDS during their lifetime, either by being HIV-positive themselves or by having a friend or loved one with HIV.

Only about a third of the room raised their hands. It became clear to Sister Standing that a lot of the people that came to Gay Bingo wanted to give to Lifelong AIDS Alliance - even though they hadn't been directly affected by HIV/AIDS - proving Gay Bingo is for everyone.

Gay Bingo was such a complete success that nearby ATMs ran out of money as people donated to Lifelong AIDS Alliance. Gay Bingo featured a full bar, proceeds from which went directly to Lifelong AIDS Alliance, as well as tables from local businesses like Movin 92.5 and the Seattle Weekly.

Now in its 17th Season, Gay Bingo has returned, and it's better than ever. Each Gay Bingo will have its own special theme. The next Gay Bingo, to be held February 20, will be "Racy and Lacy Gay Bingo."

Fremont Studios is located at 155 N. 35th St. Gay Bingo is sponsored primarily by MOMS Pharmacy.
