It was time again for my fabulous hosting and number-calling for Center BINGO. It's BINGO with a twist that raises funds for The LGBT Community Center of NYC. My guest hostess for this evening was the fierce comedian from DList Radio, Robbyne Kaamil. She was the first genetic born woman to ever co-host the BINGO and her humor and energy was absolutely enjoyable. It was a great crowd of over 300 people who loved Robbyne's and mine joking and banther. Robbyne generously raffled off many of DVDs of her electrifying and critically-acclaimed one-woman show, "Robbyne Kaamil: Raw and Real. . . . Life From One Woman's Perspective." Robbyne is also a fantastic advice columnist and reminds everyone how they should just keep it real. Many times you just need someone like Robbyne to tell you what you need to hear. And to make you laugh. You MUST visit her site at www.canwebereal.com.
I was once again a featured performer in the monthly Cabaret series, Sexahol Review, since it celebrates the decadent pleasures life has to offer, it was perfect that it took place on Mardi Gras this month! It took place on February 24 at Jimmy's No. 43 in Manhattan's East Village. I belted out "When You're Good to Mama" in Mae West fashion and "Diamonds Are A Girl's Best Friend" a la Carrol Channing! Other performers included Evan Laurence, David Slone, Burlesque Divas Anita Cookie, Apathy Angle and Vera Wylde, Rita Petite, Kyle Supley, and Jeff Martini.
Out Music, a network of Gay performers, composers, producers, media, and others who support LGBT music and the artists who create it, held a concert at The LGBT Center on Monday, February 2nd. I was glad to be a part of it. Other artists who were also part of the fabulous performance included Stewart Lewis, Animus, Aris Ziagos, Barnacle Bill, Dan Manjovi, J. Michael Reeds, Jed Ryan, Deepa Soul and Lovari, who sang songs from his new album, The Statement. Out Music is committed to creating opportunities for artists raising awarness and offering a forum. Everone said they enjoyed how I add my glamour and comedy to music with my rendition of the classic "Nobody Does It Like Me"
