We LOVE The Golden Girls

On March 6, I was honored to be a performer at a special event that tributes the classic sitcom, The Golden Girls. The soriee called "We Love The Golden Girls" took place at the legendary Stonewall Inn in Greenwich Village NYC, where Drag Queens caused a Riot that sparked the modern Gay Civil Rights movement in 1969. This evening Queens who were born as both genders impersonated Dorothy, Blanche, Rose and Sophia of Miami in that fabulous 80s television comedy. There was a look-alike contest, cheesecake buffet with episodes playing on screen all evening. I sang "Little Girl from Little Rock" from "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes" but changed the words and sang "I'm just a little girl from Saint Olaf." in honor or Rose Nieland. We all had a solid gold time with Linda Simpson, Queens Marie, Alexia, Raven Snook, Sharyn Jackson, Hatty Hathaway, Gayle Robbins as "Barbra Striesand" and many others.
