Virtual Drag Bingo: Pride Edition
6 p.m. Friday. Advance registration required.
June is Pride month, but it looks and feels a whole lot different this year, courtesy of the pandemic. However, you can still fill your heart with rainbows while supporting Equality Maine’s SAGE programming for LGBTQ and older adults by participating in virtual drag bingo. The host is queen Ophelia Johnson, and the evening will be full of laughs, and if you’re lucky, prizes! When you register, you’ll receive print-at-home bingo cards and maybe you’ll whip up a bingo cocktail to enjoy during the games. Good luck and happy pride!
