Portola’s Colorful Drag Queen Bingo Prom

Another drag queen bingo has come and gone in a blaze of smeared makeup and bingo ball glory. The Portola Prom theme for this season’s event was embraced by the crowd with attendees in everything from formal wear to cross dressing fabulousness with even some random pandas and a unicorn tossed into the mix.  Capturing all the outlandish looks of the night, was a wonderfully tacky Garden District themed photo booth with a rose covered disco ball trellis.  Even the police – not the fashion police – made an appearance to show their community support, rounding up drag queens to have their photos taken together in the booth.   Including the emcee for the event and our own local celeb Drag Queen, Pollo Del Mar.  Arguably one of the best hosts yet, Pollo threw some excitement into the games, breaking bingo winning ties with lip syncing challenges and poking fun at the prize packages – the crowd loved it..  Those prizes included everything from a very popular XXX movie, gift cards and Giants tickets to name a few.  .

By the end of the night, the Portola Neighborhood Association had raised over $2,500 to support their community improvement efforts and a Portola Prom King & Queen were crowned – only to have Carrie finally get her revenge with a bucket of fake blood.  The event has grown every year and is now attracting participants from outside the Portola with over half in attendance from other neighborhoods this time. None of this would have been possible without the generous donation of prizes by neighbors and local merchants or without the organizing of Portola’s own drag queen, “Severa Wang”.  Only 6 months until the next one!

Carrie finally gets her revenge on the Prom King & Queen!
