The basement at Points South in Fells Point is crowded with people eating dinner and making conversation just like they always do. But this is Thursday night, and Thursday night at Points South is unlike any other night.
It’s Drag Queen Bingo night.
The night begins with Brooklyn Heights coming out and starting the show. She sets the mood for the entire evening, while also scanning to find the weakest link in the crowd. She is sassy, and she will not refrain from making fun of everyone in the room, no matter who it is.
Then she announces Bambi Nicole Ferrah, an equally sassy queen who helps Brooklyn by announcing the balls for the bingo games. The bingo games are extremely fun, and full of raunchy jokes and rude comments.
However, the bingo does not matter compared to the performances.
When Rebecca Blaqqueout came out to perform, the entire room erupted. As she danced around the room getting tips from everyone, including some in very erotic fashion, she pulled off a split and the entire room erupted in excitement.
Then there is Ariel Von Quinn. All of these Queens are full of energy and excitement, but Ariel seems to find a way to turn it up to 11.
She has more energy than I could ever have or dream to have, with dance moves that I weren’t even sure existed. Hell, other dancers might not have even known these existed.
The best performance of the entire night however belonged to Brooklyn and Bambi who picked on a man named Topher all night long, by doing a dance to “No Scrubs” by TLC while giving Topher all the attention he could muster, before Topher took Brooklyn’s wig and put on a show of his own for the crowd.
The Point South Drag Show was the first ever drag event I have ever been to, but I can promise you that it will not be the last. I can not stress enough how much fun this event was. These queens are ridiculously funny, incredibly talented and know how to put on a show that you will never forget.
Points South also donates a percentage of money they get from the event to charities, such as this Thursday show when portions were given to the Joshua York Foundation.
So while you’re being berated for entertainment, you’re actually doing some good as well.
