Trixie Mattel’s tour, Now With Moving Parts, has already come and gone in New York City, but there’s still a chance to spend an evening with the reigning RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars queen, and for a good cause. On Saturday, September 1, Trixie will host Pride Bingo at Atlantic City’s favorite destination for New Yorkers, Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa, currently celebrating it’s 15th birthday with major events throughout the year including concerts with Cher and Britney Spears.
Pride Bingo supports the Miss’d America drag pageant, also hosted by Borgata, which raises funds for greater Atlantic City LGBT causes and has already contributed more than $300,000 to the region. Both events are part of the hotel’s OUT at Borgata program, which hosts events year-round events catered to LGBT visitors as part of its commitment to the community. Borgata is equally committed to its LGBT staff and has received a perfect score from Human Rights Campaign’s Corporate Equality Index three years in a row. More on OUT at Borgata, including upcoming events and packages here.
Plenty of special guests will join Trixie for drag and comedy performances throughout the evening of Pride Bingo, but a highlight of the event is sure to be a special performance by “It’s Raining Men” singer Martha Wash, a dance music icon since the 80s. Prizes from the night of camp and camaraderie (fueled by signature cocktails, of course) will include dinners, spa treatments, overnight stays, and $1500 Borgata gift card.
Trixie Mattel originally rose to fame on season 7 of RuPaul’s Drag Race back in seventh, where she became an instant fan favorite. Since then, she has developed her own series on Vice with fellow RPDR contestant Katya called UNHhhh and recently won the 3rd installment of RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars.
Tickets to Pride Bingo with Trixie Mattel, the twisted Barbie with a sense of humor as sharp and colorful as her contour, are $35 and can be purchased here.
