She's baaaack!

Get the cosmos and Manolos ready: Miss Shelita is back.

After a painfully-long two year hiatus, Gay Bingo makes a return on Oct. 18. Shelita Hamm and her BVDs (bingo-verifying divas to the uninitiated) are planning an homage to Charlotte and "Sex and the City."

She sent an email spilling the dirt on the upcoming festivities (the first line read "Dear fan of me"). Among the deets:
  • More than 1,300 tickets to the event at the Grady Cole Center have been sold, and the remainder are going fast.
  • A BVD pinup calendar is almost ready for release, and will be on sale at the event.
While actually playing bingo often takes a backseat to the side-splitting hilarity of performance numbers, the message is never lost: all the fun is a fundraiser for the Regional AIDS Interfaith Network. They hope to raise $100,000 with the event at the Grady Cole Center. Previously, the group raised more than $700,000 with six years of shows.

Tickets are $25 each, or $300 for a table. Check out this website for ticket info.
