Drag queens host bingo night

It was a packed house as Associated Students (AS) and Honey Davenport held Drag Bingo in the Otter Student Union Ballroom on Thursday, March 16.

Honey Davenport, New York queen and RuPaul’s Drag Race season 11 contender, opened the night with an Ariana Grande lip sync. She started hosting bingo at different colleges over the pandemic over Zoom, and this was California State University, Monterey Bay’s first in person. 

She exposed Rupaul tea and trivia throughout the night as tiebreakers. “First round we have two winners! Remember when they did that on drag race? Not on my season.”

Winners received insulated mugs, magic bullet blenders and air fryers throughout the games.  

Work Witch winner Kai Mera performed “My Girlfriend is a Witch” by October Country in a velvet green dress with big red eyes on its sleeves. 

Lightning Storm Mcking lip synched “So You Wanna Marry Daisy” by Spence Hood. Their performance had the entire room cheering as they stood up on chairs, danced across the aisles and revealed tear away pants. 

After the student performances Honey Davenport entered again with an outfit change to a bright yellow and black jumpsuit performing more songs. 

Honey Davenport spoke out against the bills being passed in Tennessee banning drag performance. “I believe in drag so much. As a genderqueer individual this art form has saved my life growing up. The amount of love you all have shared with me gives me a lot of strength to keep going.”

“A lot of people don’t want us to keep going, but we’ve got our right to vote to ensure nights like this continue in a country this beautiful.”

After her heartfelt speech, Honey Davenport spoke on the newly passed AS proposal to raise its student fee. 

“Raising the fee will help events like this happen in the future.” She reminds students to vote starting March 20 – 22 via MyRaft on the increase. 

The night ended with a meet and greet where students got their picture taken with Davenport.
