• FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

  • Is Gay Bingo Charlotte still happening this year?

    Yes, Gay Bingo Charlotte is still going to happen but we are just doing it virtually this year! This means that this year there will be NO bingo being played and it will all be about entertaining you for a full hour! We know the last thing people probably want to do is jump on a "Zoom call" and play bingo. We agree and aren't doing that. We've partnered with Live Events Media Group and The Littlefield Co. to bring you some of the silliest and best entertainment we all need to see this fall!

     

    Think of this year's bingo as a variety show so be ready for a night of laughs, outrageous costumes, wacky Olympic games and unpredictable entertainment! Miss Rona isn't going to stop us!

    Is Gay Bingo Charlotte a game of chance?

    No, it is not a game of chance and you will not win anything. Gay Bingo is not real bingo; it is an unconventional and entertaining fundraising event with a bingo theme. You are not able to win any money or prizes for playing.

    Where is Gay Bingo Charlotte?

    Gay Bingo Charlotte has gone completely virtual this year. You can watch the show from the comfort of your home - that means you can watch and laugh while you are in bed, on the couch or on the back porch. You can view the performance from your TV, laptop, tablet or smart phone! Same date, same hot mess - just virtual!

    Is there an age restriction?

    While we don't have a minimum age for attendance, we do ask that anyone in "attendance" 16 or younger be with a parent or guardian. There will be adult humor, so please use your discretion if bringing children. At the end of the day it is up to the parent/guardian to make that decision.
