Pride of our Footscray is taking its quarantine queens online for a weekly bingo night

Shortly after the first round of shutdowns were announced in mid-March, Pride of our Footscray brought us a livestreamed drag night – a way to celebrate pride inside. Since then, the bar and its drag queens have been hosting good old fashioned drag bingo nights but updated for the online realm.

Self Bingolation combines all the fun of drag bingo, with all the fun of staying at home and protecting the community from coronavirus. Aurora Arsenic will be your host as you play along at home and enjoy a night of comedy, singing, drag and bingo.  

The event starts at 7.30pm and winners will be showered with prizes like shout-outs, bar tabs (for future use), novelty items, screen time and pride. Stay at home with your household only to enjoy the event, or phone in friends via Zoom or Houseparty.

Self Bingolation's next event will be held on Wednesday, October 14 at 7.30pm. Aurora Arsenic will host as always, with this week's show being a disco-themed affair with a to-be-announced special co-host. In celebration of one of Australia's greatest singers, Aurora will also be performing a special tribute to Helen Reddy.

Tickets start at a very reasonable price $9 for bingo and a show – now’s the time to support local artists. Pride of our Footscray has also started selling merch if you're a longtime fan. Payment information and more details can be found on Pride of our Footscray’s website.
