For what might be one of the first times on Six Nations, Grand River Live is set to host Drag Queen Bingo next week at the Gathering Place by the Grand.
“Join us for a night of fun as we welcome Crystal Quartz to the Gathering Place by the Grand for a night of Drag Queen Bingo with drag performances throughout the evening,” states the event posting on eventbrite.ca.
The June 30 event is listed as a 19-plus show, full of dirty humour and “if you are easily offended, this isn’t the show for you.”
Jon Dobbie aka Crystal Quartz is set to host the evening. Crystal Quartz has more than 200,000 followers on TikTok and saw the COVID-19 pandemic lockdowns as an opportunity to commit to drag, a long time passion of his.
He told GuelphToday in 2021 that prior to the pandemic, he was working at a nightclub as a bottle service manager. With COVID leaving him jobless, he decided to commit to elevating his drag.
Dobbie told GuelphToday he learned how to do makeup at the age of 15 at the cosmetology program in College Heights Secondary School,
“Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Bingo starts promptly at 7 p.m. Please arrive before 7 p.m. to get your bingo sheets and to be seated,” said the event listing.
