I am here for your entertainment and prowled the streets of Baltimore to see what I could find for you!
On Sunday April 10, Miss Victoria Blair had a benefit show at Mixer’s on BelAir Rd. to help raise money to continue her efforts to run for Miss Gay MD America 2011! Miss Blair gathered many entertainers to help her such as and not limited to Miss Marketta Minett, Miss Anita Minett, Miss Kelly Koxx, Miss Anastacia (Miss Mixers 2010), Miss Cha’nel Van Cartier Couture, Miss Shateesah Alexander, and of course Miss Victoria Blair. MC for the evening was Miss Karmella and DJ Joe Pipkin spun the music for the evening. As always the bar was packed and everyone was entertained.
On Thursday April 14, I finally was able to attend the Annual Towson University Drag Show. It was held at the Queer Student Union and included many students along with local entertainers such as Miss Anastacia, Miss Karmella, Miss Anita Minett, Miss Phoenix Bloomingdale, Miss Sue Nami, Miss Vanity Starr, Miss Kelly Koxx and many students who performed in various acts. The show was free and was very entertaining from start to finish.
Friday April 15, at PW’s Sports Bar Miss Stormy Vain & Miss Regina Jozet Adams held a benefit for John Hopkins. The night was full of many entertainers including Miss Marketta Minett, Miss Ada Buffet, Miss Cha’nel Van Cartier Couture, Miss Ashlee Jozet Adams, Miss Gracie Freebush including Miss Stormy & Miss Regina. Miss Stormy Vain finished out the night with a song and requested anyone who had or knew someone who died from cancer to come join her on stage. The stage got so full of people with many with tears and Stormy brought the house down. The night was a huge success with all the entertainers giving up all their tips from the night, and they raised over $700.00 for John Hopkins. As John Hopkins was leaving for the evening they were given another $100.00 to add to the donations. What an amazing evening for all.

On a personal note, I would like to say happy three-year-anniversary to my daughter and son-n-law (Samantha & Billy Dickens) which was celebrated on April 19.
Finally: Please be safe out there and make sure you lock your car doors and that personal items are hidden and out of sight. I was out and had someone break into my vehicle and stole my new friend’s backpack. On a funny note, they also stole my mints from my center console. Just be careful out there.
Until next time boys & girls when Hunter is on the Prowl!
