What do you get when you mix the drama of bingo, the excitement of music and the suspense of a 1980s game show? If you don’t already know the answer, it’s about time you’re introduced to a little event known as Rebel Bingo. Rebel Bingo got its start as a small basement game played across the United Kingdom. Bingo enthusiasts with a craving for excitement would file into these basements for an innovative combination of classic bingo rules with an extra helping of excitement. Since those days, the game has grown into one of the country’s favorite pastimes.

Then, spend hours on your hour to get that perfect “I don’t care enough to style my hair” look. When that’s done, don one of your patterned ties. But just so you’re not too dressed up, make sure you’re wearing jeans. Loose fitting won’t do. They need to be as skinny and uncomfortable as humanly possible.

It’s been on hiatus since 2010, but Gay Bingo made its long-awaited return to Charlotte on Saturday night. The event is a key fundraiser for the Regional Aids Interfaith Network (RAIN), which is one of the largest nonprofits in North Carolina providing direct services to HIV/AIDS-impacted individuals. Gay Bingo got its start in 2000 as Big Hair Bingo in the basement of the Great Aunt Stella Center with about 100 supporters, but its popularity has rapidly grown over the years. In 2010, roughly 2,000 supporters attended the event at the Grady Cole Center. Although Gay Bingo is targeted at a mature audience, it is an all-inclusive event for bingo lovers of all distinctions.

In total, Gay Bingo features more than a [...]
