Happy birthday Donna Dumae!

Donna Dumae (aka Don Jenkins)
Donna Dumae (aka Don Jenkins)

He’s been Don Jenkins all his life. But for the last 26 years, he’s also been known as Donna Dumae, a paragon of charity in the Dallas/Fort Worth LGBT community.

And every January, Donna rounds up a cast of her talented friends to host her annual birthday celebration and show to raise money for a worthy cause. This year’s birthday bash fundraiser is Sunday, Jan. 24, at Dallas Eagle. Show time is 7 p.m., and all the money raised will go to AIDS Services of Dallas.

And p.s., the Eagle will be offering some excellent drink specials, from what I hear.

So happy birthday Don “Donna Dumae” Jenkins. And thank you so much for all you do — and have done through the years — for our community!
