Gaybingo Dallas marked its 10th anniversary in the Rose Room at Station 4 on Saturday, and as you can see, co-host Jenna Skyy gave a pretty special performance to mark the occasion. Check out DV contributor Brent Paxton’s video and photos below.
We’ll have a full story in Friday’s print edition previewing Saturday’s 10th anniversary of Gaybingo Dallas, but if you plan on going, you might want to go ahead and secure your tickets if you haven’t already, as we’re guessing it’ll be sold out.

Doors open at 5 p.m, with games starting at 6, in the Rose Room at S4, 3911 Cedar Springs. Go here to purchase tickets, or for more info call RCD at 214-528-0144. Happy Birthday, Gaybingo!
Resource Center Dallas’ “Gaybingo” marks tenth birthday July 16
Dallas – Since 2000, Resource Center Dallas’ monthly “Gaybingo” events redefine the bingo-playing experience for thousands of people in North Texas. As it marks its tenth anniversary July 16 (Saturday), “Gaybingo” fans from across the area will enjoy an evening of games and cutting-edge entertainment.
Hosted by Jenna Skyy, Patti Le Plae Safe and Asia O’Hara, and featuring the BVD’s (Bingo Verifying Divas and Dudes), each “Gaybingo” is built around a fun theme and entertainment. The 10-year anniversary theme is “Gaybingo Live!” and will feature a variety of special guests including past Gaybingo hosts, displays of Gaybingo memorabilia throughout the years, a festive birthday celebration and other fun surprises.
The 15 bingo games are far from ordinary. Players must make designs like pinwheels and skylines. If you call a ‘bingo’ when you haven’t won, you go to bingo jail on the stage.
“Gaybingo” is held every third Saturday of the month, except December, in The Rose Room at S4, 3911 Cedar Springs, Dallas. Doors open at 5 p.m. and games start at 6 p.m. Pre-sold tickets, available at http://www.rcdallas.org get first entry when the doors open. Guests must be at least 21 to attend “Gaybingo.” Proceeds from “Gaybingo” support the programs and services of Resource Center Dallas, including those focused on health and wellness, families and communities, and education and advocacy.
