The Bunk House is Patchogue is currently one of the Island’s main stops for LGBT nightlife, and it plays host to drag shows on a frequent and regular basis. Most of the time, these events are thrown simply to entertain, but this weekend there’s a program scheduled to amuse while also helping to support a special cause.
It’s being called “Cancer Is a Drag,” and on April 28, the Bunk House stage will see almost two dozen drag performers ply their craft in the name of Stepping Stone Support (steppingstonesupport.org), a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization that works to help men, women and families affected by cancer and infertility.
The doors open at 8 p.m., and such Bunk House favorites as Mimi Carey and Valentino (“Mr. Long Island Drag King”) are among those slated to regale the crowd -- but the main event is to be an appearance by Ivy Winters, an artiste who recently starred on the LOGO cable channel’s “RuPaul's Drag Race” reality show as a contestant during its most current season.
