In November of 2014, the Come Out With Pride Board was suspended, its executive director fired and being investigated for fraud. The books were a disaster and the Metropolitan Business Association – COWP’s umbrella organization – was working overtime to try to untangle the mess and get COWP back on track.

Hitting the G Spot

Well the other heel in the oversized stiletto has dropped and things are now official. As we previously reported from multiple reliable sources, Southern Nights Orlando had shown an interest in purchasing Ybor’s G. Bar. As of Memorial Day weekend, G. Bar will be nothing more than a blurry alcohol-induced memory of years past and will be under new ownership and management as Southern Nights Tampa. Its proposed Grand Re-Opening is Thursday, June 18th. Orlando’s own, Chris “Tadpole” Hannay, will be leaving the city beautiful and taking that dashing smile out to the Bay where he will now work as the new GM of SNT. On Wednesday, June 3, a combination birthday and going away party is scheduled for Chris. Now, only if there was a high-speed train connecting the two cities to make it easier to bar hop.

Ginger Minj may be known as the gospel-loving “Cross Dresser for Christ” on LOGO TV’s RuPaul’s Drag Race: Season 7, but this Florida native considers herself more of a performance chameleon and a Broadway girl. “Give me a microphone and let me work,” says Ginger during the interview. “Rest assured it will be funny and inappropriate.”

Born in Leesville, Ginger grew up in the Lake County theater scene and cites performance and entertainment as being the only life she’s ever known. When she turned 18, she sold everything she owned, moved to New York and performed on Broadway. Ginger left New York in 2006 and moved to Orlando, where she became a regular drag performer for the Sleuth’s Mystery Dinner Theater.

Is Ginger Minj MIA for RDR?
Something suspicious is happening on Facebook these days, and it could mean big news for fans of Orlando drag performer Ginger Minj. Website Dragaholic.com recently posted speculation on contestants for Season 7 of RuPaul’s Drag Race. The website sites sudden social media disappearances of drag performers around the nation as reason to believe they are filming the popular LOGO series in California. Ginger Minj is among the social media absentees! Ginger posted last month that she was to be quarantined for MRSA and in doing so she will have limited access to the internet. This sent the rumor mill sashaying, since Ginger was recently campaigning to be one of the fabulous ladies for Season 7. As an accomplished performer, Ginger/Josh has performed in theatrical productions and appeared in television across the nation as well as been nationally recognized in various female impersonator pageants. Watermark couldn’t get in touch with Ginger, but her husband, William, confirmed the MRSA quarantine.

No Queens for King’s!
The HRC Disco Bowl IV split from calling King’s Bowling it’s home. The I-Drive bowling ally was an unwelcoming place, according to the HRC, when an employee of the establishment told organizers exactly that. Management has since apologized for the employee’s comments and tried to rectify the situation, but by then, the Disco Bowl had already been rescheduled at Colonial Lanes. It’s unclear if the change of venue will remain in 2015.
