Let's Have a Kiki: Sing-Along Edition

Sing your heart out with the Weird City Sisters for Out Youth tonight

Let's Have a Kiki: Sing-Along Edition
by WSC

"It's Raining Men" tonight, so break out the glitter and rainbow headbands, and make your way to Alamo Drafthouse. The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence and their Way Gay Sing Along are doing their part to Keep Austin Queer'd.

The sing-along's roots in musical theatre earns them a place in the gay pantheon already. Add in glowsticks, confetti, props, and five sisters in lily white face, and the genre borders on flaming.

The Sisters, aka the Weird City Sisters are enterprising young lasses. According to Lupe Alvarez aka Buddy Papi, their goal is to raise funds for the community, from the community.

Tonight's event, music videos spanning four decades for two hours straight (or as straight as a sing-along can get), benefits the baby gays, questioning, and compadres of Out Youth. "It'll be a fun little sing-along," says Papi, who will be one of the five bright clown-white faces at the event, "which is amazing for a week night, because it takes so long to manifest." Papi credits Out Youth with saving his life when he was an out queer kid.

So kill two birds with one glowstick; support local gaybies, and sing like it's just you and your shower-head. Things get weird at 7pm, but you can snag those tickets now.
