The disclaimers of coarse language and sexual themes were displayed all across the gate which led to the tent, yet neither the sign or the blistering heat were enough to keep the countless students away from the event.

Practically a Welcome Week landmark, hundreds upon hundreds of students played a game of Dirty Bingo on the evening of Sept. 6 at the UWSA Tent. There, nobody was safe from the beloved drag queen Sabin, who returned to her hosting duties yet again and quickly energized the audience. Any and all levels of comfort were built to be broken down as she grilled any student who caught her eye, all in the name of filthy good fun. The broken taboos put off little as the audience remained highly receptive, making everyone feel comfortable by illuminating the discomfort.

“The University of Windsor campus is a marketplace for ideas,” said UWSA president Moussa Hamadani. “This openness and the sexual normalization in a kind of comic way is a really good way to portray these norms.”

Given the nature of the event, the prizes won from the standard game of bingo included a variety of sex toys and a personal roasting from the host herself. The lineup for the event extended well beyond the width of Dillon Hall. By the time all students entered, there was not only a single seat left vacant, but many were tucked to the aisles and even outside the tent so everyone who attended had the opportunity to play.

Constantly regarded as one of the university’s most popular events, this recent showing served as a clear confirmation.

“Everyone’s really happy, everyone gets excited, and everyone gets roasted,” said second year drama and education student Ariel Clarke, who attended last year’s event. “It’s like a free for all game for everyone to just enjoy this night with friends and enjoy having a great laugh. It’s the one event everyone should come to.”
