5/20 to 5/28: Boston Pride Idol Auditions

Nick Ciaccio, Pride Idol Winner

Various Times
Boston Pride Idol Auditions
at Various Locations
$10 Entry Fee

Boston Pride Festival is about a month away, and I think "Pride Idol" was one of the additions in recent years.

There are 4 more audition opportunities for 10 spots at the finals on WED 6/10 at Club Cafe. Along with other prizes, the winner will perform at festival on SAT 6/13.

If you're a fan of American Idol and/or it's outrageousness, then imagine what out-in-the-open (Hello, Clay!) gay "Idol" will be like.

My guess is that most people will take it seriously, but there has to be a few wild contestants in the mix... There aren't winners at each audition, so the top ten will be notified by June 3.

The entry fee is a tax-deductible donation to Boston Pride, but you can go and watch for the fun of it. I don't think there's a cover charge at Club Cafe, but Thursday is "Ladies Night/Queeraoke" at Midway Cafe with a $5 cover.
