Justin Sayre Keeps Gay Culture Alive (With A Little Help From His Friends)
Comedian, performing artist, playwright, and gay activist Justin Sayre was described by Michael Musto as "Oscar Wilde meets Whoopi Goldberg." So who better to undertake the task of preserving gay culture? Each month Sayre honors an artist or an iconic gay cultural work through his award winning and highly acclaimed show "The Meeting."
Presented in the format of a membership meeting of the fictitious gay organization The International Order of Sodomites (I.O.S.), Sayre, as Chairman of the Board, brings his hilarious and sardonic wit to essential business of the day through such regular features as "Letters to the Chairman" and "New Rulings from the Board" all the while using the musical and comedic talents of special guest stars to discuss the uproarious business at hand of the I.O.S. to its membership, the audience.
As an actress, BeBe was introduced to film with a lead role in the independent film "Under One Sun" with her character dealing with religious, racial and gender issues. Additionally, she appeared in the campy musical "Devious, Inc" (Australian Film Festival, San Francisco Short Film Fest) also adding additional vocals to the musical soundtrack. Both of these performances led to her selection for a lead role in Aisha Media’s next short film series, "Con-tin.u.um" to be released in 2012.
