We Have Fun Doing Good Things

Hello, friends! How is everyone’s week starting off? We hope it’s nothing short of fabulous and that you’ve fully fought off that Monday feeling. We recently had the pleasure of being guests at Step-Up, Inc.’s Afterparty, hosted via Zoom, for RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars 5! We had such a good time and were so honored to be invited to support a great cause.

Step-Up, Inc. is a non-profit agency based in Indianapolis that provides HIV/STD prevention services, education, and care and wellness programs to newly diagnosed HIV patients. They partner with local medical facility, Eskenazi Health, to provide onsite care at Step-Up to patients who require higher levels of care and attention. Very cool. I (Jamal) have been tested at various Step-Up locations in the past. Every visit was pleasant, informative, and the staff was uber helpful. 

Getting to pop up at Step-Up’s All Stars 5 Afterparty was such a pleasant way to kick off the weekend. Any chance we get to support and build our queer community, we’re definitely taking it! We had a blast answering questions, interacting with the other attendees, and were super pumped to be helping raise money for the organization. The whole hour was like a Drag Race, post-show tea party, and we feel so lucky to have been invited.

Thanks so much for having us, Step-Up! I have a feeling you’ll be seeing us at the next, and future afterparties.

Jamal and Seth met in 2005 as members of the Indiana University Marching Hundred. Seth played Clarinet and Jamal played trumpet. They became fast friends and still share great mutual friends over thirteen years later. Stony and Jamal met at IU as well, sharing mutual, non-band friends, and began dating in 2011. Eventually the two would become married in May of 2014. Stony came into the circle as a result and the rest is herstory! Thanks for Coming Podcast originally started as a RuPaul’s Drag Race recap show, airing once a week and spilling all the tea on the latest drag drama. After RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars 3 and season 10 aired, the show morphed into a queer culture podcast; covering all kinds of fun topics in pop culture and queer life. January 2019 will mark the first birthday of the show and the guys couldn’t be more excited. Not only do they get to share their commentary on RuPaul’s Drag Race and queer life, but it’s also a great way for friends to chat and catch up once a week. Thanks for Coming, America!
