The Meeting* is a monthly "gay romp through politics (sexual and otherwise), social news, music, comedy skits, and other important life-changing information." The gay variety show dedicates each installment to a different icon; show times are 7 PM and 9:30 PM.
Pope will perform during the 7 PM presentation that marks the fourth anniversary of the series. The 9:30 PM tribute to Bond, a Tony Award nominee for Kiki & Herb, will include Nicholas Gorham, Carol Lipnik, Shane Shane, Chris Tyler and Reginald M. Lamar.
Bond is a celebrated author, performer and visual artist. V, as Bond is also known, is an advocate for the trans community and the use of gender-neutral pronouns.
