Do you remember that show Dirty Jobs, with Mike Rowe? He would go into all of these crazy situations that people do day in and day out to earn a living, like a sanitation plant or roadkill taxidermists. Well, I am proud to say I have a tough, DIRTY job just like Mike Rowe. I know, I know…cue the strings…
From Saturday’s GLOW PARTY at Axis:
Please note the adorable GLOW panties I am sporting.

I can’t believe the experience that was NINA DOES CBUS. Truly, one of the most rewarding and challenging experiences I have had and I loved every second of it. The cast, crew, and crowds were some of the best ever.
Since 2003, when I did my first show, Nina Network News, the charity component has been one of the most important pieces of my shows. This component has come in many forms, from the XXXposed Strip Benefit to the closing number and it’s tips being dedicated to an organization. These shows have raised considerable funds for Columbus AIDS Task Force and now AIDS Resource Center Ohio, Project: Zero Ohio, The Susan G. Komen Foundation, Project Open Hand, Camp Sunrise, The Trevor Project, Broadway Cares:Equity Fights AIDS, The Columbus Stompers, The Human Rights Campaign, Stonewall Columbus, CLGSA, Freedom To Marry Ohio, among many others. Your countless hard-earned dollars have been crumpled, balled up, and thrown on the stage for amazing causes and charity. You sit there and laugh and drink long after the show is over to help us reach a goal of being able to make a difference. It is one of those things that make this city I proudly call home absolutely amazing.
With NINA DOES CBUS, I worked with so many different people and organizations who all were connected, in some fashion or another, to charity and this city. In the vision of the show, to really celebrate Columbus and finish this love letter, I wanted the organizations to represent some of the great things about this unique city and the people who said “YES!” to working with a 6’7″ drag queen and not batting a lash. To honor these individuals, an organization was chosen and a donation will be made to an organization on their behalf.

A little over a year ago, Randy, Steve, and I sat down to talk about the opportunity of making a difference in the fight against HIV and AIDS. Long story short, that is how Project: Zero Ohio got its start. We have launched some amazing products with the help of great local artisans and tonight will be no exception as we launch our next beautiful product, the Project:Zero Ohio Coffee Sleeve, created by AmyD.
The event will take place at The Candle Lab in the Short North, 751 N. High St Columbus, Ohio 43215, from 6 to 9 pm! I will be there along ith Dr. Sharma, Steve Weaver, Megan Green, and the newest member of our PZO family, AmyD! Candles, soaps, coffee sleeves all available for your holiday shopping!
