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.

Based out of San Francisco, BEBE SWEETBRIAR is the Omni Present Drag Chanteuse. As an entertainer and hostess, BeBe can be scene every week hosting and performing at countless events and parties in the San Francisco. One of the few drag personalities to sing live while performing, BeBe has literally graced every notable stage in San Francisco, bridging many gay sub-community gaps. She has also been the opening act for Destiny’s Child Kelly Rowland, "Ugly Betty’s" Alec Mapa and Dance Diva Kristine W. Adding recording artist to her list of performance accomplishments in 2008 with the release of her first single "Save Me", Ms. Sweetbriar will soon release her fifth dance single in 2012 called "Show It Off"..
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.
