Blamie Forret is on a roll - to say the least. She swept SFGN’s Best Of contest this year winning a whopping six awards and taking the runner-up spot in a seventh.

She brought home the top prize for Best Artist/Musician; Best Drag Performer; Best Local Entertainer; and Best Comedian. Her weekly gig, Blamies Boozie Bingo, won Best Activity for Tourists and while her Trivia Happy Hour won Best Ongoing event as well taking the runner-up spot for Best Hidden Gem.

“This is my first year officially doing drag as a full-time career, and I’m a hard worker. I work 7 days a week doing what I love. I have a fire lit under my hip pads that’s not going out anytime soon, and that’s why I won,” she said. “My two-year sobriety also contributed to me being able to focus on my career. But as much of a hard worker and funny girl that I am, I couldn’t have won all these awards without the support of my fans. People say, you have drinking buddies, then you have your true friends. Other Queens have their drunk audience, I have my true fans. Their support means the world to me. Love you all!”

And shes not slowing down anytime soon.

Im expanding just like my hips pads! I have a new event coming to Ocean Drive making me the first queen to have her own solo event on Ocean Drive,she said. The new gig is Blamies Boozie Spelling Bee. Its also the first adult Drag spelling bee in Miami.

Forret is ready to make Miami gay again.She takes pride in creating unique events, some of which are outside of traditional LGBT spaces.

Im the first queen to start a regular drag event in Brickell at Tobacco Road,she said. I pride myself on creating unique events in Miami to combat the typical two-minute marbled lipsyncs scattered throughout the city.

Forret is a true entertainer and loves making folks laugh.

I absolutely love what I do, and I love being Miamis Comedy Queen,she said.
