Meet: Scandalous Divas

At first glance, I thought this was a drag queen group in Wilton Manors. So I had to contact the founder, Alisa Hamilton, and find out what was the story. She chuckled when I asked her, and she responded saying that the name underlines the group’s mission: Be bold, creative, and unique. Sure, divas have the connotation of being a bit of pain in the WHOHA, but Hamilton assured me that diva origins was all about being strong and classy. So what is this group all about? Fun yet serious. Launched in June 2013, Scandalous Divas was built to provide positive entertainment as a vehicle to educate and drive awareness on serious, sensitive issues – bullying, suicide prevention and domestic violence. Now, that’s quite a feat. To tackle these big topics, Hamilton’s approach is light and fun. Take her word for it.

“We feature live entertainment from all forms of the arts: live band, singers, spoken word/ poetry, and creative dance,” she says. Events called “Scandalous Sundays,” are held on the last Sunday of every month. The event is an official sanctioned event through Broward 100 – Celebrating the art of Community, and is part of the historical Calendar 100 event listing. Each event is themed to also generate momentum leaving the attending audience with self-motivation, inspiration or a social responsibility to "do more" than just exist.  A majority of the comments from guests and attendees are: "This night was a healing to my soul". When you can reach the depths of a person's soul or essence then you are on the right path. Many other comments are listed on my website under the Latest News section for your perusal should you need to see what else the general public is saying.
When: Last Sunday of Every Month.
Next Show Date: Sunday, August 31, 2014
Where: Miramar Cultural Center - Arts Park
Address: 2400 Civic Center Place, Miramar, FL 33025
Time: 7 p.m. to midnight
