Esera Tuaolo "Mr. Aloha"

Aug 20, 2018 - Sep 2, 2018

Esera Tavai Tuaolo is of Samoan ancestry and was born in Honolulu, Hawaii. He grew up in poverty on a banana farm in Waimanalo. Many of his meaningful moments while growing up and playing football can be found in his autobiography, Alone in the Trenches: My Life as a Gay Man in the NFL.

Tuaolo had a successful football career for thirteen years. He played at Oregon State University, and then in the NFL for nine years for the Green Bay Packers, Minnesota Vikings, Jacksonville Jaguars, Atlanta Falcons, and Carolina Panthers. He was named Pac-10 Conference First Team twice; was a finalist for the Lombardi Award and the Outland Trophy; won the Morris Trophy in 1989 (awarded to the best defensive lineman in the Pac-10); was the first Rookie in Packer history to start all sixteen games in a season; and he reached the Super Bowl with the Atlanta Falcons.

After retiring from the NFL, Tuaolo came out as gay in 2002 and began a career of advocating for the LGBT community. To combat homophobia, he has worked with different sports organizations, including the NFL and the Gay and Lesbian Athletics Foundation; has made and continues to make appearances on television programs such as The Oprah Winfrey Show and Good Morning America; testified before the legislature; and continues to speak at colleges and corporations around the country about explicit and implicit homophobia.

Tuaolo is also a singer. He has sung the National Anthem at sporting events, including NFL, MLB, NHL, and NBA games, and at the opening ceremony of the Gay Games VII. He has also released and performed his own music, and now continues to write, record, and perform music throughout the country.

Tuaolo is a father of two twins, Mitchell and Michele. In addition to his advocacy and singing, he cooks professionally and runs an anti-bullying program called Hate in Any Form is Wrong.

A “must see in P-town” raves the NY Post. In her all new show, Miss Richfield 1981 is “Born Again” finding new religion to bring our divided world together. With brand new songs, videos and unique audience activities, Miss R celebrates all faiths in 2018 at her new home at the Pilgrim House. Get your tickets early—most nights sell out! Atheists welcome.

Dedicating her life to the friendly citizens and responsible merchants of her hometown of Richfield Minnesota (“where butter is a spice and gravy is a beverage”), Miss Richfield 1981 is fast becoming one of America’s national treasures. Her live performances have received critical acclaim with The New York Post declaring Miss Richfield 1981 “the must-see act in Provincetown.” and Twincities.com noting “in these divided times, Miss R is tonic—and gin—for the soul”. In addition to selling out venues each year in New York, Chicago, San Francisco, Philadelphia, Atlanta, South Florida, and Minneapolis, Miss R continues to fill Pilgrim House in Provincetown, MA nightly each summer, and tours with Atlantis Events cruise ships and resorts.

Miss Richfield’s national appeal includes riotous appearances on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno”, “Today” on NBC, “Cake Boss” on TLC, and “Watch What Happens Live” on Bravo. Currently, she is part of the cast of “Talk Show The Game Show” on TruTV, and a television spokesperson for Orbitz. Additionally, she serves as a national brand ambassador for the city of Palm Springs.

What makes Miss Richfield unique is the combination of midwestern sensibilities with an off-the-page humor, stemming from her creator Russ King. A former journalist and Minnesota native, King created the character with a rich history that begins with her life-long goal of being crowned beauty queen of her first-ring suburb of Minneapolis.

Miss R has recently purchased a refurbished Apple IIe computer and entered the digital age. She invites you to join like her on Facebook, follow her on Instagram, and watch her on YouTube. And be sure to visit her at missrichfield.com where she keeps a calendar of events and shares words of wisdom, such as her favorite Bible verse: “It’s important to be nice, but it’s nicer to be important”.
