It's celebration time!

Wow this month The Polly's club celebrate 54 years supporting the LGBTQI Community, over the years Polly's have donated thousands of dollars back to community organizations because that’s what they do support the community. This month they return to the Roundhouse at Kensington to put on a birthday party like you’ve never seen before Polly's will present "The Bitches Of Broadway!"

Produced by Sue Allen a long time member. The Polly's show cast have been rehearsing for weeks to put on an amazing show, this is one birthday party not to be missed. Tickets available online $35 or on the door for $45. Unlike their Marrickville dances this is NOT a BYO event or are you able to bring your own nibbles. Come out and support The Pollys Club, a not for profit organisation and one of the longest running LGBTQI social clubs...

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Polly's committee for donating money to keep ''Pride Radio 89.3fm Every Sunday from 6pm - 8pm www.prideradio893fm.com organisations like Polly's only exist because the community members support Polly's check out their official website for up-and-coming dances they do five a year and give so much back to the community so if you have the opportunity go and check some of them out normally at the Marrickville Town hall.

www.thepollysclub.com.au

So much has come and gone in Western Sydney and in the city so people need to get out and support social events like Heaven Social Dance , The Polly's club, Unity Wollongong & The 3 Sisters Social Group in the blue mountains the only ones left running on a regular basis, over the years they’re stuck it out through the bad and the good so please support these organisations that give back to the community because without you they wouldn’t exist

With the growing amount of acceptance also comes change with a lot of LGBTQ venues either closing down or don't exist anymore. We no longer need to travel into the city for a safe refuge as our local pub and clubs are now so accepting and we can hang out with all of our friends both gay and straight and in venues much closer to home, and Western Sydney is BOOMING at the moment with drag trivia’s and bingos popping up everywhere.

Portia Turbo is the head queen at the ever popular and expanding TURBO TRIVIA & TURBO BALLS and writes up a fabulous variety of questions and games each week for you to enjoy. You aint never seen trivia quite like this. 
It's Free to play and all the venues have excellent kitchens, so bring your friends for a fun and inexpensive night out.

Monday: At The Overlander, Cambridge Gardens (Penrith) = Bingo 7:30pm With April Fools.
Tuesdays: At Parramatta RSL = Trivia 7pm With Portia Turbo.
Tuesdays: At Penrith Hotel = Trivia 7pm With LayDee KinMee.
Wednesdays: At Mounties Triglav (in St Johns Park) = Trivia 7pm With LayDee KinMee.

Also going very well out west is Heaven Social Dance…. WOW...

Hopefully we can get that figure up and over $35,000 by the end of the year with your support, so please come along and support us at HEAVEN SOCIAL DANCE.

BUTTERCUP GOT PRIDE!

So Mardi Gras has come and gone…  after 17 times marching in the parade, I made the decision, after well-made plans backfired on me (and being the lazy old Queen I am) to finally front up to the parade and party as… you guessed it – a boy!

I decided for the third time in 26 years of being a drag queen that enough was enough. Was I scared? You bet. But boy was I mistaken. I have mixed feelings about Mardi Gras as I didn't see much of the parade because too many people .. Then off to the party I went. CHER were pretty awesome considering  she is 71 ... and It was nice to some of my idols in the LEGENDS OF DRAG Show at midnight. BUT the rest of the entertainment was a little average considering the party “Sold Out“ and it was the 40th anniversary I thought they would’ve been a lot more!
I ended up leaving at 5am and was in bed by 6am Maybe it's a case of me just being a little bit old and my legs started to kill me and let's not talk about the legend Marcia Monterey walking group with some of western Sydney‘s legends walking in the parade in some of the fabulous costumes Marcia made over the years I honestly don’t think I could walk in the parade ever again it’s a long day and night so glad i did not walk in the parade. I actually enjoyed myself a little bit more just as a boy. Over 10,000 performers took part in the parade to help celebrate 40 years of Mardi Gras…the best night ever at a MG party... I hope you all had a blast too!


This month I celebrate 26 years of doing drag, meaning I'm “technically” 51 years young! OMG it's my birthday = ''YUCK" That means i will reduce my responsibilities and push it onto my drag daughters and other high-profile queens in western community.


I’M SO EXCITED to announce that I'll be doing my own radio program PRIDE RADIO 89.3Fm from Sunday, 1 April and then every Sunday from 18:00 to 20:00 With weekly special guest in the studio + someone from ACON fortnightly at 7:15Pm and Jeremy Smith with what's hot and what's not in movies fortnightly at 7:15pm. The program will be supporting the LGBTQ community I really think it's important that we have a gay radio program on the radio on the Internet and on your phone as there's lots of other programs out there but nothing in Sydney on the radio. (but there might be one more program coming to the radio will have more info in April) ... With that said I am looking for people or companies that are able to donate money to keep the program on air as we are required to pay for 2hr air time yearly ($960) with all new application for the program at 2GLF 89.3fm in 2018 So if you can help out that would be awesome just SMS me 0433232425 your name your number and how you can help for more info check out our brand new website : www.prideradio893fm.com

The fabulously which is Fair Day Sunday 18th February , started as soon as we exited the car and were approached by a young man who offered us a "service" in the laneway in glebe a couple years ago .. considering it was the second time in 19 years that I have attended Fair Day as a boy and I still nearly got lucky, he made me feel like a dirty old man so we ran off to Park to join in the festivities... and this year fair day will RETURN to Victoria Park, City Rd Camperdown From 10am-8pm, just one of thousands the people sitting on a blanket in front of the main stage. It's a sign that I really am a nobody, nobody will recognised me or will they after being plastered all over the Liverpool & Fairfield Champion (the local paper) last year in and out of DRAG !! OMG !!

When Fair Day is over you know the Parade is soon to follow on 03 March . After walking and working the parade for 17 years, this year be any different lol As last year I watched the parade and enjoyed it so much now I'm getting older, it seems the route gets longer... despite offers to be part of a float, this will be the third year in a row that I will be watching the parade from VIP Area and dashing off to the party with my partner in crime to see CHER and some of the legends of drag .. my peers :) I just had too much fun last year at the Party out of drag so this year will be half boy half drag lol . I'd like to see more floats and social groups from the West be involved this year for the 40 anniversary for Mardi Gras, it seems everyone splits into other groups at Mardi Gras time when it should be a time that we unite? www.mardigras.org.au

draggossipWhich Western Sydney drag queen now feels the need to attack me/heaven just to promote something she's doing!! Last time I pay her for anything gorgeous.

In other gossip, which former Western Sydney drag superstar has been BANNED from all the Asian fabric shops?

Apparently, she was caught putting things in her bag while she was walking around the shop. Oh no!

Which Western Sydney Drag star might have bitten off more than she can chew by working up to 6 nights a week and is now sick? She is due to fly out the country at the of the month and then there is The Voice or should I say no voice at the moment! (Hope you get better asap!)

Until next time Gorgeous, BB  www.beverlybuttercup.com

draggossipDRAG GOSSIP

OMG which former Western Sydney (drag) queen is being chased by the taxation Department for unpaid taxes, with another Sydney drag queen being monitored for receiving payments and not declaring their extra income from drag ....K is for Karma what goes around comes around, remember that Girls and Boys not mentioning any names  it has happened to all of us in the past. I could also say people in Glass Houses shouldn't  throw stones.  Being a bully and a hypocrite and spreading rumours does not make you popular...

 

So for now I leave you with my resolutions - what's yours?  ? 

(1) Discover who my real friends are.

(2) Do whatever makes me happy, And be with whoever makes me smile.

(3) Put me first this year

(4) Try and stress less ...

 

Until next time gorgeous! (15FEB) Luv BB    www.beverlybuttercup.com

Ho Ho Ho! (Why thank you Santa, YES I am)

Are we just being jolly or talking about the stage acts?

As some of you may know, I have never been one for Christmas. I've never had a real reason to celebrate, and the thought of doing Christmas spots made me cringe...

However, this year the tables have turned and I'm feeling a little excited, just like Big Kev. A drama free Christmas... Hopefully I don't get a sudden heart attack from all the excitement lol.
2017 will see me celebrating Christmas with my son now living with me and do the whole family thing OMFG. Will it be all turkey and pudding, or will it just be boring?

One good thing has come out of this year is that Heaven Social Dance is that we raised over $ 24,108 since first starting and that going to The Western Suburbs Haven Inc & ACON. This money will be used to help support and promote the ENDING HIV.. I would like to say a big thank you to all of the performers that supported us this year as well as the Heaven Committee: Ian Stumbles, Greg Robert & LayDee KinMee. Also a big thank to all our regulars that have supported us throughout the year. Hopefully this will be a sign of what’s to come in 2018 and patrons will continue to support Heaven at Mounties Bowling Club – Fairfield. It is so great to be able to give back to the L.G.B.T.Q community.

Its looks to a BIG YEAR next year in the Western Sydney with more drag queens working in the RSL and Clubs, hotels and Social Dance's providing entertainment like Bingo , Trivia , Drag Shows and productions for LGBTQI people. With less people travelling to the city NOW the west is going off in 2018 here a list some of the things happening:

Heaven Social Dance
Turbo Trivia
Turbo Bingle Balls
Gendebender Bingo
Naughty Numbers
Sandyoke Karaoke
Showtime
The 3 Sisters Social Group
Drag To Bitches
Prada's Priscilla's

OMG I told you so much happening in the west just search for them on Facebook or Google
Whilst on this subject, I do not do drag for a living as I have a full-time job. My first priority will always be to the LGBTI community; providing safe environments, raising awareness and money as Heaven and Kaleidoscope have done over the years. They’ve raised more than $31,971 for ACON and The Haven in Western Sydney. I really hope that I can continue to do this in 2018 with your help. 

Please support our nights in Western Sydney.  Please be aware that these social dances are not-for-profit social nights with all proceeds after initial costs being donated to charity.  Initial costs are function fees, DJ hire and a small entertainment budget.  



 

 

DRAG GOSSIP

Its official am officially DEAD!!!
My drag daughter has taken over with so much work on her plate, I don’t know how she copes. She will be performing at The Blue Mountain next year with the 3 Sisters Social Group announcing "Laydee KinMee and her Dancing Boys" will be the face of the Australia Day Dance Party and the June long weekend Dance Party & Costume Ball... 

And in other gossip, which former Western Sydney competition winner is in trouble with the Police for not topping up her opal card and giving Police too much lip? Looks like performing on her knees may have won her a dodgy comp, but it won’t let her slip away from criminal activity.

Until next time (12JAN) gorgeous Merry Christmas and a Gay New Year.
Be safe.
Love BB

Drag Gossip

As you all know - I'm a big believer of KARMA!

What goes around comes around! A certain drag queen is name dropping to get bookings and undercutting to take other drag queens bookings and they have not been around very long and most likely won't last very long ..''REMEMBER YOU PAY FOR WHAT YOU GET"   (It's the same old storhy all over again and just a new face who does not know their rep will be riuined in a milli second!)

And with another queen/diva lol .. Ummmmm Cheater Cheater where'd you meet her, what western sydney drag queen can't keep it in her pants for 5 days cheated on her partner but then again what happens in Golum country stays in the land of the long white... "cloud" unless there's a trip to the doctor after lol where'd you meet her?  #meow


Until next time gorgeous! (12DEC)
