Western Sydney drag queens came together celebrating the 23rd Annual DIVA Awards at The Roundhouse – Kensington.
OMG! After being nominated six times I, Beverly Buttercup, finally won ”Queen Of Hearts" DIVA Award 2013! It's been fabulous to have won three time in 21 years of doing drag, and it's a great way to go out. I have decided, in 2014, that I will be going into semi-retirement after doing drag for 21 years.
I will now focus on being co-ordinator for my social events, charity events and community radio program ”Queer Out West 89.3fm” as a boy and leaving the performing up to the young ones.
It was also nice to be shortlisted for a nomination for an "Honour Award 2013” in the Media/Arts/Entertainment category.
I have always said that it's not about winning, it's about being acknowledged for what you do. This is a prime example that if you work hard you can achieve anything. Not many people in Western Sydney get acknowledged for their contribution and achievements and it great to see that change is in the air.

Which Western Sydney Drag Queens got up close and personal in a disabled toilet (rather than the car park) at DIVA? One of them had toilet paper stuck to their shoe for most of the night after farting a hole in the rear of her gown, ducking into a cubicle and pulling a spare skirt out of her purse of wonders!
In other gossip, I'm a big believer in KARMA! What goes around comes around! Drag, to me, is all about community and forging friendships. If you kick people and screw people over on the way up - don't expect friends on the way down - like one Queen has found out - now her bookings are all but slipping away. Get out of Western Sydney if you can't be nice to others that got you there in the first place. Although Drag Queens may be "bitchy" there is no place for real bitches. I really won't hold back anymore regarding those who don't respect others.
