Ho ho homo, it's Christmas time again.
Are we just being jolly or talking about the stage acts? Ho Ho – who knows?!
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 . 2014 will see me celebrating Christmas with my son now living with me and will not do the whole family thing due to work commitments this year . OMFG. Will it be all turkey and pudding, or will it be just boring?
One good thing has come out of December and that was the World Aids Day Red Party #4 at the last Kaleidoscope Social Dance at the Parramatta Golf Club. We raised $2073 on the night, which went directly to ACON. I would like to say a big Thank You to the 15 performers and the 3 fabulous hosts Pandora Box & Geoff Field (2DayFm) + Me. It was our biggest night ever with over 150 people attending the Parramatta Golf Club. Also a big thank you to my partner in crime Ian Stumbles for helping me on the night and keeping me calm on the night. Hopefully this will be a sign of 2015 and patrons will continue to support social nights in Western Sydney that give back to the gay community.
By now most people will know that we have reduced the amount of social dances to one Social Dance, with Heaven returning on the 24th January with myself looking for some new talent to perform at our social nights in Western Sydney and give Western Sydney queens a place to perform. We present "Audition 4 Your Heavenly Diva's" on this night in January we will be looking for our show cast to represent western Sydney in 2015.. Drag Queens and Drag Kings mainly from Western Sydney will be allowed to audition with cash prizes on the night and paid gigs for the 4 finalists. This will encourage developing their drag and performance skills in a one off night on the 24th January. For Terms & Condition please go to our website www.heavensocialdance.com
Whilst on this subject I do not do drag for a living as I have a full time job and my first priority will always be to the GLBTI community providing safe environments, raise awareness and money as Heaven and Kaleidoscope have done over the years raising over $21,550 for ACON & The Haven in Western Sydney. I really hope that I can continue to do this in 2015 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, A very small entertainment budget. On average we will need now 70 people to attend every heaven dance otherwise it is not practical to run it as then will only be one ongoing dance in 2015..
Which western Sydney drag queen boyfriend needs dancing lessons after head-butting her on the dance floor and spit her eye open?! (She will definitely need more make up when dating this one! Lol)
It will be very interesting to see how many of my drag friends stay my friends in 2015 because I am unable to give them all paid work now. Time will tell! lol
