OMG ... So much as happened in the last four weeks where will I start? Heaven’s opening night "Drag -EU-Vision" and my 49th birthday went off with a bang on 19th March.
A few changes will be made Who will go and who will stay and why... before our next dance on the 21st May with a NEW Production show ? And a new shows cast at Heaven Social Dance ? Just to keep up with the reality of things !! BUT something NEW & EXCITING is coming to Heaven... Some big NEWS to be announced after 9th Birthday/Charity night in July to give patrons more time to dance the night away,
Just as we celebrate Easter weekend and recover from overdoseing on chocolate ... SAD NEWS breaks after 14 years of supporting Western Sydney the fabulous multi-award winner MAXI SHIELD will no longer be heard on the airwaves in Western Sydney, leaving the Queer Out West 89.3fm radio program after 14 years in March in pursuit of something big & fabulous. A BIG thank you from the bottom of my heart, Maxi I will be forever grateful .
Moving forward Drags to Bitches has been selling out in clubs across Western Sydney. If you haven't seen it yet I recommend you buy a ticket and see it in its current form. Mmmm on the 7th May at the Campbelltown R.S.L , 28th May at Ryde Eastwood & The ACT (Canberra) on 18th June. WHO are busy girl 'GIRLS'? www.dragtobitches.com.au
Mhmmm it got me thinking! There have been so many awesome social events in the 24 years of me doing drag in the West, I feel like I'm the only person trying to hold the community social events together. In saying that there is not that many social events left in our community so if the opportunity comes up please support them. Coming up this weekend (16th April) we have The Palms West Social Dance at Coolibah Hotel, Merrylands With the Fabulous "RU BELLA" from 7pm • entry $10 • Show 9:30pm ish, be early or you could miss on the excitement and be forced to do karaoke downstairs lol..
A quick reminder most social events are not-for-profit organizations which organize social events in the community to provide a safe place for the GLBTI community, to socialize and raise a little bit of money along the way for great organizations in the gay community. So if you have the opportunity get out and check out social events like : Heaven Social Dance , Palms West , The Polly’s Club , Unity Wollongong & The Three Sisters Social Group in Blue Mountains ... Because they might just become a memory like all the other fabulous nights that have come and gone in our community. so people need to make more of an effort.
In other exciting news, Queer Out West 89.3fm will celebrate 15 years of broadcasting to the gay community on the radio and on the Internet and will now have a SPECIAL GUEST every Monday at 10:30pm and will also include the fabulous Rob Manser from ''Guide to Gay'' on the 2nd & 4th Monday at 11pm & Jeremy Smith with “What's hot in movies” on the 3rd Monday at 11pm, and continuing their ongoing support Acon & Mardi Gras will also be on the show, what more could you ask for in a community radio ? So why not join the gang every Monday night from 10pm-midnight for a good laugh, camp music and all the local gossip !! LISTEN LIVE ON 89.3FM OR ON DEMAND GO TO OUR WEBSITE : www.queeroutwest.com
I spy with my little eye something beginning with D? Did one or more show cast members QUIT because of rude an appreciative patrons ?? ... Did an up-and coming queen have something to do with somebody quitting the radio show or is it just too technical? Will a very successful drag production show be forced to make some changes later this year because of big personalities, greed and slowly burning out from being overworked !!! OMFG Not all good things last forever lol other gossip there could be another ongoing GLBTI Night in Western Sydney On Every Friday Night later this Year OMFG.
Until next time (11th May) Stay gorgeous!
