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

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
