Give It To Me Santa ! Ho Ho Ho

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. 

 

2016 will see me celebrating Christmas with my son now living with me and doing 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 $17,210 dollars since first starting at heaven going to 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 performers that supported us this year and Ian Stumbles, Greg aka Grace Lou & LayDee KinMee.

 

Also a big thank to all our regulars that have supported us. Hopefully this will be a sign of things to come and patrons will continue to support Heaven at it's new venue (Mounties Bowling Club - Fairfield) in 2017 so we can continue raising funds for charity and keep giving back and to give Western Sydney queens a place to perform.

 

Heaven social dance will present PopUp Drag Upsize at our by monthly dance's staring on 04 February then following every second month on first Saturday of the month in 2017 

 

Drag Queens and Drag Kings mainly from Western Sydney will be able to come along and pop on stage and WIN SOME CASH!!

DRAG GOSSIP

Its official - I am officially DEAD!!  My drag daughter has taken over as entertainment co-ordinator Laydee KinMee at Heaven in 2016/2017.

 

Don't get me started about the Palms West Social Dance which will finish on 10 December (or will it?) with rumours/renaming next year someone new will take it over?

How much did they raise over the year for Twenty10 $$$$ (TBC) ...  hmmm

 

Time will only tell because I sometimes believe people are complacent and may not support everything remember one day they could be gone! 

 

How many will be left in 2017?  

OMG Heaven next year will turn 10 years old holy shit that means I will be 50 :(  

 

OK It will be very interesting to see how many of my drag friends stay my friends in 2017  because I am unable to give them all paid work now. 

 

Until next time (11JAN) gorgeous Merry Christmas and a Gay New Year.  

Be safe.  Love BB   www.beverlybuttercup.com

Our favourite looks from the Marco Marco Fashion show

Underwear designer and avant guard fashionista, Marco Marco took to the runway this past week with their trademark fashion show featuring a bevvie of trans, drag and cis models. Its always a feast for the eyes, given that the designers offerings cover the various body shapes and sizes in eclectic and vibrant strips, patterns and materials.

We have gathered some of our favourite looks from some of the celeb models on show.

Vanity Faire (Vanity)

One of our good mates in Australia, Vanity STOLE the runway this year, with an incredible shape and style we don't think America has seen before. Totally fierce and fabulous as only Vanity can do... and as some of you know - she is THE Vanity, from Wigs By Vanity (as seen on Drag superstars heads the world over.)

 

 

Ginger Eddie

Eddie Eduardo is pure lickable Hercules in this speedo style pant. The stripes and the eyeliner just make you want to sit at the end of the runway in a trenchcoat. lol. Work those poses Eddie!

 

Raja

She is her own natural style icon, so having Raja on the Marco Marco runway was a real treat. And what an outfit! It's shimmer-tastic. You might remember her from Drag Race or her many youtube web series.

 

Courtney Act

She is the songbird that can turn lipgloss and mascara into FACE, and serve it! Well she is definately serving us this Marco Marco creation. 

Here are some more hot shots from the night including more drag superstars Adele Delano, Alaska Thunderfuck, Detox

 

Check out the entire video from the show on our videos page.

DRAG GOSSIP

It's been one year since she CLUTCHed her ham bag and left the very successful production show to launch her own show one year later !! But it didn't sell out will it last as long as the very successful Drugs to Bitches production show selling out at venues across Sydney!! .. And with the cold weather just around the corner and a lack of work .. venues .. it seems a lot of drag queens are rushing to enter talent quest "RGT" but who will make it through the three-month ordeal to win a $1000 what a fabulous idea free entertainment for three months now that's what I call a marathon talent quest!! Only time will tell gorgeous. Sometimes it's just so hard keeping up with gossip and recently so much is going around. So if you have any gossip email me or message me - Totally confidential gorgeous!!!
