DRAG GOSSIP

Which former drag queen was once known as a rose, but now a bitch. Living up to her new and much more socially accurate name, has she gone way too far? After several cat fights, and then threatening to kill her fellow contestants in the group chat of a Western Sydney Talent Quest. Is this the case of a poor victims social media account been hacked, or is she the perpetrator? Will she bloom into a fresh new rose, or rot into a sour old bitch. Only time will tell. I told you it's all happening out west .. WoW, are you ready for more? Which Western Sydney Drag Queen has quit a multi award winning drag show after 2 years for the second time. First time due to a lack of bookings, and now due to her pursuing more financially stable drag and makeup work. With so many cast members coming and going, mirror mirror on the wall, what will the future hold? Thank god I have a full time job and don't have to worry about things like this anymore. Will she now learn the difference between work collages and friends? Will her former work collages continue to be her friend? Sometimes it can get hard to distinguish the difference between work collages and friends.. Also The Drag Industry Variety Awards will not be on this year in October. But sources tell me it may be on in December due to a lack of money in the bank.. More info to come in next month column on 12Oct ..
Until next time stay gorgeous :

Spring has Sprung in Western Sydney

bevspring

It all seems to happen in Spring in Western Sydney… like bunnies breeding in the burrows, there are events bounding out of my wazzoo... and its like a bunny eating a carrot at this time of year, so lets start off with taking a big nibble out of one of my personal favourites… #HEAVEN…

heaven bb blogHeaven Social Dance

19th September

The Heavenly Divas in it’s current incarnation brings the FINAL production show for 2015 at 10:30 pm... there will be some big announcements made in regards to the future of Heaven at the NBC Sports Club in 2016. As much as we have tried to keep it all fair and cheap as possible, we will have to pay a function fee in 2016 which will drive the cost up and may need to look for sponsorship next year to keep running HSD in 2016. We have tried our hardest to bring the dances to you… but do you know anyone fabulous that might want to assist us all in securing the room for HSD???


As y’all know, Heaven Social Dance Is a NOT For profit organisation with all proceeds (After Initial Costs) going to the Western Suburbs Haven or ACON… we don’t do this for profit, so anyone who can help us with costs, we will love you long time! (hehe)

if you have any ideas, please hit me up via email or my GTG profile. I would love your feedback.

 

Onto positive things… The 9th annual Parramatta Pride Picnic will be held on Sunday, 27 September , 11am - 4pm Hosted by our home grown ladies, LayDee KinMee & Portia Turbo.

Also singing live on the day is Lisa Crouch, Maria Temelkos, Carmelo Munzone, Natalie Colavtio, Koko D'Vyne and bringing up the woofs at Doggywood is non other than head bitch, Pandora Box (At 1pm).

Over 20 Community stalls and a barbecue raising money for The Western Suburbs Haven, gaYmes and much more at the new location on the river, Parramatta Riverbank Foreshore Reserve, its going to be a huge year… Guidetogay.com’s fabulous partners – Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras will be there – so pop along and say hi to the team... they are lovely.

Remember to make sure you walk along the reserve as its not in the "park" as it was a few years back… just look for me, I will be dressed as a boy, watching the shows, having fun and holding court alongside the river… its going to be an amazing day. Make sure you upload you pictures to Guidetogay.com either via the website or the app.
 

International Lesbian Day Picnic is on Monday the 5th October at Doonside.

Nurrangingy Reserve, Knox Rd Doonside from 10am – so grab your gals and friends and pop on down to share the love for International lesbian day… it is actually celebrated around the world annually on 8 October but our locals are celebrating on the 5th… as it’s a public holiday. Celebrate lesbian culture, family & friends in a fun filled day with games, food and heaps more. For more info on the event please email : This email address is being protected from spambots.

An icon of greater Sydney is throwing out the Euro gauntlet… our mates at The Polly's Club will present 'Eurovision Trash' on the 10th October at the Marrickville Town Hall from 7pm -12am

Prizes for best dressed show at 9:30pm and music will be provided by the incredible Jimmy Dee.

Be early if you want a good seat or a good position on the dancefloor to get your Euro-on. Details of the event are in our What’s on Guide.

Also something else to add to the diary "Drag To Bitches" takes on Western Sydney at Mounties on Friday, 24 October from 8pm. The most extravagant show of the year it's a show not to be missed with something for everyone featuring some of Western Sydney's best performance, from LayDee KinMee, Ophelia shaft , Marilyn Mootrub (Just to name a few) take it from me I've seen it twice and it's an awesome night out ... This night is extra special as they club is raising money for Breast Cancer’s Pink Ribbon. I also hear there may be a NEW fabulous array of costumes in the new finale number – I can’t wait to see it again. Want to come with me???

DRAG GOSSIP


I never understand why some Queens don’t get a good thing when they have it… even if it’s a top show cast, why would they be above anyone else? Gotta Bitch when you’re on top? Then you don’t deserve it. EVERYONE is replaceable, especially if you’re a real DRAG about it. The show will go on, and if you are not there, the public don’t care… drama to make trouble isn’t welcome. Shows will prevail and good people who look after their counterparts will always win. Its time to get rid of the users, talented or not… drama needs to go away.

Social media sometimes ruins a good thing… if your bitching in “public” don’t think it wont get back to those people who are responsible for booking you… no one wants to work with a queen who is trouble. Easy is as easy does girlfriend.

Thank God I have a full-time job and do not look at drag as an income any more – I really can't handle the drama of those gals fighting for jobs…omg (oh my drag) it’s a bit scary.

If you do see one of our Western Sydney Girls out and about… either in the clubs and venues out west or in the city – please show them your support… they have broken past the point of drama and have shown creativity as performer that’s worth celebrating, take piccies, film them and upload the to our groups on Guidetogay.com – I would love to see them from your point of view.

Until next time stay gorgeous :
