FIFTY: THE ULTIMATE F-WORD!

So Mardi Gras has come and gone…  after 16 times marching in the parade, I made the decision, after well-made plans backfired on me (and being the lazy old Queen I am) to finally front up to the parade and party as… you guessed it – a boy!


I decided for the third time in 25 years of being a drag queen that enough was enough. Was I scared? You bet. But boy was I mistaken. I have mixed feelings about Mardi Gras as I didn't see much of the parade because I avoided the rain lol .. Then off to the party I went. The Veronica's were pretty good but the rest of the entertainment was a little average and what happened to the two girls that was supposed to perform ?? I ended up leaving at 4am  and was in bed by 6,that's an early night! Maybe it's a case of me just being a little bit old and my legs started to kill me and let's not talk about Lola and Danger's feet so glad i did not walk in the parade. I actually enjoyed myself a little bit more just as a boy. Over 10,000 performers took part in the parade to help celebrate 39 years of Mardi Gras…the best night ever at a MG party... I hope you all had a blast too!

This month I celebrate 25 years of doing drag, meaning I'm “technically” 50 years young! OMG it's my birthday  - the big five 0  in March = ''YUCK"… That means i will reduce my responsibilities and push it onto my drag daughters and other high-profile queens in the community.

Oh how time flies! In this time I've seen so many venues come and go, we've lost many in Western Sydney as well as the City. Even knowing what goes into a social night – I couldn’t imagine running a full time venue – but many have tried and I congratulate them. Our increasing patronage at the HEAVEN SOCIAL DANCE  in Western Sydney means we made the right decision to move to a new club with the first dance in February being a huge success. I am really looking forward to the second dance on the 1st April at Mounties Bowling Club Fairfield from 6:30pm - 12:30 , Entry $10 , Shows 9:30 & 10:30 With PopUp Drag Upsize  Hosted By LayDee KinMee ,  If you want to take part in our pop-up drag  – please register with LayDee, before April So you can be in the run for cash prizes (Valued $200).  For more information go to our website (Click on What's On)  www.heavensocialdance.com 

Newsflash !!  V-Bar  at the Coolibah Hotel,  Merrylands. Brought to by Victoria A Bitch '' CANCELLED ''  after its very first dance on 20 January. The announcement was made two days before the second dance in February by co-ordinator Victoria A Bitch as post: (Due to very little interest in v bar a verdict has been made and will be closing its doors in February . It was one of the hardest things to do. But firstly i must find myself again and i am shattered and in tears whilst i write this)  ... It's very sad to hear that you've given up after only one dance, but I hope you find yourself ok gorgeous. When we first started Heaven Social Dance for the first year we were only getting 60  people and you need to get performers which will do it for a few dances for nothing and then pay them when you get busier but I totally understand where you're coming from there is a lot of stress involved and a lot of costs going to running an event like this we are so lucky that we have the support of our venue that do not charge us room Hire, we only have the cost of Dj & a small entertainment budget. Maybe someone else might step up and take over running it because I really believe two nights in Western Sydney would work.. but in saying that I Want to wish you all the best in the future with whatever you choose to do that makes you happy :Bx

In other exciting news, free events & entertainment in Western Sydney include:

By now you know that we have put Queer Out West to rest on 2 November I spat the dummy and cancelled the program for many different reasons? After Guide To Gay and the gay newspaper, SX, ran a story on the program I was inundated with feedback in regards to the need to continue with the program so I met with some of the presenters and ask them what they like to continue doing the program in a different format as I (Beverly) did not want to return to the studio weekly after doing the program for 15 years I feel new people need to step up.

 

So former Out West & Proud 89.3Fm and Queer TV Presenter  Pandora Box & Kitty Puss have agreed to come in fortnightly so I can have some time out.

DRAG GOSSIP:  

 

K is for Karma what goes around comes around, remember that Girls and Boys not mentioning any names  it has happened to all of us in the past. I could also say people in Glass Houses shouldn't throw stones. Being a bully and a hypocrite and spreading rumours does not make you popular...

So for now I leave you with my resolutions - what's yours?  

(1) Discover who my real friends are.

(2) Do whatever makes me happy, And be with whoever makes me smile.

(3) Put me first this year 

 

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

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

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.
