Pride Picnic Goes Out West

Hello, my darlings! Welcome to my latest column - it has been an interesting month and some fab stuff coming up for Western Sydney - so let's get to it and make a difference for our community out west!

Pride Picnic

Sunday 28th October will see the Parramatta River Foreshore explode in Gay Pride with the return of the annual Parramatta Pride Picnic in its 12th year.

Your hosts for the day will be the fabulous Marilyn Mootrub & Pomara Fifth and on the decks DJ Shaft.

There will be activities galore throughout the day including live entertainment, yoga class, book launch, readings, face painting, the rainbow kid’s area, rap artists, the gay & lesbian choir, bands, 35 community stalls, and the Priscilla Ferry (coming from Circular Quay). Various food vendors, Coffee van and a Fully Licensed bar. A special event called "THE GAYMAZING RACE" (where participants race around Parramatta CBD collecting stamps and clues and the WINNERS get prizes). The theme of this year's picnic is '' NO ONE LEFT BEHIND " to reflect the less than favorable response to Marriage Equality last year - we want our community in Western Sydney to know they are not alone, we want to be out and proud and living our best lives in the burbs !!! I really hope people make an effort to come to the PRIDE PICNIC, Riverside Foreshore in Parramatta (Ferry wharf) from 11 am - 5 pm

Get busy on all the socials with the hashtag:  #PARRAPRIDE18.

Heaven Update

Well in other news on 6th October, Heaven Social Dance had one of its quietest nights of the year.
Has our community become COMPLACENT?
Do our patrons believe we are always going to be there?
I understand that there is always going to be other things on but people have to understand we only do 5 dance’s a year, if people can’t attend 3 of them there is no point in us doing it.
We have just locked in all our dates for 2019 and we can only continue to run if we get the numbers to cover the cost of running the event, with all proceeds after initial cost being donated to charity. If we can’t get the numbers there is no point in me taking time off work and stressing and worrying about something other people do not care too much about.

On a personal note I created heaven with my fellow sisters and partners in crime to provide a safe place for the LGBTQI community in Western Sydney, their friends and family to socialise and drag queens to have somewhere to perform but it seems there’s not a lot of loyalty a lot of things have changed.

We have one more dance left at the end of the year it’s for World AIDS Day it will be our last “Red Party #7”.

All proceeds going to ACON so please mark it in your diary 8th December with 3 big shows 8, 9 &10pm hosted by LayDee KinMee, Melicious D’amage and Pomara Fifth with 12 fabulous performance @ Mounties Bowling Club Fairfield from 6 PM to 12 AM. $15 on the door.

In other news!

The Polly’s Club sadly regrets that they have to CANCEL The Rainbow Costume Ball scheduled for 20th October due to a lack of interest and a lack of tickets sales. I am not quite sure what is going on but here’s another case of complacency people want these things, suggest these things but then don’t support them it is really sad because The Polly’s Club for many years has supported many organisations and have donated thousands of dollars to charity I was quite looking forward to the rainbow costume ball it was something different. I think people forget it costs money to run these kind of events I really hope people get behind the Polly's club for their World AIDS Day Dance "Under The Mirror Ball" 1 December @ Marrickville Town Hall tickets available online from 15th October for $25 or on the door for $30 on the night for more info www.thepollyscub.com.au

Show has been produced by my sister in crime at Pride Radio 89.3fm and Polly's Club member Melicious D’amage and from what I have been told the Pollys Girls and boys are going to be working their bits off.

R U - OK?

Ok this Thursday, 13 September is R U OK ? Day. This national day of action is to remind everyone that any day is the day to ASK R U OK !? But I believe every day should be R U Ok day not just one day of the year, to many people are caught up with their own lives or are just too busy to ask if someone is OK until it’s too late, I hope all my friends & family are OK and if any of you are not OK then Buttercup is always here for you anytime you need a FRIEND to chat to. www.ruok.org.au

There may be a RU OK call in to the radio show - so make sure you tune in for a VERY special guest.

 DRAG GOSSIP ; Which Western Sydney Drag Queen did quit a multi award winning drag show after 2 years for the second time. First time due to a lack of bookings, and pursuing more financially stable drag and makeup work, One year on was it worth it?? The Award - Winning show is bigger and better than a year ago , fingers crossed people do not get bored with drag BINGO otherwise she'll be looking for Centrelink.. With so many drag queens now relying on work in local clubs and rsl  doing bingo or trivia I asked the question, Mirror Mirror on the wall, what will the future hold for those that don't have a backup plan ? 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..

Until next time (13OCT) stay gorgeous : Bx  www.beverlybuttercup.com

SMILE AND BE HAPPY

Smile or Silence are two powerful tools. SMILE is the way to solve many problems and SILENCE is the way to avoid many problems... Choice is YOURS to make!? Its helped me so much in the last 12 months just SMILE & keep my mouth shut. (I never said I was good at it lol)

So much has changed with acceptance comes change or maybe just I’ve changed? Change can be a good thing or a bad thing and don’t get me started on politics. Let me pose a question! Do you think Western Sydney still needs LGBTQI events and social nights just for the LGBTQI Community anymore? As we have so much choice and have come a long way to be excepted I remember when starting (drag) 25 years ago we had so many social events as there were not many places the LGBTQI people could go to in Western Sydney but that is not the case anymore there is so much happening in the community I would love your feedback below don’t be shy gorgeoussssssssssss.

I"M SO EXCITED We had 4 fabulous dances at Mounties Bowling Club this year and I want to say a special thank you to everybody who has helped us raise over $30,000 at Heaven Social Dance for The Haven and ACON. With that said I'm proud to announce that we been very lucky to lock in dates for 2019 at Mounties Bowling Club - Fairfield on the second Saturday of every second month starting on 9th February 2019. A special thank you to the Mounties Group for their support and understanding throughout this process , as most people are aware a lot of things have changed and we need to keep up with the changes and we hope everyone will continue to support us at Mounties Bowling Club  and help us provide a safe place for the LGBTQI community and for the local Drag Kings/Queens to have somewhere to perform with some exciting things planned for 2019... www.heavensocialdance.com

THE POLLYS CLUB will present POLLY-TICKLY INCORRECT: Honey, what's this, what's happening, what's with all the dirty talk? Also, what's with the nuns? They seem to have an appreciation for short-cut dresses and curse words. They say the C-word rather well!!   Welcome to Polly-Tickly Incorrect, which is very politically incorrect. It is not recommended for small children, big Trump babies and social justice snowflakes. It contains naughty stuff, silly language and big floppy breasts. That last one is especially true if one of the cast members decides to de-frock onstage... It's not part of the routine but it is the reality of the situation. WHEN: Saturday 15th September 2018 WHERE: Marrickville Town Hall, COST: Pre-book via the website for $25 or $20 concession (must provide concession card upon entry). Otherwise it's $30 (cash only) at the door from 7pm-12am www.thepollysclub.com.au

IN OTHER NEWS  This year has been challenging to say the least I’ve tried my hardest to keep gay radio alive in Western Sydney in February this year we announced that we would be doing a new program called Pride Radio but we would have to pay to do it, so to continue doing the program we rely on people from the community to contribute to the program. We have been lucky enough to have The Polly's Club and Acon help us this year in paying for our Air time ($1000 a year). We still need funding for website advertising so if you can help out go to the website and make a small donation as I really think it’s important to keep the program going with or without me there should be always a LGBTQI community radio program. We would love to have your feedback!

Produced By Beverly Buttercup, With Fifi Fo’Fum and Melicious D’amage (on rotation) in the studio, Every Sunday 6pm-8pm, A LGBTQ Music Program Supporting L.G.B.T.Q Artists / DJ’s / + A weekly guest and Gavin Prendergast From ACON and Felicity Frockaccino on a fortnightly rotation at 7:15pm .

DRAG GOSSIP: Tensions are brewing at a long running social event 2 popular queens who have been on the scene for a while are locking heads to such extremes that one of them walked out screaming and won’t return…. Who are these 2 queens gorgeous? Well let's just say that sometimes swallowing causes damage…. With long-time rivals, let’s call them ‘'Celine & Barbara'' sucking it up and coming together for charity to raise money for their singing teacher. Will this be the beginning of something new time will only tell (Drag) is just so competitive now specially for those working girls that do drag for a living thank God I only do it socially now lol once or twice a year .... Something NEW to be announced next month testing the waters with a new event!?

It's celebration time!

Wow this month The Polly's club celebrate 54 years supporting the LGBTQI Community, over the years Polly's have donated thousands of dollars back to community organizations because that’s what they do support the community. This month they return to the Roundhouse at Kensington to put on a birthday party like you’ve never seen before Polly's will present "The Bitches Of Broadway!"

Produced by Sue Allen a long time member. The Polly's show cast have been rehearsing for weeks to put on an amazing show, this is one birthday party not to be missed. Tickets available online $35 or on the door for $45. Unlike their Marrickville dances this is NOT a BYO event or are you able to bring your own nibbles. Come out and support The Pollys Club, a not for profit organisation and one of the longest running LGBTQI social clubs...

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Polly's committee for donating money to keep ''Pride Radio 89.3fm Every Sunday from 6pm - 8pm www.prideradio893fm.com organisations like Polly's only exist because the community members support Polly's check out their official website for up-and-coming dances they do five a year and give so much back to the community so if you have the opportunity go and check some of them out normally at the Marrickville Town hall.

www.thepollysclub.com.au

So much has come and gone in Western Sydney and in the city so people need to get out and support social events like Heaven Social Dance , The Polly's club, Unity Wollongong & The 3 Sisters Social Group in the blue mountains the only ones left running on a regular basis, over the years they’re stuck it out through the bad and the good so please support these organisations that give back to the community because without you they wouldn’t exist

With the growing amount of acceptance also comes change with a lot of LGBTQ venues either closing down or don't exist anymore. We no longer need to travel into the city for a safe refuge as our local pub and clubs are now so accepting and we can hang out with all of our friends both gay and straight and in venues much closer to home, and Western Sydney is BOOMING at the moment with drag trivia’s and bingos popping up everywhere.

Portia Turbo is the head queen at the ever popular and expanding TURBO TRIVIA & TURBO BALLS and writes up a fabulous variety of questions and games each week for you to enjoy. You aint never seen trivia quite like this. 
It's Free to play and all the venues have excellent kitchens, so bring your friends for a fun and inexpensive night out.

BUTTERCUP GOT PRIDE!

So Mardi Gras has come and gone…  after 17 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 26 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 too many people .. Then off to the party I went. CHER were pretty awesome considering  she is 71 ... and It was nice to some of my idols in the LEGENDS OF DRAG Show at midnight. BUT the rest of the entertainment was a little average considering the party “Sold Out“ and it was the 40th anniversary I thought they would’ve been a lot more!
I ended up leaving at 5am and was in bed by 6am 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 the legend Marcia Monterey walking group with some of western Sydney‘s legends walking in the parade in some of the fabulous costumes Marcia made over the years I honestly don’t think I could walk in the parade ever again it’s a long day and night 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 40 years of Mardi Gras…the best night ever at a MG party... I hope you all had a blast too!


This month I celebrate 26 years of doing drag, meaning I'm “technically” 51 years young! OMG it's my birthday = ''YUCK" That means i will reduce my responsibilities and push it onto my drag daughters and other high-profile queens in western community.


I’M SO EXCITED to announce that I'll be doing my own radio program PRIDE RADIO 89.3Fm from Sunday, 1 April and then every Sunday from 18:00 to 20:00 With weekly special guest in the studio + someone from ACON fortnightly at 7:15Pm and Jeremy Smith with what's hot and what's not in movies fortnightly at 7:15pm. The program will be supporting the LGBTQ community I really think it's important that we have a gay radio program on the radio on the Internet and on your phone as there's lots of other programs out there but nothing in Sydney on the radio. (but there might be one more program coming to the radio will have more info in April) ... With that said I am looking for people or companies that are able to donate money to keep the program on air as we are required to pay for 2hr air time yearly ($960) with all new application for the program at 2GLF 89.3fm in 2018 So if you can help out that would be awesome just SMS me 0433232425 your name your number and how you can help for more info check out our brand new website : www.prideradio893fm.com

draggossipDRAG GOSSIP

OMG which former Western Sydney (drag) queen is being chased by the taxation Department for unpaid taxes, with another Sydney drag queen being monitored for receiving payments and not declaring their extra income from drag ....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

(4) Try and stress less ...

 

Until next time gorgeous! (15FEB) Luv BB    www.beverlybuttercup.com

Ho Ho Ho! (Why thank you Santa, YES I am)

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.
2017 will see me celebrating Christmas with my son now living with me and do 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 $ 24,108 since first starting and that going to The 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 of the performers that supported us this year as well as the Heaven Committee: Ian Stumbles, Greg Robert & LayDee KinMee. Also a big thank to all our regulars that have supported us throughout the year. Hopefully this will be a sign of what’s to come in 2018 and patrons will continue to support Heaven at Mounties Bowling Club – Fairfield. It is so great to be able to give back to the L.G.B.T.Q community.

Its looks to a BIG YEAR next year in the Western Sydney with more drag queens working in the RSL and Clubs, hotels and Social Dance's providing entertainment like Bingo , Trivia , Drag Shows and productions for LGBTQI people. With less people travelling to the city NOW the west is going off in 2018 here a list some of the things happening:

Heaven Social Dance
Turbo Trivia
Turbo Bingle Balls
Gendebender Bingo
Naughty Numbers
Sandyoke Karaoke
Showtime
The 3 Sisters Social Group
Drag To Bitches
Prada's Priscilla's

OMG I told you so much happening in the west just search for them on Facebook or Google
Whilst on this subject, I do not do drag for a living as I have a full-time job. My first priority will always be to the LGBTI community; providing safe environments, raising awareness and money as Heaven and Kaleidoscope have done over the years. They’ve raised more than $31,971 for ACON and The Haven in Western Sydney. I really hope that I can continue to do this in 2018 with your help. 

Please support our nights in Western Sydney.  Please be aware that these social dances are not-for-profit social nights with all proceeds after initial costs being donated to charity.  Initial costs are function fees, DJ hire and a small entertainment budget.  



 

 

DRAG GOSSIP

Its official am officially DEAD!!!
My drag daughter has taken over with so much work on her plate, I don’t know how she copes. She will be performing at The Blue Mountain next year with the 3 Sisters Social Group announcing "Laydee KinMee and her Dancing Boys" will be the face of the Australia Day Dance Party and the June long weekend Dance Party & Costume Ball... 

And in other gossip, which former Western Sydney competition winner is in trouble with the Police for not topping up her opal card and giving Police too much lip? Looks like performing on her knees may have won her a dodgy comp, but it won’t let her slip away from criminal activity.

Until next time (12JAN) gorgeous Merry Christmas and a Gay New Year.
Be safe.
Love BB

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


Until next time gorgeous! (12DEC)
