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
Drag Bingo
The Polly's Club
Queer Radio Sydney 89.3fm Every Monday 10pm -12am.


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

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
