All good queens go to Heaven!

All good queens go to heaven! 

We farewelled one of my best friends and a long time Heaven Social Dance committee member Ian Stumbles on 4th January he will be sadly missed by many people but I really hope he’s in a better place. The remaining committee members have decided to postpone PopUp Drag on 9th February and dedicate the night to Ian stumbles aka Kerry-Ann Canally and those from Wollongong aka Lola. A drag marathon which we think will be a perfect send off as Ian was such a huge supporter of the Western Sydney drag scene and very passionate about keeping Heaven going into the future.

Two Western Sydney legends will be hosting, Miss Melicious D’amage and Sandy Bottom, with lots of special guess this will be a night of mixed feelings for many people but I encourage as many of you as possible to come on 9th February to Mounties Bowling Club Fairfield, 6pm to midnight, $10 on the door this will help keep the night running into 2019 for more info Check out our Facebook group or a website www.heavensocialdance.com.

In other heaven news, I would like to say a big thank you to everyone who attended the Red Party in December for World Aids Day helping us raise $2,095 for (ACON) that brings us to a total of $28,092 raised for charity since first starting in 2007. Hopefully, we can keep this going as long as possible so please get out and support events in the LGBTQI community.

In more bad news I have decided not to reapply to do the gay radio program PRIDE RADIO in February 2019 after being a volunteer at 89.3FM 2GLF for over 18 years the last 12 months has been the hardest for many different contributing factors we now have to pay to do the program/stress & politics our last program will be 24 February 2019. I’m looking forward to having some me time with all that said I would like to say a special thank you to everybody that has contributed to the program this year a special thank you to Melicious Damage and Fifi FoFum as my regular presenters and then there’s our regular Dj‘s like Justin Scott, Tom Rogers, Victoria Anthony and Ophelia Shaft plus regular contributions by Felicity Frockaccino and Gavin Prendergast from (ACON) for their ongoing support to gay radio ... if there’s anyone out there in the community who would like to do a radio program and give up a few hours a week and do some training, please get in touch with the cooperative for more information. A program should only cost you around $1,000 a year plus any other outstanding expenses such as website or advertising : www.893fm.com.au my apologies not much good is happening in January but until next month be safe and look after yourself,


Until next time!  

Be safe.  Love Buttercup xx

Next Heaven Social Dance to pay tribute to one of its founders, Ian Stumbles.

  • Published in Latest

He made a huge difference to the lives of many of us, and was an integral part of the family that puts on the monthly event "HEAVEN" in Sydney's western suburbs...  a monthly event and lifeline to the LGBTQIA community out west, Ian was the coordinator to beat them all.

His genuine humor, love for life and his friends and his keen eye for a good drag talent has helped launch some global superstars from the west of Sydney that otherwise may not have been seen or given the chance to shine in the way they do.

Heaven's Feb 9 event will be a tribute night to Ian - so we are asking all of our family to come together and share the memories, the love and the glitter that was Ian Stumbles.

Come along and be a part of it - even if you didn't know Ian personally, our community needs to show the love - so we hope to see you there!
