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!

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!?
