Creating EQUALITY -  YOU ARE NOT ALONE

Well our first dance for the year at a ''NEW CLUB'' Fairfield Mounties Bowling Club on 04 February was a huge success. With over 110 people there on night it was an exceptional turnout. Thank you to LayDee KinMee for hosting, to the performers in PopUp Drag who entertained us  = Stacey Aphrodite, Carrie Marr,  Annie P (1st), Terra Part (3rd) and Anita Root (2nd), and special performance by Koko D'Vyne. Thank you also to Ophelia Shaft (DJ), Cliff  (Door and Lighting), Rob from EGOmedia - Au  (Photos and Backdrop)  George  (Videos) and  Ann-Marie (SSO) 

Thank you to everyone who came and made it a fantastic night.  We look forward to seeing everyone again on 1st April.  Thank you all and we love you.  Love from Beverly , Greg  and Ian .

Again thank you to all the patrons and bar staff. It was great to see so many people. www.heavensocialdance.com

 

I'm starting to get excited coming up this weekend Saturday 11th February is The Polly's Club Mardi Gras Dance Will Present '' Friends Of  Dorothy '' At The Marrickville Town Hall From 7pm-12am Entry $25 the show is produced by Daisy with the Polly's cast, Prize for best dressed PS be there early otherwise you'll be standing up .. www.thepollysclub.com.au

 

Also in February the NEW V-Bar Social Dance at Coolibah Hotel Merrylands with the night providing something for everybody  V-Bar upstairs and Karaoke downstairs.  People now have something to do on a Friday night the next dance is 17th February from 7pm-12am $10  Music by Dj Shaft with a Madonna Tribute show with Melicious Dámage , Delilah VonTramp & Victoria A Bitch ... fingers crossed people will supported it on a Friday night because they did not support the LGBTQ event there Friday night might be a winner ?? Remember in 2014 people said two social dances in western Sydney was  '' TOO MUCH ''  so we reduced heaven to 6… but after last weekend’s huge success for the heaven at new club, maybe people want more ,more, more ??? Only  time will only tell gorgeous.

 

The fabulousity which is Fair Day Sunday 19th February , started as soon as we exited the car and were approached by a young man  who offered us a "service" in the laneway in glebe last year ..  considering it was the second time in 18 years that I have attended Fair Day as a boy and I still nearly got lucky, he made me feel like a dirty old man so we ran off to Victoria Park to join in the festivities... But this year fair day is on the move to a NEW LOCATION = Camperdown Memorial Rest Park , Newtown..  Fair Day will an eye opener this year as I will be just one of thousands check out the new park! Just one of thousands the people sitting on a blanket in front of the main stage.  It's a sign that I really am a nobody, nobody will recognised me or will they after being plastered all over the Liverpool & Fairfield Champion (the local paper) in and out of DRAG !! OMG !!

 

When Fair Day is over you know the Parade is soon to follow on 04 March . After walking and working the parade for  17 years,  this year be any different lol  As last year I watched the parade and enjoyed it so much now I'm getting older, it seems the route gets longer... despite offers to be part of a float, this will be the second year in a row that I will be watching the parade from VIP Area and dashing off  to the party with my partner in crime.  I just had too much fun last year at the Party out of drag.  I'd like to see more floats and social groups from the West be involved, it seems everyone splits into other groups at Mardi Gras time when it should be a time that we unite?

In other gossip, which former Western Sydney drag superstar has been BANNED from all the Asian fabric shops ? Apparently she was caught putting things in her bag while she was walking around the show Oh no  !! And which Western Sydney Drag star might have bitten off more than she can chew by working up to 6 nights a week ? = BREAKDOWN

A brand new year and a brand new me ! WoW hasn't it started with a bang?

 

With over 350 people packing the auditorium at Mounties for "Drag In The New Year" by the show casts of Drags to Bitches what a fabulous show what a fabulous way to end the year and start the new year!  

 

It looks like its going to be an interesting year in Western Sydney.

 

NEWSFLASH!

89.3Fm 2GLF is the local non-profit community broadcaster for the Liverpool and Fairfield region. Our programming covers all aspects of the community with local information, ethnic programming, specialist music and local event coverage. The station is run and managed by volunteers from the local area. In addition to the station FM broadcast, it is streamed on our website www.893fm.com.au and all program are available On Demand for a four week period after broadcast  and have supported fabulous LGBTQ  Programs like : Out West And Proud Program , Lesbians On Air , Queer Out West & NOW Queer Radio Sydney over the last 35 Years.

 

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. 

 

Also Nikki Facchin and Jeremy Smith and Fifi Fo'Fum will return The NEW program Will be QUEER RADIO SYDNEY as from 16 January 10pm-12am On the Radio & Online www.893fm.com.au

 

The first and third Monday of every month will be Beverly Buttercup, Nikki fashion and Jeremy Smith.

 

The second and fourth Monday of the month will be Pandora Box, Fifi Fo'Fum & Kitty Puss.

 

The fifth Monday = 29May, 31Jul, 30Oct 2017 will be just a music program with a special guest (LGBTI) Dj in the studio.

 

I look forward to hearing your feedback in regards to the new program which will mainly focus on supporting LGBTI singer/songwriter's Gay music with a little community info special guest interviews and a lot of fun along the way. 

 

We will also be do a LIVE chat during the program every Monday night from 10pm-12am on www.facebook.com/groups/queerradiosydney

 

 

Not very often my GOSSIP comes true.

But this time it has with Palms West Social Dance calling it a day after 6 social dances they have decided to walk away after discovering you can't please everybody. 

 

Two events in 2016 were still able to write a $1500 cheque for Twenty10 so that was pretty fabulous... don't you think?! but don't despair out with the old and in with the new? 

 

The new you say???

 

There is a brand-new nights starting on Friday nights to replace the gap left by Palms it will be run by one of Western Sydney's baby drag /up-and-coming drag queen Victoria A Bitch. 

 

The night will be call V-BAR at the Coolibah hotel, Merrylands from 20th Jan, 17Fab & 17Mar to start with from 7pm-12am $10 Shows 9:30 & 10:30pm with Dj Jay Cee, Fingers crossed it lasted longer than PWSD did at the Coolibah So come on Western Sydney you need get out and support the social events.

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...

 

 

Until next time gorgeous! Luv BB

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 

 

Drag Queens and Drag Kings mainly from Western Sydney will be able to come along and pop on stage and WIN SOME CASH!!

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

With RGT #2 in its final few night (15Jul, 29Jul, 12Aug & 26Aug) contestants are dropping like flies or just not tuning up Who will take home the $1000 dollars if then is no contestants left on the 26 Aug will there be last minute ringing?

Until next time

Be Safe & Gorgeous, BB
