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)

DRAG GOSSIP

Which former drag queen was once known as a rose, but now a bitch. Living up to her new and much more socially accurate name, has she gone way too far? After several cat fights, and then threatening to kill her fellow contestants in the group chat of a Western Sydney Talent Quest. Is this the case of a poor victims social media account been hacked, or is she the perpetrator? Will she bloom into a fresh new rose, or rot into a sour old bitch. Only time will tell. I told you it's all happening out west .. WoW, are you ready for more? Which Western Sydney Drag Queen has quit a multi award winning drag show after 2 years for the second time. First time due to a lack of bookings, and now due to her pursuing more financially stable drag and makeup work. With so many cast members coming and going, mirror mirror on the wall, what will the future hold? 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.. Also The Drag Industry Variety Awards will not be on this year in October. But sources tell me it may be on in December due to a lack of money in the bank.. More info to come in next month column on 12Oct ..
Until next time stay gorgeous :

WOW somebody nominated me for " Australian LGBT Awards " A big thank you to whoever nominated me , Now I have to just write about myself is it possible to do 300 to 500 words how do I fit it all ln lol ...  Last year they launched the Australian LGBTI Awards at the Sydney Opera House with over 300 guests attending the GALA dinner and many high profile individuals showing their support and receiving acknowledgment through their work within the LGBTI space. The Awards are also labelled "The Gay Oscars" with red carpet appearance by The Veronika's, Lucy Lawless, Molly Meldrum, Samuel Johnson, Danielle Cormack and many more . The main agenda of the event is to work with our Allies in the Corporate world and the entertainment industry to have our message of equality endorsed and to reach a wider audience to achieve acceptance . The media personalities attract main stream press attention which not only helps in our quest for equality but provides businesses and corporation a platform to align their brand with the message of equality. The process is as follows: Nominations: are open now to the public. We are receiving thousands of nominations across our 16 categories as we speak . The nominations are public and at this stage we simply let organisations and Nominees know about that they have been nominated. The Nominee can decline or accept the nomination - if accepting we require a 500 word synopsis on the company including and highlighting any work that has been done on LGBTI inclusion . Once all Profiles been received - we will create a shortlist (The Top 10) based on numbers of nominations received and the profile submission received . The shortlist will then be announced beginning of October - and public voting will start - with the winner announced at the GALA dinner - Friday 2nd March 2018 . www.australianlgbtiawards.com.au

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?

DRAG GOSSIP

Which  Western Sydney drag queen now feels the need to attack me/heaven  just to promote something she's doing !! Last time I pay her for anything gorgeous. 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

Until next time Gorgeous, BB    www.beverlybuttercup.com

Have a Happy and safe Mardi Gras!

2017 - New Beginnings

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.

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

Fabulous Hampers and prizes to be won. Come and join us for a bit of HOUSEWIVE REALNESS. www.thepollysclub.com.au

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?
