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!!

By now most people know that Queer Out West 89.3Fm is celebrate 15 years this month on air on the radio and online and will come to an end on 19 December :(   I just want to say a big thank you to everybody that has supported the program of last 15 years.

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

Maybe she should learn the values of working hard for your money instead of relying on Mummy and Daddy to pay for everything...

Not really gossip but because of gossiping people, a room hire fee of $300 and renovations taking place next year at the NBC Club, means Heaven is now looking for Home/Club for 2017 – KARMA is BITCH (I know who you are).  

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?

Keep that gossip coming in just drop me an inbox or an Email  - love to hear about what's going on!

 

Until next time
