Lisa Stansfield live in NYC

  • Published in Music

Lisa Stansfield's voice stands out the moment the first note hits the audience. It has power, soul, depth and passion. On Sunday, October 15, 2018, Lisa wowed the sold-out crowd in NYC at The Highline Ballroom.

Although Ms. Stansfield stated she is always nervous to perform for audiences in NYC, there was no shortage of love for her from the audience; some who traveled as far from Switzerland. Her LGBTQ fans were front and center for the show, giving love and admiration by signing, dancing and absorbing every note.

Ms. Stansfield is a strong woman who has braved the music industry for over 30 years with dignity, strength, and most importantly, talent. There are songs to dance to, add sultry rhythm to while making Iove, and songs powerful enough to make you cry and contemplate all aspects of your life. These are just some of these reasons she is an icon in the LGBTQ community. And, they were all on display during Sunday's performance.

Soul, jazz, dance, pop, and the blues are all genres she has spiced her songs with perfectly. Her 8th studio album, DEEPER, is a perfect blend of what we have come to love from Ms. Stansfield. Visit Lisa's official website to order your copy and other official merchandise today:

Review: Cher - Here we Go Again Australian Tour 2018

When visiting the domain of an icon such as Cher, one does ponder the usual questions - will she live up to the hype, will the show be as over the top as you want it to be and will it stand the test of the usually picky Aussie audiences?

Well, yes to all! Cher's return to Sydney after last years Mardi Gras was a triumph on all fronts. Her iconic status was re-affirmed to a massive sold-out audience at the Qudos Bank arena - which had a mix of die hard fans who would scream at anything and the usual lookie-lous who go to shows just cos there is nothing else to do in this supposed cosmopolitan city. (lol - thanks lock out laws!)

With a set list that boggles the mind, Cher paced the show to suit the incredible costume changes (we all love an overdose of Bob Mackie) and a stage set that was just as spectacular - although paired down to suit the variety of venues she was performing in throughout the country. Don't expect a runway or B stage. But we lived for the projections and video screens - some of the best in a concert we have seen for a long long time.

Of course Cher performed all the hits, but like her twitter feed, the show soared thanks to her candid stories and speaking parts where she shared parts of her career and life with the audience.

The show does feel long, but when there is so much to pack into a show - how can one complain? But it really does fit in everything - from the Sonny and Cher show - too ABBA. Its everything you could want from Cher and done with the flair and class only she can provide.

We don't want to go into too much depth about the ins and outs of the show - as this is one show you need to see for yourself - its bucket list stuff... so don't hate us for not rabbiting on about every detail - do yourself a favour and grab one of the final tickets available for Saturday's show at Qudos Bank arena and the final night at ICC Theatre at Darling Harbour.

Season 10, Episode 3 - Tap that App.

PROUDEST MARY
Monet and the sponge dress. She is loving herself sick over that sponge dress. For reals though. Does she just carry those bits of sponge around with her, tucked under her wig or something?

LAZIEST SUSAN
Oh no - is Mayhem a look queen only? I thought she had more moxey and pizzazz, but in the App challenge she was all “I dunno…” and they walked all over her. Maybe it was a one-off, maybe she’ll learn from it. Her comments in Untucked seemed to suggest so. Step that pussy UP gurl.

NOTABLE QUOTABLES
- Visage on Yuhua’s runway: The look was just like hairy Dalmatian with HPV.
- Monique: Asia isn’t feeling the concept. She like ‘guuurl’, and when another drag queen goes ‘guuurl’ you know it ain’t good…
- Monique (again): America, let the facts be the facts: The Vixen handed Aquaria her ass in a gift bag. Gift wrapped. There you go. Merry Christmas.
- Monique (AGAIN) on Mayhem’s apathy: Girl you better deliver cos if I’m in the bottom two because of you I’m cuttin’ up all your wigs. All of ‘em.
- Monique (AGAAAAIN!) in Untucked: I just hope some bitches … better not throw me under the bus cos they gettin’ an UNGODLY phone call. And I’m gonna record it and then I’m gonna put the bitch on YouTube.
- The entire cast not aware yet the internet sensation that has evolved: Vanjiiiie… Vanjiiie… Vanjiiiie….

BLONDE HIGHLIGHTS
All that Fresh Off The Bus Drag stuff was so much fun!
The Vixen being a dog, barking how good the chocolate is. Hysterical!
Blair St Clair feverishly tapping with those Raquel Welsh pigtails and Peter Pan collar. Everything!
And Monet dancing an Irish jig. I fucking LIVE.
But I lost my shit over Miz Cracker saying “I taste like your best afternoon… April 24th”. For those that don’t know, this is an obscure Streisand reference - look it up! - and now I’m more obsessed with Cracker than ever.

FROSTY TIPS
Well, I did ask for more race stuff… **awkward laugh**
I’m not gonna say too much here, as I’m sure it’ll be hotly debated within the group, but my heart kinda broke for Aquaria. Yeah she’s made her own bed, but fuck – she had Dusty come for her, Monique come for her, Cracker sort of come for her, and of course The Vixen come for her, all at once, and then when it finally broke her she had to deal with the most unsympathetic, dismissive response – how much does bitch have to take?

SHADIEST LADY
Yuhua. Just everything Yuhua.
She’s there suggesting new names for the Madam Buttrface app, not even realising it’s in fact the funniest app name of the three.
She had to be told how to do ugly drag, and she still didn’t get it..
She’s about as funny as a malignancy, but gets all shitty and defensive when her teammates try to gently critique her.
THEN THE BITCH gets on the runway and claims she wanted to put on an ugly nose but “my teammates said no, so I didn’t put it on…”
Ummm that’s a fucking bold-faced lie. THAT’S FAKE FUCKING NEWS! You are the Cambridge Analytica quiz of this season.
Why is there even a lip sync this week? Just send this bitch home?

WAIT. WHAT?
Blair St Clair coming out as a … as a … as a CHRISTIAN. **sob**
It’s like when Beyonce thanks god at the Grammys where she’s just been awarded for the song she wrote about giving blowjobs. I just … I don’t get it.

REALLY REAL
Dusty’s story, talking about the dysfunctional relationship with his parents, and getting exorcised and made to attend fucking pray the gay away therapy. This sort of story never fails to upset me. It’s atrocious. People are the worst. This queen is amazing! His parents should thank their stupid god that they have this great, creative, funny, wonderful talent, and not some dumb Christian cookie-cutter who believes god gives out awards for songs about blowjobs.
Of course, now he has a beautiful fiancé and a fabulous road ahead. Fuck off anti-gays. You’re time is so over. As Latrice would say, EAT IT.

LIVING FOR…
That ginger Pit Crew guy… I mean, I just can’t cope!
He’s sitting there in his tighty dayglo undies, all laid back and sexy like whatever bitch I got time, and you guys I seriously haven’t had sex in like FOR. EVER. and something’s just GOT TO GIVE OKAY???? **passes out**

SURPRISE SURPRISE!
Courtney Love needed subtitles. I couldn’t understand a single word. Did she have a stroke? Seriously. Was that Bell’s Palsy? She sounded like those clips of Judy Garland drunk on a late night talkshows in the 60s.

YOU’RE A WINNER BABY…
Ohmygod did y’all see Eureka’s facecrack when Asia won the week? Hahaha.
Asia did well in the Maxi, and that Tweety Bird look for the Feather runway was INSPIRED. Camp, comical, glamorous, fabulous. DIE! She earned her win this week.
That said, I begged for Monique this week. The detail in her feather cape, all that white and gold, so beautifully constructed. She looked like some kind of mythical creature come to life. And all of her cutaways were hysterical, and her self-directing wearing those big stupid beanbag titties… I was floored!

BYEEEEEEE…
Mayhem vs Yuhua lipsyncing to ‘Celebrity Skin’ by Hole:
What a GREAT track for a drag number!
Yuhua looked out of place – like Britney covering I Love Rock’n’Roll; no you don’t! – while Mayhem gave it attitude and anger. In the end Mayhem was tearing off her feathers, malting all over the runway, and it was ART. Unleash!

So Yuhua went home.
Good.

"Bruno" might not be so funny

  • Published in Latest
He may be hilariously funny - but will Sascha Baron Cohen's new blockbuster potential, Bruno - be a positive image for the GLBTI community?

US activists are saying no, as it "could reinforce negative stereotypes about homosexuals just as they are making gains in the fight for rights such as same-sex marriage."

Cohen's style of humor does raise eyebrows - as it did with his previous blockbuster "Borat" but this type of success can have negative impact.

"We do feel the intentions of the filmmakers are in the right place -- satire of this form can unmask homophobia -- but at the same time it can heighten people's discomfort with our community," said Rashad Robinson, senior director of media programs for the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation.

With that in mind, GLAAD asked in vain for Universal Pictures, the studio behind "Bruno," to add a message from Cohen addressing the importance of gay rights and tolerance.

Universal says in a statement it believes most moviegoers will understand the film's "positive intentions."

"'Bruno' uses provocative comedy to powerfully shed light on the absurdity of many kinds of intolerance and ignorance, including homophobia," the studio said.

What do you think? With recent bad taste jokes and homophobia masked as comedy (ala Footy Show) in the press, do you think Bruno is going to be good for the image of the GLBTI community?
