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 :

Sydney's Iconic House Of Priscilla celebrates 18 years of trading

  • Published in Latest

It took one amazing queen with a sewing machine and a dream to come up with one of the world's leading LGBTQI businesses. Chelsea Bunn took to Oxford Street, Sydney's "Golden Gay Mile" over 18 years ago and not only serviced (!) all of the queens in town but made costumes for dance schools, eisteddfods and more.

You can see House of Priscilla on TV with stars like Kathy Griffin, Cyndi Lauper, and a long list of A-List celebs and more mincing through the door and up that staircase to a Willy Wonka style shop of imagination and glitter.

Headwear, corsets, makeup, eyelashes and a staff you could just lick like a lolly pop, it's a show queen's dream come to life.

Big props to Chelsea and all that have supported her - if you ever find yourself in Sydney, the House of Priscilla is the first stop you want to make. Buy a little or a lot... you will find everything you need there to make your life FANTABULOUS!

Congrats CB!!! you and your team are fabulous.
