DRAG GOSSIP !!
Heaven in process of trying to locked in their dates for 2019. What will change in 2019? It is so great that the committee (Greg, Ian & LayDee) and I get to keep it running the night for the GLBTQI community of the west to have somewhere to hang out!! Now let's Talk about show me the MONEY!! Which Western Sydney drag queen is being sued and might just end up in court !? The poor luv does everything right by people and she is having one pulled over her. Hopefully her solicitors can help her out and save her from the stress of the courtroom – though, I would love to see the look on the judges face when she walks in….lol and which DRAG queen is being hunted by the TAXMAN !!
Until next time ( 12th July 2018) Be Safe & Gorgeous, BB www.beverlybuttercup.com
