It's that time of the year when we come together to give back to the community.
After the huge success of Heaven's 7th birthday (ha ha to those who thought it wouldn't last) and Haven charity night last weekend, we raised $2277 with record crowds turning out to help us party.
I say thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you.

Hopefully we can work together and keep the momentum going so people will support the social dances in Western Sydney. Times are tough trying to get people to come out to socialize... Moving forward; I have decided to keep Kaleidoscope running as long as people support it with the next date scheduled on 2nd August, hosted by well known Richmond diva - Wilhelmina Scott.
Hopefully we get 60 people to cover the costs and at the end of the year will make a decision when we do our annual World Aids Day dance party. Is it worth keeping ? We have negotiated with the venues for our dates for 2015, moving them from the start to the end of the month. For more information check out the What's on Guides here on Guidetogay.com!
In other exciting news Heaven Social Dance has locked in and started coordinating their brand-new :production show "GAYLIENS" on Saturday, 13 September at the Northmead Bowling Club, From 7:30pm-12:30am and have recently discovered it's going to be a massive weekend with the 8th Annual Parramatta Pride Picnic Locking for Sunday, 14 September, From 10am-4pm. OMG at a NEW location moving away from Parramatta Park will this affect the numbers? and will it affect Heaven's social dance turn out? Only time will tell.
Sometimes the best sort out plans just don't work out the way we would like them, no matter how much we communicate and work together.
If you do not support these events in Western Sydney they won't take place.
In other exciting news, Unity Wollongong INC. has taken off.. filling the gap after the local Gay night club at Wollongong shutdown.. Unity is a long-running social group in Wollongong which provides a place in the Wollongong area for the G.L.B.T.I.Q community to socialize, not to be mistaken for Unity in Sydney, so get out and support some of these fabulous events if you live in Wollongong or live in Western Sydney, we can only run these events if you support them will not last for the next generation.

Which western suburbs drag queen is becoming more well known for all the wrong reasons?
She was recently involved in an altercation with another out-of-drag, drag queen in the car park at an event resulting in a larger-than-life lump and a sore head! Followed up with outrageous antics at a local McDonald's restaurant. McDRAMA!
Which drag queen has turned into a diva after only doing drag for a year and has become very precious? Hopefully in time she'll remember her friends, bring herself back to reality and become fabulous again...
That's it for this month, Until next time gorgeous
