Get your party shoes on, girls; another party season is upon us. Many think that mid-year isn’t very busy, but think again.

This weekend will play host to the Queen’s Birthday celebrations. Big Queer Nation has promised to rock Fox Studios this Saturday with international guests such as Ferry Corsten and Nasty Girl herself Inaya Day (who was reported to have been turning her heels up at Manacle a couple of weeks ago -“ or was it a look-alike?).

With two glamour hostesses Vanity Faire and Dallas Dellaforce at the helm, Big Queer Nation is a must this weekend.

The party is being run in conjunction with the great people at ACON, who are celebrating 20 years. I am sure I don’t have to tell everyone how much good ACON does for our community.

If you’re looking for something different, Indulgence at the Midnight Shift could be your cup of tea. The Midnight Shift Club has become quite famous for its Indulgence parties, selling out almost straight away. So if leather and fetish are up your alley (so to speak), get your ticket now.

One very important date we all must remember is this Friday 10 June. It is the launch of Pride Week at Stonewall.

Although it is called Pride Week, the extravaganza lasts for almost two weeks, with events such as Riot 69 The Dance Party to raise money for Twenty10 (18 June), Late Night Trading with Polly Petrie and Boys Bar Up with Ricca Paris to raise money for the Luncheon Club (16 June), Mega Male Box (22 June), and one of my favourites, Orgy of Drag (17 June).

Orgy of Drag has been going for bloody years and each year it seems as though it is getting better and better.

The evening will be hosted by the always fabulous Candy Box and will feature the cream of Sydney’s drag talent. The evening will be raising money for ACON and, to be honest, is a bloody hoot.

So whether you are going to a party at Fox Studios or on Oxford St, have fun and look after each other. There are so many dickheads around these days -“ we really need to look after one another.

I was lucky enough to go to Carlotta’s grand opening last Wednesday night at Luna Park. With all the glamour, glitz and photographers, it was like being in Hollywood.

Due to work commitments (Klub Kamp) I had to rush off at interval but what I did see was fabulous. I think I am one of the few Australians who haven’t seen one of the girl’s RSL shows.

It was great to actually hear the old stories of when it wasn’t easy to be a showgirl. Congratulations, Carol and the girls, you are fabulous and I promise to see the whole show soon.
