Western Sydney has to be one of the most unpredictable queer communities. One column I am bemoaning the fact that GLBT events are dropping like flies, then the next they are springing back to life!
I am too old to keep it up … sorry, typo … I am too old to keep up with everything. I just need to lock myself away with Gay Adult Matchmaker, a webcam and some good silicone lube! Life would be so much easier.
I should be pleased things are looking up for the west. But if I didn’t make things all about me with some type of drama, then who would I be?
It is pleasing to report Heaven’s charity night was our biggest night ever. We raised nearly $2200 for the GLBT community in western Sydney, with all proceeds being distributed by ACON West.
We wish to extend a big thank you to all the drag queens that donated their time and provided patrons with a wonderful and varied show. Also thanks to the Sydney Star Observer and Voodoo Chocolates for donating the prizes for the raffles. Matt Vaughan from ACON West was invaluable and the night couldn’t have been done without him and his volunteers – thank you!
Pity not everything Heaven does runs so smoothly! Our new show Desperate Drag Queens is already under a black cloud with the flustered producer Gracie Lou having to postpone rehearsals as she scrambles to get hold of the missing music CD! Will the show debut as scheduled in August or will it be postponed until October? We’re all holding our breath to see how the stand off ends …
Upcoming events include Polly’s Club this Saturday night from 7pm. Their $$$Rich but Rotten$$$ show will be flamboyant without question. There is nothing more entertaining that seeing fossils like me attempting choreography on a stage that could house Noah’s Ark. God I love Pollys!
If you’re not up for a night out and prefer the great outdoors, then why not join the Blacktown Outdoors Group on July 17 for a physical event that would give me heart palpitations. If you like bush – walking that is, then go along and complete the Jerusalem Bay Track. I’ll be kind to them and likely give it a miss. I’m sure they don’t need to carry some exhausted, fat old drag queen on a stretcher for the majority of the trek.
The west also sees some new events launch this month with Kaleidescope’s premier on Friday July 30 at 9pm. Located at Hotel
Parramatta and supported by the Parramatta Lesbian Group this will be another monthly event. Their fingers are crossed the night will be a success, giving the GLBT communities of the west, another alternative to travelling into the city. I will be attending their speed dating event from 7pm in order to find Mr Right. If you’re lucky I might let you get a word in during the three-minute rotations.
Chequers returns down in the Gong! Formerly known as Chequers Night Club now known as Pure Nightclub – it will host another once a month GLBT night – Pure Pride. So come along and party with DIVA Award winners Kitty Glitter and I. The night will also feature Charisma Belle as host, and my slut of a daughter Laydee Kinmee with her mystery guest. If you want to join the VIP list for free entry before 10pm, email firstname.lastname@example.org
Drag Gossip: Which Westy Diva is getting too big for her boots after the departure of the youngest member in March? Am I a fool for paying her to do a job when there is not an ounce of gratitude or respect given in return? It seems there will be a few changes coming to Heaven in 2011… I’ve been around for 18 years and I’m too old put up with this shit!
Until next time gorgeous!
