Pride celebrations out west will take off this Sunday, September 18 at the Parramatta Pride Picnic, which is set to be the biggest one yet.
It is free entry, and there will be lots of fun and frolics for the entire family. You can even take on the drag queens in some very special races.
So come along this Sunday at Parramatta Park, site 23 Pavilion Flat, entrance via O’Connell St, Parramatta. Just look for the rainbow flags and the supermodels, well, just one — ME!
Speaking of the supermodel that I am, did you all see my article in The Liverpool Leader? It’s so hard being a celebrity. I can’t even go to Westfield now without being mobbed by screaming fans requesting my autograph. It’s a hard life, but someone has to do it.
The article was meant to be about finding new premises for 89.3FM. Instead it became an article outing me to the world. They told everyone my boy name, and so now I just can’t hide away from anything.
No definite news has been reached with the radio station finding a new home, but there are a few options, so fingers are still crossed. Please visit www.saveourstation.com.au to log support.
For this year’s Sydney Fringe Festival, two of our favourite Queer Out West presenters, Sandy Bottom and LayDee KinMee, were involved in a quirky play called Babylon to Bollywood at the Imperial. There are only three shows left, this Thursday, Friday and Saturday (September 15 – 17) from 7.30pm).
I saw the show last week, and to be honest it went over my head a little. It was a little too political for me, and I didn’t understand it all, but Sandy and LayDee were definitely the highlights, sharing their wonderful vocal talents.
The finale costumes were also fabulous, Lola Del Arte and Christina Dior did a great job on them. Where’s mine, bitches? I love having such talented friends.
As you may know, I have been nominated in this year’s Honour Awards. My nomination was for the Media/Arts and Entertainment Award, and fellow western Sydney nominees include Jeff and Mike from the Blacktown Outdoors Group for the Health and Wellbeing Award. Fingers crossed that the west has some luck on the night. All will be revealed on Thursday, September 29 at The Ivy.
I’m hoping to launch an all-new Beverly that night with a new dress by my daughter Lola Del Arte and I might even get a new face and wig from the talented Prada Clutch.
In other news, I’m proud to announce that after five years, western Sydney will have its own LGBT New Year’s Eve dance party. This year the celebrations will take place at the Northmead Bowling Club as part of my fabulous baby, Heaven social dance.
Tickets are on sale NOW for only $10. Get in quick as tickets are limited and have already started selling like hot cakes. If you miss out on the pre-sale, you can get tickets at the door on the night for $20. So get in quick as this is an event not to miss.
Another night not to miss is the first annual World AIDS Day Red Party at Kaleidoscope social dance on December 3 at the Parramatta Golf Club. It will be a great night with all proceeds going to ACON Western Sydney. All our patrons are encouraged to wear red as there will be prizes for the best dressed male, female and drag (king or queen). There will be three fabulous shows hosted by my daughter LayDee KinMee, the fabulous Prada Clutch and, of course — ME! Tickets are only $10 and available at the door.
Till next time, gorgeous!
