Well, that’s exactly what’s happening every Friday night at The Alex Hotel in Leura. Running from 9pm-3am with shows at 10pm and midnight, this truly is a much talked about new event in Western Sydney.

The first Friday night of each month is the main dance with fancy dress theme and a new theatre-styled production show. Every other Friday has variety entertainment, including spot performances and raffles. Entry to every dance is free, and the designated driver in your group receives free non-alcoholic beverages for the entire night.

You might even see me in the crowd with my two daughters Lola Del Arte and LayDee KinMee.

Also causing a storm on a Friday night is Crystals At Canterbury, a new GLBTIQ night at Canterbury Bowling Club.

Kaleidoscope Social dance #2 proved to be bigger and better than the first, bringing a whole new crowd back to the Parramatta Golf Club; luckily no-one confused it with the other dance that occurs there.

Due to its overwhelming success, Kaleidoscope has locked in all their dates for 2011, with dance #3 starting up on February 5.

This weekend sees LayDee and myself as special guests at our ever favourite Wollongong Venue, Castros, with the legendary hostess Miss Dee Dee Lemar. It seems we are mostly there on the third Saturday of every month.

Following our night in the Gong, LayDee and I will be hitting the stage at ARQ for Under The Mirrorball, a World Aids Day Fundraiser. With almost every drag in Sydney performing, this is a night truly not to miss. All proceeds go to ACON and doors open at 9pm.

December sees Queer Out West celebrating eight years in its current format, but is it overdue for another change? This year saw a split in producers with Paul Lou taking on the job on the first and thirdrd Mondays of the month, with myself doing it on the second and and fourth.

Maxi Shield continues to join us every Monday from 11pm with city gossip. 2011 will be sure to see even more changes coming your way, so stay tuned and check out www.qow.zoomshare.com for all the latest.
