Oh yes Western Sydney, that is the question, but never fear it isn’t in reference to myself, but in reference to certain others.

Let’s start off with my baby Heaven. The night is peaking after four years, and I have now decided to run the night as I would like to. For far too long I have tolerated people just for the sake of it; but no longer.

Debuting on August 27 is the new production show for Your Westy Divas, [email protected] The show will also be performed on October 29. It’s going to be different from all the other shows you’ve seen, and it will also be the final production show featuring Your Westy Divas.

That’s right. I have decided to kill off my precious little team, and replace them with outsider entertainment. At my age, I don’t need the stress of casting and re-casting divas for production shows, nor do I have the time to attend endless rehearsals, and above all, there is a certain someone that I no longer want to work with, and after reading facebook polls, I’m sure that all you patrons will be glad to see the back of her also.

Who will it be? You’ll have to see next year. So who will stay and who will go?

I have decided to outsource the entertainment to provide complete variety for the patrons, and to save myself a lot of stress. If you are interested in producing a show, contact me to discuss your theme and budget, and who knows, you may be gracing the Heaven stage in 2012.

Talking about my other baby, the most recent Kaleidoscope was our most successful ever, with numbers almost doubling to over 100 people. People in the west are now taking real advantage of the convenience of locally run dances and benefitting from better parking conditions and cheaper bar drinks.

With the warmer weather coming our way, I’m certain that we will see many more nights popping up!

The Pink Ribbon Dance in Seven Hills started off with a bit of controversy and was re-named Daylees Social Dance. The night was a huge success and people fell in love with the venue and the selection of entertainment. The next dance is scheduled for the last Saturday in September, the 24th.

So if Daylees continue to run on the last Saturday of every odd month, Heaven runs on the even and Kaleidoscope runs the 1st Saturday of every month, that will be two social nights a month you can attend out west – how fabulous!

Being the bragger that I am, I also want to touch on my other little baby – Queer Out West 89.3FM. This year it celebrates 10 years of supporting the GLBT community. Regular contributers include Maxi Shield, Tora Hymen, Robert Manser and Andrew Potts and studio presenters include Ida Slapda, LayDee KinMee, Ian Stumbles, DJ Justin Scott and Sandy Bottom.

With this bunch of lunatics, you are certainly in for a mixed bag, with a completely different flavour every Monday night. So be sure to listen in Monday Nights from 10pm-Midnight on 89.3FM or online through www.queeroutwest.com.
