That’s Right! I’m Super Gay Married.

It’s been two-weeks since my man Jacques made an honest (wo)man out of me. I’M MARRIED! Officially all kinds of gay married, tho. WOW! Where do I start?! Well, once upon a time a shy southern boy growing up in the Bible Belt in Nashville dreamed…. OK, OK! Not that far back! Ah, the memories of my husband and I. They are so fond in my heart, mind and soul. Here’s the story… …

Queen of the Desert Drag Pageant

I was sitting on the couch here at home when I got a message from Brett Klein at the D.A.P. about the upcoming Queen of the Desert lip-sync drag competition that we just had 5/27 at Renaissance Hotel in Palm Springs. I had attended the previous year which was the premiere year for the pageant. Brett knew my background in the pageant circuit with the girls could be an asset to the show. My filter was off so I told him what I thought of the previous year and how I thought it could be better, encouraging but honest in my opinions. The next thing I know I am sitting across from a true soldier for the Desert Aids Project… …

A Few Thoughts on a Saturday Evening

I haven’t been online too much these days. I’ve had plenty to say but I’ve been so busy working full-time at the gym and getting ready to compete for Entertainer of the Year now two months away I really haven’t had the desire to blog or journal. A few great thoughts this way comes! From the world of sports to gay culture to the events one must attend, I’m breaking down as many as I can fit it! …

Why I Want To Become Mr. E.O.Y. 2014

I’ve decided to enter the National Mr. Entertainer of the Year 2014 contest because I believe it’s the best system overall for me as a professional performer to give who I truly am each and every time I step on the stage. I have big plans for my future as a representative of the E.O.Y. system because let’s face it, win lose draw, we involved are all representing Entertainer of the Year, crown or not. It’s where I belong. There are other choices but when given the logistics, politics and bigger picture, here is where I set my roots for the road ahead.

A New Year Brings New Opportunities

When the new year comes around many things happen. I turn another year better and am reminded of childhood birthdays past when I would receive one gift for both Christmas and Birthday which completely royally sucked. I’ve told (and loving telling) the story about being the third baby born in 1968 in Nashville, TN. They forced labor on a woman who won the prizes for birthing the first of the year and at eighteen I graduated high school with her son. Music City U.S.A. is a small, small world. …

Fabulous Palm Springs Follies Grand Finale

I love a good show. Entertain me, please! For 23 years the Fabulous Palm Springs Follies have been thrilling audiences and saluting the troops of proud America while employing some of the longest and most mature performers at their theatre situated in downtown Palm Springs anyone has ever seen. Due to a struggling economy the show will be bringing down its curtain one final time for their 23rd and final season. Here’s the story… …

What is Trending in Gay Culture Today

Gay Culture means different things to different people. Where you may have someone worshiping the Housewives another may live and breathe LGBT rights through heated politics. Spread across Facebook we witness drag pageantry at its finest while self-adulation spawns through fitness models thanking their fans for 10,000 “likes.” Don’t get me wrong. If you’re building a brand then social your network until your fingers bleed. I’m with you. …

STEVEN MICHAEL IS MY NAME, BOO!

Steven Michael is my name and that’s the way it is. I Google’d myself (insert dirty joke here) and man, I came up feeling ehhh. Where am I? I’m here, dammit! There’s my social media moments Twitter and Facebook but Lady Google has slapped me with the shade of it all. I blog my finger tips to their very nubs and Googlezilla really serves a platter of crickets to many of us in the internet world. If you’re not a major player in the game it’s difficult to get noticed. Oh, Mommie Googlest… I am not, one of your… FANS! …

THE FINALITY OF 2012 – PERSONAL THOUGHTS

We just got in from Kiyosaku where we enjoyed our annual Sushi and Sake Oblivion for New Year’s Eve. It just happens to be my 45th birthday tomorrow, as well. Oh, what a joy having your birthday on New Year’s Day you must be thinking. Ah, my dear reader. You’re being silly. After years of repressed youth not only dealing with receiving just one present…
