Another Pride in Palm Springs down for the record books. The annual festival began on Friday, however, it’s super gay in this city every day so that’s that. Saturday I ran downtown to check out the stage we were performing on and to support my fellow entertainers. The sunshine was coming down from the skies above so […]

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… …

WHAT HAPPENED TO “THE BOTTOM LINE?”

Working in the heart of Queerville at World Gym Palm Springs gives me prime placement for knowing what’s happening around town and who exactly is making it happen. In the last month I have had an amazing amount of people who have finally tuned in to the fact that The Bottom Line and PULP are no longer landing on newsstands and wanted to find out why. …

FANTASY SPRINGS WELCOMES ADAM LAMBERT

Glam rocker and shock talker Adam Lambert brings his solo show to Fantasy Springs tomorrow evening July 21. Promoting his newest album Trespassing, Adam promises an evening of perfected guy-liner, blinged-out costumery and a pelvic thrust or two. We would love to be going but San Diego Pride calls us down south and a trip to Black’s Beach will provide the sandcastle backdrop. I’ll throw some Adam Lambert on the playlist for the road trip. …

“MAGIC MIKE” MOVIE – SIZZLE OR FIZZLE?

We just returned from seeing the Channing Tatum driven feature Magic Mike at Mary Pickford Theaters. Let’s get right into it. Spoiler alerts ahead! Unfortunately, the hype is stronger than the actual film. I was actually excited about seeing it. Hello?! We actually paid for it. Two tickets – $15. We never go to the movies because with the cost for concessions it can become a rather pricey excursion. …

Since having Bobbie on the blog for the Picture Me Happy event at ACE, I had heard only wonderful things about her from people in the know and fans of her work on television. …
