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.

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… …

Summertime in Palm Springs Revisited

Ah, summertime and the living is easy… and quite warm at times! As the sun heats us all up and makes some of us wonder why we live in the desert with the extreme heat, how does one deal?! The very thought of summer conjures up memories for me of attending summer school (twice) during my teenage years. The first time I missed cheerleading camp and the next I wasted my time not skipping school and getting my GED, instead. I’ve never applied to a job that has once required seeing my high school diploma. …

SEXY GAY HALLOWEEN COSTUMES

Here we go! It’s Halloween time. I’ve had a few people ask what I’d be wearing on Arenas Road for their block party and costume contest come the scary night that the dead walk amongst us. I’m still deciding on what drag I’ll display or if I’ll even do drag. It’s been quite a while. But I saw a few hot sexy items on Amazon that caught my eye. …

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. …

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. …
