I've watched every season of RuPaul's Drag Race, I've done drag as Samantha Fox and I just co-wrote a book with none other than Alaska, so count me in when another RuPaul's Drag Race: Battle of the Seasons event hits NYC.

This past week's extravaganza was a blast! I was able to do the VIP meet-and-greet hour, where I shot all the girls—Manila Luzon, Miss Fame, Sharon Needles, Katya, Jinkx Monsoon, Violet Chachki, Adore Delano, Ginger Minj and Alaska herself—and then even managed to work my way backstage for some quality time with the low-lifes in high heels.

IMG_6278The merch available was incredible.

IMG_6362With so much feminine beauty around, I still couldn't help noticing the boy of anyone's dreams.

IMG_6423This one also would not have to sashay away.

Backstage was a hoot. Or a hooter.

Sharon was friendly as could be, and embracing a far less Goth look, one of which Eve Arden would approve.

Jinkx Monsoon and Major Scales are back with The Vaudevillians II: Bringing Up Baby, a drag show that continues their  tradition of mining the past to make fun of the present. The twist this time is that Jinkx's character is preggers, but don't expect me to give away the third trimester of the show—you'll have to check that out yourself.

DSC05342The original Vaudevillians and The Vaudevillians II are playing now at the Laurie Beechman.

For a chance to win tickets to The Vaudevillians II, comment this blog with your favorite modern song you wish Jinkx and Major Scales would cover with a '20s spin.

I'll pick 1 of you at random to win 1 week from tonight at 5 p.m. ET. You must be in the NYC area and able to attend a show.

Good luck!

Christ Returns To NYC: RETURN TO GAY GARDENS Comments (0)

IMG_3439Thomas Dekker, Peaches Christ, Jinkx Monsoon, Mink Stole & Bob the Drag Queen

Barely made it to the second sold-out show of Return to Gray Gardens, the one-night-only presentation by Peaches Christ (fresh, arguably, from San Francisco) that spoofed the classique Grey Gardens (1975).

Christ came through with a stellar case, including Thomas Dekker (Heroes, All About Evil), Mink Stole of John Waters infamy and NYC's own Bob the Drag Queen, attempting Onassis realness. Two hunks were on hand to play the Maysles Brothers, who directed the original. (One was doing double-duty as choreographer, werk.)

IMG_3426Lots of pussy on that stage.

Jinkx Monsoon, as Little Edie from the film, was the obvious highlight, but you know that if you saw her Snatch Game appearance on RuPaul's Drag Race, which the bitch won in a walk.

The next time you get a chance to see Jinkx in NYC is in The Vaudevillians: Bringing Up Baby May 21—24, 2015, at the Laurie Beechman. The first one was BRILLIANT.
