duality on the cover: model: Angela Lopez/Carlos Capps photographer:Arron Malachi art direction: Tommy Feldman Special thank you to Angela Lopez for the duality conept idea

Aaaaahhh Duality. Everyone has two sides to their personality. So, this month we decided to take some of the fiercest drag entertainers in the Queen City and showcase their “two halves” for all to see! Every month this “pocket-sized” gay guide will highlight all the bars, restaurants and gayfriendly establishments that make up the fantastic place we call the Queen City. Published monthly, the Pocket Rocket Guide is a smart, fun and cost-effective way to connect with the LGBT community.

advertise with us! Please contact us at: tommy@charlottepocketrocket.com 704.281.8500

The Pocket Rocket is for everyone. Enjoy!

the best Facebook updates of the month

On a scale of one to Adele, how tough was your breakup? I’m leaning on Britney this week. Just saw two cabs on the same street in uptown Charlotte. Take that New York. Was it wrong that I answered all the questions during my job interview today with Whitney Houston song lyrics? "Ooh look, these shoes come with Stability and Support! " "Ooh, I wonder if they come in a Relationship size? " Just dropped off my EpiPen prescription. Soon I will be stabbing all of my friends while they're not looking. Sitting at a gay bar watching a drag show and eating a corn dog without any irony. :-)
