Brittany’s ghost must be up in that house giving simon “moncrack” some sleepless nights!! it was fame only once again at the Palm springs film festival where stars like drunken Mariah carey, clint eastwood, Diablo cody, Helen Mirren, Mary Hart, Jeff Bridges and Quentin tarantino all ruled the Palm springs fame scene!!

Wheee!! firecrotch Lindsay Lohan is at it again!!! her high-ass fuck Ass-istant took lindsay out to the night club (wearing sunglasses), put her in her fancy bmW, and went speeding out of a narrow alleyway crowded with paparazzi, like batman in the batmobile, rushing out of the batcave to save the world!!

Paparazzi can just file his lawsuit right alongside lindsay’s other 500 or so hit-and-run problems!!!! late Night talk show host fire drill!! the networks are giving conan o’Brien the axe! meanwhile, Jay Leno’s solo show is being cancelled due to flailing ratings!!!

Hello Drag Lovers!! You know I have been noticing how wonderful 2010 has already been in the drag scene. Seems to me everyone is happier for some reason. All the shows I have been to or performed at, the energy just seems to be amazing! HMMM? Maybe everyone’s getting laid... lol. Me and my potty mouth. Well in case you didn’t hear or you weren’t able to attend one of the biggest drag shows of the year, the winner of the EOY Pagent is the one and only Miss Shangela. I want to send her my warmest congratulations and I wish her all the best in Nationals. The amazing Chad Michaels was runner-up. To all the girls, Chacha Cache, Delta Work, Jasmine Masters, Detox, Fontasia Lamour, Lady K, Samantha Starr, Savanna, Shae Shae Laresse, William Belli: I want to send you all my drag love because I know you all were amazing in the EOY Pageant and from hearing all the backstage stories about who was going to do what and how many rhinestones were going to be on, so and so’s outfit or how many dancers they were going to have or who was going to have the best hair, I could tell these girls all gave their hundred percent and they all deserve the recognition for their talents and for putting on one of the most amazing drag shows in Southern California Drag history. Rupaul’s Drag Race Season 2 starts next month and I heard

this next season is going to be a hoot! This next season features three SoCal girls including Shangela, Raven and Morgan. Can’t wait to see the cat fights... Meooooow!

The Dreamgirls Revue will be having their once a month theme night/mix and mingle this coming Tuesday 1/26. The theme for the evening will be 80s... Yay!!!! Seems like that was everyone’s favorite decade. I’m sure you are going to get some Madonna, Billy Idol, Cher, Cyndi Lauper, Michael Jackson, Berlin and who knows who else might pop up behind that curtain. Ingenue had me in tears of laughter with her performance called “Rosas.” A tribute to the Rose Ladies on the streets that we all know and love.

“Bump Disco” turned out to be and awesome evening, and for drag lovers where else can you get two Drag Queen Djs?? I’m telling you its Disco Heaven. Inside you will find a state of the art “Disco Lighted” dance floor and tons of Mirror Balls. It’s the dream place to be before waking up the next morning to go to school or work. Come down and Bump every Sunday @ Ripples Nightclub in Long Beach with me and Phyliss Navidad. I heard thru the grapevine that Miss Barbie Q was on TV the other day. Two words, “Work Baby.” “Flawless” Saturday Nights in Riverside @ VIP has been wild lately. The show will be gearing up for it’s 5th Anniversary the beginning of March and I promise you it will be some sick Tranny Heaven. Also “Spotlite” Wednesdays @ VIP will be celebrating their 1 year anniversary in March as well. Speaking of “Spotlite” we just had awesome benefit show for the amazing talented Six Pac . One of the most gorgeous Drag Kings you will ever meet, the benefit was to raise money for his upcoming performance at the Entertainer USofA Nationals. The Show featured the talents of Eddie D Lite, Detox, Miss Conception, Millena Hidaway, Vixen Vale and Pretty Kitty. Six Pac I wish you the best of luck in Nationals babe. Well Babes until next time. Drag lesson of the day, “ Lighting is everything , It can make you or break you, Make sure your wearing enough make up to hide that 5 o’clock shadow.”

Love you Babes, Venus

THE MUSIC By Will Ihavetochangemyname

OK. So, I talked to you about Kesha’s debut single, “Tik Tok,” and now we get the full length album from Ms. Kesha. “Animal” has just dropped, and from the looks of it, she is on course to be the new breakout pop artist of 2010. Over the course of the holiday season, she has sold more singles in a week (610,000 copies of “Tik Tok”) than any other artist ever has. The amazing for singles sales hopefully will translate to album sales because Kesha has the writing skill of a seasoned Pop star. She has other ditties like “Your Love Is My Drug,” “Backstabber,” and “Boots & Boys” that are yet to be released. I actually met Kesha; she is a wild young spirit that is going to take 2010 by force. Dr Luke is the executive producer of the album, but Kesha is her own person/artist, and it comes through loud and clear on “Animal.” I am calling it: Kesha will give Gaga a run for her money this year in the Pop arena. East coast Pop darling in the making, Kristine Elezaj, will be performing her new single, “Let You Know,” and will be making her West Coast debut at West Hollywood’s HERE Lounge on Wednesday 1/27 and at Cherry Pop on Saturday 1/30. A New York native, this stunning blonde has been one-to-watch since her show-stopper performance at WDRE’s Mega Jam Concert this summer with LMFAO and Sean Kingston. Kristine has also been making her mark on the dance scene with sought out choreographer Kevin Maher (who has worked with Britney Spears, New Kids On The Block). Maher has created a dynamic and exciting show for Kristine. Warning: Heidi Montag’s new album, “Superficial” is available now, but it must be too good for this reviewer to get a review copy. I am curious, but not desperate enough to buy it. You never know, she might have a really good product in the end. Remember Paris Hilton’s debut album, it was chock full of hits. Unfortunately, by the time the record came out, Paris was really a hated commodity. Kinda like Heidi Montag. See you on the dance floor bitches!

AQUARIUs (Jan 20- Feb 18) happy birthday, aquarians! in spite of all your protestations to the contrary, you adore attention -- especially when it’s romantic, or at least flirtatious. attention is what you’re going to be getting over these next two weeks: some from the workplace (a good thing) some from your family (also good) and a special invitation/ opportunity coming your way that you’ll see as extra good. It COUlD be from a handsome man wanting your body and your mind…but don’t count on it. Count your blessings instead that what he’ll be offering is probably money – which you need lots more than love! Water Bearers like you: Neil Diamond, ernest Borgnine, Mary Lou Retton PIsces (Feb 19-Mar 20) Oh, dear…the poor little fishies of the world aren’t going to be enjoying the upcoming few weeks much at all. as January fades into february, you’re likely to be facing a crisis – or a handful of them. bad news and turmoil swirls around you like an ill wind. Conflict and calamity and a feeling of imprisonment will also probably be forcibly felt around you as well. Good heavens, does this mean you’ll finally be pitched into a rehab facility, which you so desperately need? If so, consider yourself lucky. that means you’ll probably be alive to see 2011! Fishies like you: eddie Murphy, Billy Zane, Abe Vigoda ARIes (Mar 21-Apr 19) you Rams may be acting decidedly unlike yourself for the next few weeks. In other words, you’re improving! a new studious and serious side of yourself should be evident these days. the fact that your meditative and reflective sides even exist will surely cheer those who care. You’ll also be especially imaginative and loyal to the ones you love and you may find yourself volunteering your time and energy to a specific goal or group you believe in. Yes! Certainly not your usual self! Rams like you: Peyton Manning, Mase, Annabella sciorra tAURUs (Apr 20-May 20) Ouch! What’s got you Bulls into such a tizzy? You’re liable right now to grossly over-react to any small setback and make mountains out of molehills. Just the same as always. Now it’s true that you may have your exhausted ass in a sling and be facing sudden misfortune and ruin. but you may not be. Rather that wringing your hands (or at least the wrinkles that used to be taut skin), concentrate on what you can do to circumvent the impending afflictions and desolations that might be befalling you and you just might succeed. It’s a sure bet you couldn’t be in much worse of a spot than you are now! Bulls like you: chipper Jones, shirley MacLaine, Jacob Underwood GeMINI (May 21-Jun 21) ah…why can’t everyone be you these days, twins? the following couple of weeks should present you with a sense of perfected success, pleasure in your home and an overall feeling of joy and pleasure. your happiness right now could feel more addictive than a Prozac high, but it’s for real. Your relations with your family and the situations that exist in your home should feel deliciously pleasant. the aura of contentment should also cover your love life, too. you seem locked into just the right love relationship for you…whether you realize that’s what it is or not. So wake up, smell the coffee and drink it – while recognizing just how lucky you really are! twins like you: Billy Gilman, Joe Dumars, Rosanne cash cANceR (Jun 22-Jul 22) life might have been a little rough for you crabs since the new year. but the good news as that right now there comes a pause in many of your current struggles. You’ve been given a breather, you might say. You’re probably tensed and ready for another assault any second but you can relax. life just got a little easier to handle. Just don’t think everything’s ended, because it hasn’t. You still a hidden enemy or two you haven’t yet realized who could cause quite a bit of trouble in the home or the workplace. but at least now you have the leisure to ferret out the rats and get your life back together! crabs like you: Mick Fleetwood, Jeff Beck, Joe Penny Leo (Jul 23-Aug 22) the end of January and the beginning of february won’t be a major party time for you lions, and for that you

should be grateful. You’ve actually been enjoying yourself way too much over the past few months and now you’re in some danger of burning yourself out…if not burning yourself up with a lit cigarette as you pass out in your gin-soaked clothes at 4 am. the next few weeks should be about resting up, gathering your strength again and taking care of a little business. You remember how to work, don’t you? It may not be a rave but it sure beats faking aIDS so you can get food from a food Bank! Lions like you: Anna Paquin, Ruth Buzzi, Jennifer Lopez VIRGo (Aug 23-sep 22) Whether or not you virgins are cognizant of the fact, your personal maturity is continuing to grow by leaps and bounds. never in your life have you been better prepared to go out into the world and achieve whatever it is you wish to attain. your courage in boldly striking out and tackling new undertakings can be absolutely impressive to those who aren’t you. In fact, you yourself may not even realize you do these things. you do. and your leadership capabilities can be breathtaking. more than that, you were born to command and now you know it. or you should. strong? one might even say dominant! Virgins like you: Marlee Matlin, craig Kilborn, steve Guttenberg LIBRA (sep 23-oct 20) development, progress and accomplishment are the three words to describe your life for the next two weeks, libra. ever since the year began, you’ve been on a course that’s surely leading you to new heights and new opportunities to achieve all the things you’re anxious to achieve. this is an especially fertile time for you so exploit yourself in every way possible: pick your brains for new kernels of creativity in the workplace and work on inventive new ways to express your sexuality and venus-given talents at loving. Who knows where all this attainment might lead you? Wherever it is, it’s got to be better than the dark alleys you’ve already visited! Librans like you: Phil Hartman, Linda Mccartney, Jim Henson scoRPIo (oct 21-Nov 22) OK, you’d better sit down and read this carefully, Scorpio. these upcoming two weeks you’re facing aren’t going to be fun. In fact, they’re almost guaranteed to be packed with sadness and even some public embarrassment. a strong sense of loneliness hovers around you right now in a way that can be overpowering. needless to say, it’s your love life that’s at the root of most of your problems. Sure, your money situation sucks – but doesn’t it always? Whether you’re about to have a painful romantic breakup or whether you’re in a separation that’s ripping your guts apart, you’re desperately trying to patch up the situation. and sometimes these things can’t be fixed. But sometimes they can, so keep on working your scuzzy little ass off over it! scorpions like you: Ben Gillies, Monica, Kevin Kline sAGIttARIUs (Nov 23-Dec 21) the character of Pollyanna was probably written with a centaur like you in mind. sometimes those around you are so sick of your ceaseless optimism, they’d like to slap you…or worse. but right now, optimistic is precisely what you should be feeling. the immediate future should glisten with imminent bright prospects and satisfaction. there’s nothing like the promise of opportunity to make you feel filled with hope. and for once, all that glitters isn’t fool’s gold. look for good omens and you’ll find them because you’re riding high with luck and self-generated positive situations. Get ready to celebrate, the good times are a-comin’! Archers like you: christina Applegate, Amy Grant, Katherine Heigl cAPRIcoRN (Dec 22-Jan 19) as midas-like as you Goats can be when it comes to business and money, January has most likely proven to be a rather rocky road for you. this won’t change overnight so expect to february to usher in more of the same. You’re almost surely experiencing a measure of disappointment on the work scene and a sense of disillusion in the love department. shyness and modesty may also keep you from even thinking about dating anyone new. Don’t give up, though. as dismal as your life might seem at this moment, the middle of february will bring you some shocking and happy surprises. cross my heart! Goats like you: Ricky Martin, Annie Lennox, Dido

by Joshua Miller • •

ho is the newest and biggest name in the Los Angeles Drag World? Where did she come from? How is she doing it!? What is all the BUZZ!!!??? It is none other then Shangela, The Debutantess of the Deep South, hailing from Paris, Texas this young diva has come, seen and conquered the drag scene. Not only is she on Season Two of MTV Logo’s hit series RuPaul’s Drag Race, but she has just won the first EVER Miss California Entertainer of the Year Pageant at The House of Blues on Sunset Boulevard. When I say “won” the pageant that is an understatement… She DESTROYED the competition. The presentation was flawless, the evening gown was breathtaking and her talent was well… to die for! Back flips, dancers and even a dvd intro where she was imposed in the “New Moon” movie trailer. Shangela has made is very clear that this is not a game and she is here to stay. Remember the name Shangela, better yet, I’d like to see you try to forget it, I feel like she has only begun.

How long have you been doing drag? What/Who inspired you to become a drag entertainer? I have been doing drag exactly 373 days! I’ve always been fascinated with the art of drag performance. It goes back to when I was a back-up dancer for some of the best drag performers in Dallas, Texas. Texas drag performers are NO JOKE. I learned a lot. From then I kind of fell into being in the drag spotlight and I’m loving it more every day! What was one thing you learned (took home) from RuPaul’s Drag Race? In addition to a free make-up kit? Haha! One of the greatest drag experiences of my young career. Who did you connect with the most on the show? There are tons of great girls. The entire cast is absolutely amazing, but there is no doubt that my strongest connection is to my sister, Sahara Davenport from New York City. We attended college together in Dallas, are best friends, and had NO IDEA we would both be on the show until we arrived on set. Watch the new season and you’ll see our reactions! The funny thing is, Sahara had never seen “Shangela.” At The California Entertainer of the Year Pageant (EOY) you did back flips, death-drops (SHABLAM!), dis-

01-15-10 42

appearing acts and costume changes... How long did it take for you to prepare for EOY? Now that the pageant is over... I’m gonna give you the honest answer that many won’t believe. Because I was in Texas for the entire month of December for my mother’s surgery, I returned to Los Angeles and with the help of my friends I put my entire package together in 12 days! LONG, LONG rehearsals. And now... A BITCH IS TIRED! You beat out some stiff competition; some of the contestants have been doing pageants for YEARS! How does it feel to have become the FIRST EVER Ms California Entertainer of the Year? I was among some of the greatest performers in the state of California for California EOY. I was humbled and felt an even greater responsibility to bring an A-game package and hope for the best. What can people expect from you at Nationals? Competition at the nationals is a whole new ball game for me. I’m going to have to bring even more kicks, tricks, and rhinestones! What is playing in your iPod/mp3 player right now? Telephone (Gaga/Be-

yonce) because I’ll be soon performing it with my home girl Rhea Litre! When you are done with drag (if that ever happens), what do you want your legacy to be? My heart lies in comedy and making people laugh. I am actually building a career in stand-up comedy and I’ll be performing this Saturday 1/16 8pm at the Comedy Store (“Belly Room”) on Sunset! In 3 words please describe a “Shangela Performance.” WHAT. THE. FUCK! What words of advice do you have for any aspiring Drag Queens? If you are passionate about being a performer, go for it! No matter how much or how little experience you may have it should all be fun and full of fierceness! Find Shangela on Facebook to keep up with where she is going next:

LADY EQUALITY BUNNY Many gay New Yorkers were crushed by the defeat of the gay marriage bill in our state Senate. I’ve never seen so many disgusted Facebook postings on any other subject except maybe “I’m bored at work.” But while changing your middle name on Facebook to “Equality” is a nice gesture, if that’s the extent of your activism you can give up on holy matrimony once and for all. As Derek Hartley from Sirius OutQ radio once told me, “The gay community has become reactive rather than proactive.” We respond when something happens we don’t like, but most of us aren’t in the trenches fighting for anything we want to happen.

It wasn’t always this way. We banded together in the 80’s to form ACT UP to combat the government’s slow response to AIDS. And Stonewall was a rollicking, brick-throwing skirmish in response to police harassment which gave birth to our whole civil rights movement. If gay marriage is your priority then you must go fight for it, and that means getting involved in the process. Part of that process is joining the groups like Empire State Pride Agenda and contributing, volunteering, and signing and forwarding petitions. What? You want something for nothing? Dream on. Ask yourselves who else supports same-sex unions outside of the gay community. The answer is progressive democrats and never republicans, so we must ally ourselves with those in the straight world who support our right to marry. Look at the other issues the left focuses on from health care reform, to halting global warming, to ending the two wars which we’re losing and can’t afford. Chances are, you’re in agreement with the rest of the progressive agenda. By joining them on all they do, you’re strengthening your own chances of walking down that aisle one day. Dennis Kucinich was the only democratic primary candidate who supported gay marriage. I never heard ANY support for him in the gay community. Oh, you didn’t know he supported gay marriage? Then you aren’t clear on the issues and you need to either get a grip or stop whining. By the same token, we also must end our associations with the groups which consistently block our quest for equal rights. Sorry, but that means organized religion. Church. One Sunday per year, gays in the country band together to celebrate gay pride and show our strength in numbers. But EVERY Sunday, churches congregate to advance their often hate-filled agendas. How do the odds of 52-1 in their favor sound to you? Buddhism is the only major religion which doesn’t have an anti-gay slant. Of course, not every faith has a strong anti-gay bias, but let’s check out the attitudes of a few we know and love to hate. Islam: 10 men including 8 teenagers are currently awaiting execution for sodomy in Iran. Images of two Iranian teen boys who were sentenced to death by hanging shocked the world in ’05. (Please don’t ask whether or not they were well-hung.) Other Muslim nations like Nigeria and Afghanistan only stone gays to death. Catholicism: Not only did the closet-case-filled Catholic church donate $550,000 to defeat gay marriage in this country as of October, the pope decreed in Cameroon that condoms DO NOT prevent HIV transmission. Hungh? The pope isn’t some fringe element within his church; he’s the #1 head honcho! How the hell is he going to sentence his followers to death by flying in the face of the fact that rubbers reduce HIV transmissions by 80%? You can say your prayers if this hot mess is your spiritual leader. And Benedict, please change that one dress! Protestantism: Remember Pastor Rick Warren who sparked outrage from gays when he was selected to speak at Obama’s inauguration? Rick is one of many US fundamentalist nuts who have their hand in Uganda’s pending legislation which would sentence gays to life imprisonment and recommend the death penalty on HIV + gays. These US Christian leaders know that murdering gays wouldn’t fly in the US, so they push their evil policies in Uganda. These are the guys who brought us the Salem witch trials and we’re their new witches! No one’s buying a lot of gifts in a recession, so here’s a wonderful gift you can give yourself for free: GIVE UP ON ORGANIZED RELIGION. Remember how we took back the word “queer” from bigots who insulted us with it to remove it’s sting? Instead of letting these virulently anti-gay crackpots denounce (or kill) us, it’s high time that the gays denounce the church instead. I don’t seek gay marriage any more than I want gay baptism—simply because it’s a religious sacrament and the organized religions don’t support my equal rights. If I’m a second class citizen in their eyes, then in no way can I get behind their teachings. Civil unions are fine by me. “But I believe in God,” you protest. The god that from childhood is crammed down your throats more often than even a pedophile priest’s cock is? The god from a version of the bible that was translated by that nelly wig-wearing queen King James? I enjoyed Sleeping Beauty, Rumplestiltskin, and many other fairy tales when I was a kid. But you don’t carry these with you into adulthood and use them as a game plan for your lives. (Except for maybe Cinderella.) So why take the contradictory testaments of the bible any more seriously than other childhood fables? I’m not asking you to compromise your religious beliefs—only to examine if they’re empowering anti-gay bigots with every contribution you place in that collection plate. Of course there are more accepting branches of Christianity than fundamentalists. Quakers even perform gay weddings. But on the whole, organized religion is our enemy and you can’t fight it until you’ve defined it. Can we ever win by backing a belief system which denies us equal rights? Never. So this Christmas, give the gift of freedom from organized religion. It doesn’t cost you one thin dime. Amen to that!

Not another titleholder

as los angeles leather rolls around, I’m to tell you why you should run for one of the titles that the leather community offers. I can hear your eyes rolling. No way! I’m too shy. too much work. I’m not good looking enough. a friend gave me an interesting perspective on titles. a title year is like your life, compressed into one year; a year which can show you what you really care about, what your faults really are, who truly supports you, what you honestly enjoy doing. It’s an opportunity to live your life completely differently. are some of the reasons why not to run for a title, and some reasons why you shoUld. the biggie, first: I’m too shy. trust me, I am shy; painfully shy. If this is your reason for not running, let me ask: do you like being shy? I know I don’t. Having a title is a fantastic opportunity to challenge shyness and fight it head on. Your title is a door opener. It’s your JOB to talk to strangers, other shy strangers, hot strangers and fresh meat from out of town. People want you to talk to them. It’s too much work. Having a title is as much or as little work as you make it. many titleholders are just looking for a little fun...and that’s okay. Most producers have only a few expectations of their titleholder. show up at a few events, hang around the bar making people feel welcome. bars are always looking for something can be that something different. I’m not good looking enough. look at the titleholders around the community. We are a motley crew of looks, sizes, backgrounds. What i can tell you is this...running for a title will make you look at yourself differently, it’ll bring out the things that are most attractive about you from your charm to your physique to your dedication to your beautiful green eyes to your infectious laugh. having run for and won mr. Regiment and american leatherman has given me the confidence to go to events on my own and speak to people I’ve never met before. It’s made me realize that I could make a lasting impact on our community. I’ve made friends I would never have met otherwise and I’m a greater me for the experience. If you’d like to know more about upcoming contests, shoot me an email at cheers,

THE PORN By Scotty B

(between Jayden Grey and Drew Cutler)


Welcome back Lex Sabre! Last week the lean and hung porn star stopped by my show with Jayden Grey ( ) as his costar. These two twunks (Jayden Grey says that term is the newest word for a cross between a twink and a hunk) played nicely together and Lex surprised the crowd by giving up his latest endeavor as he reenters the world of porn. Known as a total top in all of his movies, Lex gave up his anal-virginity for Raging Stallion’s newest site Look for the scene coming very soon Lex says!


Speaking of bottoming, Raging Stallion exclusive and Man Of The Year Austin Wilde, bottomed onscreen for twink boy Dustin Michaels. The bi-racial studio exclusive has a hunky mohawk, giving us some assurance that this scene was filmed right after his movie ‘The Trap’ was shot for Raging Stallion. Finally on the Wilde scene, turns out this star is taken and dating a regular joe from the Midwest but won’t say anything more about him. Is he hot? We don’t know. Is he versatile? Austin says YES. Is his new beau out of the closet? Apparently not says Austin!! Whoever this chap is congrats to Austin and I hope he’s treating you well – if not come back to me!!!
