LADY BUNNY... MUCH SCARIER THAN HALLOWEEN IS JUST AROUND THE CORNER!

I

am so sick of hearing gays whine, “I voted for Hillary”, whenever someone gripes about Obama. Hillary isn’t running in the approaching mid-term election. So stop being such babies and deal with the choices in front of you. Or be prepared to lose… BIG! A low turn-out is predicted, but there is so much at stake. If we stay home because we’re dissatisfied with Obama, this is what could happen: the Democrats, the economy (which Bush, not Obama, left in tatters), the fact that DADT has not been repealed, or that we can’t get married, would allow the tea party to elect candidates to represent their districts. But once in office, they won’t just be making laws for their districts. They’ll also be voting on issues that affect the whole country. I’m disenchanted with the Obama administration, and the current Congress as well. But I’ll take disenchanted over fear any day. Petrified is how I feel about the tea party. If your primary agenda is about repealing DADT and allowing same-sex marriage, you can kiss both of these goodbye if the GOP triumphs! No, Obama hasn’t repealed DADT, but he has promised the repeal “on his watch”. And he’s kept most of his promises so far. How many republican lawyers support its repeal or even pay lip service to it?

just look at the freak show that’s waiting in the wings if you don’t exercise your vote.

And Christine O’Donnell, the tea party candidate from Delaware, considers masturbation to be adultery. How do you think this nut views gays’ right to marry? Or even exist? Many tea party candidates are so viciously anti-abortion that they would force a rape victim, even ones who get raped by a relative, to give birth to that child. Forget worrying about your baby daddy. Imagine having your daddy’s baby? Most would agree this is an incredibly extreme and heartless position.

But the tea party’s insane demands don’t stop there. Bloomberg Magazine’s new cover article reports, “Why Business Doesn’t Trust The Tea Party”. Usually, republicans are tireless supporters of big business. Yet the tea party has its nose buried so deep in the Bible that they can’t even create policies appealing to the corporate world! Nor are they pulling for the average Joe. Common tea party demands are supposed to end the not perfect, but better-than-nothing ObamaCare, along with social security and minimum wage. WHO THE HELL WOULDN’T WANT A MINIMUM WAGE? Hmmm… I can’t think of anyone, except possibly a disgruntled mob of gun-toting, racist evangelicals who want to take back their country from a president who they still believe is a Muslim not born in the U.S. Even the garden-variety republicans dismissed these turds as too far out until they started winning primaries. Now the GOP is funneling a fortune into backing their campaigns. Remember the republican candidate who became a national laughing stock after suggesting that we fix health care by returning to the days when we traded chickens with our doctors? After that ridiculous claim, she lost the nomination to Sharron Angle, who actually wants to outlaw booze… and she’s representing Nevada, home of Las Vegas! This freak may unseat current House leader Harry Reid, and she’s so deranged that most of the top Nevada republicans have endorsed her democratic opponent. HELP! We can’t permit the most extreme brand of republican to arise in decades to gain ground in Congress. For better or for worse, Democrats are the party that supports gay rights in general. They’re in deep trouble because everyone’s broke, and people tend to blame the party in power. Even in a robust economy, mid-term elections tend to unseat incumbents. So, just look at the freak show that’s waiting in the wings if you don’t exercise your vote. Staying home is simply not an option!

an the young LGBT community believe “It Gets Better” when we’re still being beat up for being Gay?! Has President Obama forgotten that we still don’t have the marriage right, and does that tell the Gays of any age that it’s getting better? ....Seriously........ NO SERIOUSLY! As JoAnne Colonna and I were whisked off to see Broadway Legend Camille Saviola in her one woman show, “Ancora Pazzo”, it was a night to remember. She entered portraying one of her various characters, and all you could hear was the roar that came over the awaiting, packed house. Making her way to the stage, she tossed out little baggies of macaroni aka pasta as she sang “Ancora Pazzo”, a song written by the Ms. Saviola herself. Her band: Musical Director Gerald Sternbac, also on piano, Zick, Jonny Morrow on bass, and Kiel Feher on drums. Ms. Saviola sang “Soliloquy” from Carousel, “River Deep, Mountain High” (a few bars of) “Mary’s a Grand Old Name”, “It Ain’t Necessarily So” (with special lyrics written by Saviola), followed by a few bars of “One for My Baby (And One More for the Road); a ballad version of “There’s No Business Like Show Business”, and “The Rose Tattoo” from Barry Keating’s Hollywood Opera. The audience called, “Encore! Encore!” and Saviola, being true blood of Broadway, came out singing “My Book” from “Tango Apasionado”. It was a star-studded night in the house with Doris Roberts, Donna Mills, Anna Maria Horsford, John Glover... just to name a few. From the looks and sounds of it, Camille Saviola is not a force to be reckoned with. This is a must-see show. “Ancora Pazzo”! can be seen on NOVEMBER 11th, 2010, at BARRE @Vermont Restaurant. A special Thank You to Shane Scheel for a wonderful nigh!. After dinner, Diane Warren and I made our way to Luck Strike Lanes for Dannielle Thomas’s birthday bash -- it was balls to the wall. Cocktails and cake for everyone, that cake being cheese cake, and since I’m Italian, hey… need I say more?! Well I have to say it, and yes I will, at the party was recording artist, Haviland Stillwell (who was just seen at Joe’s Pub), Christopher J. Hanke, Nolan Funk, Brandon Liberati, Craig Ramsay (trainer on Bravo’s “Thintervention” with Jackie Warner). This was one hot party... and the Diva of high heel pumps, Leslie Sank! Gays, she’s a woman after our own Gay hearts -- Love her! Happy Birthday, Dannielle! It’s always a pleasure to see all of you!! It was cocktail time as jewelry designer Glynneth B, Emma B, and I met up to talk about the Glynneth B Collection and upcoming photo sessions with new designs. Glyn-

NY-10-29-10.indd 10

neth shared some one-on-one with me, and as you know, I always share with all of you. Her jewelry can be seen on the cover of Vibe worn by Keri Hilson on Lady Antebellum, Carrie Underwood, Natalie Cole (on the cover of her autobiography), and Lindsay Lohan. Also, look for her collection on Americas Next Top Model. You can see her collection at: www.glynnethbjewelry.com. I was the invited guest of Diane Warren for a private party and performance of the group Due Voci. It was a stunning evening. Due Voci mesmerized the room with their stunning vocals and fabulous musicians. Legendary Songwriter, Diane Warren, joined forces with Grammy winning producer Humberto Gatica to create Due Voci, featuring the magnificent voices of Kelly Levesque and Tyler Hamilton who sang classic reinterpretations of Warren’s many hits. Their album “Due Voci” was released on Universal Music Enterprises (UME). They sang “Unbreak My Heart”, “How Do I Live Without You”, and “Catch My Breath”, to name a few. Among the invited guests were Sandra Bernhard, Haviland Stillwell, Glynneth B, Emma B, and Steven Rosen. For more information on the group: www.duevoci.com. Sunday night, Cherry Jubilee’s Glammy Awards @ Splash brought out the best of the best, and yes, 2010 Glammys was the best yet. Its Hostess for the evening, Bianca Del Rio and Shequida kept us well entertained. Thank You, Cherry Jubilee, for a wonderful event! Thank You, Brian Landeche, and the Splash Family for hosting the night. Yes, this year, I presented along with Ginger Snap and Ken Hunt. A side note - just before we started, I asked the packed house to shout out the word LOVE for the six teens, Tyler Clementi, Asher Brown, Seth Walsh, Justin Aaberg, Raymond Chase and Billy Lucas who committed suicide because of homophobic abuse in their homes and at their schools. The sound was chilling as the room roared and came together as one! As I’ve said before, the only way to see a change is to make a change!!

Morgan, Jesse Volt & Ginger Snap at the GLAMMYS Happy Birthday to Tony Fornabaio Happy Birthday to Dougie Meyer

Best to all of you. Frankie C.

THE WONDERFUL WORLD OF WIGS By Sherry Vine

just got back from Zurich, Switzerland where I did three shows for the reopening of the largest gay club there, T&M. T&M has been around for some 25 years owned by drag queens Petra and Tamara. They remodeled and this was the official opening weekend. I’ve performed there before several times but hadn’t been since 2004! I was so lucky to get work release from high school to be able to go… I had the best time! Every night was better than the previous! The club was full and people were so nice - and cute!! I got the chance to meet and hang out with many sisters! Jazzmin Dian Moore is gorgeous. She looks exactly like Beyonce but skinny! Lol. We hung out my first night and then she invited to be a guest on her radio show, Zurich Pride, the next night. It’s so weird doing a radio spot in drag! It’s like, “Why am I in drag??” Just kidding. I had to go to the club right after to do a photo shoot for the gay rag there. Oh the life of an international prostitute! Anyhoo- had a blast with Jazzmin. I also met Hellmine Tell! So funny!! Total club kid drag and she stands about 7’! There was the cutest Italian boy working behind the bar who said he does drag, Miss Serendipity. He’s 23 years old but doesn’t like slightly younger blondes… I saw pictures and he looks real Miss Thing! He’s part of monthly party called Balkan Girls, created by Nikita. She’s originally from Serbia and organizes

NY-10-29-10.indd 12

the event with about 10 different drags! HOT!!! She kept forcing me to do shots of this Serbian fire water. I now have a hole in my stomach thank you! LOL. I hope you’ve been following The Queens of Drag: NYC! Every Monday there’s a new queen featured and you can see them exclusively on gay.com. I was the first one (you have no idea how many “producers” I had to sleep with!), then Lady Bunny’s, perhaps the funniest thing I’ve ever seen. Then came Bianca del Rio. It wasn’t easy to understand Bianca but I’ve never seen anyone scrub a toilet like that! Last week was Hedda. And this week my dear sister, Peppermint! Peppermint is the hardest working, nicest queen in town. I just adore her. She can turn out a house song, rock it or tear the roof off with her original pop songs. Her videos are gorgeous. We’ve worked together many times including my video parody of “Telephone” (you can see it uncensored at sherryvine.com). We actually have a gig together this Saturday at Bump in New Jersey.

More later, meow. Sherry www.SherryVine.com The Sherry Vine Show every Sunday at Barracuda @ Midnight Sherrylicious every Monday at VIG 27 @ 9pm

THE FUNNY GIRL HEADLINES ATLANTIC CITY’S GAY HALLOWEEN WEEKEND BY Drew LiPiNskY

A

tlantic City is turning Halloween into HalloQueen this year, with Harrah’s OUT in AC, a weekend of LGBT-themed parties and events, October 29th through 31st. A bevy of gay royalty will be on hand to celebrate the Fall Carnival including “The Queen of All Media” Perez Hilton, Queens of Comedy Margaret Cho and Sandra Bernhard, in addition to Whitney Cummings, Jersey Shore’s Jenni “JWoww” Farley, dance diva Kristine W, and more. We spoke with Margaret Cho, who will be taking the stage with Sandra Bernhard for The Queens of Comedy show at Caesars Maximus Theatre, to find out what tricks and treats she has up her sleeve for Halloween weekend.

First of all, your new album is a smash! Thank you. It’s a music album! It’s a comedy album, just in music form. Does being a comedian make it harder to get people to take your music seriously? It does make it harder when you are known for one thing to do something else. But I’m always up for a challenge. Who are some of your music idols? Linda Perry, Nile Rodgers… I would love to do one day do something with David Bowie - that’s my dream! Do you plan to incorporate music into your Out in AC show? My show is mostly comedy and some comedy songs. I am always and forever a standup comic.

NY-10-29-10.indd 14

Sandra Bernhard will also be at Out in AC. Any chance for a duet? That would be amazing. Sandra has a killer voice and is so hilarious. I would love, love, love to sing with her! Out in AC takes place over Halloween weekend this year. What was your best Halloween costume ever? The year I was Brigitte Lin from Chungking Express. Also, the year I was Björk from Dancer in the Dark! Will we find you in the audience at any other events in Atlantic City for Out in AC? Oh sure, I will definitely be all out and about! Catch me if you can! Harrah’s OUT in AC takes place October 29th through 31st. For tickets and event info, visit harrahs.com/getoutinac

GO TO MONTREAL!!!

Odyssey Magazine recently visited Montreal, Canada… Montreal reminds Odyssey of the 1980’s set in a French Gothic style. Odyssey loves Stockbar! It is the most amazing professional strip palace in the entire North American continent, with one of the most stunning bar interiors in the world. It’s so state-of-the-art! Their strippers go totally nude (and most of them are French and uncut). The lap dance rooms are fit for a king! Odyssey also loved… Unity, Campus, Le Cocktail, Le Stud & Complexe Sky! The bar at Mado, in the tradition of French lifestyle features Cabaret acts with synchronized dancers. The private rooms are spacious and divine. One of the best bars to go partying and dancing is called Parking. It has several rooms with different atmospheres. There are about a dozen bath houses in the city and even more gay guest houses! All the gay establishments are conveniently located close to one another. Odyssey stayed at the gorgeous Opus Hotel. Montreal is very cute and not dangerously seedy- very French sophisticated. Also, just 45 minutes outside Montreal is one of North America’s biggest ski resorts if you were to visit during the winter! Montreal is just a 6-hour drive from Manhattan. The reason the 80’s were so cool in the US was that we use to have male sex clubs, bath houses, gay guest houses, stripper bars & drag bars, but since then times have changed... Well Montreal still has them! It is not stuck in the 1980’s at all though, it’s actually very progressive and 2010, it just hasn’t lost the most important part of being charming! Odyssey Magazine loves Montreal and definitely recommends you take the first gay boat there and PARTY!!!
