Horoscopes

BY Dawn Daniels (845) 548-8570 | ddpsychick@gmail.com

Aries - With the moon waning it will take you

out of your slump. Make sure you put on a smile and it will turn into a real one. It’s time for you to party. Go see a show and a special someone will appear. 3, 9, 13, 17, 48, 50

Taurus - The moon is sitting in your entertainment zone. It means it’s time to party. Go for the gold ring; enjoy who is around you and stop looking for more. Work is busy but the payoff will be big. 3, 10, 16, 22, 33, 34 Gemini - Home life improves due to your compromising skills, and an unusual gift will be received. A chance for improvement in your finances is around the corner. Go watch a show or movie. 3, 9, 13, 17, 24, 48 Cancer - This is the week to make any

positive moves at work. Ask for a new position or start your own; it will be a success. Romance heats up. Go to a show or movie and it will bring you joy. 2, 7, 41, 44, 48, 50

Leo - With the moon in your employment sector you will achieve something big. However, don’t ignore the smaller things in life. Do a fun activity with a loved one. Be responsive to all. 3, 6, 15, 23, 41, 50 Virgo

- Saturn leaving your cash zone means big things for your bottom dollar. When it starts to flow, put some away. Recently shelved plans are back on the agenda. Make sure everyone is included. Go out and enjoy. 2, 7, 11, 21, 44, 51

Libra - Prudent planets turn your bank account totally around. Use some of your new-found wealth to go out with a loved one to just have fun. An unexpected gift is on the way. 3, 9, 10, 13, 17, 50 Scorpio

- The moon is in your health zone. You will commit to a new health regime that increases your energy, and you will see positive results at work and home. Take a loved one out. 3, 7, 11, 21, 48, 50

Sagittarius - Saturn is in your R&R zone. It is time to relax and go to a show or take a little trip with a loved one. You are worried about money for the holidays, but don’t. It will be there. Buy that special someone a gift they want. 3, 5, 17, 25, 37, 44 Capricorn - The moon sits in your emotion sector. That brings you up and down, but if you stay positive it will bring you wonderful gifts. Your job is busy but in the end you will be financially compensated. Go out to a show. 2, 6, 17, 21, 48, 50 Aquarius - The water is calling you. It is time to take a little trip and go out to a show with a loved one. Stop ignoring a medical condition. 2, 7, 13, 17, 48, 50

Pisces - The dreamer is given some of his

most-wanted desires, but be certain you’re ready for the responsibilities. The moon is in your R&R sector, so get out there and enjoy yourself. 3, 5, 13, 21, 48, 50

Getting Steamy East Side & West Side Clubs

I

f you’ve ever read Get Out! magazine then you know what we are all about: urging New York’s gays to get off…their computers, their couches, their asses…and get out into the venues that make this the most exciting city in the world for our community. Few places embody that notion more than the East Side Club and the West Side Club—two of the city’s “social and relaxation clubs” for gay men— which shun the era of Manhunt.net and embrace the old-school notion of finding a trick face to face. While the clubs are touted as a place to unwind, grab a shower, relax in a sauna or watch a movie “with other like-minded gentlemen,” it is clear the only thing that’s on these men’s minds is having a good time. And, we’re down with that. Whether you’re the hookup type or not, we know you have an Adam4Adam account, or you have perused the “men seeking men” section of Craigslist, or at least have added a hot stranger (probably shirtless in his profile picture) on Facebook, all with at least a sliver of hope that, one day, it will lead to you getting down and dirty. Point being, the East and West Side Clubs take the chance out of the equation. There is something to be said about walking into a place where you know what you’re getting, and you get what you want. Open 365 days a year, 24 hours a day, the clubs offer reasonable rates for a locker ($17 weekday/$20 weekend per visit) or private room (starting at $20/$22) and complete access to roam around in a towel (or more, or less) with other guys who are looking for what you’ve got to offer. A steam? A movie? Something more? We gave the clubs an impromptu visit and were pleasantly surprised with the experience: They were spotlessly clean, with a towel and other necessities provided with the cover charge; the staff, who didn’t know we were from this magazine, were friendly but discreet and escorted us to our rooms; and the other visitors, from the twinks to the bears and the Chelsea boys in between, readily flaunted their goods and desires without a hint of pretentiousness or timidity. If you’re used to endless “What are you looking for?”s to guys 5.7 miles away on Grindr, it is refreshing when the only question you need to ask is “Your room or mine?”

Sahara Davenport EULOGY BY Sir Honey Davenport

On Monday, October 1, 2012,the world lost a legend, and I lost a close friend and mentor.This is by far the hardest topic I’ve ever written about. I first met Sahara Davenport when she lived across the street from me. At the time I was a back-up dancer for Peppermint, and I was so excited about and scared of the art of drag. One day while visiting Sahara, I met the lovely Deja Davenport. I grew very close with Deja and Sahara, and they decided to take me under their wings. Both of them gave me the love, support, and knowledge that is needed to be a successful queen in NYC.The greatest thing Sahara ever taught me was “be the difference.” She said that was what it meant to be a Davenport. We needed to be the change we wanted in the world.


E

very queen has their diva who they adore. For some of us, that diva is RuPaul. For others it is Sharon Needles. For me it was Sahara Davenport. I remember watching her show at Therapy the day she was eliminated from RuPaul’s Drag Race. She said, “I was going to call off work today, but that has no class, and my friends deserve better.” She then delivered one of the fiercest performances I have ever seen in my life. She performed Vernessa Mitchell’s “This Joy,” one of Sahara’s signature songs. I remember going into the dressing room and telling her that she was so amazing and if I could ever be that great, even just once, my whole career would have meaning.

Sahara always pushed me to follow my passion, making music. She helped me with everything: writing my first contracts, creating my online biography and providing me with fierce costumes. And I was not her only protégé. She was a stand for good drag. She was always teaching, inspiring and elevating young queens: from Roxy Couture to Kiki Darling and many, many more. She was art, beauty and sassiness all rolled into one high-kicking, jump-splitting, pointshoe-wearing diva. Sahara always said that if your look is not on point, it doesn’t matter how good you are: You’ll lose the audience in less than five seconds. In my opinion, she was the epitome of style. I used to tease her all the time, saying that her only dance move was strutting around and jumping into splits. What I never got to tell her was that she inspired me to be a stronger and brighter star then I ever thought I could be. I believe that if Sahara could send me a message from the heavens, she would say, “Child, stop crying and go on about your business.” Sahara was my dear friend, hardcore mentor and fabulous inspiration. She was part of my family. She touched the world and, through her dynamic performances and unwavering mentorship, paved the way for a new reality of drag. Don’t ever forget:

GO OFF, GO HARD, GO GET YOU SOME. DON’T STAND THERE LIKE YOU DON’T WANT NONE!
