The New York Observer just published a great profile of me by writer Michael Albo, but we were both rather surprised by the title: “NYers You Must Date.”

I’m declared “Most Eligible Drag Queen,” which is pretty hysterical considering my, uh, seniority in the DQ community. Also, I look like I’m about two-feet tall on the huge couch!

I do make it clear in the article that I’m perfectly content with being single, so if no men come knocking at least I’ll have an excuse!

The article also includes Most Eligible Single Mom (she leads “an active, romantic life” even with two kids), “Most Eligible Trust Fund Kid” (he’s gay and likes porcelain vases) and “Most Eligible Shrink.” Wouldn’t it be weird to see your therapist included? Oh well, I guess everyone deserves a little love…

If you’re interested in dating me, take a number and get in line!


Tomorrow is my birthday…

Older and wiser, I hope. I’m definitely more content with my life than ever before.

Same as last year, I’m going to spend the day by myself and take an introspective long walk in Central Park. It’s a chance for me to contemplate and dwell on Everything!!


Time to blow out the candles!
Happy Scorpio Season!


BTW, over the next couple of weeks I’m redesigning my website and blog. My birthday resolution is to post more often!


I’m super excited for my next presentation of my her-storical slideshow The Drag Explosion. It’s part of the exhibit “Secrets of the Great Pyramid: The Pyramid Cocktail Lounge as Cultural Laboratory” at Howl! Happening Gallery on November 4th.

The exhibit recalls the Pyramid Club when it was the “epicenter of the nascent East Village/Lower East Side artistic community,” from 1981 until the mid ’90s. I’ll be highlighting the weekly party that I used to host called “Channel 69,” which ran from 1990 to 1992.

Pix and memories galore! PLUS video of “Channel 69” by William Comstock and Karel van Aggelen. A multi-media extravaganza!




Video still of Ebony Jet, Laila, Afrodite, me and Tabboo!


The original invite. Back when I wore skimpy dresses!

WHEN: Wednesday, Nov 4th, at 7:30pm
WHERE: Howl! Happening Gallery, 6 East 1st St (btwn Second Ave and Bowery)
Free Admission!



Hoo-boy, Halloween is on a Saturday this year so it’s going to be an entire weekend of partying!

I’m hosting Bingo on both Halloween Eve and Halloween… and then it’s off into the night!

However, I’m going to try to take it easy. At my advanced age, long journeys into the night are followed by lots of recovery time. I’m too busy for that!

I might just do what I did last Halloween and hang out down the street from my apartment in Times Square! (It’s the only time of year that I actually enjoy going there.)

Perhaps we shall cross paths… Hope so!




Early Fall in NYC is always a whirlwind of cultural events…


Gallery lighting is not good for drag… So I donned my sunglasses when I popped into the lively opening of “Party Out of Bounds: Nightlife as Activism Since 1980” at La MaMa Galleria.

The exhibit includes a few copies of My Comrade magazine that I published in the 1980s and ’90s. Plus, I’m going to be presenting my slideshow The Drag Explosion on October 8th.

Longtime party promoter Susanne Bartsch always dresses to the nines, and a new exhibit at the Museum at the Fashion Institute of Technology showcases a dazzling multitude of her avant-garde outfits from the past few decades.  The opening was a riotous affair, and I can’t want to go back at gaze some more at her sartorial triumph!

Susanne looms large!



Of course I had to pull out my nun outfit (last year’s Halloween outfit) for the Pope’s visit. I’m not a fan of organized religion, but I do get a kick out of the campy pomp & circumstances. Mankind is so gullible…

Move over, Pope!


I’ve been in a bit of a funk lately.

Honestly, I think I always get kind of melancholy and introspective at this time of year.

It probably has something to do with the season change…. A new opportunity to ask myself: What the hell am I doing with my life?

I don’t think it’s necessarily a bad thing to be a bit down for a while. But sooner or later, it’s time to shake it off and move forward. I think I’m at that stage. So get ready for more of… Me!


Getting away to Cape Cod for a couple of days helped raise my spirits. A flock of Pink Flamingos always does one good!
