UWG’s Drag Idol II, 2011

Me Performing ET By Katy Perry

I was asked by Michael Sands to Host and Perform at the University of West Georgia‘s 2nd Annual Drag Idol On April 11th @ 7:30pm in the Campus Center Ballroom! I brought with me Heather Daniels, Lily White, and Jasmine Antoinette.  Also performing with us that night was Lady Lexus.

 

Lambda along with the ARHC (Association of Residence Hall Councils) hosted UWG’s second annual Drag Idol. They awarded crowns to the best amateur drag king and queen. There was a panel of judges (including Lily White).  The DJ of the night, DJ Mx2., Preformed between the contestant’s performances as both a professional drag king and queen.
This event was free and open to the public. The show was a charity event for Positive Response, the local HIV Testing Center, as well as Relay for Life, and the Breast Cancer Walk in Peachtree City.

Heather D had done the Event with Lady Lexus the first year and told me how much fun she had.  I got a lot of messages from student at UWG before the show saying how excited they where that I was coming so I couldn’t wait to get there.

I made a few videos of my day leading up to the event. The first is at my house after I was packed and ready to go to Heathers house to meet up with her and Jasmine.  I show a little bit of my house and drag room in this one. [youtube]Cx7HYW7fT6E[/youtube]
[youtube]MwUczD16IPo[/youtube] The next one is us leaving Heathers house…it was funny. In this one you can see Heathers House and how blond she really is. Me and Jasmine are two day fish in-betweens in the back seat going on a trip with our Gambling Aunt. On the way Heather kept showing me and Jaz dick pic she has been sent to her phone. The 1st was next to a computer mouse the next was with a banana and 3rd with wii remote and they were all HUGE. That did not make the Video.
I finished getting ready in the car before we got there. Put on my hair, dress, lips things like that. I wanted to be ready when we got there, but of course, when we arrived At UWG we went to the back. In the Video you get to see the Driver Gretchen (Keebler Elf).  I was filming so I was not much help to her with the bags. You get to see where we got ready for the show and the room where the show was. [youtube]uSpv-Ey6fpY[/youtube]
[youtube]FBtEiSUnwjk[/youtube] We got there with enough time to we walk around UWG student Building. Heather wanted to show me around. We started in the ladies room and went up stairs to see the Gym.  The place was really nice and big too.  It ends when a few girls on the way to the show wanted to take a pic. They Tweeted it to me so i posted it for you to see.
this is the pic we took with the girls at the end of the Last Video

Halloween 2010

Photo by Iba Oshun At Synergy Im a MUMMY

My Halloween started Friday night at LeBuzz with the Cast of DIVAS.  We did a production to “Not myself tonight” and I was a MUMMY . Destiny Brooks was a CRAIZZED Baby, and did “Disturbia”.  Pandora was an Alien, and did “Monster”.  All that was mixed together with Thriller at the end.  Jasmine Antoinette was Micheal Jackson. We all came out together at the end and did the Thriller dance, or something like it. It was fun.  The rest of the night is a Blurrr so it must have been a good time.   I posted some pics of us backstage before the show.  My fav is the One of Shavonna looking like Santa with me in her lap. That convict looking over her sholder is Heather, Destiny’s roommate.

[youtube]olN-2DxgOVI[/youtube] The Next day we headed to Macon, GA to work at Club Synergy with Mystique Summers who you may also know from RuPauls Drag Race Season 2. I was trying to leave Atlanta around 2PM if I do recall. We didn’t make it out of there till almost 5. The reason we needed to leave was so we would be checked in to the hotel in Macon in time to see the Auburn game. We made it just in time and Auburn won the game. I watched it with Luke and think I kind of liked it. Does that make me a Tiger?
I was asked by one of the owners, Phillip, to come work. This was my second at Synergy and I had a blast. Turns out the other club stole away the queen they had booked. Shady, But I love Macon, so it worked out for me. I have worked with Deonna Sage many times before and she is always a lot of fun. Gigi Monroe was also there and had John Eric with her. It is always nice to see them! Jordan West was the Drag King there, he was super cute. Asisa and Ravion made up the rest of the Synergy cast. Last but not least, Mystique Summers was also there and she was off the chain. She was Yelling for Food…something about a biscuit… and then almost got in a fight with someone in the front row. Goodtimes. I got a video of everyone in the dressing room and then my Phone died.

I was Pretty Drunk at this point as you can tell by me hitting my head on the wall in this Video. I just wanted to do a little recap of the night before i got out of Drag. So before I got my face off we got hungry and went to find some food. I look a little crazy in this one. We went to Mystique’s room, I just knew there would be food there. Turns out she was at Dennys or something which is why we didn’t get an answer at her door. How many times did it take for me to count out $20?
[youtube]b6QdcsaXj38[/youtube] I always want to check out a local place to eat when im out of town. We found the cutest place for brunch. Dolce Vita Cafe & Bar, it was so good. You have to eat here if your ever in the area. Can’t wait to go back. After Brunch we headed back to Atlanta to go Trick-or-Treating with Lukas.
Lukas was Mario last year and this year he was Lougi. I think we may have got it one size too small. He had a blast, when he went to Shawnna Brooks house all he wanted was something to drink. After getting some ice tea he was excited to find out all the candy in the Bowl was for him! It was a Great weekend. I hope your Halloween was as good as mine. Feel free to leave a comment and tell me all about it. See you all in Macon again soon. [youtube]HkswOdddmU0[/youtube]

Knoxville, Carousel II

Knoxville is one of my favorite bookings to go on because my Mother lives in Knoxville! Her Sister Kate, who is gay, also lives there. My sister Angela and her son Chris live close to town as well. Needless to say, when I come to work at the Carousel II I get to se a lot of family. On my most recent trip my web designer Luke Benton (@nlukeb) went with me.

I worked at the Carousel II on August 27th with Anastasia and Jamie. Of course, I can’t remember their last names which must mean I had fun that night. My Aunt Kate always comes to this show which makes it it fun for me. They do two shows, one at 11:30PM and the second at 1AM. Knoxville is a college town so there are always a lot of young men and women it this club with a lot of energy.

This year, I started working with a new non-profit called Project Live Love (@projectlivelove). When I’m traveling I try to spread their message of “LIVE LOVE” by posting Live Love stickers along my way. Luke and I were able to get some good pictures of the only two stickers I had left for this trip! This trip I put one in the dressing room and we stopped at a rest area and posted one. Please check out PLL’s website to learn of the good work they are doing and how you can get involved.

On a little side note, one of my favorite places to eat is Sonic but, because I live in the city, there is not one close to my house. Whenever I travel I am always looking for one to eat at! On the way home, we found one off highway 75 at exit 60. Check out my little video I shot at the drive-in.

AUGUSTA PRIDE 2010!

So this was my first time working in Augusta. I had been there before with my friend Kenny who is from there. That is another post all together lol. This was Augusta’s first pride so I was very excited to be a part of it . I rode in the car with my best friend Susannah.  When we were following Kenny down highway 20, I started thinking about what hair I wanted to wear that night.  At that time I realized I didn’t bring any hair with me.  OOPS, more like OH Shit we have to turn around, I HAVE NO HAIR!!!! KILLING!!!

Needless to say, I got there later then I wanted to.  I typically like to get to the city I’m working in a few hours before I have to get ready.

Shot, shot, shot!

Shot, shot, shot!

Patti O'Furniture, Eva, Me and Eve Michaels

I had a really good time at Patricks. I had been there before a really long time ago. I can’t remeber with who or for what but I know I have been there before.

The show ran smoothly. I really like the stage and the dressing room was large enough room for everyone and there things. The other girls in the show were Eva Dee Struction, Eve Michaels, and the Host Patti O’Furniture. They were a lot fun to work with. The club it self it pretty big and they had a pool table witch I like. So I kicked my friend Luke’s ass real fast before the show. The bar staff was way nice and the drinks……Tasty too!!

The next day Eve Michaels, took my Husband, me and Luke to the cutest place for brunch. The Lost Dog Cafe near the beach and it was sooooooo good! If you are ever in Charleston, it is a place you must eat at. Halfway through brunch our tour guide went blind (thats all i will say about that) so we had to cut our day short. I will get in into the city a little more next time I hope.

I hope to be back really soon. We are working on booking a date in December right now. Check my calendar for my next visit!

Be safe

4th of July at Lumberjacks

Lumberjack’s is a gay campground located in Unadilla, GA which is only few hours south of Atlanta. I had never been to Lumberjacks before but quickly realized, it is totally worth the drive. My man Jonathan and my best friend Susannah went with me to celebrate the 4th of July together! Deonna Sage and Alana Kelly were in the show with me. They also each brought their man to celebrate with. We all shared one cabin so, needless to say, it was a little bit tight. We luckily had our own bathroom and air conditioning so it was not to bad at all.

The show was fast just as I like it. After the show, we went to an after party in the woods with one of the people the lives there. It was really crazy and we had so much fun. The highlight of the night was when we went on fast golf cart ride through the woods at like 4am. There was a whole line of us going on a trail through the dark. Unfortunately Susannah lost a shoe on the ride but even though it was scary she had fun! Lumberjack’s is a clothing optional campground (which was a first for me) but it was nothing crazy or obscene. Just a down to earth good time.

I can’t wait to go back!

Night of a Thousand Gowns

some of the other entertainers from that night

I was asked to preform at Night of A thousand gowns with Sonique (@SoniqueATL) and Sahara Davenport (@SaharaDavenport) from RuPauls Drag Race.  I had never been to New York City before so I was very excited. Night of a Thousand Gowns is an anual Charity Ball and Silent Auction put on by The Imperial Court of NY to benefit Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS and God’s Love We Deliver.

The event takes place in the Broadway Ballroom of the Marriott Marquis Hotel, Times Square, New York City. We stayed in the same hotel all weekend.  The view from our room was AMAZING! It was facing Times Square from the 28th floor.  The first video on the bottom of this post is from the room when Sonique and I checked in.

The event it self was so much fun! It was such a privilege to be in the line up with the likes of Coco Peru (@themisscocoperu), DJ Sherry Vine, Jesse Volt, Kristine W (@KristineWmusic), and we even shared a dressing room Crystal Waters! I found some other video of the night so take a look below!
