Yeah girl, it’s shocking!
RuPauls’ Drag Race will soon be airing its all-star edition as it’s 5th season. Oooh girl it is going to be good! Just check out the cast!
The full Drag Race All Stars cast includes Pandora Boxx, Chad Michaels, Yara Sofia, Jujubee, Nina Flowers, Mimi Imfurst, Manila Luzon, Shannel, Alexis Matteo, Tammie Brown, Raven, and Latrice Royale! But alas, no Sharon Needles. Sigh.
I’m not sure when the season will air yet, but I’m sure it will be FEIRCE! Just look at all these Divas! (With a capital ‘D’!)
I’m really happy that one of my favorites, Latrice Royale will get her shot at the crown!

Keywords: best of long island, best not-for-profit, licc, long island crisis center, pride for youth
Hey all you busy bloggers and blog readers! Today I’m going to ask you for a little help, since you all are so cool as to take a few minutes to spend with me each day – for which I am extremely thankful.
Today I am going to ask you to mobilize, advocate and help out an amazing agency on Long Island that runs programs supporting LGBTQ youth and more.
The Long Island Crisis Center (LICC), now in its 41st year of serving the community, is the premiere 24 hours-a-day/7 days-a-week/365 days-a-year suicide prevention and crisis intervention hotline agency. It provides free, confidential and anonymous counseling, referrals and support to all Long Islanders at critical times in their lives. Under the LICC umbrella, four initiatives provide support and life-changing services: Pride for Youth (LGBTQ youth); MPowerment Long Island (GBTQ young men); Street Outreach Project (runaway/homeless youth); and the Community Education Workshops Program (students and faculty on-site in school districts). In 2011, LICC was a life-saver to more than 32,000 Long Islanders. Click to nominate the Long Island Crisis Center for best non-for-profit on Long Island. Simply click on the link below!
Spread the word about this – maybe if nothing else, you can nominate us and then ‘share’ this post by clicking the little Facebook icon at the bottom of the page. Please? I don’t ask for much!
Check out Pride for Youth at www.prideforyouth.org , Mpowerment Long Island – an amazing program for young gay men ages 17-24. I’ve seen the program and it really is a dope place to meet other young guys, other than just hanging at the club. Plus the people who run these programs are really down-to-earth cool guys.
Please nominate them today! If they get enough nominations, they’ll advance to the voting round. This will help them help thousands of more LGBTQ individuals just like you. Thanks!

GRIMM is for children of all ages – you ‘adult’ children will love it! GRIMM tells the tale of twin sisters and rivals vying for a crown in a funky fairy tale. GRIMM features familiar characters created by the Brothers Grimm, from Hansel and Gretel to the wily Rumpelstiltskin, entwined with a new cast of ghostly characters who spin chilling new twists on fairy-tale classics. And who here doesn’t love fairies and girl fights?!
GRIMM has been hailed by Broadway producer Ken Davenport as one of the top 10 shows to see! It’s going up at the HERE theatre, 145 6th avenue, New York, NY (near Spring St and Varick). But go online and get your tickets today – the space is hauntingly intimate and tickets are limited! Grab your kids or the kid in you and head to GRIMM this weekend through August 22nd!

You can also check out this insightful and witty interview with GRIMM’s creator Kenneth Kruper from nytheatre.com. You’ll learn about the show, the process and all the surprises to come, like this exciting gem!…
Q: In your own words, what do you think this show is about? What will audiences take away with them after seeing it?
A: GRIMM is about all the different aspects of what it means to be a child: the good and the bad. It’s about our childhood love of the supernatural, whether it’s Harry Potter, E.T. or Superman. It’s about the lack of control that we all felt as children and that seemingly unquenchable desire to take charge of our destinies. It’s about a child’s deepest and darkest fears of all things that go bump in the night. But ultimately, like all good fairy tales, it captures a child’s intrinsic sense of right & wrong, good & evil, fair and unfair; the “black and white”-ness of it all that somehow gets skewed and turns to gray with age. My biggest hope for our show is that the children who see it will understand and relate to it and the adults will get to be kids again for a short period of time.
Kenny’s music is amazing, the show is enchanting and the cast is incredible! Whats not to love? Get your tickets today!
My moment with…or as, rather, Beth & Paige.
Keywords: beth paige, bethpage federal credit union, lesbian dreams do come true, john w engeman theatre
Few people in this world know about my strange and passionate crush for two very special Long Island women – Beth & Paige. And by few people, I really mean my girlfriend and the random person I blurted it out to while waiting at the bank. So when I was working at the awesome John W. Engeman theatre in Northport I was more than excited to see their cardboard cutout of my ladies! I was able to pose with my girlfriend as my two lifelong…uh, well, year long (that’s when I started banking there) obsession with my banking beauties.
I love you ladies too! Oh wait… that’s the “Bethpage” B. Now this is not an endorsement of Bethpage Federal Credit Union but more so a tribute to these two awesome gals. Now my mission is to find out more about them and locate their actual personas. (or their fake ones too.) Do they have a Facebook? Are they real? Stock photos? wePRIDEny.com will find out! Any tips are greatly appreciated! Heheh.
And sometimes it’s the stupid things!

I know it’s silly and ‘immature’, but my girlfriend and I saw this on a billboard on our way down to the West Village yesterday and it made me hysterical! So i’m sharing it with you in the hopes that it will give you a good giggle on your Wednesday morning.
On the same billboard someone also took the kind liberty to make one of the actors in the poster sort of Gender Queer, and I think it’s awesome. Blue really brings out the queer in his eyes. ;)
My idea of an ‘alpha’ male is definitely one who can rock blue eyeliner. Damn I love the LGBTQ (and AI) community!
I love GAYmers!

I love video games, GAYmers and gay people so I loved this picture! (It’s a pretty great play on that nasty video, I have to say.) I myself am a Play Station 2 gal (I just can’t let go of some of my old games!) and I still love to play Super Mario Brothers and Mega Man on my old school Nintendo! My friend Wanda had the pic up – she is an awesome GAYmer! (In case you didn’t know GAYmer is an official slag word and/or term used when describing yourself, likes, etc. It’s a good way to say you’re not just into hooking up on Grindr!) Check out this awesome tattoo Wanda got!
Shot out to all my gaymers out there - email me and let me know what you’re playing or send me your cool gaYme tattoos and pics!
