GRANDE DAME

Six-time Drag Queen of the Year Award-winner, this dazzling, legendary "Green Goddess" of drag has entertained us with wild stories, witty comebacks, audience banter and some pretty fine singing, since 1990. Hedda Lettuce proves why she is one of New York City's premiere drag queens and a Port of Vallarta favorite in the winters. 

I've had the privilege to meet her on several occasions at shows, and Hedda is never a dull moment. In addition to being a actor, drag queen and singer, she is a queen who actually sings live using her voice instead of lip syncing. Her shows are pure hilarity. This fabulous queen, would you believe, is also a very talented artist, whose sells her colorful portraits of old Hollywood sirens and is also a Interfaith minster?!?! Tis true. Where else can you see a talented queen, buy art and then get married??? Hedda can be seen in Fire Island in the summers at Cherry's on the Bay. And one has to love how she collects tips!!!

One of the best drag names too.

SEEN IN NEW HOPE


New Hope is located along the route of a road called 202, the  main way between Philadelphia and New York City. It was generally regarded as the halfway point, where travelers would stay overnight and be ferried across the Delaware River the next morning. New Hope was first called "Coryell's Ferry", after the owner of the ferry business. The current name came into use following a fire in 1790 that destroyed several mills in the area; their reconstruction was considered a "new hope". The fair hamlet here has never been boring. The residents have always made it interesting,from the days of George Washington crossing the Delaware River,to distant relative Aaron Burr, to the likes of a group of New York City writers, critics, actors, and wits of "The Vicious Circle" like Charles MacArthur, Dorothy Parker, and Alexander Woollcott. Oscar Hammerstein held a residence here as well has James A. Michener, Odette Myrtil, George Nakashima,Stan and Jan Berenstain of the children books and the lovely singer, Christina Perri. We pride ourselves on being all inclusive...motorcycle gangs mingling with suburban moms and drag queens, gay with straights, the butch guys sitting with member of the trans community. And there is always something interesting to see.

Need a light?
The motorcycles will line the street like 50 in a row!

Oh Dear!
Yes, a moped for sale in a shop. Right next to the witchcraft shop.
Remember.....
Other signs in stores.....
I now know why I love our town.
Come here to be classy. It's cheap!
I got Christmas gifts for all my readers...two for Anne Marie!
Except Cali-Boi. He's getting this one.
I couldn't pass up on these gems for the giving away price of $10!!!! I even wore them through town and over the bridge with a tank top and shorts!
A Joan Crawford cut out along the canal!
Then yesterday Daddy Warbucks arrived in town for a week in this....
He has renewed my faith in a gentleman with true style and taste..... not to mention the chic design of a car still lives!!!!! Get the big glasses and head scarf ready girls. He will be here for a week before heading to LA for business then back here as we will depart for Costa Rica.

LATE NIGHT

I have always been a fan of the Swedish House Mafia. They were a  Swedish house music supergroup consisting of Axwell, Steve Angello and Sebastian Ingrosso. The group officially formed in late 2008 who were the faces of mainstream progressive house music.Don't You Worry Child"one of my all time favorite summer songs, was the sixth and final single with the handsome John Martin doing the vocals. His voice is just so sexy and raspy.  
But the song also reminds me of my own father. My father was not the warmest of people and was authoritative. But I do remind when I was young, and would worry about things, he would say "Don't you worry child." Last night I had a dream and I ran into him. I finally told him I'm gay and that I am a sometimes drag queen. He hugged me and said Don't You Worry Child...just do it right. Hmmmm…
 
On that note Im stepping out for the night......

FROM THE CANDY SHOP

Category is.....Smoldering, sexy hotness!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


We’ve seen gorgeous, scrumptious, delectable, sexy and muscled hunk Davide Zongoli in the Candy Shop before, and he never fails to impress, or give me thoughts of very sexual acts!!! The aerialist and pole dancer is looking stunning in these dreamy, sexy, tempting photos, showing off his incredible physique and luring me us in with that amazing appendage once again. Yeah, he’s an acrobat, that’s how you get the kind of upper body definition this man is so famous for. Of course, every other inch of him has me intrigued too. And he is just the sweetest with his replies to my comments on Instagram. But alas....he is taken.
If you read this Davide,I have since had trapeze and a rope hanging above the bed installed.

GIN, GIN, GIN......

GIN across the board!!!!!
Thank  goodness it's almost Friday! It has been a hectic week, hence my random postings and commenting. Your see dears, this week in New Hope was the kick off of a run of charity shows, created by moi.

Myself, Miriam Webster, Pumpkin and Lavish DuJour had a show each night, separately at a different drinking establishment, and drunks guests could pick their location each night. One queen was at each location, and then we rotate locations each night. Each night is a different location for us. It is sort of along the lines of a restaurant week, but with queens. Between organizing and performing, it has been exhausting children. How these queens do this nightly and a day job is beyond me. I don't know how I used to do it!!!! So far it's been a huge success. The monies are going to another local queen , and her lover, who is battling his HIV bills and costs, falling on hard times, and losing their house to a flooding accident. We have gotten a very good reception, and the show's name alone was entertaining because many thought the Mistress would face planet from all the gin!!! I had one guy who followed me to my new location each night. Between you and I , I think we was hoping to get a piece! He said he was attracted to my scent. I told him it was a new perfume I was wearing for summer called Diving Buddy. A mixture of rose water, lavender and tuna. Really attracts the men I tell you. The most interesting place so far was the motorcycle crowd at John and Peters, a delightful little fire trap of a joint. I think it made a for a more exciting evening...who's gonna make it out of this joint if it goes up! And then there was the Bowman Hill Tavern. a much older crowd here, they mostly looked like Colleen Dewhurst,  you know, looked like they been through a few really bad Nor'easters. You known weathered. Seasoned, like my mother's cast iron skillet...but were they ever receptive. Of course Miss Moorecock was no where to be found. But I'm not to worried. About two months ago I took her to the vet and had a chip put in her, so I'm not to worried. But the show has went amazing and some of the establishments want us to do five more shows!!!!! We shall see. Last night I was already exhausted. 
Wednesday night with Lavish and a crowd goer. Don't I just looked thrilled?!?!? And it all started last week with special guest Chad Michaels who was at the Raven for an pit stop. 
Am I the only one appreciating her doing Cher from the Mama Mia movie?
So there was that. Gotta run , more later.

THIS IS SO ME

       People ask what would I say to the Idiot if I met him. This should sum it up.

GOING TOPLESS

Who likes to go topless children???? Would you believe it was only about some odd 75 years ago the men could finally go topless? The Mistress was shocked himself. Back then had I wanted to run around the lake I'd had to be covered top and bottom.

On social media and in public spaces, there's a fight afoot for the female nipple. #FreetheNipple has become a viral hashtag protesting the inherent sexualization of breasts and bans on images of areola that happen to be attached to female breast tissue. There's even a documentary about it in the works, Men's brief fight to free their own nipples also highlights the disparity in how we perceive these highly gendered bumpy flesh dots. Would you believe it's was only about  since the 40's that American men started going toplessness...before that,  it used to be illegal for men to reveal their nipples and pecs in public, which was true in certain public spaces. But aside from a brief flurry of press attention in the late 1930s, the issue quickly transitioned from hot button to ho-hum.

 The late 1910s many public swimming pools mandated men not wear suits that conformed too closely to their physique, some even requiring short skirts worn over trunks. Good God...the Mistress would have had a fit!!!!! Swimsuit fabric and style quickly evolved in 1920s, introducing tighter two pieces as well as belted and elastic waist briefs, which some men like Hollywood dreamboat Rudolph Valentino wore sans shirt or tank.


Then in the 1940s, male nipples and pec had their heyday. On the silver screen, Olympian Johnny Weissmuller wore nothing but a loincloth in 1932's Tarzan and the Apes.Two years later, Clark Gable impressively sidestepped the Hays Codes with his famous undressing monologue to Claudette Colbert in It Happened One Night. Men's undershirt sales even fell after the film's release, though it's unclear whether Gable's inspirational nipples were the cause. I would like to think it was. Hubba Hubba!

Off screen, male swimmers began intentionally flouting Coney Island's coverup rule by going barechested to the beach.

 After a series of fines, a judge overturned New York state's male shirtless bans in 1939. The incident attracted press attention, as Atlantic City and other waterfronts similarly mandated against man-nips. With that legal domino tipped, along with help from Hollywood's hunks, men's barechestedness was here to stay by the late 1940s, save one homophobic exception. Even after New York state lifted its male nipple ban, publicly shirtless men still risked arrest if they were perceived gay. In 1947, for instance, Harvey Milk was among a group of shirtless men arrested for indecent exposure in Central Park, yet the bare-chested married men in the park weren't harassed. Good thing the Mistress wasn't living back then. My summer attire is usually very lax in the summer. At a pool , lake or running I also go topless. This would have had them in fits....

And this for sure would have had them reaching for their smelling salts and powders...
And I would have replied back, in the famous words of Mae West, Those who are easily shocked, should be shocked more often.
