As you may have seen in Huffington Post , the Queens made history (well HERstory) by coming to Durham, NC and facing the challenges of the discriminatory HB2 law.
They came, they slayed, they conquered… and performed an amazing show!

RUPAUL’S DRAG RACE” FAN FAVORITES are on the road FOR LARGEST “BATTLE OF THE SEASONS” TOUR YET, TRAVELING TO 57 GLOBAL MARKETS which included A STOP AT DPAC MAY 22, 2016 .

Producer Entertainment Group and Sidecar Management, in conjunction with World of Wonder and Logo TV, announced the return of the world’s biggest touring drag revue, based on international mega­hit TV franchise “RuPaul’s Drag Race” (RPDR). Seeing this extravaganza up close was an opportunity I could not miss! I especially liked seeing the unscripted, unexpected SNATCH GAME live!

The “Battle of the Seasons” tour, now in its third consecutive year of growth, was hosted by series judge Michelle Visage and included an all­star cast of past winners, runners up and fan favorites from each season of RPDR, including: *Adore Delano, *Alaska, BenDeLaCreme, *Courtney Act, *Ginger Minj, Ivy Winters, Jinkx Monsoon, Katya, Manila Luzon, *Miss Fame, Pandora Boxx, *Phi Phi O’hara, Sharon Needles, *Violet Chachki and Willam to name a few. (Lineup varies by city and is subject to change. Check local listings for expected performers. *These were the performers at DPAC) In addition, select cities will feature an opening DJ set by Pearl.

“Last year the world got merely a taste of RuPaul’s queens with the first global Battle of the Seasons Tour,” said Michelle Visage, host of the “Battle of the Seasons” tour and permanent judge on RuPaul’s Drag Race. “This year we are back, and these ladies are bigger and badder than before! Get ready for the ULTIMATE RuPaul’s Drag Race experience from the minute you walk through the doors. It is a once ­in­ a ­lifetime extravaganza that you will NOT want to miss!”

The “Extravaganza” tour began with a 14­ city Europe cycle launching from Antwerp, Belgium on March 17, 2016. The second leg of the tour kicked off in Seattle, Washington on April 19, 2016 and is crossing the United States and Canada with 43 stops.
We got to witness the eleganza and gag on the shade of it all in a night of unforgettable music and madness with the world’s most talented drag performers!

SAVE Dade 20th Annual Halloween Ball: Once Upon a Midnight Scary happened on Saturday, October 25, 2014, 10:00pm – 3:00am. This year’s event was held at Downtown Miami’s spectacular Historic Alfred I. Dupont Building, truly one of South Florida’s premiere event spaces.

Sponsor Bacardi supplied their repertoire of brands including Grey Goose and Bombay Sapphire at double the bars of last year’s event. On top of it all, this year’s VIP section was set up inside the building’s spooky vacant bank vault complete with OPEN BAR, and for everyone else there will be undead “bank tellers” serving up your favorite drinks! AND, TRACY YOUNG was back by popular demand this year spinning your favorite dance and electronic tunes with the assist from retro-flavored DJ Bill James along with three DJs new to the Halloween Ball: Alex Ramos, Carlos Rojas, and Maximus 3000!

In 2014 we’ve given it all for equality, and that goes for the Halloween Ball, too. Revamped and reloaded — here is my photo recap of this Spooktacular Event!

#SobeSavvy #PrideParade Photo Recap: @MiamiBeachPride #MiamiBeachGayPride

IMAGE1

Beauty, strength, unity, talent, and creativity! That’s what we all saw at the Miami Beach Gay Pride Parade on April 13, 2014.
I kicked off my Sunday Funday with an Extraordinary Day OUT at the big, bold, colorful parade ! Starting at 12pm, the length of Ocean Drive along the Art Deco district was closed to traffic and opened wide to many proud South Florida lesbian, gay, bi, and transgender families, friends, co-workers and allies– along with Pride sponsor organizations, groups and businesses.
Every year Pride proves to be a celebration that brings out the best in us all! Here is a a video clip I took of the parade:

Enjoy my photo recap of this fun-filled Prideful day !
