So MOST of the Queen’s posts are gay in one way or another. But this one is particularly Poofy.
I don’t know whether it’s because it’s Friday, or the fact that I’m going out with the Boys tonight (oh don’t get so excited. We’re going to grab a bite to eat; catch a 6pm showing of The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel at the Chelsea and spend the rest of the night braying show tunes with the other Queens at the Monster), but I’m feeling particularly Queer today. Pop into the Monster after 11 and you can hear me butcher Stevie Wonder’s All Is Fair In Love after I’ve had a few boilermakers for courage. Actually, I have a decent voice. One of my Mid-Year Resolutions is to recognize my strengths instead of constantly referencing my shortcomings. If you want to know what I sound like, take a listen to this:

We Were Here
The AIDS epidemic has touched all of us over a certain age. It has inexorably informed how we see life and death, love and loss. For many of us in the Gay community it profoundly defined who we were and who we have become.
We Were Here, A Documentary by David Weissman explores the arc of the AIDS epidemic in San Francisco–from those first days when people began to understand that we were in the midst of a real life horror story, to how it has affected us more than 30 years later. It’s not all a downer Miss Things. It also highlights our resilience as human beings. It shows the strength and courage of those who died…AND those who lived. Love and Hope are two of the most fabulous accessories that us Homos don constantly. We Were Here reminds of the indomitable nature of us of the Queer Community. Check your local PBS station for air dates and times.
Marcus Bachmann take notes…Just sayin’
Now that it’s out in the open, maybe Barbie and Ken can move on with their lives.
Hope all you Miss Things have a FABULOUS gay weekend!
