Re: Can We Build a Less Prejudiced TG Sense of Community?

Stacy Amber ·
All I can do is nod in agreement and say "so well stated." I think I know what you mean, Sweetie, about not having a focused point, but I think that there is one there somewhere. This is a difficult topic to really tie together for some reason. I obviously have a lot of mixed feelings about it. Perhaps it's a flaw of character on my part, but I still haven't much sympathy or patience for anyone who is scared to death to show their colors in this world. Maybe that's where support is sorely...

I somehow missed the advent of bathroom cam so I did not know it was in the upstairs bathroom. I was attending the marvelously produced and realized Jackie Awards I think in 98 and there was an award announced for the best bathroom cam performance. Now I had gotten up to no good once or three times in the downstairs chambers and went into full panic mode, Absolutely terrified I would see myself projected on the piece of foam core Flavine was holding on stage.

The new book is fun. It's alot like "The Witching Hour". (my fave) It has ghosts, witches and spooks as well as vampires! The main character has gay sex with himself and has panic attacks. It has New Orleans, Julien Mayfair, The Talamasca, Lestat, Mona Mayfair, an ancient Italian vampire, Rowan Mayfair, Michael Curry and did I mention that the main character has gay sex with himself?

Re: Nightclub Disasters

The Granddaddy of all horrible club fires occurred in Boston at the Coconut Grove in 1942, killing 492 people. The fire was started by someone simply lighting a match in order to screw in a lightbulb. Most of the victims died from smoke inhalation, though locked exits were a factor. If such a tragedy can be caused by a match, how could anyone even dream of pyrotechnics? I have always been opposed to them, and still am to this day. Though fire-eating can be safer and more easily contained, it...

Lets face it... for anyone who remembers the days after 9-11 here in NYC.. they sealed off ALL bridges and tunnels and we were all just 'sitting targets' here in Manhattan. I think - like EVERYTHING - in this country ... the media like to whip everyone up into a frenzy and its SO easy to get caught up in this particular issue .. while we as Manhattanites laughed off the Janet Jackson tit media madness, or the Sniper killer shooter fears of the south... this particular frenzy triggers our...

I loved that S'tan... thanks for sharing I think one of the most upsetting sight were the hours after 9/11 - First the panic that there was more to come, then the sheer chaos of the people rushing around to hospitals, posting flying looking for loved ones they truly believed had made it to hospitals. Tragic. The way Union Sq was transformed with endless candles, posters, flyers and friends and family searching for loved ones. Then there was that acrid smell and dust- I remember walking...

Re: What a wonderful night! (reviews of NOTS 17)

daddy ·
Well, I've been talking to LOTS of NOTS people and everyone seems to like The HIRO Ballroom for Stevie. Yes, the drink prices are a little higher and the bartenders were not my favorite bartenders in the world... but in general the staff, tech, dressing rooms and the shear size of the space makes it a winner. No place will be perfect but people seemed to think this was a step up for NOTS. Personally, I like it when you cram 800 people in a room that holds 200 people but that's just me.

Okay, I need to vent if I'm going to get any sleep tonight. The remains of the waning "Circut" crowd has descended upon Provincetown this week, unfortunately! Seeing as I work in a local club, I cannot avoid interacting with this glaringly repellent group of people. I feel like I am being SWALLOWED UP BY A VENUS FLY TRAP ON STEROIDS. And not in a good way. I'm working the door, just checking that everyone entering has their wristband. An honest job. Doing so I have encountered every single...

Ok, so I think I'm finally beginning to feel at home here in BCN. I have to admit when I first arrived I was in a bit of a panic. Like "What the hell were you thinking?" kind of stuff. But I've managed to find my supermarket, my morning coffee and pastry place, and the nearest kfc so I'm much better. Friday night my friend Keyan asked to play a mini set at his friend's magazine party which was a blast. The magazine is a quaterly showcase of about 30 new artists. Amanda was the covergirl for...

That was my favorite sign during the dramatic blackout which my deli, with their gasoline powered generator managed to stay open, had at the entrance and above the cash registers. However, I did manage to get some coffee next store at the White Furniture Cafe. However, in seemingly true NYC fashion, downtown west of Broadway, power was restored in the early afternoon, but for those of us across and east of Broadway, we had no power until 9:10pm last night. After my initial panic when the...
