‘Tis the season!
Our favorite month has arrived! Thus we post one of Fearsome’s favorites to kick off the season.
Ministry – Everyday is Halloween – Acoustic – 2019
She will be missed.
I like the way you dance.
Cameo – Shake Your Pants – 1980
One of the favorite tunes of my life’s soundtrack. It’s from my days in high school and we tore up that dance floor with this one. May it help you cut your Saturday Night Dance Party rug.
We lost Olivia Newton John this week.
I have to pause and thank her for the many memories as well as being part of the soundtrack of my life. She stepped into my life with her iconic performance opposite John Travolta in Grease. I was in the throws of puberty and deeply in lust with Mr. Travolta when that movie came out. She was stunning.
Then she took my breath away with her single Physical. The video for that gave me not only a hard on, but hope that there were actually other men who liked other men besides me, possibly many of them.
She showed up many other times in my life. However when she popped into my life in Sordid Lives, she stepped up into iconic camp status.
Thank you Olivia.
I found this clip very inspiring. I appreciate The Kilted Coaches for being courageous enough to be truly open, honest, authentic and vulnerable. I hope it makes your day as much as it made mine.
As only Jinkx Monsoon could interpret this classic.
Jinkx Monsoon – Strange Magic – 2022
It’s parade day in San Diego!
We are off to breakfast shortly at Urban Mo’s as is our tradition for some 30 years. Urban Mo’s was originally Hamburger Mary’s opening in 1992. Last night we were seen at the annual Launch Party and later today we will indulge in a lighter schedule of Pride than was our want when we were much younger, but having a good Pride all the same.
Have Fun Poodles!
Taylor Swift – Calm Down – 2019
Ru Paul – Sissy That Walk – 2014
Sister Sledge – We Are Family – 1979
Scissor Sisters – Let’s Have A Kiki – 2012
He’s a legend.
As a friend of Dorothy, I can’t let this day pass us by.
Judy Garland was born 100 years ago today on June 10, 1922.
Get Happy – Judy Garland – Summer Stock – 1950
Thank you Judy for all you gave to us.
Last year’s SNL Pride tribute is still timely for 2022.
SNL – Pride Month Song – 2021
Homosexuality was considered a medical disorder well into the 1970s. The American Psychiatric Association did not remove it from their list of mental illnesses until December 15, 1973. I was young, but by 1973 I already knew I was strangely attracted to men. I knew I was attracted to them in a way I wasn’t toward women. I wanted affection, and the affection I wanted from men was something that turned me on.
Therefore at that time I would have been considered mentally ill.
This video just barely touches on things that were done to us prior to 1973. We march to remember from where we came and why we will not go back, and there are some who would want to take us back.
Being it’s Pride month and given the political nature of our times, we’ve decided to sprinkle a little LGBTQ history into our posts.
Fearsome feels it’s important to remember from where we came as to not let our rights slip through our grasp. It wasn’t easy obtaining the rights that were already guaranteed us. Many of our tribe who walked before us, not only fought for these rights but some lost their livelihoods and even their lives clearing the path we have at this moment. A path that could be taken away.
I have to say I agree with Fearsome. So we will start with this little video.
It’s pride month and what a great vid to kick it off!
In honor of our Warrior Queen we post music this Saturday night.
Lime – Unexpected Lovers – 1985
Fearsome is roaming the streets of our 1970s motherland San Fransisco tonight before he flys off to New York manaña. We thought this throwback tune to be appropriate.
Village People – San Francisco – 1977
Hey you Asshole Alito…
Today I channel our beloved Anne Marie In Philly, aka The Warrior Queen, and dedicate this song to you.
GAYLE – abcdeFU – 2021
I’m willing to bet I’m channeling RBG as well.
I’ve always wanted to post this tune as it was a favorite of mine from my youth. Dolly always brought me awe as she brought me joy. She does so more today than ever. I can’t think of any better time than this moment to post the beautiful song.
Dolly Parton – Coat Of Many Colors – Released 1968 (video date 1983)
