I’m terribly sorry to have to tell you this. Sort of.

I was skipping gaily down good old Broadway, enjoying this fresh and sprightly All Gays Eve (and not thinking of slogging at all!) when suddenly! From out of the fucking nowhere almost! Pasted over the legitimate posts on the post board on the side of the empty old QFC! My relatively horrified eye was assaulted with the…um…something… sight of THIS:


The text, for those nearsighted bastards out there (damn you all!):

Drunken Old Hag Productions Presents MOM-ZILLA! The Drag Queen that Tried to Eat Seattle, One Big Lie at a Time! In Foul-O-Rama!

Lies! Lies! Lies!

I was in the Warhol Diaries!

I performed on Broadway!

I co-founded Gay Bingo!

I do have AIDS!

I donít have AIDS!

I partied with George Clooney!

I am not a crook!

Lies, lies, lies? Indeed? WHAT DOES IT ALL MEAN?

Well. This mean little thing was crafted by persons mysterious and unknown—but y’all will, for the record, probably recognize that top banner thingy in the second picture that features a line-up of gay serial killers, Michael Jackson, and “Mom” from last year’s Pride, as it was posted (again, by persons mysterious and unknown) somewhere in the vicinity of the Bus Stop and caused much controversy and fuss. Of course, this all seems to hearken back somewhat to an earlier argument, which I still have absolutely no comment upon. Ahem.

But still, I canít help wondering. Are there t-shirts?

(Thanks to Matty Pants for the pictures!)

The six posters reproduced as a sticker originated in June of 2005, when I printed and hung them.

And Anne Heche is the original sixth, not MJ.

Yikes, time to retire to Boca Raton and finish out the golden years playing Willy Lowman in Death of a Salesman.

whatever, i've known mom ever since I moved to Seattle. Mark Finley is nothing but a good person, no one in this town has made more of an effort to always make sure the people around them are comfortable and welcomed. It's easy to insult someone who puts themselves out in the public. He is just a drag queen making people laugh and living his life..he's not the mayor why does everyone make such a fuss about what he says or does? It's not like the city is paying him to giv ethe gay opinion, he just entertains people at events, so screw off. If you hate him, you don't really know him that well.

mom finley is old least he has some talent at hosting...the irritating queen of the moment is the oh so boring aleksa manilla...does she have to 'host' every fucking event in town? if i have to hear that braying voice one more time...and hey, lgbt groups, there are several very talented people in this town who are brilliant performance ARTISTS...dina martina, nick garrison, troy mink, sylvia o'stayformore...hire them once in awhile and give your event some panache..

To Hunter- You probably met mom when you were a young barely 20 something... It is an observed fact that finley is alway gushy and xtra nice to young naiive queers #1. to get in their pants #2. because its easier to manipulate them and pull the wool over their eyes. I used to be like you. Then I scratched the surface of finleys facade and the illusion came tumbling down.
