Welcome to Pride Thursday! Okay, I’m pretty sure there’s no such thing as, “Pride Thursday”, officially, but there damn well should be, right? Exactly. So let's just run with it.
Now! As you know there is SO SO SO much happening, one can barely swing a catty drag queen without smacking some wondrous event right in the kisser. I know, I know! You can’t be everywhere at once (poor muggle) and one simply cannot dance at every wedding. But here are my highly recommended picks for tonight. Do your best! It’s so worth it.
You are a huge and ridiculous RPDR fan, right? Yes, yes, everyone with any sense is. Well! Tonight is remarkably exciting on that score, and it begins at good old RPlace with an evening of performances with two of the most talented and memorable queens ever to have been churned from RuPaul’s glittery mill: Coco Montrese (Season 5) and Jujubee (Season 2)! You will remember Coco (from Miami, you know) from winning in Episode 7 with her hilarious RuPaul Roast and for making the Top Four, and sexy Jujubee (from Boston) for being Second Runner Up in her season and for her smoldering, sultry style. And RPlace is bringing BOTH of these luminous queens to town tonight for you, glorious you! Bless them. Also, La Saveona Hunt from Thirsty Thursday and the winner of Miss Gay Pride is performing, the Svedka boys will be there, hot-hot go-go boys too, plusDJ Flow! And at a mere $6, it's way more drag bang for your buck. RPlace, 619 E Pine St, 9:30 pm, $6, 21+.
Speaking of RPDR, tonight we’ve also got RuPaul's Drag Race Season 6's Miss Congeniality, BenDeLaCreme and adorable Josyln Fox on the menu, along with Le1F, Cakes Da Killa, Ben and Joslyn (of course), Purple Crush, Boy Funk and Rap Girl, Olivia LaGarce, DieAna Dae, Amo A Nia, Cherry Sur Bête, Mama Tits, the brilliant Cherdonna Shinatra, Cucci Binaca, and Ade. Brought to you by Nark Magazine. Neighbours, 1509 Broadway E, narkmagazine.com/pride, 8 pm–4 am, $30/$70 VIP, 21+.
This is one of my favorite events of the season, but PLEASE NOTE! There will be no RPDR queens in attendance. That I’m aware of. Not a one. But you are gonna drink, sing your face off and drink till you drop. Guaranteed. Central Cinema, 1411 21st Ave, central-cinema.com, 8 pm, $10, all ages.
Happy Pride Thursday, you big mo’s!
