Drag On! – Get “real” with Robyn DeCradle!

posted Saturday, June 20, 2015

by: in Drag, Events, Featured Events, Pride, Queer, Toronto

Robyn DeCradle holds a special place in my heart, dating back to 2004 when we both competed for Miss Bailey’s – she won – and I thought somebody had let a real girl into the dressing area.  As “Drag ON!”, the Pride Toronto extravaganza that takes place from 2:00 p.m. through 11:00 p.m. on Saturday, […]

posted Wednesday, April 22, 2015

by: in Events

I’m usually somewhat loathe to venture in to the Queen West neighbourhood; hipsters, over-priced boutiques and horrible parking are among my least favourite things on earth.  After a drive of slightly less than 90 minutes, through crush hour traffic from western suburbia (land of plentiful and expansive parking lots), I entered Dark Horse Espresso Bar to […]

posted Friday, March 27, 2015

by: in Celebrity, Clubs, Events, Theatre, Toronto, Trans

This evening I attended the opening night of Tranny:  A Musical Comedy.  I immediately found the title somewhat offensive and held little hope for the show in its entirety.  Despite being a Trans* woman reviewer, I couldn’t quite comprehend how an offensively titled “musical comedy” about one Tran* woman’s  professional transitions as an entertainer was […]
