“Pride In The Park” up in FoCo this weekend!

Most of the events listed on this blog are in Denver but I wanted to let y’all know our friends up in Fort Collins are celebrating pride this weekend with Pride In The Park.  The festival is Saturday afternoon (June 6th) from 11:00am-5:00pm in Civic Center Park, Fort Collins.

Following the festival is the after-party at the Sunset Events Center where the Demented Divas will be performing.  The after party is from 6:00pm-1:00am and the Divas go on stage at 7:00.  Tickets for the after-party are $25 and include a drink.  If you just want to go for the dance portion after the show it’s only $10 (which also includes a drink).

Ya I realize that was alot of info so check out their website if you get confused.

Holy crap – Denver Post does feature story on Nina Flowers

Photo from the Denver Post

The Denver Post had a phenomenal feature story on Nina and the rest of the VIVID show this Sunday.  What immediately caught my attention was that the Post writer was smart enough to realize drag is more than “female impersonation” but rather a unique and undefinable form of gender expression and exploration.

The story obviously features Nina Flowers but other performers mentioned include Nina Montaldo, Nicole Sommer, Ginger Sexton, Felony Misdemeano, Blade Matthews, Jenae Bordeaux, Gia Diamonte and Michael Vrooman who started the VIVID drag show.

Read the full Denver Post story here.

Update: OutFront is reporting Mayor John Hickenlooper declared May 29th “Nina Flowers Day.”

The Weekend Of May 29-31

cool-shit-this-weekend1

  • Friday night Tammie Brown (the scary looking one from RuPaul’s Drag Race) is joining Nina Flowers for “Drama Drag,” Tracks’ weekly drag show.  Cover is $10 and show starts at 10 PM in drag time which means 10:15-10:20 in reality.  Flyer here.
  • All weekend long the Starz/Tivoli film center is having a queer film festival.  Tickets have been on sale for the last month (and this is my third post on the matter) so I can’t promise you’ll get seats in the screening you want but check out the full schedule here.

Remind me again how I ended up at Mary’s on Cinco De Mayo

Sure the roll-up doors at Mary’s are nice to open on warm evenings but they’re also useful — they allow drag queens on stage hosting bingo to lean out and heckle passerbys on 17th to come in and play.
