Ah, fabulous February! Nothing about your perversely truncated 28 days (sometimes 29, all right!) is homosexually sane: What other month ever dared even invent two holiday celebrations more diametrically lunatic for gay psyches to absorb than Valentine’s Day and Mardi Gras — one a paean to cartoon monogamy, eternally held hallow; the other a Dionysian […]

How to do the wrong thing right At last, a brand new, glistening year is here! We all must hope, and pray to whichever mythical being comforts us most, that 2017 bodes a far cry better, for us all, than the year in our rearview mirror, because if 2016 produced anything, it was plenty of […]

2016 and dead, and it took with it some notable icons, Long live 2017! Well, it is finally over. 2016 was a hateful bitch. Not to me personally — I had a pretty good year — but I feel the world was gangbanged with no lube. 2016 reminded me of Game of Thrones, they just […]

Hello world, and Happy Holidays. I hope you are all enjoying this festive time of year. My December got off to a wonderful start. A few years ago I was put in charge of a fundraiser for Sam Houston Elementary. They have a Secret Santa program that we donate to. Imagine, a Monday night drag […]

How to do the wrong thing right Yes, that time of the year has rolled around again for all us good, queer Texans to give thanks for how very fortunate we are — LGBT citizens in this grand country of ours, in this colossally diverse, purple-ish state of ours, in this great city of Dallas […]

Cassie’s tongue-in-mouth disease Hello, friends and bitches. I hope you all are having a freakin’ fabulous day. If not, quit being a Debbie Downer and perk up, Buttercup! Life is short. Fake it till you make it. Put on a smile until you believe it. Drink an entire pot of coffee, eat a Snickers, do […]
