EASTR PARADE 2013…….Drag and Trans

The Easter Parade is never a “drag” when the drag queens get gussied up….and they add a lot of color to the parade.

P1000516

Oswaldo Gomez dresses like Nicki Minaj [or, the other way around].  He is a cherished New Yorker……and a very sweet man.  He dresses like this every day……….but he especially loves parades. Usually travels with his little poodle Carino and  a parrot.

P1130033

BIG lady……little hat…….with a big personality.

P1130578

Sequins and features and fab tits.

P1170179

Foursome……..and they always……….!!!

P1170183

Now, that’s a hat!  SASSY!

P1170267

Over the top?  Maybe just a touch.  But he does carry a classic bag!

 

P1310269

Even Priscilla Queen of the Desert isn’t ready for this one.  It takes courage to wear this many pink rollers.

 

P1350318

What is that confection?  28 slices of chocolate cake.  Call him “Miss Yum Yum”.

 

P1570824

Hey Faggot” is only an insult if it’s said by the wrong person the wrong way.  After all, the pro-ballers call each other FAGGOT...and slap each other on the butt!

 

P1570826

Slutty?  NO.  Wicked?  Maybe.  Dazzling….Yes!

 

P1570830

Exuberant?  Sizzling?  Over- the- top?  Only if you’re caught dressed like this in the Midwest.

 

P1570831

Bad wig!  If you have a spare you know where to send it.

 

P1570845

DRAG QUEEN:  a man who dresses like a woman.  They are NOT all gay. It’s a professions for a lot of men.  We love them all.  You go girl!

 

 

 

BROADWAY Sings in Bryant Park

Thousands of New Yorkers…..and a few thousand tourists ate their lunch today in Bryant Park.  Weather was FAB.  The entertainment was FAB…….it was BROADWAY DAY !

GETTING A TAN…..and waiting for the show to start.

The stars of PRISCILLA Queen of the Desert were there.

Tony Sheldon……..Will Swenson and Nick Adams made an appearance and they were sensational.

Nick Adams………without his costume.

Kick up those heels, girl!

The crowd……waiting for the next show.

The cast from MAMA MIA……….waiting “in the wings”.

MEMPHIS didn’t show!  Bummer !

Tom meets Priscilla……….which one is the real Priscilla?

He’s not in the show……….but he definately was “The Show”.

She had to eat her lunch standing up.  I refused to give up my chair.  Besides, I’m older than she is.

Too busy reading to watch the show.

“Oh dear………..I missed the show”.

Time out for a beer and a burger.

Others chose to eat in the SOUTHWEST PORCH…….they serve a wicked Soft Shelled Crab Sandwich.

There weren’t many chess players today………….they were all watching the show.

Movies show on the BIG SCREEN in the evenings at sundown.

We walked back via TIMES SQUARE………where the tourists are “the entertainment”.   New York City……….ya gotta love it !

The New York Times critic hates the show…………..but we LOVE it.  It is bawdy, boisterous, outrageous………

Over the top!  Way over !

These three divas………are real ladies……..not drag queens.

We met Marion and Marsha………..

The curtain promises a spectacle…………and they deliver.

Three drag queens on a road trip to put on a show at a casino in the Australian outback.  “Tick’s” wife runs the casino……and her little boy wants to see his dad.

This tired old bus is their home in the desert.

“Tick”  [Will Swenson]  sings “I Say a Little Prayer”…….while thinking about his son Benji [whom he has never seen]…………while putting on his drag make-up.It was a very tender moment.

Bernadette [Tony Sheldon]……gives his role some modest dignity…….but remains a campy drag queen.  She is fabulous.

“Felicia” [Nick Adams]……….with the body of a God………..flexes those biceps, exhibitionism to the fullest.  And, the audience goes wild.

Tick, Bernadette and Felicia……..in outrageous costumes    [thank you Tim Chappel and Lizzy Gardner for your sensational designs].

The bus…………transforms into a dizzying light show………non-stop……….and the chorus boys  [all gorgeous] ………are dynamite.

“Shake Your Groove Thing”….and shake it they do.

The scenic designer……….Brian Thompson……….deserves every award that he will surely get.

Felicia lets loose with “I shall Survive”……..and we hope he does.  His energy output is a million watts…………and the audience lights up every time he opens that mouth.

Of Felicia!  If the shoe fits……….

Bill Swenson………”Tick”   drags the audience to their feet with this number.

The “Three Divas” work it………..and over work it………..sensationally.

During intermission you can pick-up an ornament for your tree.

A poster for your room……….

The finale brought the audience to their feet……singing and dancing and swaying to the beat.  Me too.  The little boy is Luke Mannikus.  So sweet.

Will, Tony and Nick taking their well deserved bows.
