Peaches Christ Productions presents the ULTIMATE MOMMIE DEAREST: 30th Anniversary Birthday Celebration, just in time for Mother’s Day weekend, for ONE NIGHT ONLY at the historic CASTRO THEATRE! Hosted by the Mommie from Hell — PEACHES CHRIST herself — this special evening will also include the anticipated return of the legendary pre-show TRANNIE DEAREST with Heklina, Martiny, and Peaches’ real-life mother Mrs. Christ!
You think as a bitter, been there done that queen, that you couldn’t possible be shocked and amused by a herd of drag queens? Well, I double dog dare you to put that idea of yours to a test tonight and head on down to the Castro Theater tonight for the show. Be warned Peaches shows end up somewhat interactive with the audience at times, so if you don’t want to be humiliated in public sit in the back, but if you get off on such perversion I suggest get your butt there early and plant yourself in the front row.

We spent a few moments with Left Field’s Christian McCann recently to get some insight on the designers choice in choons and living.

Michael Stipe talks about moving to New York at 21 and getting his wake up call. AB
‘Holy shit. This is for real.’
Michael Stipe recalls being frightened by AIDS as a young man and compares the early days of testing to a witch hunt, according to an article in Interview magazine.
Asked what he’s afraid of, the R.E.M. vocalist replies, “I’m afraid of everything. I’m not a naturally courageous person, but AIDS really brought it home. I mean, it was right when I was 21 years old and came to New York and saw the first billboard about AIDS. It was like, ‘Holy shit. This is for real.’ It was scary. It was right at the time when I was in a band. Suddenly there were all these people who were available to me — men and women — and I was really having fun. But then there came responsibility and feeling afraid and being afraid to get tested, because you couldn’t get tested anonymously. It was so fucked up.” READ MORE
