This year’s celebration, the city’s 41st, will feature more than 200 parade contingents, 19 stages and celebrity grand marshal Chaz Bono, the author-activist child of Sonny and Cher who wrote of his recent transformation from a woman to a man in his forthcoming book, “Transition.”

Peaches Christ Celebrated Mothers on Stage @ Trannie Dearest

by Accidental Bear

On a stage usually covered in fake blood, placentas, wig parts and potty mouths, Peaches Christ has a tender moment last night at  the 30th Anniversary of Mommie Dearest w/ Trannie Dearest; Castro theater SF. Last nights event fell coincidentally on Mothers Day weekend. Joining Peaches in the pre-show performance was her very own, sprouted from her loins,  mother. Peaches Christ then celebrated the mothers of her production team and brought mothers to the stage that were present at the show. There was a semi awkward moment when one of the mothers put on her own impromptu skit which was followed by a parade through a cheering crowd.

 

 

 

 

 

Happy Mothers Day Mrs. Christ. You raised Peaches real good, like a lady!

30th Anniversary of Mommie Dearest w/ Trannie Dearest; Castro Therater SF

by Accidental Bear

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.

SF Play by Play via B.A.R.

by Accidental Bear

I have to say that I have had a break through, change of heart if you will after viewing the film We Were Here. I feel as if a majority of the gay men in the “scene” or part of our gay community in San Francisco act in ways or have attitudes ( bad attitude) that divides each other with an overall high school popularity / mean girls competition. The film showed multiple ways that our community works much better together ( gays AND lesbians) than divided. I may put aside my superiority complex and live life from here on out as a compassionate gay adult living in the best community in the world. I love the fact that this film has restarted a conversation of togetherness, one fight. One last note, I LOVE  LESBIANS

Since pop star Britney Spears feels quite at home enough in the Castro District to do her Good Morning America shoot from there, and actress Faye Dunaway feels she belongs back in the spotlight on Dancing with the Stars, we feel we can bring you along to a deep, dark, exotic place where many fear to tread: Out There’s weekend datebook. Last Friday night at the Castro Theatre, OT was among the VIP crowd at the opening-night premiere for We Were Here – The AIDS Years in San Francisco from co-directors David Weissman and Bill Weber, a benefit for Project Inform and Shanti . At the reception in the mezzanine, the filmmakers made remarks to a see-and-be-seen crowd that included political luminaries Carole Migden, Scott Wiener , Harry Britt, and special guest singer/songwriter Rufus Wainwright .From the stage of the Castro, Wainwright conjured up the spirit of Judy Garland as he sang “Over the Rainbow” with heart and soul, accompanied by Matthew Simmons (Peggy L’Eggs ) on keyboards. Shanti e.d. Kaushik Roy , PI e.d. Dana Van Gorder , Weissman and Weber made touching remarks. Then they rolled the film.

Britney and her flashing Vagina will Perform Castro Theater SF CA

by Accidental Bear

Why do I feel like this is a rumor? If not this will be a spectacle at best. Would it be inappropriate to show up with a basket of rotten vegetable to toss at Ms Spears? How long can ones COME BACK last for before before they chalk it up to, people just dont give a damn anymore?
