Birthday Suit

The Sisters were out to help celebrate the birthdays of 3 community leaders, Chief Byron Longclaws (a different Byron, who knew there were so many of them? :)), James Roger Hurston and Regent Emperor XLV Andrew Von Bearstien Myte.  There were some amazing lip syncing and live singing performances, including our own Reverend Mother Diversity.  

A very big thank you goes to The Junction Pub for their continued community support!

Happy Birthday to the Birthday Boys!!!  Mwah!

Rhinestone Phoenix Rising

Sister Fancy Pants and Paladin 'lil Randy

What a wonderful show put on by the Rhinestone Phoenix Charity Foundation!

Amazing performers, including our own Paladin 'lil Randy (lip syncing, en francais) and Reverend Mother Diversity (singing live, acapella)!  What talents lies beneath them wimples.  It was a jam-packed show and audience.  

The Rhinestone Phoenix Charity Foundation has been proudly representing the LGBTQ community since 1980 through it's many fundraising endeavours and work with other organizations of the community.  Mr., Ms. & Miss. Gay Vancouver work hard volunteering their time, money and talent each year, representing our community by raising funds and awareness of local causes and issues.

It may be cold outside the Rhinestone Phoenix was rising out of the cold and creating their own fire!

Random Act of Kindness


Hi all! 

I wanted to share a random act of kindness story with you.

Tora, Fancy and I were working at the door at Ruff New Year's Eve. The event was sold out and was, in fact, oversold because of a computer glitch. So, we had only 10 tickets to sell at the door, hoping that not everyone would show. Around 11pm, we were nearing capacity, so ticket sales were a definite no-no.

Stephen Rodrozen, one of the co-owners of Rodrozen Designs, which helps sponsor the Ruff parties, had just checked in and was waiting for coat check. Behind him was a young man who was from Montreal and wanted to buy a ticket. I told him that we were sold out and he looked very sad. Stephen turned around and said, "You can give him my other ticket, as my partner is not coming".  A great start to 2017 :-)

Cheers and happy new year everyone!

Tonight, we were supported by one of our Angels, Carlotta Gurl.  She let us promote this amazing raffle at her show and treated all of us Christmas Eve-goers with an awesome show of dirty humour, camp, and beautiful lip syncing and singing.  Next up is Alma Bitches' New Year's Eve show at the Odyssey.

Support an amazing cause and get a chance to win an awesome prize.
