The Gay Place

What's gayer than a coronation? We are!

When you get a missive from a monarch, bitches, you listen. This week, a full deck of queens has commanded the attention of your humble Gay Place hosts. When Her Most Royal Sovereign and Imperial Majesty Empress XIV Simone Riviera and Her Most Imperial Majesty the Legend of the Phoenix Empress Emeritus for Life Mona littleMore say, "Jump!" we say, "To which constellation, Your Highness?" So, your humble Gay Place has been invited, nay, summoned, to Coronation XV, the 15th annual celebration gala to ignite the United Court of Austin's new reign – a flaming rule over one year's worth of community benevolence through various fundraisers and gaiety (and mmmmmmm, chocolate). It's a year of new kings. New queens. A new era. Meet the new boss. As gay as the old boss. God bless the queens! We'll be there, soaking in all the sparkling regal majesty. Ahh, life's rich pageant. Quite literally. Won't you don your courtly duds and join us? See Fri.-Sun., Aug. 8-10.

The Gay Place loves you; keep those cards and letters comin’.
