Gay Place

By Kate X Messer, August 27, 2010, Columns

MUUMUU TO YOU, TOO Hey nellies, please come to our birthday party! Gay Place blogger Andy Campbell and I (your humble, friendly neighborhood Gay Place, Kate X) each have birthdays this weekend and have picked the day right in between to celebrate. Come straddle it with us! Come to the free Muumuus & Moustaches party at Cheer Up Charlie's this Saturday, 9pm. Denton darlings Curvette will grace the fete, and we will be holding off the turn of the calendar page for as long as we can. But then Mother Nature will do her magic, and we will be that much older. We'd sure love for you to partake. Oh, thanks, presents aren't necessary (though none will be turned away, and we especially like the color blue, rainbows, dolphins, and milk chocolate with nuts – in Kate's case, in Andy's, you can lose the chocolate ....). So that's the first part of the weekend; the second part, set your GPS to the United States Art Authority for the greatest concentration of local authorities on queer art, period, bar none. Homoscope explodes in a rage of fabulously f*cked up artness and culture skew featuring some lovely, and in some cases very twisted, film, music (Hi, Katastrophe! Hi, Kevin!), art, photography (not that that's not art; just sayin'), and so much more. Seriously, come out to these two events, and you will be queered up enough to last the entire year. Promise. (See Saturday and Sunday.)
