Gay Place: Vagina
At last, a place for your… you know…
What's in a word? Your reaction to that headline is exactly why local proprietress Johna Goldenflame chose the name ABC Vagina Supply for her online business/clearinghouse. This Saturday is the fundraising launch at Cheer Up Charlie's. Yours truly, DJs Fine & Dandy with Kate & Andy, will spin suave sounds and loungey tunage early on. Come get down with us.
