Whitney Houston: Star Spangled Banner

Since it is July 4th I thought I’d share the 1991 version of our national anthem from Whitney Houston.  I hope you are having a great 4th of July if you celebrate the holiday.

Donna Summer Roller Disco in Gov’t Center Friday, June 19th

Boston, Together Boston, Donna Summer Roller DiscoI first wrote about this back in April, but I wanted to remind everyone that later this week the city of Boston in conjunction with Together Boston will host their second annual Donna Summer Roller Disco in Government Center on Friday, June 19th.  Last years party was a blast but the lines to get onto the rink were crazy long so this is one party where it pays to be early otherwise you may end up spending most of your time in line.

Date:  Friday, June 19th
Time: 6:00 pm – 10:00 pm
Where:  Boston City Hall / Gov’t Center

Here are a few photos from last year’s inaugural Donna Summer Roller Disco.BosGuy, Boston Guy

2015 Provincetown live entertainment and shows

I love ProvincetownProvincetown has amassed an amazing collection of nightly live performances for the summer of 2015.  Tried and true talents like Varla Jean Merman and Well Strung are back with new shows at the Art House on Commercial Street, while Ryan Landry and The Gold Dust Orphans are back with one of their funniest productions ever and of course Ms. Richfield 1981 is at The Crown & Anchor.

In addition to Ptown regulars, big names are coming to perform so if you have plans to visit, try to order tickets ahead of time to see a show while you are there. Tickets to most shows sell quickly since venues are tiny.

Madonna super fan brunch at Back Bay Harry’s June 14th

MadonnaSunday, June 14 Back Bay Harry’s is hosting a Madonna Super Fan Brunch. 

Two seatings are available at 11:30 AM and 1:30 PM but are expected to book quickly so if you feel the need to “Express Yourself” or are simply looking to “Get into the Groove” before you head over to Boston Pride’s Back Bay block party, which is conveniently just two blocks away then make your reservations sooner rather than later.

The Madonna Super Fan Brunch includes a three-course prix fixe accompanied by champagne, all-Madonna music and videos on large-screen TVs. The cost is $44 – call ahead (617-424-6711) to make your reservation. 

Jennifer Hudson’s “I Still Love You”

I know this video is making the rounds on all the gay blogs but I can’t think of a better video to share on a Saturday evening.  I’m sure I’ll be hearing this played quite a bit in Provincetown this summer.

Ab Soto: Cha Cha Bitch

Ab Soto is a queer artist who first came to my attention earlier this week in an article I read on HuffPost Gay and since watching this video I can’t get it out of my head.  He clearly has a flair for eye-catching fashion and has more wardrobe changes than a Taylor Swift video.  Check this out and get your cha cha on.
