All I want for Christmas

President Obama, I love Obama

Totally not joking. Don’t fail me Santa.

Hang in there

Christmas

I really love the holiday season and think of this time of year as a bright spot that comes just before a long and cold New England winter. However, not everyone shares my holiday cheer and for many the season is stressful; end of year work obligations, dysfunctional family parties, constant reminders to be cheerful and happy etc… Sometimes it can be hard to feel merry.

I hope this isn’t the case for you, and I want to let everyone know, despite the ongoing political news which I find very depressing, I’m sending out positive thoughts to all and wishes for a wonderful 2017.

Happy Holidays to All

A Drag Christmas at House of Blues Sunday, Dec 18

A Drag Queen Christmas, BostonI somehow missed this event when I was compiling my “What to Do” post for this week so I wanted to rectify that by sharing with you information about A Drag Christmas.

If you are a fan of RuPaul’s Drag Race on Logo TV you’ll want to come to the House of Blues tomorrow to see this most unconventional holiday show. Check out performances by former Drag Race contestants, Thorgy Thor, Kim Chi, Naomi Smalls and more. (Sunday, December 18 from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m.; House of Blues, Boston; $20-155; all ages)

holiday humor, sign languageMarketers should pay more attention to their choice of font. This isn’t as vulgar as you may initially think and it is my own way of spreading some demented holiday cheer. Much thanks to funny man, Scott Backman for sharing it.

Toys for Joys is next Friday, December 9th

T4J Boston, Toys for Joys Boston, Toys 4 Joys If you’ve yet to register to attend the 8th annual Toys for Joys Gift Gala, I wanted to remind you that the celebration is a week from this Friday on December 9th. This is a really wonderful event that brings together Boston’s LGBTQ community and our allies to collect gifts for underprivileged children in Boston and the Boston area. The fundraiser is devoid of speeches and rubber chicken meals and devoted instead to socializing with friends.
