Old friend Tony, Gary & Nicholas!

This is cause for celebration, so I got on the bus to New York City, the center of all the festivities, and headed for Pier 45! There I found my beautiful familes and kids and homos and everybody at the NYC Pride Family Movie Night again this year!

 

It was perfection again, as the days and days of dreary, miserable rain cleared out completely at 2 pm, so we could dry off and spread out blankets on the lovely lawn just off Christopher Street to eat and play and watch the gorgeous sunset! Then the evening culminated with the fabulous and interesting Pixar motion picture, “Coco”, which made me fall in love with Halloween all over again!

Me and my girls looking good!

What a fun evening. And just as I’m launching full-steam ahead at the Pilgrim House in Ptown for my 17th summer. I’m already six weeks into my season doing “Gender Fluids” every Wednesday through Sunday until Friday, Sept. 13.

Familiar faces! Athena & Dad!

Then, as I head back home, I’ll be making a slight detour, landing at the Ti-Ahwaga Performing Arts Center in Owego, NY, about 30 minutes from my buddies in Binghamton. I’ll be doing “Gender Fluids” there too on Sunday, Sept. 15! They’re so organized, you can already get tickets for the show!

NYC Pride Guys David & Cary!

 

I hope you’ll plan to see me sometime this summer and hang out on the beautiful Cape Cod! You can get here by air and land and sea. So there’s no excuse not coming!

 

Keep in touch! All my love and one to Jesus!

Where Did 2018 Go?!?

Standard

Hello to all my darling prairie dogs!fullsizeoutput_4645.jpeg

Happy 2019! Looking back on last year, it’s hard to believe anything could be better.

I had a wonderful summer at the Pilgrim House, my new home in Provincetown. Such fun to be at a new address on the eastside in new surroundings! And Ptown is one fun event after the other. I had a great time on the Boston Harbor float again at Carnival.

fullsizeoutput_4648.jpegAnd when I got home, I had to head to Augsburg Park Library in Richfield! I read to a delightful and sweet group of children who ranged in age from 9 months to 9 years old. They were such good listeners and so interesting, I’m reminded that our young people always give me hope that we’ll all be OK if we let them take over!fullsizeoutput_4662.jpeg

Of course, I can’t ignore my other civic duty – VOTING! I don’t think I need to remind you that we’ll be gearing up for that again in the coming year! And this next time at the rodeo will be an important one!

fullsizeoutput_466a.jpegI adore all my sponsors, Orbitz, Atlantis Events and Gay Palm Springs! Such fun and love from each of them. I get to be in Palm Springs every year for their festive and warm Pride in November. This year I rode the parade on my two-wheeler from my friends at Bike Palm Springs Rental.

The conclusion of 2018 was celebrating my 20th year of doing holiday shows at the Illusion Theater in Minneapolis. Hard to believe I was just 9 years old when I started. And my KARE 11 buddy Pat Evans helped me celebrate on his TV show one snowy afternoon!fullsizeoutput_466c

So I head into the new year with thanks to all of you who so faithfully support me and look forward to seeing many of you on the highways and byways this year! Check out my datebook to see my complete schedule of theaters and music halls and cruises and resorts and, of course, Ptown!

Make your resolution to be kind and loving in 2019!

Goodbye Summer! Hello Fall!

Standard

Peggy LeeHello to all my darling prairie dogs!

What a glorious summer season for this beauty professional!

It started in May, when the lovely and historic Pilgrim House in Ptown welcomed me as my new home with my new show, “Born Again.” The response was kind and financially sound, permitting me to set the cat food aside this fall and enjoy my tuna from Bumble Bee rather than Purina.

Such wonderful news only gets better when you see I rubbed shoulders, or rather over-processed hair (see photo), with Miss Peggy Lee. She was performing with the mega-talented Liberace, who I did not get to meet. Lee seemed a bit preoccupied with Tea Dances and getting a tour of Dick’s Dock, wherever that is!

Not all my new friends were elderly, like the two Lees, I made a bunch of new pals when Camp Lightbulb attended my show (see photo). Kids.jpgThis nice group gives me hope that all will be fine if we just leave the future up to our young people!

Carnival Week celebrated a 40th anniversary this year (see photo). I was honored, along with only 39 others, as grand marshals of the parade, floating my way down Commercial Street for the 3rd year in a row with my pals from Boston Harbor Cruises (see photo).

BHC.PNGIt may surprise you, but I also carve out some “me time,” when I frequent Essentials. This compact, yet luxurious store is run by my friend Laura and is a much-needed respite after a grueling evening with the masses. The patrons of this convenient boutique are often most fashionable and interesting, such as my artist friend David (see photo), who designed and purchased from the Stop and Shop a cake with my photo!

Also I must give thanks to my wonderful sponsors, Palm Springs Gay Tourism, Orbitz and Atlantis Events, for making, not only my summer fabulous, but my whole year a financial joy!Essentials.jpg

NOW SEE WHAT’S NEXT: I’ll be in San Diego at Martini’s Above Fourth Wed & Thur, Oct. 10-11, Atlantis Events Mexican Riviera Cruise Oct 14-21, Palm Springs Cultural Center Sat, Nov 3, and Club Atlantis Vallarta Nov 4-10. Then home for the holidays at the Illusion Theater in Minneapolis Nov 30 – Dec 22.

Whew, a review of that schedule makes me realize I need to secure my girdle and rinse out my pantyhose – pronto!

Hello to all my darling prairie dogs!

Just bought my bus ticket for Provincetown, MA, where I’ll be for the entire 2018 summer season! This year you can see me in my new summer home, The Pilgrim House, which used to be Sage. It’s super easy to find across the street from Land’s End TrueValue Hardware on Commerical Street! Or next door to the Purple Feather – yum yum!

I think you’ll love my new room, with new comfortable chairs and a delicious restaurant and bar to enjoy before and after the show!

Buy Tickets Now!

I’ll be doing weekends in June. Then at the end of June I start my 5-day week schedule, performing on Wednesdays through Sundays until Labor Day. Then two more weekends in September.

A total of 65 shows this year!!!

It’s been a long, cold, crazy winter. So make plans now to head to Old Cape Cod for a bit of summer fun.

I’m Sharing the Good News!

Standard

fullsizeoutput_3a4aHello to all my darling prairie dogs!

I’m jotting a quick note, as I head to the bus depot for my next Greyhound excursion. I have to hurry, as I take my ministry on the road to Ft. Lauderdale, New York City, Washington DC, Atlanta, Tampa/St. Pete’s, and my first-ever visit to the lovely City of Rochester, NY!

Such fun places and so many new friends to meet with my new show, “Born Again.”

Many of you know that I spent the last two years rubbing shoulders with our political system. I ran for President in 2016 with “Red Lips to the White House.” Then I attempted to create a more livable world through vertical reality in “2020 Vision.”

But I’ve moved on to the spiritual realm, which I’m finding is a perfect fit for me and my beauty career. Since I’m already so pretty on the outside, and that’s what people see first, I think this spiritual approach could be fun for awhile.

I’m finding there are many opinions and ideas out there about church and so forth. And I may be on the verge of finding the true religion that could finally put all this fussing and fighting behind us!

So come see me and tell me about your spiritual journey. Mine starts on the bus!

New Year’s story time at the Ptown Public Library

Hello to all my darling prairie dogs!

I had a lovely time, closing out 2017 and looking ahead to the New Year! I was in Ptown to perform my quality holiday multi-media extravaganza at the Pilgrim House.

But before I did my show, I was invited to be part of a children’s story time at the Provincetown Public Library. And if you ever find yourself depressed and scared about the future, just spend some time with our kids and you’ll be encouraged!

I was so impressed with these little guys and gals. We had fun reading and talking and I even played  “Over the Rainbow” on my musical saw! It just seemed perfect with the diversity theme that was set up by Emily at the Family Equality Council.

We had cookies too, provided by my pals at the Pilgrim House!

So I’m not heading into 2018 shaking in my boots! I’m shaking my maracas and my tambourine, and skipping into the new year! I wish the same for all of you! And don’t forget to check my date book, as I’m heading out to New York City, Rochester, Fort Lauderdale, Atlanta, and Washington DC, along with my wonderful Atlantis cruises!
