Memoirs of a Gay-sha

Ok so there's nothing Asian about this post. But it is a stroll down memory lane and I wanted to steer clear of any "Dude Looks Like a Lady" references.
I wasn't in the studio yesterday so I have no new work to post today.
Since I've got RuPaul's upcoming Drag Race tv show on the brain, I've decided to hit y'all with a lil' drag flashback! My stage name was Miss Demeanor.

Performing Melba Moore's rendition of "Aquarius".
I stayed up all night gluing those damn daisies (and sequins to the daisies).

For about 10 years of my life I was a part-time Female Impersonator. I competed in various pageants (and won some!), acted in a film ("Trust Dance"/unreleased) and had great fun doing gigs at various night clubs throughout the TriState area.

Winning Miss Gay Bucks Co. USofA

Promo head (and leg) shot.

Performing a half Spanish/half English version of Peggy Lee's "Fever".

Winning Miss Colosseum. (I was their first!)

Struttin' around the stage. I loved that gown!

Modeling a Dior at Miss Gay PA USofA. Got the gown on a DEEP discount on account that an opera singer had ordered it and never picked it up. A halter strap had to be added, as I was (am) not "naturally" able to keep it from sliding down my chest.

Miss D. was last spotted at a Halloween party circa '03-'04.

(hope you got a good giggle, Judy! ;-))

Well... Miss Demeanor, you are one HOT Lady. You got it all together, down to the littlest details. No wonder you won pageants. The Dior gown is gorgeous on you and you are gorgeous in it.

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays and best wishes for the New Year to you John.
