I didn’t know a thing about the amazingness that is Christeene until Alaska inundated me with her music while we lived together in San Antonio for 5 6 weeks. I am OBSESSED. Paul Soileau aka Christeene Vale is from Louisiana but now lives in fabulous Austin, Texas. Her “terrorist drag” and her amazing, driving, bass driven music is just a masterpiece. Cannot get enough.
Alaska and I are down here in San Antonio rehearsing for our upcoming stint in the Rocky Horror Show (as Frank and Magenta, respectively) and we went out last night to support and surprise our sister Tatianna! She was a delight, as were the other girls, but girlfriend shut it down with her version of Miley’s Wrecking Ball. Thank you Tati, thank you.
Richard Simmons this week traded his trademark Brillo weave and short-shorts for a blonde Rite Aid wig and flaming orange getup and brought a re-imagining of the notorious, long-forgotten White House crasher, Michaele Salahi. Best he’s ever looked. Can you tell them apart? (via johnnylopez)
Atlanta has long been a thriving place for burgeoning drag talent. Just ask Lady Bunny, Nicole Paige Brooks, Phoenix, Sonique, Mariah Paris Balenciaga, and um… RuPaul! This September a photo exhibit titled Legendary Children will feature some of ATL’s current starlets in their up-and-coming artful fabulousness. Showcasing the photography of Blane Bussey, Jon Dean, Blake England, Kevin O and Matthew Terrell, the exhibit opens on September 1st at Gallery 1526. Bussey’s Kickstarter page will tell you more about it.
Photographer Jon Uriarte dressed these men, and others, in the clothes of their girlfriends or wives in his sobering portrait series called “The men under the influence…” The reserved and dignified way these dudes are presenting themselves, in their natural environs, is somehow wildly comical and at the same time almost profound. I’m not sure what the desired effect was, or if there was even that sort of intent but I can’t stop admiring everything about these images. If this were a World of Wonder Production, what would the series be called? Please, post your title in the comments section below. Go nuts (hey, that works) but be nice, it’s a holiday.
