Scientology is Gay
Politically incorrect as it may be, I have to say it. I am a full on "fag hag." BTW, I asked my gay boyfriends if it was okay for me to say it or if they had to say it (like how only African Americans can say the N word) and they seemed to think it wasn't the same thing. So uh yeah, I'm a fag hag.
That said, I failed in my hagly duties this weekend by missing all the Gay Pride festivities in We Ho. As previously reported, I am preggo and the thought of all that walking (it's 10 blocks away just from the parking part) just didn't sound appealing this year, even with all the fabulous frocks I'd get to see and new friends I'd make (as I do every year)...
Luckily, I saw like all my gays at the private Peaches show on Saturday night. If you read Steffie's post (below) you know that the P. played with Sam Maloney and the Le Tigre butch babes and that she rocked. I caught the first set, which was really all I needed since she played my fave tunes from her new disc Impeach My Bush (which I reviewed for URB magazine this month) and her two previous releases Fatherfucker and Teaches of Peaches.
Check out this pic I took (it's a cameltoe shot from the rafters which isn't exactly flattering but I don't think she cares).

So anyway, my gays in question include actor Sam Pancake, who've I've known for like a zillion years and whose now a very successful actor (he's been on everything from Will & Grace to Friends). He now has his own sitcom on Lifetime called
Lovespring International produced by none other than W&G's Eric McCormack. The looney gal who played Jan Brady in the Brady Bunch movies is in it too. Read all about the show here.
Also ran into "strong Black wo(man)" Shaundelier, who just may be the first Silver Lake celebutante/cross dresser... he was in LA Dee Da -the precursor to my Weekly Nightranger column- every week! So happy to see him with Jeppe from Junior "Move Your Feet" Senior, who looks to be fully recovered from the hit and run accident he suffered outside of the Echo a few months ago!
Bumped into Clint Catalyst, who was wearing a to-die-for feathered hat from Jared Gold (too bad the feather was so tall it blocked my view of the stage at times!) with manic panic'd singer Jeffree Star.
But it was John Roecker, the subject of a Weekly cover story I did a while back who really made an impression, especially on Peaches who used his head to support herself during part of her set. John tells me he may be working on a modern version of Jesus Christ Superstar soon (how cool would that be?), and he's got a bunch of other things in the works. Chatting this feisty fella up is always so entertaining, but it was nothing compared to the email he sent me yesterday, which will soon be hot gossip after he appears on KROQ's Kevin and Bean show tomorrow, 8:30 a.m. to talk about it.
The following is a copy of the email, and he swears it is all true:
wanted to tell you my story that happened yesterday on walking to my car
on Los Feliz Blvd. I was a total innocent lamb when I was verbally attacked
by three people. I was walking to my car in a t- shirt that I made that has
an image of Tom Cruise and the caption says Scientology is Gay! And on the
Back of the shirt is a picture of John Travolta and the caption reads Very
Gay! So as I passed a shirtless Bohdi Elfman and he started screaming at
me saying how dare you make fun of my church! I replied just because you
have tax exempt doesn't make it a real church and the McDonald's franchise
is older. Then he got really mad and said that I had no idea what I was talking
about and I said I am well aware and schooled on this cult. Then Jenna started
to pipe in and asked me What Crimes I had Committed? I said I have not committed
any crimes. She stared at me like a zombie and said the same thing. What
crimes have I committed and then said have you Raped a baby? And I looked
at her and said what? She repeated. Did you Rape a baby? I shook my head
and then she said you Raped a baby! I was totally blown away meanwhile her
husband was screaming at me and kept on saying that the reason I was saying
this was because I was a homosexual (gee how did he know) to which I said
what does that have anything to do with anything if I was gay or not? I kept
on asking him about Xenu and he was about to punch me but he hesitated because
they were with another man who when instructed the both of them to walk
away and covered his ears when I asked them about L. Ron Hubbards involvement
with Alister Crowley, Xenu and the death of Lisa McPersion. After a ten minute
scream session when Bohdi said all he does is help people and why was I against
that and Jenna kept on asking What is my crime...I shouted I know what your
crime is. You make shitty Television Shows. Which Jenna screamed back "FUCK
True Story and I have a witness!
