(OUTview NW) INTER-view: Peaches Christ and Bob the Drag Queen present 'Legally Black' at the Egyptian April 6th!

by MK Scott

She's back! and this time the incredible Peaches Christ is bringing Bob the Drag Queen (fresh from the Hater's Roast tour that hit the Moore Theatre last Sunday) for a brand new show, 'Legally Black,' billed as a hilarious all-new live stage show parody of the hit 2001 comedy Legally Blonde that starred Reese Witherspoon as ditzy sorority girl Elle Woods who stole our hearts quicker than you can say 'bend and snap.' This time, the drag queens take over and the theme becomes 'Never judge a queen by her wig color.'

Joining them is Abbey Roads, Mahlae Balenciaga, Mackenzie Miller, Sparkle Leigh, Isabella Extynn, Fraya Love, La Gaviota, Strawberry Shartcake, Kristie Champagne, and Stacey Starstruck.

(OUTview NW) INTER-view: Coco Peru RETURNS to the NW for 2 shows and MK's got the Scoop!

by MK Scott

Can you believe it has been almost 3 years since the always FAB, Coco Peru was in Seattle for her show, "She's got Balls"? Well, she is coming back to the NW this weekend at Seattle's Unicorn on the Saturday the 14th  and Sunday the 15th at Portland's Euphoria Night Club.

Ever since becoming a YouTube sensation Coco Peru has been inundated with emails from people of all ages asking her the same question, “Coco, what is the secret to a happy life?” So, being the giver that she is, Coco wrote a new show A GENTLE REMINDER – COCO’S GUIDE TO A SOMEWHAT HAPPY LIFE where, through story and song, Coco shares with her audience a step by step guide that leaves you prepared to enter the world again ready to create your very own “somewhat” happy life. Why just a “somewhat” happy life? Well, let’s face it, you wouldn’t want to be happy all of the time because, always remember, “happy” people make such a racket.

I chatted with Coco by email:

(SLGFF 2015) FRIDAY at the Fest!

It is Day 8 of the 20th Seattle Lesbian & Gay Film Festival (SLGFF):

Nasty Baby (directed by Sebastián Silva)
7:00 pm @ AMC Pacific Place

Like a delightful child, NASTY BABY reels you in with free-spirited laughter and a calm appearance. It isn’t until the climax that you realize this aptly named film has suddenly turned on you. From Chilean director Sebastián Silva comes this dark dramedy that not only stunned audiences at this year’s Sundance Film Festival but also took home the distinguished Teddy Award for Best Feature at the 2015 Berlin International Film Festival and the Best US Dramatic Feature award at Outfest 2015.

Freddy (played by Silva himself) and Mo (“Tunde” Adebimpe), a genial gay couple in Brooklyn, have been attempting to get pregnant with their best friend Polly (Kristen Wiig) who eagerly wants to have a baby. Each member of this “modern family” approaches the world in a different manner: Freddy has a silly sensibility that leads him to create a project in which he acts like a baby, Mo provides balance in the relationship and fills their apartment with plants, and lighthearted Polly becomes earnest when it matters most. Problems arise when a troubled neighbor known only as “The Bishop” puts them all at wit’s end and events soon spiral out of control

NASTY BABY pleases with an embracing handheld style and down-to-earth performances by the whole cast, especially Wiig. It also challenges with engaging paradoxes, juxtaposing infantile behavior with adult situations that send the viewer into an awkward yet illuminating state of observation.

Centerpiece Reception at Il Fornaio Atrium Café, 600 Pine St, 9:00PM

Naz & Maalik (directed by Jay Dockendorf)
7:00 pm @ SIFF Cinema Egyptian

Naz and Maalik are gay Muslims in Brooklyn—but nobody knows they’re together, especially their devout families. The teenagers are happy traipsing around the city selling lottery cards to earn extra money until they find themselves being followed by the FBI for a simple misunderstanding. Their lives now disrupted, Naz and Maalik have to face who they are and what they want with each other and out of life. Their charismatic portrayal of young men in love won newcomers Curtis Cook Jr. and Kerwin Johnson Jr. the Best Actor Award at Outfest 2015.

What We Have (directed by Maxime Desmons)
7:00 pm @ Northwest Film Forum

Theatre and life become intertwined in writer-director-actor Maxime Desmon’s compelling film about Maurice, a Frenchman haunted by his past who seeks out the quietude of a small town. Things start off well as he lands a job tutoring 15-year-old Allan, as well as the lead role in a local production of a Molière play. The play’s stage manager turns out to be Michael, a handsome one-night stand whose further advances Maurice rebuffs. Instead, he finds himself becoming more drawn into Allan’s life as both protector and confidant. As the awareness of his actions sink in, so does their connection to his childhood.

(SLGFF 2015) TUESDAY at the Fest!

It is Day 5 of the 20th Seattle Lesbian & Gay Film Festival (SLGFF):

Winning Dad (directed by Arthur Allen)

Colby and Rusty are two handsome men in love. The only hitch: his conservative family thinks Rusty is a straight potential business partner in need of funding. Having convinced Rusty to go on a weekend camping trip in the mountains of Washington State with his homophobic father, Colby backs out at the last minute. Things go awry in the wilderness when Rusty decides to tell all, revealing a bit more than either of them can handle. Each man must redefine his idea of family in this locally led drama that gets right to the heart of matters.

Plays with: OUT THERE Hanna Brustad; 2014; UK; 4 min.
It’s rehearsal time for this young man as he gets ready to give his parents the big news.

*Contains sexual situations*

Seed Money: The Chuck Holmes Story (directed by Michael Stabile)
7:00pm @ SIFF Cinema Egyptian

Chuck Holmes, a San Francisco videographer who created Falcon Studios, single-handedly transformed the porn industry from back alley to mainstream, shaping how gay men saw themselves. He was also a founder of the Human Rights Campaign and Democratic fundraiser—but while his money was welcome, he often was not. This revealing documentary also features interviews with stars Jeff Stryker, Tom Chase, and Jim Bentley; Falcon directors Steven Scarborough, Chi Chi LaRue, and John Rutherford; and fans of the films, including John Waters and Scissor Sisters’ Jake Shears.

7:00pm CENTERPIECE: Beautiful Something (Directed by Joseph Graham)
SIFF Cinema Egyptian
Loosely based on writer-director Joseph Graham’s experiences in the ’90s, BEAUTIFUL SOMETHING weaves through the lives of four creative men during one night in the City of Brotherly Love. Brian, a poet with writer’s block and a penchant for being unlucky in love, manages to have a steamy sexual encounter with Jim, a hot young aspiring actor and dramatic muse for Drew (Colman Domingo, LEE DANIELS’ THE BUTLER, LINCOLN), a sculpted sculptor. Jim’s jealousy of Drew’s talent precipitates dangerous choices, which both inspire and infuriate Drew. Meanwhile, talent agent Bob cruises the streets in his big white limo playing both sugar daddy and knight in shining armor in a quest for his next stripling man-ingénue. They soon discover that their hollow, quick, dirty romps can’t mask their insecurities and failures.

 by MK Scott

I must confess I have been a Jackie Beat Fan since the early 90's from the Wigstock Movie and a little 90's Indie Comedy called GRIEF. I had the pleasure of seeing her perform LIVE at ReBar a few years back where I said I would love an interview and now finally the timing was great to chat up her upcoming Battle of the Bitches with the Hirlarious, Sherry Vine for ONE Night Only. I chatted with Jackie by email.

(OUTview NW) PRE-view: La Femme Magnifique Seattle drag pageant and competition in Town this weekend!

Since 1982, legendary drag entertainer and LGBTQ activist Darcelle XV of Portland, Oregon has sponsored La Femme Magnifique International, a drag pageant for The Most Beautiful and Glamorous Female Impersonators in the World. Winners have hailed from Portland, Tacoma, Denver, Los Angeles, Honolulu, Seattle, Las Vegas, Salt Lake City, and contestants have competed from as far south as Mexico City and north of Vancouver, British Columbia. What also makes this pageant special is that at the time the contestants compete, they must be drag queens and not have any gender reassignment or be on hormones.

 On Sunday, July 19th at Neighbours Nightclub, Latrina Bidet and Gaysha Starr will host the 34th Annual Seattle Pageant with 2014 Seattle La Femmes Diamond St James and Celys St James,  Darcelle XV (MK's Pal) from Portland, OR and former La Femme titleholders.

The competition categories for both the regional and international pageants are Black and White Presentation, where contestants can wear any combination of black and white, Formal Wear, Talent Presentation and Las Vegas Showgirl. Here they must balance heavy feathered and embellished headdresses while wearing skimpy, sparkly bodysuits and high heels, as if they don't have a care in the world. In between each category presentation, past La Femme Magnifique titleholders and special guests will perform.

(OUTscene NW) PRE-view: CIRQUE DREAMS HOLIDAZE Flys IN and OUT of Seattle, This Weekend Only!

Now in its 5th year of touring multiple simultaneous productions, CIRQUE DREAMS HOLIDAZE is “so full of energy it could end our dependence on oil” according to the New York Daily News and “stuffed with so much holiday cheer and audacious acts, Scrooge would exit with a big ol’ smile on his face” proclaims the Erie Times News about this “Broadway-worthy spectacle”.

Renowned director Neil Goldberg re-imagines the holiday season with sparkle and suspense one can only dream of in a HOLIDAZE. An international cast of multi-talented and brilliantly costumed artists come to life and perform astonishing feats of disbelief. Experience gingerbread men flipping mid air, toy soldiers marching on thin wires, snowmen daringly balancing, icemen powerfully sculpting, penguins spinning, puppets dancing and reindeer soaring high above a landscape of holiday wonderment. An original music score and some seasonal favorites accompany hundreds of spectacular costumes and holiday dreams in a setting of gigantic gifts, colossal candy canes and 30-foot towering soldiers. The perfect way to come in from the cold, forget the holiday stresses and rediscover the magic of the season.

(OUTscene NW) PRE-view: Margaret Cho: 2013 MOTHER Tour Hits the Seattle Moore this Sat, Nov 16th!

Emmy & Grammy-nominated comedian and actress, Margaret Cho is set to perform at The Moore Theatre in support of her new stand-up comedy show called MOTHER. MOTHER is a complicated and completely original take on sex, queer politics, drugs, guns, identity and madness, proving time and time again that boundaries uncrossed are meaningless. Nothing is sacred, least of all, this MOTHER. The cornerstone of MOTHER revolves around Cho’s long-suffering Korean mom and a staple of her shows, Young-Hie Cho.

“It’s great because I get to put a lot of emphasis on my own mother,” Cho explains. “My mother did not prepare me for the world. First – I was named the poetic Korean name “moran” which was perfect for the kids at school to call me “moron” and set me up for a good quarter century of therapy. However, I can clea fish with my bare hands. So there are pros and cons of being from an Asian immigrant family.”

Cho’s TV show now in it’s 5th season, “Drop Dead Diva,” will air brand new episodes through the fall every Sunday on Lifetime .
