Whatever did happen to Bobbie Gentry, that’s the question that Rosanne Cash, daughter of legendary Johnny Cash, asks?

FABULOUS NOBODIES- SISSYDUDE talks to JOHN SIMONE about his AWESOME NYC Party Photos! (via Daily Xtra)

_itTwins-at-Copacabana_1988

_johnSex-and-Friends-at-Hairspray-Premiere-Party_1988

Sissydude: Photographer John Simone has two photo retrospectives happening during Toronto’s World Pride. The shows feature New York club culture icons from 1987- 1990. They include Rupaul, Kenny Kenny, Leigh Bowery, John Sex, Quentin Crisp, James St. James, Divine, The It Twins and of course “Party Monster” Michael Alig. Even Cher, Michael Jackson, Madonna and Sandra Bernhard pop up!

_leighBowery-at-Copacabana-Club-with-KennyKenny-and-charlesAtlas-in-background_1988

Simone left Toronto for New York in 1986 and immediately started working for Club-18 (The Roxy), Details Magazine (including Details’ influential nightlife column by Stephen Saban), Vanity Fair and The Village Voice. Of course the magic really started happening for him when friend Michael Alig appointed Simone chief photographer for his Project X Magazine.

I recently went to visit the very excitable and engaging Simone (above, pictured on the right, with Michael Musto) in his studio apartment in Toronto to get a glimpse of his gorgeous photos and talk, talk, talk about his subjects and his very interesting life during that time. Of course the magnificent creatures in the photos are what really gets him going…

DAVID HAWE’S BIG LOCKS (via Daily Xtra)

1655859_570237659727145_978469367_n

Big Locks is the name of David Hawe’s new series of photos, currently hung at Wayla Bar. The show consists of six gigantic head-and-shoulder shots of men in big, beautiful wigs (made by wig-master Mikah Styles). The photos don’t have the jazzy, bold colour play Hawe frequently uses in his professional work (Now, Xtra, Fab); this time he’s going all black and white on your ass . . . and it’s stunning.

10189_570237829727128_1050309784_n

“This is my first of many solo and group art exhibits I’ll be doing this year,” Hawe says. “I love wigs! My mother wore a wig every day of her life . . . so there were always lots around while I was growing up.”

The images evoke the old movie-star glamour photos of George Hurrell or even those awesome 1960s yearbook photos of bouffant teen girls that have inspired so many queer artists, from John Waters to, well . . . Every. Drag. Queen. In. The. Universe.

1613840_10152226849433428_1242017466_n

“It doesn’t matter how butch a man tries to act; there’s something magical that happens once he gets a big ‘do’ put on his head . . . and the bigger the better,” Hawe says. “The eyes sparkle, a hip falls down . . . and his world gets sassy. These photos are just about that.” —Sissydude

Big Locks opens Thursday Feb 6th and runs until Mon, March 3rd @ Wayla Bar, 996 Queen St E.

THE QUEEN (full version of the 1968 CLASSIC) @ MyLifeasPhil… via MAMA!!

tumblr_lkfmn3GLgT1qfnhuco1_1280

The Queen was filmed in NYC in 1967 and released in theaters in 1968. In 1967 it was illegal for men to dress as women. The documentary follows a 1967 Drag pageant judged by Andy Warhol among others. It stars Jack Doroshow aka Flawless Mother Sabrina, Richard Finochio aka Rachel Harlow and Crystal LaBeija. Crystal went on to start The House of LaBeija pageants which was the premise of the 90′s documentary “Paris is Burning.” In 1972 Richard Finochio underwent sex reassignment surgery to become Rachel Harlow, she began dating John B. Kelly, Grace Kelly’s brother. The relationship ended when John’s mother said she would disinherit him if he married Rachel. Rachel opened the Philadelphia night club “Harlow’s” in the 1970′s. The only person to surface since this classic film was made is Jack Doroshow when he was interviewed by James St. James on youtube. International Chrysis (1951-1990) can be seen as a teenage boy rehearsing dance numbers. These are the Queens who opened the doors for RuPaul and RuPaul’s Drag Race of today. via MyLifeasPhil
