Gay Philadelphia Q Fest and Gayborhood Reopening

Philadelphia was founded more than 300 years ago by Englishman William Penn on principles of equality and freedom of expression. Today, the “city of brotherly love” is a welcoming place for people from around the world, and a great destination for gay and lesbian travelers.

Famous as the birthplace of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, the cradle of liberty offers much more than cobblestone streets and historical landmarks. Cultural, culinary, artistic and ethnic treasures abound in this city and its surrounding countryside.

JULY is a happening month here!

July 8-19th – Celebrating our 16th year, QFest  is the largest LGBT film fest on the East Coast – 12 days full of 100+ films plus outdoor screenings, special guests, and loads of parties and events.

Coinciding with that is   the  Grand Re-Opening of the Gayborhood
July 10 – July 24, 2010   –    Locations throughout the Gayborhood

Philadelphia’s historic Gayborhood will be celebrating its 40th anniversary with a two week long party, complete with special events and discounts throughout the neighborhood. Restaurants, bars and gay friendly hotels, this is a town full of excitement and fun!

Philadelphia …Get your history STRAIGHT and your nightlife GAY !

MADONNA Announces Special 6 City Holiday Christmas Tour!



Not  that MADONNA. 

We’re talking about THE MADONNA –
As in the VIRGIN MARY!


Over 2000 years ago in the little hillside town of Bethlehem a
miraculous birth occurred. You might think you know the real story,
but you don’t. Jesus’ mother sets the record straight with MADONNA’S CHRISTMAS CELEBRATION, a musical retelling of the birth and life of the young Jesus Christ.

This inspiring holiday show features original
music, plus so-wrong-it’s-right parodies of holiday favorites and Top 40 hits by the likes of The Black Eyed Peas, Beyonce, Lady GaGa, Katy Perry, Rihanna and the more-famous Madonna.

 “You could go to Irving Berlin’s White Christmas or the Radio City
Christmas Spectacular, but then how could you look at yourself in the mirror the next morning? Instead, try the holiday show that dares to  dress our Holy Mother in drag.”
– New York Observer.

Move over Britney Spears! The Madonna — as in the Virgin Mary (or
Lady MaMa, in some circles) — announces her first U.S. holiday tour in over 2000 years.

Kicking off in New York City on December 6th at
The Laurie Beechman Theater, MADONNA’S CHRISTMAS CELEBRATION tour will
be performed in 6 cities stretching from Maine to California. Tickets,  show times and venue information is available at 212-352-3101 or  Virgin Mary Live.



MADONNA’S CHRISTMAS CELEBRATION is conceived and delivered by drag
writer/performer Mimi Imfurst and composer/lyricist/arranger Mike
Pettry (winner of the 2007 Jonathan Larson and Fredrick Loewe Awards).

• Dec. 6 at 7:00pm – New York, NY –
Laurie Beechman Theater (407 West 42nd Street).

• Dec. 8 at 8:00pm – San Francisco, CA –
Finn’s Funhouse (814 Grove Street).
• Dec. 9 at 8:00pm – San Francisco, CA –
Finn’s Funhouse (814 Grove Street).

• Dec. 11 at 8:00pm – Ogunquit, ME –
Mainestreet (195 Main Street).
• Dec. 12 at 8:00pm – Ogunquit, ME –
Mainestreet (195 Main Street).

• Dec. 13 at 7:00pm – New York, NY –
Laurie Beechman Theater (407 West 42nd Street).

• Dec. 17 at 7:30pm – Washington, DC – EFN Lounge (1318 9th Street NW).
• Dec. 18  at 9:00pm – Washington, DC – EFN Lounge (1318 9th Street NW).

• Dec. 20 at 7:30pm – Philadelphia, PA – Q Lounge (1234 Locust Street). 

 
The show is the 4th annual installment of Mimi Imfurst’s Virgin Mary series, which offers insight into the psyche of the teen mother and the choices Mary had to make as a 13 year-old bride. 

It has been hailed by the Catholic Advocacy Coalition as “worse than the sin of abortion” and “despicable, blasphemous and abominable trash” by DailyCatholic.org  (who never saw the show).





Described by Back Stage as
“somewhere between a plump Ricki Lake and a bawdy Bette Midler,” Mimi Imfurst has quickly established herself as one of NYC’s most outrageous, controversial, and hysterical nightlife personalities.

The inaugural production of Mary, Like A Virgin earned
Mimi Imfurst a prominent spot on the –

Catholic League’s 2006 Report on Anti Catholicism and a
#2 spot on the Catholic Advocacy Coalition’s Top 10 Most Anti-Catholic People of the Year, following Dan Brown (The Da Vinci Code) in the #1 spot and beating out President George W. Bush  at #3.
