Last night Brendan and I went to see The Vaudevillians, a cabaret show starring Jinkx Monsoon, season 5 winner of Rupaul's Drag Race, and her musical partner, Major Scales. The show is about a Vaudeville duo Kitty Witles & Dr. Dan Von Dandy who were buried in an avalanche in the 1920's while touring in Antartica and frozen alive. Now global warming has thawed them out and they're back and hotter than ever! Singing live the whole time, dancing and bantering with the audience, Jinkx shows off tons of talent and is a true star onstage, while Major Scales, who plays the drag star's "husband," is the invaluable straight man and piano player during the non-stop two-hour stage spectacle. Belting out modern tunes in a twenties style, this show will have you laughing, hooting, and clapping for more.
Even with the show being extended several times, now through October, "The Vaudevillians" has being selling out, so act fast to see "America's next drag superstar" in the flesh. Speaking of flesh, we got to meet Jinkx and Major after the show, chat, snap some photos and I left them with a couple samples of Boy Butter Lubes (my interactive business card).

Putting on an angry face

Today, Russia’s Interior Ministry, which controls the police force, confirmed that the controversial anti-gay propaganda law will be enforced at the 2014 Sochi Olympics, but insisted that no one will be targeted simply for being gay.
Under Russia’s anti-gay propaganda law, citizens and foreigners can be arrested for up to 15 days and face deportation for spreading the gay gospel among the youth.
International Olympic Committee President Jacques Rogge had demanded clarification on the law, after originally claiming that athletes and spectators visiting the country would not be affected by the discriminatory legislation.
The IOC’s statement was almost immediately contradicted by both the law’s co-sponsor and Russia’s Sports Minister, hence causing Rogge’s confusion. Well, that’s all been cleared up now with an official statement from the Interior Ministry:
The law enforcement agencies can have no qualms with people who harbor a nontraditional sexual orientation and do not commit such acts [to promote homosexuality to minors], do not conduct any kind of provocation and take part in the Olympics peacefully. [...]Any discussion on violating the rights of representatives of nontraditional sexual orientations, stopping them from taking part in the Olympic Games or discrimination of athletes and guests of the Olympics according to their sexual orientation is totally unfounded and contrived.
Speaking with Ria Novosti, Alexander Zhukov, head of Russia’s National Olympic Committee, added that ”People of nontraditional sexual orientations can take part in the competitions and all other events at the Games unhindered, without any fear for their safety whatsoever” as long as they don’t “put across” their views ”in the presence of children.”
Well, that settles it. Attendees and athletes of the Sochi Olympics can be as gay as they want to, just no where near the vicinity of a child. And of course they’re nowhere to be found. Ever.

Every time I hit the gay beach mecca of Fire Island Pines I always manage to put up some Boy Butter posters around town as a form of guerrilla marketing. This weekend a few of those posters were joined with "Totally True Testimonials" from a mystery writer named Earl. These notes are cute and humorous, for example it is praises Boy Butter as being "Super On Your Pooper," which is a hilarious tag line and I must find a way to use in my marketing in the future. This funny person must be discovered and given a Boy Butter marketing gig. So if anyone knows who wrote these testimonials please contact me, love to meet you Earl!
It's Super On Your Pooper

Boy Butter Fresca H20, the mildly cooling water based formula is chosen as the personal lubricant to be used in a 600 person safe sex study for Center for Health, Identity, Behavior, and Prevention Studies (CHIBPS) at New York University.
CHIBPS is nationally-recognized research center that studies sexual health among gay, bisexual, and other men who have sex with men. Currently we have two ongoing research studies. Project 18 focuses on sexual risk-taking, substance use, and mental health burden among young men. Six hundred participants are enrolled in the study and they are to come into the NYC research center every six months over the course of three years. In addition to completing surveys, each participant is also given a HIV test with comprehensive pre- and post-test counseling at each assessment. Our other research study, Project Gold, assesses lifetime trauma as it relates to sexual health and substance use among HIV-positive men over fifty years old. In addition, CHIBPS staff members are actively engaged in community outreach throughout the New York metropolitan area; we attend gay bars, pride events, parks, schools, and other venues in order to promote our work and the work of New York’s LGBT community.
In order to reduce the spread of HIV and other sexually transmitted infections among men who have sex with men, we provide study participants and people we meet via outreach with condoms, lube (Boy Butter Fresca H20), and educational information on safe sex. Therefore, we would be extremely grateful for a lube donation from your company.
