Pride Month is in full swing and with it some FABULOUS events are taking place. While all of you are still processing the announcement of my new drag persona Anna a Hole Smith, I guess it’s important to note that I’m by no means booking gigs any time soon. I would much rather let the professionals entertain us all while Julio & I work towards our drag fantasy.
