    The nightmare on Lame Street – Feb 2011

    Posted on by

    I dare not step out of my house at night; what I might find there scares me to my core. I reluctantly slither out in the morning and hide in the metro until I reach my place of work. I do what I’m paid to do and when the bell rings, run back home like… Read more »

    Encounter of the third kind (Soundtrack included) – Jan 2011

    Posted on by

    (…interference noise growing louder…) In the classic US 60s TV series The Invaders, David Vincent believed “invaders” were among us—and I’m afraid he was right! They are here. They are queer. And they will abduct your friends, sequestering them away to get probed—if they’re lucky. And before you know it, those friends will be nothing… Read more »

    Kiss Me Baby One More Time – Dec 2010

    Posted on by

    Having enjoyed some quite remarkable make-out sessions lately, I got to thinking about kissing and its importance. I’m not referring to how amazingly elated it makes one feel but to how it affects others. Seeing two men kissing is still believed to be the most horrid thing anyone can ever experience, almost more disturbing than… Read more »

    A different story… – Nov 2010

    Posted on by

    Bitchy it not my middle name but it could be. Sorely unsatisfied with what is to be found en el ambiente (on the scene), I’ve dissected clubs after clubs, dying to find where my people were at. The perroflautas-hippy-arty gay scene continuously eluding me, I almost called it quits. Madrid, maybe, just isn’t the place for me.

    Don’t Judge a book… – Bonus Oct 2010

    Posted on by

    ATTENTION! ATTENTION! There’s a new club in town! It was Friday night, my house had been invaded by Germans and I had to flee. I called in reinforcements and went into hiding. Well, when I say hiding, I mean clubbing; in the hope of finding a charitable soul that would take me in for the… Read more »

    VIVA ESPAÑA! – Sept 2010

    Posted on by

    Fairy Tales is 2 so in order to honour this second anniversary I have a confession to make: I was wrong. On July 4, Madrid turned gay and the clever organizers of Pride once again planned the event a week after the entire world had already paid homage to the Stonewall uprising of June 28,… Read more »

    Cocks – Bonus June 2010

    Posted on by

    A typical Sunday night in Madrid; the air enveloping us with its warmth and the night young and full of promises, we headed down to la Latina where the gays gather to welcome a new week of festivities and grab on to one last cock before Monday brings his gloomy head. Stuck against my will… Read more »

    Song and dance acts – June 2010

    Posted on by

    Being a perroflauta does not mean you don’t have your camp moments. Wearing bright red lipstick in honour of Dr Frank N. Furter and kilts, Brad (a Glee-tastic Scotsman) and I marched toward Ya’sta for their monthly Rocky Horror Picture Show Sing-along (www.dramakuinshow.blogspot.com) only to be confronted by a builder’s crack repainting the club! Dammit… Read more »

    Perroflautas – May 2010

    Posted on by

    Sometimes, you just feel as though you’ve lost yourself somewhere along the road. I experimented with drag (bye bye Chérie Bakewell), I reinvented myself as a moderna, and I partied like it was 1999, but something deep inside felt wrong. I’m not a drag queen. I’m not a moderna. And I’m not a party animal…. Read more »

    Lady Poo – Bonus April 2010

    Posted on by

    Never truly believing Kylie to be a princess or Madonna to be my queen – I know I’m a bad fag. Shoot me! – I wasn’t thrilled when Lady Gaga first showed up on our dance-floors but willing to give her a go. At first, her songs did appeal to me. At first, I didn’t… Read more »

    I miss dancing – April 2010

    Posted on by

    Shagging my way back in (see previous columns for full details) hadn’t been enough and I was forced to obey my saviour’s will by fear of being banned from Chueca again. A fate I wouldn’t wish on my worst enemy – not even on Lady Gaga. And that’s all I’ll say about that. However my… Read more »

    Las modernas – March 2010

    Posted on by

    When the highlight of one’s week is Génération NI-NI (la Sexta’s newest reality TV show) and roscón leftovers, you know something’s up. But what else could I do? I’d been banned from Chueca, thrown a la puta calle by vengeful drags just because I had fustigated their dreadful acts in one of my columns. I… Read more »
