To celebrate the holidays, Queerty is playing Santa to all your favorite folks and asking what they want under the tree/ next to the menorah/ beside the Saturnalia bonfire this year, no Ms. America answers allowed.
The much beloved and besotted drag queen cabaret duo Kiki & Herb is one of the great civilizing forces of the world. Who else could work a William Butler Yeats line into a cover of “Total Eclipse of the Heart”? As one half of the duo, Justin Bond went from downtown performance darling to Tony-nominated Broadway star. To celebrate the holidays, Bond will be performing the entire Carpenter’s album Close to You (plus some seasonal tunes) at the Abrons Art Center in New York City from Dec 11th – 13th. Tickets available here.

“For years I’ve wanted — and it isn’t small, but someone will be able to either purchase or hot-wire one for me — I want a mid-80’s ‘Chocolate-Brown Mercedes Sedan’… the one Sheila E. sang about in ‘Glamorous Life’. I don’t necessarily support the auto industry bail-out because I think they’re greedy idiots who could’ve done a lot more to protect the environment! BUT Aunt Mommy has a road trip in mind for 2009 and wants to travel in vintage comfort with plenty of room for all my high heels in the trunk, my fancy man to my right and a couple hot drivers in the back seat… preferably in mint condition, color negotiable.
