Total Tranarchy!

by Angeliska on October 5, 2010

Well, my darlings – I must say that I could not be more pleased with Tranarchy’s
inaugural outing! The energy all night was truly lovely, and it made me so happy
to see so many people excited about dressing up, dancing, the cool weather,
and each other. We had a big line-up of marvelously fun performances, several
of which were debuts! I was so proud to see such an amazing and diverse
community of beautiful freaks get together and make this thing happen.
We got a lovely write-up from sweet Jimmie D in The Austin Chronicle’s
Gay Place Blog that made my heart sing: Tranarchists Unite and Take Over

No matter what I do, I can’t seem to quit my thing with hot pink and silver.
I think it’s my inner seven year old that needs to express some kind of
Jem fantasy
. My inner drag queen just needs to glue a whole lotta stuff
to my face. It’s odd how right it always feels – how implausibly comfortable.

This fella makes me so happy! Isn’t his outfit stellar?

Anthony Fuller was ever so elegant blue and stunned us all with a
very moving rendition of Bronski Beat’s Smalltown Boy, which he
dedicated to all the boys that took their lives this month after being
bullied to the point of despair. Wanna do something to help?

Jimmie D and the fringe-bearded wonders of Kings + Things
dazzled us with their version of “All I Care About” from Chicago.
How I love a good fan dance!

The troupe also did an adorable version of Leslie and the Ly’s “Craft Talk”
that had everyone dancing, cackling and covered in glitter and yarn!

2 Left Feet is my new favorite dance explosion! They ejaculate feathers.

DJ Chicken Kiev + DJ Chainsaw Hamwell kept the dance-floor packed all night long!

Mizarre’s performance completely blew me away. I’ve never seen such an
effective and arresting half-man/half-woman act. It was simultaneously
arousing and very disturbing. She makes a very frightening partial man!
The song she performed to was Big Black’s “Bad Penny” – it was perfect.

Pleasure running into you at the photo gallery on sunday, synergy is in the air at all times. seems that way, doesn’t it? We need to play… makeup, dolls, costumes, wigs, earring, yoga, food, anything. I am new to Austin from Chicago and Tranarchy was the dope show for sho! I am pretty free most days, so please do give me a text, call or email anytime as I would love to be a part of the tranarchy sparkle cult!!
peace n love
