Crowning Achievement

San Francisco’s 49th annual Imperial Coronation, themed A Killer View: An Evening of International Mystery, Bond Style, was one for the record books: two qualified candidates for Emperor and two for Empress, the best attendance in a decade, gorgeous sets, extraordinary floral décor, dazzling entertainment, show-stopping emotional moments, and nearly $60,000 given away to other charitable organizations that night!

Honey, Honey

It seems as though Honey Mahogany is everywhere these days. The season 5 ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’ contestant has released an album, and recently played herself on the fourth episode of HBO’s gay series ‘Looking.’ She’ll soon be appearing at the hot Market Street nightspot Martuni’s.


If you love ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’ and miss the glory days when Michelle Visage co-hosted RuPaul’s much missed chat show on VH1, then the Regency Ballroom is where you want to be come Sunday, February 9. Visage will co-host and judge ‘Battle of the Seasons,’ a thrilling night of madness and drag mayhem.

Moni Talks

At times sincere and at other times witty and casual, San Francisco drag diva Moni Stat balances the elegance of upscale drag with a sense of humor and self-deprecation. “First and foremost, I am a stupid clown. At the end of the day, the makeup and jewelry come off.”

Pub Grub

Queers know where to dine. So it shouldn’t come as a surprise that the “gay mecca” is also a foodie paradise that offers a cornucopia of options to diverse palettes no matter what mood or time of day.

BARchive: Sweet Dreams

Sweet Lips didn’t get his name because of his gentle disposition. “If he didn’t like you, he kicked you out. If he liked you, he told you to sit down and shut up,” Jose Sarria remembered. This made him one of the most loved and hated bartenders around.
