December Newsletter

What the… ? How did this happen? It is December already!

I would like to welcome all our new clients to the Priscilla’s fold and of course thank our existing clients for their ongoing support. It is our pleasure and our privilege to serve such an amazing group of people. It is especially nice to meet you all face to face from time to time and get to know you all a little bit better each time.

 

Exciting news! Irene has resigned her job as a teacher and will be devoting her time to Priscilla’s! That means that she will have more flexibility when it comes to makeovers, accompanied outings and other Priscilla’s work that you need from her. Sadly, the education system is losing a phenomenal teacher, but their loss is our gain!

 

As I am sure you all know we had a karaoke Party at the end of November. Thanks to Hilton and his staff. It was as ever a great evening, thank you for your hospitality. It was great to see a few new faces as well as the regulars. It was especially nice to meet some Facebook friends in person and of course catch up with all our friends and clients. Unfortunately, the massive thunderstorm kept some people away and a few confirmed guests decided not to come, but those who braved the elements seemed to have a good time.

The party was held at Trouble which has just recently moved venue. The venue is quite pleasant with an outside area where you can chill and relax. The inside area has space for a few pool tables and a dance floor. There is also apparently a private bar that is nearly ready for use. The ladies’ toilets are very nice. Far better than the previous venues toilets. They were clean and well-appointed which is not always the case when dealing with bars and pubs. The mirror was good and made doing one’s makeup touch ups easy. Some of the previous establishment’s ‘regulars’ were there and it was nice to see straight people, gay people, transgender people all intermingling and accepting each other’s basic humanity. A few brave souls sang but I think most of us were happy to ‘just be’, chat, socialise and enjoy the opportunity of being our authentic selves in a safe and accepting place.

 

For those who are interested, Mantopia are organising an LGBT party on 17 December. Unfortunately, I won’t be attending but Irene is available (by appointment) to help anyone with makeup and or dressing should you need her services. As usual, please contact us for details and to make the appointment. For details about the event itself, please contact Mantopia directly.

We are still looking at the possibility of organising a block booking to go and see the stage production of Priscilla Queen of the Desert which is coming to Johannesburg in April 2017. Please let us know if this is something you would be interested in doing.

 

Please remember that with effect from 1 January 2017 storage/rental fees will be increasing from R250 per month to R350 per month.

I am just your average happily married and monogamous semi closeted crossdresser. I am very private and discreet, some may even say shy. My interests include international affairs,current affairs, history, economics, investments, physics, and literature My interest in biology is pretty much limited to sex. Fantasy and science fiction is most enjoyable as is Lee Child. I am a big fan of art house cinema. My musical tastes include punk, new age, heavy metal, classic rock, hard rock, reggae, ska, world music (particularly African contemporary), baroque, medieval, classical, romantic and some country. Opera is best avoided. I play air guitar to beginner level and the fool. I sing in tune at least once in an octave. I am broad minded I love to cook.
