Off with the wheels and a new foreshore claim?

Sun 12 Sep 2004 In: Events

FRIDAY REPORT Things are rocking along in Queenstwon for Gay Ski Week... new friendships have been made and sadly a few also broken, but we cannot comment on that as that would be gossip and we're above that sort of thing. Gourmet Express, the local diner, hosted Drag Juke Box on Wheels. Sadly we had to abandon our wheels for heels as it got too crowded and slippery. About 60 gay boys and a mixture of locals both straight and gay had a camp old time eating, drinking and dancing on table tops... a few sore heads and feet in the morning especailly for those wearing heels... not bad for a Tuesday night out on the town. Wednesday night's Wigs over Wakatipu at the Queenstown Memorial Hall saw an extravaganza of performance from yours truly and Queenie Aotearoa. This applealed to the locals and most of the Aussie boys and English... a new type of drag for many of them. But we performed well and brought down the house with a finale of Maori song, dance and poi. Queenie Aotearoa is thinking very seriuosly about making a claim on the lake foreshore as she has fallen in love with Queenstown. Today the boys had a rip roaring time around the region visiting the vineyards and sampling the local vino... about 35 boys joined in the fun and returned feeling a bit mary... or was it merry. Friday weather permitting we will tandem paraglide from Queenstown Hill over Lake Wakatipu before leaving for the airport to return north... if the wind is blowing we might even be able to paraglide all the way home! The boys are all geared up ready for the "White Out" party tonight... the last event before GaySki Week winds up on Saturday and they all return back to reality... Over and out from B
