    This Week's Quote

    I realize that just living my truth of what I am, there’s one less person to fight me in my own head.

    Saint Betty

    If you live in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, you have the chance to witness ecclesiastical history.

    This Sunday evening the DFW Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence will present "The Sainting of Betty White!" On the eve of what would have been White's 100th birthday, the Sisters plan to perform a "blessing and Sainting" of the recently deceased Golden Girl, followed by drinks at a lesbian bar and a gay bar.

    Normally the canonization process takes years, but the Sisters are in a hurry. White worked tirelessly for animals, and the Sisters want to use the occasion of her birthday to spur donations to Dogs Matter, a local non-profit that provides foster care for pooches whose owners are in rehab.

    Betty White. Dogs. Addiction. Drag nuns. The only way the event could get any gayer is if some real priests show up.

    Christmas 2021

    It's Christmas day. Santa brought me a cold.

    This was already a less than cheery holiday for me. In the last five months, my mother passed away, my divorce became final and my brother-in-law received a diagnosis of stage 4 cancer.

    Add in the brand spanking new COVID variant, inflation and my exasperation over the willingness of so many of my countrymen to continue believing in the lies of Hey Mr. Tangerine Man, and, well, let's just say I've been taking to heart those enlightened messages about how happiness at Christmas isn't required.

    I've aimed to leaven my Scrooge-like impulses with a little whimsy. My mask of choice these last weeks features Snow Miser and Heat Miser, two flashy characters from the 1974 Rankin/Bass Christmas special "The Year Without a Santa Claus."

    Unfortunately, so few people have recognized the images that I feel like a 500-year-old. With a cold.

    Today I'm wearing socks I got as a gift last year. They're purple with snowflakes—and rainbow stripes and unicorns.

    It's a lonely Christmas, but thank goodness I have queer whimsy to help see me through.

    Good Thing He's a Diplomat

    The U.S. Senate has confirmed Christopher Lamora to be the ambassador to Cameroon.

    Lamora is openly gay.  Homosexuality is illegal in Cameroon.

    And you think your job is tough.

    I'll Never Live This Down

    How does a lesbian know she's decrepit?

    When she needs to use her "massager" as a massager.

    Oh, the shame.

    Surprise Party

    Brody Neville was facing a bleak 12th birthday.

    When the Canadian youngster came out as gay several months ago, his friends dumped him. So his mom did what modern parents do:  She put out a call on Facebook.

    Neville arrived at a Calgary park on Saturday, and saw what he assumed was an unusually large crowd waiting for the ice cream truck. But the dozens of people weren't there to celebrate overpriced ice on a stick. They were there to celebrate him.

    Family, friends and strangers gave him presents. Drag queens performed. A fire engine stopped by—probably to the relief of the drag queen who'd performed a monstrous split.

    "Thank you everybody for this," Neville told the crowd. "This is the best day of my life!"

    I'm not crying, you're cry . . . oh the hell with it, I'm crying.

    There's nothing wrong with being gay. I have plenty of friends who are going to hell.
