This Gender Ain't Big Enough for the Both of Us

    
            Since it’s Friday, I’ll be doing one of our customarily lazy short posts.
           
So I’m in Denver this week, and Bryan and I are exercising the limits of our multitasking skills by daring to both drink beer and discuss our next big writing project at the same time. This is especially complex because where transvestite characters are concerned, there’s always plenty to discuss. I guess you could say that the devil’s in the details. Or maybe the devil is the detail: the one that’s long, hairy, and hard to carry (in a frilly thong).

So, beyond the fact that cross-dressing is one of our major topics of discussion this week, I don’t want to give away too many inches of plot info (in case the sucker becomes an eagerly awaited second or third novel sometime in the near future). And on the topic of plot info, I’m not exactly sure what depth of research is going to be necessary for this novel, but I’m confident that Bryan’s severe dedication to becoming an international bestselling author will help us delve deep into the mind of our protagonist. Yup, I think if we’re going to make this thing believable, one of us is going to have to go undercover on the drag queen scene. And that someone is going to be Bryan.

Why not me, you ask? Well…besides the fact that he’s got much less sasquatchean body hair than me, I’d just like to see Bryan fulfill his lifelong desire of being crowned prettiest he-belle at the Drag Queen Ball. I’m thoughtful like that.
  


            On that note, until next time…

            Cheers,

  1. It's good that you're so comfortable with yourself and friend enough to accompany Ru-Paul-Bryan to the bar. And I'm sure he appreciates that you gave him cleavage.

  2. If you need information about something, drop me a line. I have a friend that used to be into that scene and if he can't tell you what you need to know I'll bet he'll know where to find out.

  6. I don't know which is funnier: the story, the artwork or the labels. (The beer and music's right on.) Damn, this going to be good! ;)

  7. RuPaul's Drag Race is a somewhat good window into the craft behind the scene. If you pay attention to their makeup and, er, props, it's quite enlightening.

  8. If you are dedicated to your craft, any method of research is totally warranted. And needed. And amusing. And makes me giddy with mental images. Or maybe that's the vodka.

    PS - I miss the Wynkoop. Drink one for me.

  11. Bryan has a pretty good rack but not sure a pale green tube top is quite him.

  12. All Bryan would need is a push up bra.

    Which he can borrow from me.

    And your future big writing project sounds intriguing!

  18. Hmm. I'm rather impressed with the dedication to your writing. Though tend to agree with some of the comments - that lime green is doing nothing for his complexion. ;o)

  19. Something tells me your story will put "To Wong Fu with love Julie Newmar (remember that flick w/ Patrick Swayze & Wesley Snipes in drag) to SHAME. Yup, I bet Bryan can rock a pair of Jimmy Choo's better than me!!!!

    Keep us nosy people here posted on the particulars, k?
