Closing 2008 at the KLUB in Nice...

A friend told me I looked like a mega trav' with that dress. No wonder i could win the Trav'Academy on December 28th in my childhood town Nice ;-) Actually, I was simply on holiday with no intention except doing nothing... didn't even know about clubs there until I met Emmanuel (who gave me the flyer...) and Jean-Baptiste...He said the Klub was THE club to go, the biggest gay venue on the Côte d'azur. And there was this drag contest coming up (actually, drag queen contest as I am not so sure they saw many kings before last night...). And the fact is I broke my rib by helping somebody on the train a couple of days ago... And the person I trust most keeps telling me the stage is always healing me. So I decided to go. To heal, of course. I always forget everything on stage. Pain, doubt, tireness, tensions, the stage is the place to be... indeed I had no choice, right?

I decided to improvise Femme like You with a minimum of accessoires and bought the rest in a rush hour, and finally convinced the Jury and the audience, first puzzled about who the f* I could be, a man or a woman, I heard it was the question of the night!

The very best was as the Ex of Jean Baptiste asked me: but how could you win if you're not even in drag? :-)  Guys, I tell you, I have to work on my passing to allow more trans*visibility..

But the most important was to meet LaBlack, Emmanuel at the technique, Moussette, Ilona, Arnaud et Karim qui en a même décidé de tourner gay... hmm..

Alors comme j'ai gagné entre autres un week-end à Nice, je reviendrais y remettre le feu cet été!

BONNE ET HEUREUSE ANNÉE À TOUS!!!! les chiffres de 2009 semblent dejá très érotiques non...? ;-9

Closing the Tour in a Crisscrossing Night.

Crisscrossing Night. Photo: Tania A. Yeah, in 2008, I have indeed come full circle, and back in drag to see what´s on the slab... was ready to make it here, in Berlin, for one first and last time, and one time only, in the place that started it all. Six years crisscrossing borders, five continents, 24 frames per second and a couple of broken hearts later, including mine, back at the Schwuz in Berlin to pack it all into one evening only!

A show to break the surface and fathom the depths of Océan.... Beyond every horizon, the ebb and flow between the poles. Creation and destruction. Serenity and ferociousness. Male and female. Fluidity embodied. Abandon all borders, you who enter, and be ready to be swept away... Refuse to be contained. Stretch your comfort zone!

All the acts which had travelled around the globe with me plus all roles, all characters, all genders, all the best in a flamboyant CrissCrossing night with family & friends, and YEAH they were nearly all here at the Schwuz, came from Brussels, Hanover, London, Paris, Sao Paolo, for one night or one week. Oh gosh guys you made my day, well my night, so thank you so much for that celebration over the all borders!

Amaury came to help me remember these moments... Thank you so much, amor! ;-)
