Mailbag: Can I Meet Single Hotties at Rebel Cupcake?

Hi [Name Withheld]!

Thanks for your compliment about my blog! Rebel cupcake has two ways to stay in touch--there is a Facebook group (if this link doesn't work search for the group named, aptly, "Rebel Cupcake") where you'll be automatically invited to each event and a text list where I text you once a month and remind you about the party. The text list gets in for $2 off the cover price to all of my events.

Brooklyn Queer Nightlife–Rebel Cupcake Salute to John Waters on Thursday, September 8th

I have a long and spotty relationship to John Waters movies. Much like certain famous authors whose work I didn't follow in a proper order, the first John Waters movie I saw was Pecker and I hated it, didn't understand it and I thus wasn't interested in seeing any more, including Hairspray. I know, a fat girl with a bouffant who hasn't seen Hairspray, odd, right? And I used to watch Divine videos on you tube but had never seen Female Trouble.

Fast forward a few years and I've had some friends walk me through it and now I'm a huge fan. I suggest starting with something like Hairspray or Cry-Baby. Johnny Depp as a swoon-worthy greaser. See exhibit below.

When Glenn Marla told me he was thinking about doing performance art about how many times he's been asked to portray Divine I knew a John Waters Rebel Cupcake was just the thing.
