Glitter Spank! Brooklyn Dance Party Rebel Cupcake Thursday September 20th

Y’all, I found a gif on Tumblr awhile ago and was inspired to try it out. It involves two really fun things–glitter and spanking!

A friend of mine in Texas said it’s harder than it looks but I’m all about trying! And lots of glitter.

Anyway, creating a party from a spanking gif is a lot easier than this Blanche side eye.

I booked a couple of notoriously good spankers for the party’s entertainment.

Felice Shays is a Femme feminist performance artist and recently returned to New York City. The number she’s performing is her most ubiquitous.

The last time I performed with Kelli Dunham she referred to Rebel Cupcake as being “in the middle of the night” whereas I still maintain that starting the show at 11 means it’s actually early for a nightlife show. We might actually have entirely opposite circadian rhythms. But even if she might show up in pajamas and a snuggie, Kelli will still be hilarious. And I’m sure a glitter spank is exactly up her alley.

Fancy Feast, our stage kitten, is forever ready, willing and able to do the odd things required for the Rebel Cupcake stage. In the last few months she’s held an umbrella for Kate Bornstein (pictured), acted as back-up go go dancer while I told a story from middle school, was substitute door person while Hana was on vacation, and is this month acting as demo bottom to make all my glitter spank dreams come true. Laura Delarato, our incredible videographer, will be taping it so hopefully the demo will make it into an webisode of Live from Rebel Cupcake!

This month the cupcakes are vegan! Lizxann Disaster is stepping in as a sub!

Rebel Cupcake TV!

I know most of my readers aren’t in Brooklyn. I also know if they are, many of them are like comedian Kelli Dunham and refer to 11 PM as “The middle of the night.” I’ve excitedly had the last few installments of Rebel Cupcake videotaped and edited by the talented Laura Delarato and I thought in my absence I would leave you with a few episodes to watch!

CLASSIC ROCK CUPCAKE!

The witchy lesbionic magic of Nath Ann Carrera. This performance gave me chills–the second song, especially, a gender variant black mass.

I saw the full-length version of My Wife’s Ass last week and it was extremely raw and beautiful. An exploration of fat sex, love, embodiment and life in a fat-hating society. Here is a tiny touch. Also you get to watch Hana Malia boss the audience and Glenn Marla be fetching.

For some reason the Classic Rock Cupcake Miss Mary Wanna performance is being blocked by you tube. While that’s getting cleared up, enjoy her majesty from April’s Fire Sign show!

Video Post: The World Famous *BOB* on Freak Magnets

“I would rather be a fool than not try.”
–The World Famous *BOB*

I had The World Famous *BOB* as a featured performer for Rebel Cupcake in March. She told a captivating story about her New Wave teen years. The RC videographer, Laura Delarato has split it up in two episodes, here’s the second.

Listening to *BOB* tell her story about freak magnets and how freaks are drawn to each other was very soothing… I have already turned back to this video many times over the last couple of weeks for solace.

The next Rebel Cupcake is THIS Thursday, April 12th. Miss Mary Wanna and the cast of Bayside the Un Musical are performing! Dance party tribute to Whitney Houston! More info on the Facebook invite (which won’t allow me to invite people, oddly). Come be with the freaks and outlaws and enjoy each other and dance and be free.

Brooklyn! Next Thursday, February 9th, Rebel Cupcake Celebrates Prince!

The fabulous front desk gay who works at my office often hands me tidbits of gay gossip along with my coffee in the morning. “Willow Smith cut her hair!” was this morning’s news. I immediately made the obvious joke along the lines of “I whip my… wait a minute” and then it reminded me of this amazing video shot by Laura Delarato for Rebel Cupcake last month.

Athens Boys Choir performs “I Whip My Faux Hawk.” You’ll love it. A queer homage to the glory days of Willow’s hair.

And speaking of Rebel Cupcake, it’s next week! You should come! all the details are below and on the Rebel Cupcake page.

I love Prince a lot and I think the best dance floor action for Rebel Cupcake of all time was last year’s Prince tribute.

Janie Martinez is an actress, movement artist and featured fatty on the Adipositivity Project. (I love that photo.) We shared a soulful acapella version of “When Doves Cry” last week and I know she loves Prince like I do.

LeRoi Prince is a Rebel Cupcake regular, whose debut on the stage was at last year’s Prince tribute. I can’t wait to see more. Also you may remember LeRoi from the all queer Outsiders cast.

Ben Lerman wowed me with a ukelele version of “Super Bass” at our shared New Year’s Eve gig and I’m looking forward to his Rebel Cupcake debut.

The gourmet cupcakes from hot Femme baker Morgan Hart are themed on Little Red Corvette and the photo booth is going to be amazing and maybe Heather will let me borrow the unicorn we found on the street, a little gift from the goddess to us.

It appears the second weekend of the month is becoming the “it” month to be a queer in Brooklyn (or visit town). Hey Queen, the BFF party to Rebel Cupcake has moved to the second Saturday, and Niki and DJ Average Jo are doing a Sunday party called Low Rider. You should also join the Rebel Cupcake group on Facebook to see the amazing photo booth photos and also be in on the invites as soon as they are hot off the press.

I’m back shortly with another post I’m almost finished with about my inaugural experiences with acupuncture. Until then I bid you adieu from my land of boxes! (So grateful the move part is just about over and it’s all unpacking, painting and installing from here!)
