Lezzbook's 1st Annual DJ Smackdown In Review!

Whew! Last weekend was crazy bananas. Between it being my 30th (eh, hem) birthday last Thursday and partyin' it up with the gang at Pony that night, busting out jams atStonewall FC's annual Gay Prom Friday night, and playin' at Lezzbook's first ever event(the 1st Annual DJ Smackdown) on Saturday, I can honestly say I was wiped. Oh yeah, I had my sister from Arizona visiting as well. So this explains why I am just writing up my experience of the Lezzbook party today - nearly one week after. I was tired and needed some time to recoup, which lead to being buried and needing to catch up. Excuse me for being human. Anyway...about the Lezzbook party....

Full disclosure requires me to be completely forthright. Sometimes I don't gel with the Lesbians. Yes, I know that I am one, but I still happen to somehow find myself mostly with gay boys as close friends and having the most fun playing for very mixed crowds. This isn't to say I don't like Lesbians, because god knows I do. Clearly. Lesbians tend to wanna hear Hip Hop, and I don't play Hip Hop as a general rule. Lesbians can never seem to just enjoy the music and get into it. They generally ruin the experience of DJing for them through repeated requests as if you as a DJ are some kind of jukebox as opposed to an artist. Anyway, the long and the short of it is, I wasn't sure what I was getting myself into with this Lezzbook event. However, the money was going to the It Gets Better Project. How do you say no to that?

I can happily say that this event way exceeded my expectations. We arrived early and the place was already filling up (at 8:30PM!). I was paid within an hour of arriving (and before I even played my set). Even with a few sound issues at the beginning of my set (which were easily worked out), I had a BLAST playing for the crowd - without one complaint or request, THANKYOUVERYMUCH. There were gorgeous Go-Go's (which included some of Seattle's hottest Burlesque celebutantes) as well as a hot-ass boy, also dancing (yes a boy, at a LESBIAN event), who danced with his schlong fully extended in some sort of special pleather undies. I don't think the Ginger Girlgot any photos of that - otherwise I would totally share. 

Lisa Pittman, the godmother of all things lesbionic in Las Vegas was the headliner. It was nice to see her. The last time I saw her I ended up with two black eyes and a broken nose. Hey. It was Vegas. Gimme a break! Her set was amazing, sans the Amy Winehouse remix she started to play (to a very disapproving crowd), which she quickly recovered from. There were cast members from "The Real L Word" in attendance as well, which had a good portion of the crowd over the moon with excitement. They seemed nice enough, but I don't watch the show so I was totally out of the loop. Me being the drag hag that I am, I was most excited about the presence of and performances by Lily Armani. My first time officially working with her. It was also, in a word, AWESOME.

Oh, one more thing about this Lezzbook event that set it apart....it wasn't exclusive to WOMEN. It was completely open to the boys as well. Quite a refreshing change of pace, in my opinion.

Honestly folks, I can't say enough about my experience playing at this event, forLezzbook (and founder Beth Darr). It was such a great night! My advice? The next time they have an event, check it out, AND, if you're a Lez who likes to network, go sign up at Lezzbook.com.

Marriage Equality Update!

OLYMPIA – Jim Moeller didn't think he would ever see the day when gay marriage was legal in Washington.

But after Sen. Mary Margaret Haugen, D-Camano Island, announced her support for a same-sex marriage bill Monday, Moeller's dream appears likely to come true. With backing from Gov. Chris Gregoire and now enough votes in the Legislature, the legalization of same-sex marriage is on the verge of success. Moeller, a state representative from Vancouver, is a leading advocate for gay marriage.

"You never believe you're really going to get there," he said. "Honestly, I'm overwhelmed. It's been the holy grail for many years."

For the past 16 years, Moeller has been an openly gay lawmaker – first as a city council member starting in 1995 and then as a state representative from 2002. He is the Legislature's speaker pro-tempore.

The fight for gay marriage is not just personal for Moeller.

"I'm not going to get married," he said. "That's not why I'm doing this. But I have met numerous constituents who want to get married and they can't."

For Moeller, the issue comes down to basic human rights. The law as it stands is discriminatory, he said.

"Why would other people deny people the right to marry the ones they love?" Moeller said. "I don't understand. Separate but equal doesn't work."

State law grants same-sex couples the rights of married couples but not the official title of marriage. That was progress, but Moeller said advocates did not want to settle on domestic partnerships or anything short of actual marriage. They have used a shrewd strategy to move their cause forward, Moeller said. Each year, they have slowly pushed the bar a little higher.

"An incremental approach has worked in the state of Washington," he said.

Sen. Craig Pridemore, chair of the Government Operations, Tribal Relations and Elections Committee, said the gay-marriage bill could reach the floor for a vote as soon as next week.

Opponents push for voter repeal

Despite Haugen providing the Legislature with the tipping-point vote that proponents needed, the battle over gay marriage in Washington is not over.

Earlier this month, attorney Stephen Pidgeon filed an initiative to give voters an opportunity to repeal the gay marriage law if the bill passes in this legislative session.

Pidgeon says the phrasing of the state's legal definition of who qualifies for marriage is far too ambiguous. "It really is not an anti-gay (initiative)," he said.

The initiative needs 241,153 signatures from registered voters by July 6 to qualify for the November ballot. Usually, 320,000 signatures is a safe mark to ensure enough valid signatures have been gathered, said David Ammons, the communication director for Secretary of State Sam Reed.

Joseph Backholm, the executive director of the Family Policy Institute of Washington, also announced Monday that he would spearhead a referendum to repeal legalization of gay marriage. Pidgeon said he plans to keep pushing for his initiative whether or not Backholm's referendum goes on the ballot.

An October, 2011, poll from the University of Washington's Center for Survey Research indicated that 55 percent of voters would uphold same-sex marriage in a referendum vote, with 38 percent of the poll's 938 respondents saying they would vote to repeal.

Timing has been significant for the issue, Moeller said, speculating that a majority of voters will stand behind the legalization effort.

"There was enough support for it this year," he said, referring to the Legislature, "and I think culturally we have changed."
