As August came to a close, so did the week long festivities to celebrate Calgary, Alberta’s PRIDE.
And with the promise of an amazing party, I decided to pack up my Las Vegas vacation early and return to the city I love to help celebrate on Saturday Night at the ‘Pure Pride’ party
The annual event has never disappointed in the past: hundreds of gays, friends and family once again sweatily danced the night away as a slough of half naked go-go boys continued to pump up the crowd.
Throughout the night, numerous local queens took to the stage to lip sync their favourite songs, but there was one special guest we were all there to see!
RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 6 runner-up Adore Delano!
There is something pretty spectacular that sets this queen apart from the others: she actually sings her own songs!
Adore Delano (aka Danny Noriega) also appeared on season 7 of American Idol.
Yes, (s)he has some pretty amazing musical talents!
She sang and she crowd-surfed that night… And after her ‘hog body’ (a loving term given to Adore from her cast-mates) returned to the stage, she took her bow and headed upstairs for a VIP meet & greet
Now I’m a big fan of all the Ru-girls, and thanks to the event mastermind behind the Pure Pride events that continues to book the biggest & best names, I’ve had the opportunity to meet my fair share of them.
And meeting the fun loving Adore Delano will also go on my wall of fame!
A great night, an amazing DJ, sexy dancers and possibly too many cocktails… It was a no brainer to hop a flight for this party!
Thanks for the amazing memories, I can’t wait to see what’s in store next year!
