Labor Day Weekend Roundup: Gay Ways to Say Ta-Ta to Summer

While most of you will be making your way to Rehoboth or some other nearby gay beach mecca over the weekend, there is still plenty to do for those of us holding it down in town—especially if you’re a fan of drag. I round up some of your best options below.


Bev's Bitchfest is taking place Friday night.

Bev’s Bitchfest is taking place Friday night.

Bev has assembled quite the lineup for her fifth go-round of Bitchfest. Taking the stage will be live-singing drag diva Cleo Phatra, and burlesque stalwarts Sinnamon and Gemini Rose, among others.

If you like your drag a little more campy, Sandy Beach is hosting a cabaret evening of her own. Her monthly La Cage Aux Beach stars Gay Bingo’s Summer Clearance and Thunder Showers, and Liza impersonator extraordinaire Gio Michaels.


Icon Ebony-Fierce is celebrating her big 2-5 at the Superdope South Philly House Party. She just so happens to share her birthday with Michael Jackson, so come ready to dance to some MJ.

Mauckingbird Theatre Company is performing a staged reading of Lillian Helman’s 1931 play The Children’s Hour, about two woman teachers at an all-girl boarding school who were accused of being lovers. (There’s a performance Sunday, too).

Haverford Writer Joe Gangemi’s Red Oaks Debuts on Amazon Instant Video


Amazon Instant Video just rolled out a host of pilots, asking viewers to watch and vote on what they want to see become a regular series on the site. Among them is Red Oaks, a comedy co-written by Haverford Township’s Joe Gangemi.

The Steven Soderbergh-produced series is set in a New Jersey suburb in the 1980s. It’s a coming-of-age tale about David Meyers (played by Craig Roberts), a recent college grad who’s working at a country club during his last summer before he has to face the world as a real-life grown up. Paul Reiser and Jennifer Grey also star.

The series has gotten all kinds of praise from media outlets calling it the best of Amazon Instant Video’s new lineup of comedies. I recently caught up with Gangemi, who took some time to answer some questions despite being barraged by phone calls from friends congratulating him on his debut. He was born in Wilmington and studied at Swarthmore. He now lives with his family in Haverford Township. This is his first pilot to get an order, though he’s written film screenplays, including Wind Chill and the upcoming Stonehearst Asylum, and authored two novels, including the Philly-set Inamorata.

Check out our interview and a behind-the-scenes look at the series below.
