    Night of 100 Queens is upon us: Watch as drag queens from every nook and cranny of the city (I think the number is actually 82 now) will gather at the Trocadero in the attempt to beat the Guinness Book of World Record for “Largest Drag Queen Show.”

  • PA Ballet hosts its first-ever LGBT Night at Nutcracker Market on Friday. Besides shopping, there will be a special performance by the Philadelphia Gay Men’s Chorus (no doubt singing some of the numbers from their recent holiday hoedown), a meet-and-greet with Pennsylvania Ballet dancers, and food and cocktails from the Garces group. Should be a fun, festive night—and something a little outside the box. We hope to see you there!
  • Jonathan Hernandez, Mary Vice and Mister E join Philly burlesque queen Lascivious Jane for Mama’s House: “Philly’s tastiest all-female cabaret.”
  • DJ Robert Drake spins at the final Sex Dwarf of 2014, an evening that celebrates new wave one-hit wonders.

The bawdy queen will make her Philly debut Friday night at Voyeur in her solo comedy show And the Beat Goes On. In it, she will talk about working in the drag business for the past 25 years, and remind all you heifers that she was the Queen of Shade before Bianco Del Rio ever thought about gluing on those wonky lashes.
  • Believe it or not Liberty City Kings Drag and Burlesque matriarch Lascivious Jane turns 40 this week, and she’s celebrating with her Mama’s House all-female cabaret. She’ll be joined by burlesquers Luci Rising, Jezabelle von Jane, and Reggie Bügmüncher. Stick around when the show’s over for the dance party, and to wish Miz Jane a happy birthday.

Star-Trek-The-Motion-Picture-mr-spock-10920214-800-1100

My Trekkie officemate Joel is flipping out right now: To celebrate the 35th anniversary of Star Trek: The Motion Picture, Philadelphia Film Society just announced it is teaming with, who else, Geekadelphia, to screen all six of the original films on six consecutive nights at The Roxy. “Star Trek–35 Years on 35mm: A Retrospective” begins on December 5th, with each night hosted by an array of local cinephiles, like Phil Nobile Jr of Badass Digest and Dan Tabor of Geekadelphia. There will also be a string of pre- and post-screening events, like Q&As, a Star Trek-themed wine night, a William Shatner impersonation contest, and a screening of fan-made Star Trek Web Series Starship Farragut. 

There are a variety of ways to purchase tickets—individually, a full series pass, or a four pack—but I’d hurry. If Joel’s glee is any indication, these suckers are going to go fast. For more information and purchase tickets, go here. I’ve pasted the full schedule below:
