Last Week in Review
This week was full of all kinds of unexpected surprises. I attended this fantastic pageant at The Honey Pot, where, to my surprise, I saw Alexis Mateo and Shangela from RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 3. The crowd around them was a little much for me to bear so I just sashayed away to the victory party for the pageant, which was held at RISE Sundays, and who did I come across again… yep, Alexis and Shangela.
Well, this time I was able to make their acquaintance and they couldn’t have been sweeter. The surprises didn’t stop there because that following Tuesday I went over to Tabu Ultralounge for Tabu Tuesdays only to find Miss Yara Sofia from RuPaul’s Drag Race doing a guest appearance. Looks like Tampa has become quite the drag scene. As always, until next week… much love to you all! Peace out, Scott.
