DJ Lady Blazian and DJ Quiet Storm present the party we’ve all been waiting for… FANTASY PRIDE, a summer night cruise aboard the MV Destiny on Friday, July 10 from 11PM-3AM. Tickets are $50, which includes a complimentary rum swizzle and hors d’oeuvres. Cash bar. Bathing suits are optional (personally, we plan to get wet)!
Mothers will be in for a treat on Sunday evening as the Island’s premier female impersonator, Mark “Sybil Barrington” Anderson and friends will put on a performance at City Hall, which will be in Mr. Anderson’s words, nothing short of “fabulosity”.
All proceeds will go to the Centre Against Abuse.
It’s the Wednesday before Valentine’s Day… Come out, meet and greet, LOVE who you are, and BE YOURSELF! ♥

An estimated 12,000 people walked, danced and rode along the downtown parade route capping off 10 days of World Pride celebrations.
The “Queen of Bermuda” came ready to talk politics as well the importance of celebrating World Pride and, unsurprisingly, showed up dressed to kill.
“I’m from a country that at one time it was legal to discriminate based on sexual orientation,” said Sybil Barrington, one of an estimated 12,000 people who walked, danced and rode along the parade route that capped off 10 days of Pride celebrations.
Barrington, clad in tight iridescent pants, a sash and tiara, explained that a little over a year ago the government in Bermuda amended the human rights act to legally protect people against discrimination because of their sexual orientation when they are seeking employment or housing.
“So we are here celebrating that,” said Barrington, who was born in Bermuda and, after establishing a career as a drag queen in New York City, returned there to live.
Bermuda has become a more tolerant place, but as a country they still have a long way to go, said Barrington who walked with the Rainbow Alliance of Bermuda.
Religious and LGBT identities have a lot in common, says leading academic figure

Rainbow Alliance of Bermuda, in collaboration with the Centre for Justice, the Human Rights Commission, Kinsfolk Bermuda, and Two Words and a Comma, are excited to announce Bermuda’s participation in WorldPride 2014 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, from June 20-29, culminating in the Annual Pride Parade on Sunday, June 29th, 2014.
It’s springtime in Bermuda, which means that hundreds of college students are visiting our shores for some fun in the sun, and a much-needed break from exams and lectures (not to mention the cold weather!).
Among these spring breakers are a large number of students from Harvard University – mainly, members of the Hasty Pudding Institute of 1770. 2014 marks the 50th anniversary of their annual trip to Bermuda, and they bring with them a huge infusion of culture, music, and fit young visitors! 😉
