It’s great that drag is blossoming around the city but we want to make sure you know about a special one night only performance coming up Friday, September 6. Deception returns to the stages at Play Dance Bar. Hundreds turned out earlier this year to help raise money for Deception’s Leukemia treatments. Well, she is making a speedy recovery and looking just as beautiful as ever, proving bald is the new blonde! While she is being a good diva and following doctors’ orders we can hardly wait for her big return to the Play stage for a one-night performance.

And with pageant season in full swing. We’re ready to crown some queens. Our first opportunity will be at Miss Gay Tennessee America on September 15. Held at Play, Nashville's own Suzy Wong will pass the crown on to the next queen to represent Tennessee at Miss Gay America! The pageant begins at 7:00 p.m. and admission is $10. Come back tomorrow and check out Hollis Hollywood's full report on contestant Giselle Nicole.

And for the pageant I’m most looking forward to, 2013 Music City All American Goddess, will take place September 30. This is personally one of my favorite systems as I competed last year and will return again this year. Divas will flock from all over the country to compete in this prelim for the AAG system which has already produced two National All American Goddesses. These queens are sure to give us one amazing pageant everyone won't soon forget. So, be sure to come out and support your favorite queen as she begins the long journey to the national pageant.

Held at Play, the pageant will begin at 9 p.m. and Nashville Untucked plans to spill all the dirty deets on the next goddess.

Come back soon to check out our upcoming Q&A’s with some the city’s best entertainers. Until then, stay tucked.

WhistlePig + Alfa Romeo F1

SHOREHAM, VT (September 13, 2023) — WhistlePig Whiskey, the leaders in independent craft whiskey, and Alfa Romeo F1 Team Stake are waving the checkered flag on a legend-worthy release that’s taking whiskey to G-Force levels. The Limited Edition PiggyBack Legends Series: Alfa Romeo F1 Team Stake Barrel is a high Rye Whiskey selected by the Alfa Romeo F1 Team Stake drivers, with barrels trialed in their wind tunnel to ensure a thrilling taste in every sip.

The third iteration in WhistlePig’s Single Barrel PiggyBack Legends Series, the Alfa Romeo F1 Team Stake Barrel is bottled at 96.77 proof, a nod to Valtteri Bottas’ racing number, 77, and the precision of racing. Inspired by Zhou Guanyu, the first Chinese F1 driver, this Rye Whiskey is finished with lychee and oolong tea. Herbal and floral notes of the oolong tea complement the herbaceous notes of WhistlePig’s signature PiggyBack 100% Rye, rounded out with a juicy tropical fruit finish and a touch of spice.

Nurse Practitioner Ari Kravitz

When I started medical transition at 20 years old, it was very difficult to get the care I needed for hormone replacement therapy because there are very few providers trained in starting hormones for trans people, even though it’s very similar to the hormones that we prescribe to women in menopause or cisgender men with low testosterone.

I hope more providers get trained in LGBTQ+ healthcare, so they can support patients along their individual gender journey, and provide the info needed to make informed decisions about their body. I’ve personally seen my trans patients find hope and experience a better quality of life through hormone replacement therapy.
