We suspect some of you may have three if not four day weekends planned for Labor Day. From Marriage Equality Day rallies to RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 5 Winner Jinkx Monsoon, there’s something for everyone to make sure they have the gayest Labor Day week(end).

Friday August 30

Get your drag face ready because RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 5 Winner, Jinkx Monsoon, takes over Play on Friday August 30.

Saturday August 31

The day is finally here. In response to a last minute Tennessee Legislature resolution declaring Saturday August 31 as “Traditional Marriage Day”, TEP is mobilizing communities across Tennessee for Marriage Equality Day. Rallies and events are held across the state and more information can be found here.

Blowing buildings up, blackmail, brownies and Britney Spears. Those are the four B’s in Mark Brennan Rosenberg’s second book, Eating My Feelings. Unless you count his stepmom bitch he swears plotted to send him away (successfully) to fat camp. Rosenberg makes a Nashville stop August 31 at the Vanderbilt University Barnes and Noble to promote the just-released tale.

Nashville can claim this year’s ­­Idol runner-up Kree Harrison so you can bet that Bridgestone Arena will be packed when the ­Idol’s Live Tour makes its stop Saturday night.

Drag yourself out for Dragaroo on Sunday September 1 at Play Dance Bar. They are also hosting a foam party so break out those sexxxy drawers and dance the night away in foam.

Post-Covid travel planning

Who would have thought that we would have to get through a pandemic in order to appreciate the small things we have, such as the ability to simply pack our bags and hit the road?

For two years, there’s been nothing left for us travel junkies to do but sit at home and try to find new destinations that we will conquer once we defeat what appears to be the biggest villain of the 21st century. But once that happens, hold your bags tight because we will be up for some of the most interesting travel experiences. Take a look at some ideas for your post-COVID traveling plans:
