Raunchy provocateur Lady Bunriy hops into Big D on April Fool's Day
By Daniel A. Kusner Life+Style Editor
Even jet-set drag legends are feeling the
pinch. The other day, "Wigstock" creator Lady
Bunny e-mailed me that her gig to DJ at a corpo-
rate event in Dallas was just cancelled. However,
her rickety Los Angeles-to-New York airline
ticket had her stuck in D-FW, and Bunny didn't
want to just ''sit in a cheap hotel, picking my
butt." So she wrangled an appearance in our gay-
borhood — bringing her offensive and sidesplit-
ting comedy to Woody's on April Fool's Day.
What's her act like?
Last time I saw Bunny was at the 2008 Gay
Video News Awards in San Francisco. Serving as
emcee, she did an "All That Jazz" reinterpretation
called "All That Jizz." And closing the show, the
severely inebriated hostess slurred her way
through some poignant closing remarks: "In
addition to all the artistry and magic we've seen
tonight, you're all a bunch of sluts! "
Then she spit her gum out at the audience. A
few minutes later, she was on her knees begging
Chad Flunt to drop his pants.
The other day, I caught up with Bunny —
who's also an opinioned political blogger —
about the pope and Dallas' drag scene.
What's new? ! just got back from
Paris Fashion Week where I DJ-
ed at Barbie's 50th party. As I
made my entrance at the
Viktor & Rolf show. A journalist
asked who I was. I said
"Michelle Obama." They all
laughed — including Michelle's
personal stylist, I fin a, who texted the
first lady about what I'd just said, and the two
had a giggle over it. I then told Irina that I might
be available to perform at the White House if my
schedule permits, assuming that they can afford
me on their recession budget. She told me that
the Obamas just got a dog and didn't need
Name a challenge you'd like to see on the next sea-
son of "RuPaul's Drag Race." RuPaul is a dear
friend. However, I can't understand this coun-
try's preoccupation with who is the best design-
er, model, chef, drag queen, etc. The real chal-
lenge we all face is staying afloat in a dying
economy. So why on earth would we be
enthralled by stupid competitions, like "Do a
'Project Runway' photo shoot as a member of a
different race" challenge?
I'd like to challenge all of the queens on Ru's

show to regain some of the fighting activist
spirit, which led to the birth of the gay rights
movement at Stonewall. We queens and trannies
should be very proud of our heritage. So let's
have Ru and his "girls" grab a brick and meet
up with that hideous anti-gay Fred Phelps at his
next demonstration and duke it out.
The pope just denounced condoms. You have one
thing to say the Bishop of Rome: What would
you tell him? You can't be gay and Catholic and
have a brain. This is not some fringe religious
leader like Falwell or Robertson. The pope is
head of the Catholic Church. When he said that
condoms actually help spread AIDS, he's essen-
tially leading his followers to their deaths — like
Jim Jones. Of course, condoms prevent the
spread of AIDS and therefore the pope is a liar.
How can Catholics not denounce this idiot?
Perhaps in his world, there's no need for con-
doms because priests seem to prefer sex with
(presumably) uninfected minors.
What's the reputation of Dallas' drag queens?
Southern drag is usually very polished and pro-
fessional. I only know Whitney Paige, and she is
a brilliant lip-synch artist. I've only seen heron
video, but she tore it apart at Hot Chocolate's
What do you want your Dallas fans to do when they
come see you? Bring drugs. And some extra
coins because I'll be hawking my DVD, "Rated X
Is Woody's charging a cover? Yes — a cover to get
out of the place once I begin my act. Just kid-
ding! There's no cover. But the audience might
need to run for cover when I begin my new paro-
dy of Leona Lewis's "Bleeding Love." Let's just
say it's a bloody sick joke — period!
