Hi all,

Just thought I'd pop in and check up on everyone. Hope you are all well and thriving. I haven't done any manip work for ages...just haven't been feeling it. Instead I've been working on a major project to raise funds for those living with HIV and AIDS.

It's a large format calendar featuring drag queens as 1950's pin-up girls, taking my inspiration from the great Gil Elvgren and Anton Vargas. I've worked on calendars before but this time I'm doing the whole project myself, from selling advertising to fund the production costs to the photography, post-production and calendar sales. So far I've been lucky enough to get some of Australia's most loved drag queens on board and the first two shoots are this week. I'll post images here as they are completed. In the meantime I'll upload the images of our mascots, Betty, Doris and Faye.

If you'd like to support the project you can register for updates at, like our Facebook page… or follow us on Twitter!/dragqueencalend.

By registering for updates you can win tickets to Edward Gant's Amazing Feats of Loneliness at La Boite Theatre in Brisbane, so if you are local make sure you join our mailing list.

I know HIV and AIDS is far more serious in some other countries, but our focus is Australia and in particular we are looking to help those who struggle financially. Due to the cost of medication and a restricted ability to work a disproportionate amount of HIV sufferers live below the poverty line. It's time to get the message back out there about HIV and AIDS as we are seeing a dramatic increase in cases diagnosed each year in Australia.

If you are interested in sponsoring the project, please drop me an email at and I'll forward you a copy of the proposal and media kit.

Sending out the love to all
