Alec Mapa: No Fats, Fems, or Asians
I’m a big fan of Alec Mapa’s. I was so excited for this show! For the show, Rafael, Brian, and Julian came with! I love going to events at the Gay and Lesbian Center’s: Village at Ed Gould Plaza. I think either all or a majority of the events that are held there donate money back to the Gay and Lesbian Center. The Renburg Theater, which is inside the Village, is a great venue. It’s pretty big but it still feels intimate.
The show was very funny. I thought it was going to be just stand-up comedy but it was a little stand-up, a little bit of choreographed dancing, some singing, and special appearances by Calpernia and the lady who plays the funny old asian lady. Yeah that’s right, Rafael, Brian, Julian, or I couldn’t remember her name or what show/movie she’s been in. But it was cute.
Calpernia Addams came out and did a country number with Alec and the dancer boys. She busted out with a fiddle and started playing away. It was really good!! I wasn’t too surprised that she was there since Alec was the host of her reality tv dating show for Logo: Transamerican Love Story. I’ve seen Calpernia everywhere these days. She was at Legendary Bingo at Hamburger Mary’s promoting her show at Logo. It was either there or at some other event where I learned that Calpernia’s story was made into the movie Solder’s Girl. That movie was so powerful and moving and to know that it was about her real life experience, was very powerful to me. I’ve been a fan of hers ever since. I even got to meet her at LA Pride 2008.
But back to the show. The show was pretty funny but there were definitely some fucked up parts! There was a part in the show where Alec was talking about his adopted dog and how the dog passed away a while back. It was so touching and emotional except that right after that…they went into a musical number and the singer was dressed like a big shaggy dog and they were singing Mika’s Happy Ending. It was fucked up! But I have to say the female singer throughout the show was amazing. AMAZING!! We had a really good time.
After the show the Village had an art exhibit at the Advocate and Gochis Galleries which are inside the Village also! I totally wanted to stay because the exhibit was really interesting it was a photography exhibit on trans models. There was free booze and a lot of gay celebs. We saw Jay Rodriguez from Queer Eye, Darryl Stephens from Noah’s Arc, and super hottie Reichen Lehmkuhl. Brian and I were interested in staying and seeing the exhibit but Rafael and Julian were over it. So Brian and I quickly walked through the exhibit and then we were done! Oh well. We did have tons of fun though! Rafael got back to my place and then wanted to drink and I was like…hello we could have had free cocktails at the gallery! Another night….same Rafael!!
