Thanks to Ains for sending this video along!
Don’t you love how it kind of looks like an actual Bat Mitzvah video, what with the Horah and everything?

Okay, okay, okay — I’ll stop talking about the Bat Mitzvah soon enough. But today I have exciting news: Harvey Fierstein sent me a Bat Mitzvah card!
The backstory is that I sent him an invitation since I knew he was in town doing Fiddler on the Roof at the Golden Gate Theatre. I thought, if I can’t get Fran Drescher, I might as well have Harvey! I was a little last-minute about it, and I sent two, but one got returned to sender. But lo and behold!
Who knows (and who cares) if it was him or an assistant or whatever. File this under hilarious. Also, looks like the photo was taken by his brother Ronald (thanks internet research).
One question: would it be too much to ask for a Mazel Tov?!?

Wow. I’m sitting here listening to my new Bette Midler ‘Live at Last’ album in my new teal sequin dress (I didn’t ask for presents, but I wouldn’t say no!) and still feeling ecstatic.
My Bat Mitzvah went off without a hitch: no rain, my gluegun lasted just long enough to make the cake (a Hanukkah-like miracle), and there was a line down the block! I literally had the time of my life and I’m grateful to everyone for dressing up gorgeous, dancing the Horah, and helping me live out this perverted dream!
Seriously, I feel like I’ve made it — not as a star or anything, but as a person in the kind of world I want to live in. And I’ve already heard such overwhelmingly positive feedback — who knows, maybe Lil Miss will throw more parties in her new-found womanhood? (But for now she’s going to sleep for days.)
And the best part: we raised $1500 for the US Social Forum! (If you want to learn/give more, click here.)
Also, while I’m doing thank-yous, let me name all the people I didn’t get to name last night:
PERFORMERS: Sandra O. Noshidi’n't (my sister and co-hostess), Monistat, Mona G. Hawd, Anna Conda, Starr69, Dean Disaster, Vivvyanne ForeverMORE!, and Jupiter!
GO GO GOYS: Sweetcheeks, David, Ryan, Ellie, Julie
DJs: 510’s Finest, Mylo Pony, Pink Lightning
DOOR & COAT CHECK VOLUNTEERS: Ivan, Brittney (with special thanks for the cake!), Louisa, Sarah (with special thanks for my hair piece!), Ed, Sepi, Cary, Devon, Rachel, Val, Bobby
BAT MITZVAH BOYS: Alex, Marc, Maziar, Sergio
ALL AROUND AMAZING VOLUNTEERS: Jerry Lee, Ed, Ainsley, and Philip
THE BLUE MACAW: Barbara, Josette, and all of the bartenders and other staff!
And the part of the toast I forgot: “Here’s to a world based on love and justice… And where everyone can dress like Lady Gaga if and when we want to!”

If you haven’t already, you should look for this shining face on the cover of this week’s SF Bay Guardian (click here for text)! Fine, so you have to look below Cazwell and Amanda Lepore, and even though I don’t want to hate, I wouldn’t be a queen if I didn’t read that crappy crop job they did on my face. But still. I am on Cloud Nine!
So many thanks to Marke B, who is not only a cutie patootie and a sweetheart, but also one of the funniest writers in the Bay Area (and that’s saying a lot with some of the other kids we’ve got up in here), for helping to make this happen!
