Important Question

This weekend I'm off to a big Gay & Lesbian Bush Dance in Canberra, about 3 hours drive out of Sydney. I'm really looking forward to it, not least because it'd be really nice to get away from Sydney for a weekend.

But answer me this. What does one wear to a Gay & Lesbian Bush Dance?

A. Hazzard Drag?



B. VP Cowboy drag?



C. Clampett drag, drag?



Or, D. Something with a more 'Aussie' feel?

lol :-)

well, there doesn't seem to be much difference between A and B save for the hat and 'tache.

and C probably won't get you the right sort of dates...

but D isn't going to get you many dates at all!

(unless there's some interesting fetishists there...)

what about a flannie, a pair of molies, and blunnies?

no wait, I think for a fancy do, it's a button-down instead of a flannie.

and polish those blunnies or you're not allowed out of the house, mister!

Will this be any different from the average gay "circuit party"? I certainly hope so...

yani said...

Mmmmmmm Hazzard....

Sorry... were you saying something? ;)

Speedy, I kind of already have a flannie - but it's Ralph Lauren. I think that may pass muster, I mean it ups The Gay a bit. But the blunnies I might need to buy...

Thombeau, I think any event where they advertise a 'dance caller' is not going to be a traditional circuit party style event. Do si do and around we go!

The Other Andrew said...

Yani, I know right. We love The Schneider.

(And he's still got it I'm pleased to see.)

Maybe you're supposed to wear a bush?... never mind. :)

Check shirt (too hot for flannies), jeans, and boots. Hat optional. Yee-hah!

Ten gallon hats only look good on Texas oil billionaires. Go the Ralph Lauren flannie. Wear shoes you can dance in.

Post-Brokeback Mountain you should go as a cowboy. You might meet your own Jack Twist!

Meanwhile, completely off-topic, here's some tiny knitwear:

i have never heard of a Bush Dance.
Do you rock to Wuthering Heights and other songs by Kate B?

Michael said...

A! A! I'll scream it to the heavens, A!

There's this (likely) doomed series playing here now called Journeyman, about time jumping. Anyway, the hero recently ended up at a 70s key party and John Schneider was this random guy there. At a key party. So if, like, I pulled his key, we'd? ::melts::

Have fun at your party! Will they do square dancing? Do-si-do and whatnot?

This has nothing to do w/your post, but look!

Ah, I wish you'd mentioned this a couple weeks ago. We had a helmet that would've been PERFECT for #4! :)

The Other Andrew said...

Ur-spo, I think it involves hiding in the bushes somehow, but I'm not sure.

Michael, we love the Schneider! He's ageing VERY WELL.

FG, OMG! I feel like such a star! :) I just left a comment to say thanks to them for the shout out.

Kris, I know right! Bad timing, but what can you do?

Michael said...

And, like, OMG! I just followed Freakgirl's link. You're gonna be a big star. Your face is gonna be up on billboards. You're gonna make a lot of money for the Stardust, Nomi Malone!

The Other Andrew said...

My big fat cupcake-stuffed face!

I'd say you should wear a bush to a "bush dance,"
or is that too literal?


anyway, around here "Gay and Lesbian Bush" are pretty oxymoronic adjectives.
