My Friends and Neighbors By Mary Khon Hello, Queeridos! Life is full of surprises, isn’t it? “La vida te da sorpresas, sorpresas te da la vida,” says the song. One day you are here, the next you are gone. One day you are in cloud nine, the next you are scrapping food off the floor. One day you have a boyfriend, the next you are hugging a body pillow. One day you are happy, the next you are in shock because life’s too much. This time around I figured that, instead of focusing on my rants, which no…

So, chisme! This past weekend I went out with a friend of mine. I really didn’t want…

A VIEW FROM THE BRIDGE: Confessions of an Antiquated Queen Pecados Buenos By Mary Khon   Hello, Queeridos! Enjoying the third month of the year? I am and to tell you the true, I started enjoying it even more when, last month, during some sort of Día del Amor y la Amistad, celebration, after, once again, getting dumped, I decided that the best way to enjoy life was to treat myself to new stuff and new adventures. Oh, queeridos! I bought shoes, pants, dresses, blouses, shirts, underwear, sweaters, jackets, and so many other things that my three credit cards were…

Existentialism By Mary Khon Hello, queeridos! It is that time of the year again! No, I’m not talking about the time when you buy chocolates and flowers for your loved one, although this is the month for that, but that time of the year when, for whatever strange reasons, I am in a perpetual existential state. Maybe it has to do with the drinking and partying residue from December 1 to January 6, the time I celebrated, drunk, and ate as much as I drink and eat the rest of the year. Or maybe is the fact that since…

New Year’s Resolution By Mary Khon Happy New Year, Queeridos! Another year has come and gone and luckily we are still here. We might not be completely sane but we are still here. Como dice la canción: “Good times and bad times/I’ve seen them all, and my dear, I’m still here.” Since he who shall not be name became supposedly the most important person in the world, supposedly ruling, the allegedly number one country in the world, our lives have been tainted by association. There was a time when we could proudly and loudly claim our number one spot…

PREPARACIONES NAVIDEÑAS By Mary Khon Greetings Queeridos!!! This month marks a year since the start of our moving to Armageddon stage. And yes, my dhalings, you know that I know that you know what I’m taking about. It was a year ago that the unthinkable happened and since then we all been living in a state of constant panic. It is a constant state of panic because the gay community is attack; people of color are attack; immigrants are attack, and if you are like me, a joto an immigrant, and a person of color, well, we seem to be…

Hooking Up! By Mary Khon Hello, my queeridos! When was the last time you had sex? Yes, I know I’m being direct and very forward with my question, but really, did you expect any less from this queen? Well, when was it? A few hours ago? Yesterday? Three days ago? A week ago? A month ago? A year ago? Whenever it happened, it most likely happened because you needed it. Sex is part of being human; it is part of our development, and it is part of being healthy. Many of us have sex on a “regular basis,” while…

Notes from an Antiquated Queen Independencia ByMary Khon Hello Queridos! Welcome to yet another edition of this queen delusional ranting hour. I am your host, Mary Khon! In this episode I wanted to talk about the benefits of how being a bottomis incredibly healthy and helpful for your happiness. However, I still need to do more research into the practice of bottoming (and I mean lots and lots more) because although I hear being a bottom is an experience that makes you cry, howl, scream, sing, call out to the gods, and even beg for more, I has no idea…
