"... Dexter's brand of entertainment is arguably the most compellingly, refreshingly honest there is." Jazz Times, June 2008 GO SEE HER!




Del Shores' fought a good, hard fight, but at this time, there will be no Season 2 of "Sordid Lives: The Series" starring Jason Dotley and Leslie Jordan and he has no answer about Season 1 DVD. It is all a big mess that he can't discuss at this time, but someday, we will know everything.
He will continue to write and entertain us. He appreciates our loyalty and support. You have no idea! Go to his website and show your support, http://www.delshores.net/. Del says
"My friend, my fans. In no way to I endorse the publishing of email addresses of the executives at LOGO or the producers of the series. I kindly ask that please remove them from pages all your pages. I thank you for your support, but please please email all your comments to:

http://www.logoonline.com/about/contact.jhtml -- you will get a standard response, but in that, you are heard.

xox Del"

And I am in agreement with him. The more professionally this whole thing is handled, the more likely it will have a positive outcome..

Last Wednesday night, I did HUMP NIGHT AT THE IGUANA in NYC. Sue Matsuki did an incredible job subbing in for Joan Crowe. Joan has had a couple of rough weeks attendance-wise (rainy night and Passover) but you all know how management at most of these places is, they are talking about pulling the plug if their bottom line doesnt improve over the next 2 weeks.

So I am appealing to you to help Joan keep this night going so we all have a fun place to play. So she is offering you all a comp cover if you go and take someone with you. ( or 2 for one however you want to look at it). My objective in posting this is to get people in there eating and drinking and enjoying great entertainment in the process. If you can help spread the word or have any ideas for Joan, we would greatly appreciate it.
