Khris Francis at Dudes
 
Khris Francis and his sharp wit have once again returned to Dudes. It doesn't take more than a few minutes for him to warm up and cut up on everything from the Dudes staff and customers to well, you name it. Last Friday night was no exception and everyone in the packed-to-the-rafters nightclub, ended up joining in the fun singing songs about Macaroni and #$%^, cheese and #$%^, creamed #$%^. If you're looking for politically correct humor, this is not the guy you want to hear. But if you can let loose, laugh at yourself, the guy next to you and laugh at your mama, go see Khris Francis!

Pride Factory Celebrates 10 Year Anniversary
Long considered a South Florida gay & lesbian shopping destination, Pride Factory is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year.  The specialty store and coffeehouse marks the event with a special discount during the month of February customers are invited to save 10% on all purchases of $10 or more. Begun in an inauspicious Broward Boulevard storefront a decade ago, Pride Factory has since become a vital part of the local retail scene.  The store moved to its current location, 845 North Federal Highway, during 2000.  Shortly after, the establishment underwent a major expansion & renovation which nearly quadrupled its footprint. Today, 6,000 square foot Pride Factory carries world-class lines of rainbow gear, apparel, music, mainstream & adult movies, lubes, adult toys, books & magazines.  It has become a vital part of the region’s gay, lesbian, bisexual & transgendered community.  High-speed Internet kiosks are also available, permitting on-the-go connectivity.  For tourists, a visit to Pride Factory is often included as part of their travel plans. “Pride Factory has come such a long way since the doors opened so many years ago,” recalls the company’s regional manager, Rocky Bowell.  For seven years, Bowell has steered the store to success at a few different addresses.  “Pride Factory has moved a couple of times,” he explains. “We were first on Broward Boulevard.  A Walgreen's is there now.  Then, we moved to where a bicycle shop is today, at Fourth & Federal.  We moved here about six years ago.  The current location, south of Sears Town, permitted the huge expansion into the Pride Factory you see today.  That’s why we call it America’s Gay Emporium.” Over the past decade, Pride Factory has also become a significant supporter of the local GLBT community.  The company has been a participant in Win's Golf Tournament, The Women's White Party, Winter Party, Pridefest, the Stonewall Street Festival, and many other events & organizations. Even more expansion is slated for Pride Factory, this time on the Internet.  A complete online store at PrideFactory.com is slated for launch during the next several months. “I can hardly wait to see what the future holds for Pride Factory,” remarks Bowell.  “It’s gonna be great!”
THE SLEAZY’S ARE COMING—THE SLEAZY’S ARE COMING
The 3rd annual sleazy awards will be held on Monday night March 6, at Elements bar.  The event is a fundraiser to benefit local charities and has been able to donate over $5000.00 in the past 2 years. The Sleazy’s are a fun award show honoring such people as best top in town, sleaziest bar owner & butchiest lesbian to name a few.  The charities that have been chosen this year are Lulu’s foundation which is a pet rescue group and other local AIDS charities. The Sleazy’s are a fun way to get bar owners, bar staff, and bar patrons together for a night of fun and sleaze. Tickets for this event are $2.33 (it’s for charity, so cough up a little more). If you want a table, you have to bring your own. The hosts of this year’s show will be Russell from Ramrod and the ever amazing Daisy Deadpetals. Other awards given out that night are the best table award and the Rimmer’s Fred Diekmann Humanitarian Award. The post party will be held at Torpedo’s.

Movie Under the Stars
Winterparty and MGLFF present Movie Under the Stars featuring a favorite from the 7th annual MGLFF (Guys and Balls) on Wednesday, March 1st at 8:00PM at the Surfcomber Hotel (1717 Collins Avenue). If “misfit gay sports comedies” can be called a whole new genre of film, then Guys and Balls takes that genre to a whole new level of hilarity. It’s got a double-entendre title (this is a soccer flick), lots of goofy sports stunts and revealing locker room scenes, a cute lovelorn hero, and a team full of every possible wacky homo - from studly nurse and femmy Turk to a horny leather-bear threesome. Throughout, the humor lurches in fresh new directions, with laugh-out-loud sight gags and a wry send-up of silly sports machismo. In a rural German town where soccer is everything, Ecki’s the champion goalie who just lost the game. As if that’s not bad enough, the other players discover he’s gay and banish him from the team. Vowing revenge, Ecki sets off to a nearby city to start his own all-gay squad and challenge the homophobic heteros. It’s an uphill battle, taking wide-eyed Ecki from a hospital delivery room (enter studly nurse) to the slings of an S/M sex-club (enter leather-bears). Meanwhile, back at home, Ecki’s weary parents endure homophobic gossip and a nonstop barrage of anal-sex jokes from a cranky old man. If Ecki’s team can ever get their game together and take on the hometown squad, we’re in for a raucous culture clash. Guys and Balls never takes its' coming-out tale too seriously, thank goodness and it keeps the romance light and sexy. After all, it’s only a game! (In German with English Subtitles) Ticket Prices are $15 in advance (at WinterParty.com) and $20 at the Door.
