Pick up the camera. Throw on the Tutu and a little Weird headgear and head out…Destination? The 32nd Annual Headdress Ball – Animelistic Head Trip.
This is billed as the ‘The premiere gay event of Fantasy Fest.” It is an annual fundraiser for the KW Business Guild, one of the oldest Gay and Lesbian Chambers of Commerce. And in Key West, we also celebrate our one Human Family. The brainchild and awareness campaign envisioned by the amazing JT Thompsom – local artist and visionary. His “One Human Family” bumper stickers have touched thousands and thousands and thousands and thousands of people worldwide — JT has printed and given out over 1 million stickers.

Weird. Weird is good. Weird comes in all shapes, sizes, colors and means of expression. And in Key West, October’s Fantasy Fest™ week has become the Weirdest, most expressive week of them all. It’s the Motherload of Weird.
From Zombie Bike Rides to 6 foot Pirates on Duval St. to Super Heroes wearing TuTus, to way-out body painting, it’s sometimes sexy, sometimes kinky or funny. The TuTu has become the standard accessory choice of many…I don’t do the double-take anymore when I see a 6’5” man wearing a TuTu…actually I don’t blink at much anymore. I embrace, smile, chuckle, sometimes cringe and then share. Join me, in the Spirit of the Key West Juggler, in sharing some Wonderful Key West Weirdness.
Keep Calm and Stay Weird. Stay Weird and Go Pro.
You are so not in Kansas anymore, Dorothy.
Cheers & Enjoy Fantasy Festivities,
