Finally it's Happening , the Rainbow Awards. in a few weeks Amsterdam will have it's first LGBT award show. To me it was always a problem to hear and see only bad press about the lgbt community.bars and clubs that were closing, the beating of gays for no reason other than discrimination and i think we still have a long wat to go if it concerns emancipation. But there are also a huge amount of people , company's or foundations that do good work, that have a divercity policy at the work floor or people who create space to have a conversation about all that's needed in the lgbt community.
I for one was thinking about this for a few years and finally had the time to create a night where we give a spotlight to those who helps out in anyway.. not just entertainment but also deeper than that.
go to rainbowawards.nl and seefor yourself but vote for the one you think should win an award.
Just because you al have to wait so long... here are some recent pics.. x Mayday

Hi Babes, Even though im still working on my new website it was time for an update anyway.

The Rupaul season 6 winner was nothing but mean and nice. I had a blast and we worked in a visit to the Anne Frank house. We were all in tears thinking of it.
we had a great day and i had her on the back of my bike.
We even did a round trip on a canal boat and had dinner at Peter's House.
All and all a great time with the queen for a year.
Next week Sharon Doorson , Rachel Kramer, Soulm3n and ULTRA nate is performing at MILKSHAKE festival. tickets are almost sold out and im sure its going to be a blast again.
So hope to see you allout there.. ;) xx Mayday

Divamayday Mail : Just an update
Heey Boys and girls, Hope all is well at your end of the line. Its been a crazy month , there hasen't been an night that i haven't been out.
night after night there was something to do and like the party animal i am i just go with the flow and did it all. had some great nights but also some dissapointing ones. People tend to let you down every now and then and that sucks to be blunt. Now i like to think myself as a wise person and for sure i got wiser through the years and even though im still 21. i had my share. This songs by my dear friend Kathy Brown reminds me always. Stronger on my own.
I wanted to share this vintage picture with you.. granted its a new picture but the look is vintage. What do you think?
It is shot by Wouter van Gens and Alessandro Pisano and was supposed to be for Weekend fest.
Divamayday Mail : Fashion week
HI Babes, It's been again a few weeks that i didnt post a thing however.. im happy to tell you im working on a brand new site with lots of new cool features and pics, video's and a give away section. So stay tuned for that.
Last night was the opening of fashion week and the first show held was by Mattijs van Bergen. I really love Mattijs and his designs but didnt like this collection so much. It was inspired on Van gogn and maybe because of that i thought Hmmm. It was good to see how he eeolves into a fierce young designer with great taste and art.
The next show was by Aziz a friend who i know for a very long time His show was amazing more in the way it was set ans styled and the statement behind his show.. I loved It.
Ofcourse there were alot of dutch celebs and nice people but it didnt bother me enough to stay very long so i went into town.. Something i do since the last day of the last year ;) Party hard and play hard

I know that it could have been fixed sooner than half a year ago but to tell you the truth, being bussier than ever in this past year i just didnt had the time to even think about it. And there was always facebook. ;) Tonight i celebrate and close this year with a bang. For the 4th time in a row i organise the best new years eve party in Amsterdam. CAN YOU FEEL iT?

Divamayday Mail : Beyonce
First of all to get you in the summer mood check out this amazing song by Daft punk nile rodgers and Pharrell williams, Get Lucky. Its from now on my fav song.
Last week was fun again.. Last night i worked the door at dvars, the old Eve /ARC at reguliersdwars. Once a month i host a party called the poppenkraam. A friday after work cocktail party with bites and booming girls and music by Risk sound systhem.
It was fun and fab and i got a bit tipsy on the fab cocktails they serve. In the morning after a night of spinning the finest tunes at Soho i had to go to Utrecht for Holiday on ice to get some new clothes for Milkshake.. Ps have you got your tickets allready? www.milkshakefestival.nl
At soho i got a great surprise.. Martijn and roger who came back from Holiday got me a new and amazing RING and i write in capitals since its HUUGEEE. Dont you love iT? Im just a spoiled little girl.
Also the Taboo posse stopped by, Taboo is the bar across the street from Soho. i love that place and i spinned there aswell on occasion. It was the only bar open when ALL was closed at the famous gay street. Brandon who used to be the manager from Exit that got closed after owner died, openend his own bar taboo and its been booming ever since the opening. However.. i made a joke when putting up this picture we took up on facebook. I tagged everybody and said: Must be a lady G ( i can't write her full name on here since im afraid for a virus on my computer) night at taboo : Meaning: al staff was at my party... However i knew it wasnt her night and she does her night on a wednesday NOT on a thurseday.. it was a joke.. but they didnt seem to like it much ;) I thought it was a hoot. Even though i dont like her much.. i hope she has a great night at Taboo because thats just good for business. for everybody.
Anyway.. tomorrow its Beyonce time at Ziggodome and im really excited to go. Met her once at her perfume presentation and once in marcanti but just a quick hello goodbye. hope she rocks the show instead of the superbowl.. that was lame. Ok kids enjoy the weekend.. its sunny ( for a change) x Mayday
Divamayday Mail : Crazy in love
I ain't lying that i hardly have time to write here... It takes a while to sort out pictures after i first remembered what i had been doing the past week and such. Then get all organised. crop and pollish pics. upload them one at the time and then write you a nice story... And the truth is..Since i got rid of my guestbook I have no idea what people read or want to see, next to that , facebook and twitter is the fastest way to get you updated. However i do think of all of you and there are poeple that still email me that i have to update my site so Here it is.. Some pics of what i had been doing lately.
To help out Hotspot cafe after Miss decited to end her bingo so suddandly,i organise a bingo once a month. every first wednesday . I love doing the bingo but like to play myself even more. i just like the excitement of maybe or maybe not winning something i dont need ;)
However last bingo was a blast and need to thank Martijn van Daalen Stefanie winter from Skincare by stefanie winter who were so generous with some amazing prizes.
My Mum won a bleeching treatment and she was happy with iT.
On thurseday i spin at Soho. Every thurseday so you know ;)
Ferry Doedens is a regular and always stoppes by to have a bit fun.
On easter i channeled my innner ghetto gurl to spin at marcel's farewell party DOnder op... which was fuunnn.
My little nephew had to get his a diploma and ofcourse we all coem down for some support. it was actually a hysterical day because Jonas his bigger brother was funny as hell..
and this saturday i had to spin at a private party in vinkeveen which was also fun.. Always good to see some of my long time friends...
here you go. hope i put a smile on your face again.x Mayday
