Lynda Kay to Headline Trevor Project Gala in Palm Springs

In Dallas, Texas, one thing is common knowledge: “The higher the hair, the closer to god,” and Lynda Kay tries her hardest to prove that old adage true. Her fabulous bouffant and enrapturing four-octave vocal range return to Palm Springs to take part in Night Out for Trevor, a fundraiser for the LGBT community’s life-saving mission to prevent suicide, The Trevor Project. The elegant songstress—known as much for her elegant, vintage style as her sultry voice—took a moment to dish with Frontiers about the upcoming performance. 

FRONTIERS: How did you first get involved with The Trevor Project?

LYNDA KAY: I met Chaz Stevens, the Chairman of the Event, when I was performing in Hollywood, where he approached me about the Palm Springs Trevor event. I wanted to learn more about the organization, so Chaz took me to meet [Trevor Project CEO] Abbe Land, and she gave me a tour of the offices and I met the volunteers. I was so deeply moved by their mission, I proudly accepted the invitation to perform.

F: What are you most looking forward to with this performance?

LK: I’m really excited about connecting with new people and seeing dear friends while performing under the stars at the Escena Golf Resort. I’ve never performed with my entire seven-piece band in this type of setting, so I just hope the desert wind cooperates. But I’m prepared with my traveling hairdresser, many wardrobe changes and plenty of cocktails to keep me from being dry!

F: Why do you feel your act resonates so strongly with gay audiences?

LK: Gay men and women really seem to appreciate the type of music I perform, which you rarely hear live anymore. My friend Bruce Vilanch says it best: “If you were wondering if they’d ever make a fabulous, sexy, powerful, funny and lusciously talented chick singer that grownups could love, stop wondering. She’s here.” And is there a gay person out there who doesn’t appreciate drag? I mean, honey, I was born and raised in Dallas, Texas, where big hair, sparkles and beads are what we put on to go to the supermarket!

F: What’s the best advice you can give to any girl who wants to bouffant their own hair?

LK: Well, I’m preaching to the choir, but here goes: Aqua Net Extra Super Hold or L’Oreal Elnett for a softer hold, and tease it up ‘til you can’t get it any bigger, because we all need a lot of humor in our lives!

    Where the movie is lacking is in the replica chanel emotional components that make most recent animated blockbusters really work. Particularly troubling is Toby’s death scene. Obviously there’s a need to avoid rendering the violence louis vuitton replica in a graphic manner, but Dr. Tenma’s dior replica reaction to it is so understated as to be undetectable. It calls to mind (and suffers by comparison to) the early scenes of Finding Nemo, where Marlon is helpless to stop the attack on his family and chanel replica is left cradling the last egg that protects his unborn son.
