Lillettes Reform for Charity


A popular Manchester drag duo from the Noughties is reforming for a charity show in Brighton. Dolly Tub and Bella LaGoosie last performed together in 2010, before Dolly left Manchester to move to Brighton.

And who is this Dolly Tub, I hear you ask? Well most of you will know him as Philip, the manager of Nice ‘n’ Naughty on St James Street, where he has been behind the counter for nearly 5 years, and only letting Dolly escape at Pride weekends.

Why now? Philip explains: “I have been thinking about letting Dolly loose on the Brighton public for some time, and having chatted with my drag partner a few months ago, we decided to reform and have a night of fun. The last time we performed together was for a charity night in Manchester, organised by the Nice ‘n’ Naughty team up north, so it’s great to have the support of Nice ‘n’ Naughty for this one too, and giving support to a local charity in the process”

The show, which lasts about 1 hour, consisting of some classic drag divas, promises to be fun. If you ever experienced the Lillettes when they were regulars at The Hollywood Showbar and Via in Manchester, will know that you will be experiencing old school drag, with Lip Syncing at its best! Philip explains, “we both love performing, and for us it is all about making the audience smile, and having a little giggle at ourselves in the process! Along with the show, we will be having a raffle to raise more funds and as it’s my Birthday, a few drinks afterwards.”


Proving blondes have more fun

The charity that the girls have chosen is the locally based Martlets Hospice, which plays a vital role in helping people to live life as fully as they can, right up until the end. Through expert clinical care provided by highly skilled and experienced doctors and nurses, they ensure that wherever possible peace, respect and dignity is retained – it is a very simple and very human ethos.

The event will be held at Latest Music Bar, on Manchester Street, on the 18th February 2016, with doors at 8pm and the show at 8:30, and all proceeds from the door and raffle going to charity.

I honestly couldn’t be happier to see both my store and the company recognised” Michelle admitted as she placed her awards in pride of place in the store.

Nice ‘n’ Naughty honours friend at Chester Pride

Hailed as its biggest and best yet, Chester Pride was a roaring success this year for all involved. However for some it was more than an excuse to wear some bright colours, have a giggle with friends or see who can drink the most beer in a seven hour period. For Nice ‘n’ Naughty Director Simon Prescott it was a way to honour a close friend who sadly passed away this year.

Michael Britain, aka Hank, had always been a very ardent supporter of Pride and when he passed away Nice ‘n’ Naughty wanted to make sure that he was remembered so set out with the full backing of the company director Simon Prescott and help from local businesses the Golden Eagle,  Duttons,  Bar Lounge, Liquor & Co. Kings Head and Coach House to ensure that Hanks memory was honoured.

Setting up in local bar The Golden Eagle, Chester Store Manager Victoria Gower and fellow member of staff Karen Hewitt set up a table full of rainbow goodies and joined forces with long-time friend of the company Ken Pleavin. After arming Ken with book of raffle tickets, and themselves with a list of weights for a fun version of “Guess The Weight” the group held fun demonstrations for couples with electro sex toys on the willing crowds and drew giggles and gasps when they revealed the actual weight of the toy. (To give you a clue – his first name was SUPER!)

The raffle with its wide selection of prizes ranging from wine and store vouchers,electro-sex kits kindly donated by our suppliers and a £210 male toy. With such an eclectic range of prizes the raffle raised a whopping £150 towards Pride with the goal being to keep the event free. Despite raising a lot of laughs and a large amount of money Victoria felt that she could have done more and was ecstatic when Simon, who was touched by the amount of effort Victoria and friends had put in  informed her that Nice ‘n’ Naughty would increase the money raised, bringing the grand total to £400.

The proud fundraisers with the cheque for £400 Carl Jackson AKA Betty Sparkle Entertainment Coordinator, Rebecca Chesters Sponsorship coordinator, David Ewart-Jones Concessions coordinator, Ken Pleavin Organiser of Golden Eagle event, Trish Murray Nice ‘n’n Naughty, Steph DJ and Night dance gospel singer.

Vicky is already counting the days until next year’s Pride and has promised us that she’s got a lot more tricks up her sleeve.

Nice ‘n’ Naughty is honoured again to be supporting The Golden Eagle on Saturday 19th December for a “Kinky Christmas” party with fantastic entertainment again from Dj Steph and Disco/Dance Vocalist Night.

Welcome our new guest blogger

The Nice ‘n’ Naughty blog has the great honour of introducing Debbie; our new guest blogger. Debbie will be giving us an insight into her life as a cross dresser in her special blog posts.

In her first post Debbie tells us about her life so far and shares her feelings on aspects of cross dressing and society’s perspective.

Please read, enjoy and comment.




This is my story, and mine alone. How I arrived at where I am, which, incidentally, is a state of huge contentment and satisfaction, is a route partly decided by myself and partly dictated by fate. It is not necessarily a ‘route map’ for others to follow. So, and with that important disclaimer clearly stated, let me start by telling you where I am.

My name is Debbie Smith, and I am hardly in the first flush of youth (70 approaches with a frightening speed) but, and very happily for me, neither feel, nor conduct myself as most of such advanced years would normally do, but in that respect I recognise I have been fortunate health-wise. I live mostly, but by no means all the time, as a woman. For those who set such standards I might be classed as 24/6 rather than 24/7.  For all my confidence I retain also a realisation that there are some lingering areas of my former life where Debbie would be an inappropriate presence. This is not in any way to betray my adopted life-style and I must confess, by way of a footnote, to being extraordinarily irritated by those who suggest that I am not being honest with myself. There are no such rules for those who share this community.  We can only be guided by our own feelings and judgements,  that is of course how we find ourselves in our various current situations anyway.

I live in splendid isolation in the north of England and have done so for some 7 years now following my divorce after a 36-year long marriage. I have no plans to embark on any form of long-term relationship and I am committed to living out my life without the undoubted benefits of such an association. This is not to suggest that I am in any way lonely or isolated: I am neither, and enjoy a circle of dear friends with whom I can share so much. As for other matters, I am not on hormones and would not at my age consider surgery; were I younger my view might different. But this troubles me not and I remain happy (an understatement by the way) with my situation.

So, when did it all begin? The point is peculiarly clear in my mind, and has never left me. I was 9 and in my final year at infant school. I had always enjoyed reading and was, not to sound precocious (because I wasn’t), working through a book about Hercules and his labours and atonements for his various misdemeanours. Apart from his twelve labours he had also serve as a maid, dressed in women’s clothes, for a year to one of the goddesses. Now at such a tender age one is not aware of sexual feelings or emotions – at least I wasn’t – but this struck me like a thunderbolt and although I did not know why (actually I still don’t over 60 years later!) could not get it out of my mind, or rid myself of the strange but lovely feeling that overtook me at that moment. I remained haunted by that image for years following, right through puberty and beyond.

Of course at 9 one does not know how to respond to such tumultuous feelings and it was another year or so before I experimented in ‘dressing’.  Having no sisters, it was inevitably my mother’s wardrobe that attracted my attention. Fortunately my mother worked so I could sneak home at lunch time from school and try her things on. I shudder to think how I must have looked, but it met an important need for me and, interestingly, one that never caused me any sense of guilt or anxiety; a happy state of affairs that persists.

The following years can be dealt with briefly and were, in retrospect, less satisfactory. As a university student living away from home, I had opportunities that had been previously denied me, and I took such advantages of the situation as I could. It was however, in that pre World-wide Web age, a solitary existence. I was sure I was not the only person who felt as I did, but had no means of making contact with others. After leaving university I then got married to a girl I met as a student, and embarked on a period of self-imposed quiescence in terms of dressing.  Occasional and snatched forays into my wife’s wardrobe were so unsatisfying that I all but buried my desires, needs, ambitions – call them what you will – and occupied myself in what I thought was living. But our capacity for self-delusion knows no bounds, as I realised following my divorce. At the time I thought, if indeed I reflected upon it all, that the breakdown of my marriage had nothing to do with my suppressed ambitions. It is only, looking back over a few years that I recognise that it probably had a great deal to do with it. Psychologists often suggest that most of our decisions are based on sub-conscious activities of which we recognise so little: I would not, in the light of my own retrospective view, refute that argument. I now see that there was a turmoil in my heart that I refused to express or even acknowledge. I had anaethestised myself to all such deeper feelings.

Following my divorce I found myself with the opportunity of exploring my need to dress. I embarked upon this, what turned out to an adventure, with little suspicion of where it would lead me. Indeed, following such a long period of inactivity I had only limited ambitions and fewer expectations. But it was an already open emotional door that needed only to be pushed; and pushed it was to lead me into what I can only describe as a ‘garden of lights’. Now let me be clear, I refer not to sexual delights, but to intensely personal and wondrously fulfilling emotions of a different nature. Unfettered any longer by the social conventions of marriage and ‘normal’ behaviour (will someone tell me exactly what that is?) I found myself; and I mean that quite literally.

As time passed and my skills in dressing, making up and generally conducting myself on my new feminine role I realised that this was no imagined passion, no fanciful or ultimately ill-founded or self-deluding fantasy: this really was me! I can express it no more simply nor honestly. I had always, since that first awakening of my needs so many years ago, been dimly aware, though hardly recognised, that I had a strong feminine side to my nature, and now it could flower into something of genuine – dare I say it? – beauty, but beautiful in the sense of it being something to celebrate and no longer bury, shy away from or ignore.

In this respect I fully recognise the huge good fortune I enjoy.  It has been, I do not deny, a long and sometimes painful journey to reach where I am today, but I am lucky that opportunity has granted me this accomplishment. For so many it is not so. But why, I have to ask myself, did I not realise sooner my true self? In my view, for what it’s worth, we are all, in part at least, products of the societies in which we live and are brought up. We absorb, like it or not, realise it or not, the values, conventions, hopes, fears, and anxieties of our social environment, from our families, schools, media and everyday experiences. Hence, I got married when I should not have done. I did it because it was expected of me. I neglected my feminine side because it was not, especially in my youth of 50s and 60s, in any way acceptable. I assumed a persona that was not mine, but was what was expected of me. So many do that, and so many must lead lives of unrealised frustration and stress; and I hope I do not sound condescending when I write that. I recall the oft-quoted line from the feminist philosopher Simone de Beauvoir that women are not born but made [by society]. How right she was, but it applies also, to some extent, to men. In this respect, despite the ills that beset western Europe in the early 21st century, we must all embrace the degree to which alternative life styles and views are not only tolerated but also welcomed., at least in some quarters. The deeper question of why I am as I am takes us into the murkier waters of Freudian psychology, and I have no need to go there. I accept and celebrate my true being, and need no more.

So, where do I see myself fitting into this new social order? In so many respects I find myself very well-grounded in my society. I have a degree of self-belief and confidence – but not arrogance I hasten to add – that I have never enjoyed previously. This has brought out the best of characteristics in me, and Debbie is a more thoughtful, sociable, charitable and tolerant person than her male counter-part ever was. On the other hand I never allow my confidence to overtake my better judgements. When out as Debs most certainly I want always to look smart and presentable and never OTT, and I do not set out to shock or offend. I recognise however that my very being will unavoidably offend some people, but I cannot legislate for that and it is, as they say, collateral damage. In some respects, and forgive the seeming arrogance, I feel myself to be a woman on a mission, and my mission is to demonstrate that my chosen life-style is neither threatening nor dangerous, neither does it unravel the fabric of society; merely add a thread of another colour and lustre.

Whilst I realise that prejudice yet exists, I have to say that the response I get to my public being is heart-warmingly lovely; odd furtive condemnatory glances or sniggers I can deal with. Everyone from restaurant staff to security officers at the airport treat me with respect and curious, but polite, interest. I’ve had some quite charming conversations with various people that gives me real hope for our futures. I am only too well aware that I do not pass close inspection, but I do my best, and I’m proud of what I do and of my modest achievements. I’ve even had complete strangers stop me in the street and compliment on my dress. In some respects my life has become something a ‘road movie’; I go through it with a series of delightful and unpredictable encounters and experiences. My neighbours all know about me and could not be more accommodating, some insisting on going out with Debs for dinner, cinema, inviting me in for tea etc. My new life has, in happy conclusion, restored my faith in human-kind and there can be no better confirmation that I have made, either by design or by default, the right decision and to live as I do.
