Miss Richfield 1981 :: Smiling through the End Times

"As long as it's growing as a career, as long as I can continue growing, I'll keep going," was once the statement made by Russ King of his nationally treasured creation Miss Richfield 1981. You notice that King used "as long" and not "if," because at this juncture of his career, it appears as if Miss Richfield shows no signs of slowing down.

No longer just an North American treasure performing before packed houses across the country including very successful annual runs in Provincetown, Miss Richfield 1981 has been a drag ambassador of sorts to the many Mexican ports, courtesy of Atlantis Cruise Lines, among other offshore locations.

Always one to show us her Midwestern charm in an oh-so campy way, Miss Richfield 1981 is never too shy to simply speak about the things we think about (but rarely express) through speech, or giving the candid advice we so much don't want to admit we need. She's sassy, but always with a smile! With her current show "2012: We'll All Be Dead by Christmas" comes to San Francisco on October 27, 2012 as a fundraiser for the very liberal parish of the St. Aidan's Episcopal Church to support their many ministries including LGBT-related causes, Miss Richfield 1981 reminds us of the prophecy of our supposed doomsday before the end of the year, but yet again, she does it with a smile.

Based out of San Francisco, BEBE SWEETBRIAR is the Omni Present Drag Chanteuse. As an entertainer and hostess, BeBe can be scene every week hosting and performing at countless events and parties in the San Francisco. One of the few drag personalities to sing live while performing, BeBe has literally graced every notable stage in San Francisco, bridging many gay sub-community gaps. She has also been the opening act for Destiny’s Child Kelly Rowland, "Ugly Betty’s" Alec Mapa and Dance Diva Kristine W. Adding recording artist to her list of performance accomplishments in 2008 with the release of her first single "Save Me", Ms. Sweetbriar will soon release her fifth dance single in 2012 called "Show It Off"..
As an actress, BeBe was introduced to film with a lead role in the independent film "Under One Sun" with her character dealing with religious, racial and gender issues. Additionally, she appeared in the campy musical "Devious, Inc" (Australian Film Festival, San Francisco Short Film Fest) also adding additional vocals to the musical soundtrack. Both of these performances led to her selection for a lead role in Aisha Media’s next short film series, "Con-tin.u.um" to be released in 2012.
