Beaver Queen Pageant - Meet your contestants

Sixth in a series

First off, a shout out to all the new visitors to DE from Dykes to Watch Out For.

Welcome. i'm glad you found this place. The commenter who noted that there was nothing silly about the lacrosse case is absolutely correct. Which is one of the reasons we strive to inject a bit of silliness into our otherwise decidedly un-silly existence. The story behind DE can be found here. If you're anywhere near Durham, NC, this weekend, i hope you can make it to our pageant to indulge in a fair bit of beaver silliness.

Now, let's meet our sixth and final contestant.

Be Vell (La Bouche) BeVon may be our only contestant who flits back and forth with ease between crepes suzette and crape myrtle, but let's hear what she has to say about herself in her own words:
Mesdames, Monsieurs, on vous presente la fabuleuse Be Vell “La Bouche” Bevon. All the rage from the Cote d’ Azur to the Red Neck Riviera , she comes to this event courtesy of an amnesty agreement between the U. S. government and the French Canadian provinces. She has danced and sung her way across two continents, dazzling on lookers from the side walks of gay Paris to the gravel back roads of the Yukon . A misadventure in Homer, Alaska is a story for another time. Clearly, entertainment is in her bones. Her grandmother, the astounding Madam Bonbeavaire, performed several seasons with Josephine Baker.

Be Vell is the daughter of the celebrated couturiere, Peau de Soie Bevon, who was fashion consultant to Brigitte Bardot. It is also worth noting that her father was an engineer who immigrated to Canada to build dams. Talent AND brains . . . Brains AND Talent . . . Bienvenue Be Vell!

That wraps up our presentation of this year's contestants for the Beaver Queen crown. We'll recap them quickly tomorrow, and hopefully finish up our presentation of our celebrity judges as well.

We'll also put the video from the 2005 Pageant back up on the blog, and we're just about finished with the slide show of June Cleaver Beaver's busy year since she was crowned Beaver Queen in June 2006.

Stay tuned, and we hope to see you all out in the Duke Park Meadow on Saturday night, June 2.



  • Speaking Of Josephine Baker, there is a new and exciting group on Yahoo called The Judy Garland Experience. The group features an amazing and ever changing selection of audio files. This week we are featuring Judy In Concert at The Back Bay Theater in 1968, Selections from Judy's 1950's radio work and television specials, songs and conversations from her aborted role in Valley Of The Dolls, and many other odds and ends (including highlights from a 1973 NY performance by Josephine Baker. "Why" you ask? You will just have to join and find out). The group also features lively discussions, rare photo's, thought provoking polls, and more!
    The group's membership has an amazing assortment of people, including Garland family members, other people who knew Judy, people who saw Judy perform, author's, historian's, people who have made movies about Judy, plus fans of every level. The only thing missing is you. Please stop by our little Judyville and check it out. You may never want to leave!
