The B-Girlz, the fabulously coiffed and coutured drag trio, show every indication of crossing over from Church Street to Main Street. It's hard to turn on a cable show these days without seeing the ultra-colourful Barbie-Q, Conchita and Hard Kora. On April 28 (7 pm), they're the subjects -- very "Madonna's Truth Or Dare," I'm told -- of Mass Appeal, a new show on Bravo that looks at pop culture trends. They also have a stalker-friendly Web site at www.b-girlz.com. They'll be everywhere come Pride Week. But in the meantime, you can check out a new bit from their live act at the ALT.COMedy Lounge Monday (April 16). As the girls might say, B-There or B-Square.
