Had a lot of fun at the Hookies, held at The Out. No time to go into insane detail, but made time to post insane amounts of photos, including lots of hot-as-hell hustlers and quite a few real characters.
Rentboy always puts on a good event.
Logan Moore was my fave, and it was nice running into Duncan Black, who's rocking longer hair.
Enjoy! Check out dozens of photos below and dozens in the gallery...
Chi Chi LaRue talks to Billboard about working with RuPaul, DJing and which pornstars look like popstars.
I'm a big fan of Rebel Heart, but won't post a review; I'll include it in my book, Encyclopedia Madonnica. I'm close to having a first draft of the manuscript, then will proof it, key in photos, have it designed and then finally printed. I had projected April, but it's looking more like summer—sorry, this was draining and I'm also co-writing a Web series (!!!) and will in August or September publish a humorous memoir.
Had a gay old time at RuPaul's Drag Race Battle of the Seasons tour—a variety show featuring some of the fave queens from the series doing solo schtick, singing and participating in comedy orgies—last night at Irving Plaza, meaning I was one of the gayest and oldest people there. Who knew the fans of the show are so female and so young?
I have to say that World of Wonder continues to only be associated with well conceived, well written, funny and value-packed events. This shit went on for almost three hours!
I got to attend the VIP meet-and-greet, which was a hoot. On display were BenDeLaCreme, Pandora Boxx, Jiggly Calient, Darienne Lake, Jinkx Monsoon, Alaska Thunderfuck, Michelle Visage and Ivy Winters. (Through no fault of her own, Needles barely made it to the event at all, so couldn't do the VIP part.)
In the VIP area, I snapped every drag queen in my sight, including Visage, that great female drag queen. I'm a longtime fan of Seduction and she is a longtime fan of Madonna, so that made for a potent encounter for me. She kindly gave me a quote-let for my Madonna book and posed, though she initially threw her hand in front of my camera when I asked for a solo shot. She wanted to know what it was for, then said she'd only pose with me, not for me. That's a sneaky way to make sure photographers can't sell your headshot to agencies. The bitch is experienced. She looked great, as did her boobs, which, like her reputation, precede her.
All the girls were great. Chatted briefly with Monsoon about the death of Albert Maysles, in light of her upcoming Return to Gray Gardens show (ENTER HERE FOR TICKETS).
Boxx seemed kinda over it all (but was unfailingly nice to fans), an impression that was borne out once she hit the stage.
Keep reading, because this event had enough shade to cool off the Gobi...
Jinkx Monsoon, Peaches Christ and Mink Stole are bringing Return to Gray Gardens to NYC! The show is playing one night only, April 25, 2015, at 7PM at Mason Hall/Baruch Performing Arts Center (17 Lexington Ave. @ 23rd St.).
Here's your chance to win a pair of tickets to the show!
Just comment this post with your favorite drag performer of all time. A week from tonight at 5PM ET, I'll pick 1 of you at random to win. Good luck! (Tickets only, no transportation provided.)
More info on the show here:
Madonna is Rolling Stone's cover girl for the zillionth time; out tomorrow. Also tomorrow: Watch the Brits live here around (I think) 2PM ET.
Madonna will perform selections from Victor/Victoria. Take that, Gaga!
No, actually, she is supposedly getting a lifetime achievement honor and performing at least two tracks. Reviews of Rebel Heart are very positive; so far, it seems IN to say Madonna has put out her best since Ray of Light. Check Telegraph (gotta love a 4/5-stars review that raves it's her “least desperate” album in a while), The Sun and Attitude.
Also, The Advocate has published a piece arguing on Madonna's behalf.
Keep reading for a rather amazing homage to “Vogue”...
