Rich Man, Lepore Man Comments (0)

Amanda-LeporeThis old thing? (P.S. I'm not holding the purse.)

Thanks to Gregory Pace, I finally got my picture taken with New York institution Amanda Lepore. We were at the CockyBoys (Work Unfriendly) holiday bash, where I also finally got to meet CockyBoys founder Jake Jaxson, Davyd Dixon (porn PR extraordinaire) and Zachary Sire (Str8 Up Gay Porn), and see Erik Schut (TLA).

Tayte-HansonA very important Tayte

As an added bonus, I had a great talk with Tayte Hanson, who just debuted new, shorter hair (but who is more substantive than that comment implies). Others on hand included Diesel Washington, Liam Riley, Levi Karter and Helix model (for now?) Ryker Madison...but I'm quite sure there were many more.

Last night was the fourth annual Cyndi Lauper & Friends Home for the Holidays concert to benefit her True Colors Fund. The lineup was so eclectic as to almost be off-putting; we're so used to compartmentalized music it seemed jarring to consider hearing Cyndi, Metric, Sufjan Stevens, 50 Cent, Nataline Maines and Salt-N-Pepa all on one bill.

But the diversity of artists led to a long, fun, interesting show, one spiked with equal parts good cheer and defiance.

Cyndi-Lauper

Emcees Rosie O'Donnell and Laverne Cox were a curious yin and yang, with O'Donnell condemning Woody Allen and Bill Cosby while Cox preferred “happy thoughts” and red-carpet posing.

RosieOf her fellow comic, O'Donnell said:

“Twenty-three women in their seventies just woke up and thought, 'What should I do today? Go to Target, or fuck up Bill Cosby's life?' I say he's guilty, and it's sad because it's like a death: We lost Joan, we lost Robin, and we lost Bill Cosby. That's what it feels like to me.”

The crowd approved. But there was a mixed response when she invoked the Hands Up, Don't Shoot! and I Can't Breathe populist outrage that protesters not far away were expressing—some boos, some oohs, some cheers. O'Donnell was perplexed.

Death Becomes Him Comments (0)

Jennifer

Luckily, this doesn't matter to the person in question because she is no longer here to suffer the indignity, but here's a case where blood being thicker than water is a real tragedy: A transgender woman who died unexpectedly of an aneurysm was buried by her family as a man, including having her hair cut and wearing men's clothing at an open-casket wake. Assholes.
