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...

Tard Nation: A Review Of HOUSE OF TARDS Comments (0)

ImageDavid Ilku, Mike Albo & Nora Burns: Unitard

House of Tards is the second biggest riot the Stonewall Inn has ever seen.

The revue, by three-person comedy team Unitard, is a series of sketches that do what Second City and SNL have always done, but haven't done well in decades. That's why the show feels classic and brand-new at the same time.

Made up of Mike Albo (who generously flashed scrotum and bare ass the night I saw it for no reason except thank you), Nora Burns and David Ilku, the performers do pieces solo and together. They don't go there, they start there.

Then...they go there.

The show's best bits are painfully funny routines about NYC's dying downtown scene (Debbie Harry, who opens at the Carlyle shortly, was in the front row) and the phenomenon of grief tourists on Facebook who suddenly become a famous person's biggest fan once they're dead. That's Unitard's forte, identifying social trends and deciding, with humor, what they mean.

Unitard has fangs, but everybody has fangs these days. The difference is that Unitard has the brains to know how and when and if to use the fangs, and also the heart to try stuff that is definitely going to rub some people the wrong way.

Precious little of House of Tards fails to amuse (a terrorist stand-up act was both brilliant and gross, but was ultimately too distractingly interesting).

There is no MVP here; all of the performers shine equally, making them one of the best threesomes you'll ever watch outside of your computer.

House of Tards plays through April 9 at the Stonewall Inn.

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?

IMG_2755

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!

IMG_2768Going nuclear for Winters

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.)

VIsageBreast/man

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.

IMG_2828It takes 2, it takes 2...there's you and you!

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.

IMG_2779It said NO SMOKING, but Alaska was anyway.

IMG_2789Jiggly was the gold standard.

IMG_2795Monsooner or later, she always gets her man (and woman).

Keep reading, because this event had enough shade to cool off the Gobi...

Mark My Words Comments (0)

Artistpage_MarkMacKilop

When I first met Mark MacKillop, he was just a cute dude in a skimpy swim suit. Then he was a dancer, traveling internationally in the company of West Side Story. Then he was a self-portraitist. And now he is a singer, making his 54 Below debut.

Of course, he was always all of those things at once, but unlike some people, he's really getting a shot at showing off his many talents. Check him out—I'm sure his performance is going to be something special, like he is.
