Monday night at The Cutting Room was the highly anticipated concert to benefit GLSEN staged by my pal Wayne Laako and featuring some of the cast of FX's just-renewed series Pose.

Thrown together quickly for a good cause, it was a total smash, a seamless event packed with fans and filled with great performances and affirmations.

Dyllón Burnside, Ricky on the show, was the emcee and main performer, and let me tell you Pose-finale watchers: Al B. Sure is no longer the #1 panty-dropper on the scene. Cute and confident, he sang his heart out eand commanded the night with his personal coming-out story and by introducing his “father,” history-making Vibe co-founding EIC Emil Wilbekin. Together, they spoke about the importance of safe spaces for LGBTQ people. The concept of a safe space is often ridiculed, parodied to mean that those who seek it expect to live life in a cocoon. In reality, it's about allowing marginalized people a shot to live their lives, not free from stress and struggle and hard work and emotional ups and downs, but free from targeted abuse and intolerance and hate.

One step forward, two steps back for EW.

Great Pose cover, which correctly hones in on what the show does right (“heartfelt”), but did you see the embarrassingly gushy sory they posted online about the A Star Is Born trailer?

Last night, FX threw a hybrid drag ball/premiere party for tonights debut of the series Pose.

The show, set in the '80s, focuses on the community for whom vogueing was a way of life and not just something you do at weddings every once in a while.

The event was packed, leaving many luminaries stuck on line outside. I was lucky enough to get in, so I shot all the shameless hotties, queens without subjects, living legends, and Pose cast members in my way.
