On Day 2 of RuPaul's DragCon NYC, I met up with Angus Malcolm, the creator IMG_7682*****_newand photographer of the Warwick Rowers annual nude calendar, and two of his hottest-ever models — Lucas Etienne and Ryan Fraser.

The guys were on hand to promote their 2019 edition of the calendar (which has the University of Warwick's Boat Club, as usual, and includes 2017 World Rowing Cup champ Robbie Mason) — which happens to be the tenth-anniversary edition.

The group's latest Crowdfunder is up and running, and their limited book is available as well — but their love is free!

Keep reading for my video talk with Lucas and Angus ...

RuPAUL'S DRAGCON NYC - Day 3: Don't Write Checks Your Ass Can't Cash Comments (0)

IMG_8387_newStopping traffic! (All images & videos by Matthew Rettenmund)

I wasn't even gonna go to Day 3 of RuPaul's DragCon NYC — only because I was physically drained from the first two days, and wanted to hit the Broadway Flea Market, where I always find something cool.

 

So I headed to the event, got a nice shot of Tyne Daly, missed getting a (paid) pic with Chita Rivera (!) by less than a minute, and quickly became flustered by the impenetrable groups around every table. They don't shut down the damn streets, leading to clogged sidewalks. Impossible! As I left, I spotted the plastic awning from The Boys in the Band, all 6' of it. That I scooped right up, making the trip worth it.

On my way home, I gave in and returned to RDCNYC — and I'm glad I caved!

Day 3 was well worth the 90 minutes I invested.

First, tons of guys decided, perhaps because it was Day 3 and they felt emboldened, to walk around with their asses out. Sunday was Bun Day.

Day 2 Of RuPaul's DragCon NYC: Lepore Is The Man Whose Pleasure Depends On The Permission Of Another Comments (0)

IMG_7769*****_newPretty, pretty everywhere ... (All images by Matthew Rettenmund)

Day 2 of RuPaul's DragCon NYC left me more tired than all those sponge dresses I saw. (It was the only overused concept this year, but a testament to Monét X Change's impact on drag culture.)

IMG_7048*****_newPits stop

I dragged myself over there after an intense workout at Mark Fisher Fitness, barely making it in time for the runway presentation by Miz Cracker, who reminded us that in this age of #MeToo, we have to treat each other with respect. Right before bringing out two of the superhot Warwick Rowers in religion-revealing leotards and high heels and encouraging them to half-strip.

It was all in good fun, with the Rowers on hand to plug their 2019 calendar. More on them this week — I was able to interview one of them, Lucas Etienne, along with the calendar's charming creator, Angus Malcolm!

IMG_7094*****_newFirst time in heels!

After that, it was a chaotic day of asking total strangers to make love to my camera and figuring out which of the queens' handlers really, really meant it when they said NO MORE PRESS ...
