Shows to make the yuletide gay
Bar d'O was a gay-drenched downtown restaurant which lit up the '90s with a live, intimate cabaret show that was racy, soulful, and right up on your plate. The place closed, but fortunately it never really went away. For eight years, Indochine has been hosting Bar d'O reunion shows, and the one las ... More >>
I was flanked by these two lovelies, Spicky Hilton and Digna Shei, at the Tranny Strip anniversary bash at Evolve the other night.
Chris Crocker went from yelling "Leave Britney Alone!" to "Leave my clothes on the floor!" The talented drama queen is now officially a gay porn star with his own XXX-rated website, and his very first scene--some hardcore action with his ex boyfriend Justin Goble--is available for viewing. Goble ... More >>
Every year, tireless organizer Cherry Jubilee gets last year's GLAM AWARD winners (for LGBT nightlife) together and throws them a theme. This time, it was silver and blue, so as one of the winners, I peeked into my closet and just happened to find a dazzling, sparkly silver body suit that's the mos ... More >>
Last night at xl, the nominations were announced for the GLAM awards (formerly the Glammy awards, until the Grammies got bullyish). Those are Cherry Jubilee's illustrious honors for the best in LGBT nightlife. And the choices for Entertainer of the Year--which were glamorously announced by yours t ... More >>
WilsonModels Photography was there to capture the magic when the weekly Hot Mess event hosted hot messes toasting a hot mess. This was the real H&M (especially when you look at my outfit).
Did you smell deep-fried rabbit last night on West 42nd Street? Well, for her alleged 50th birthday, drag legend Lady Bunny got roasted by her Hot Mess costars, along with others (like little old me) at xl, and the fur flew so hard it made Roseanne's TV roast look like the Kennedy Center Honors! H ... More >>
When Get Out magazine throws a nightlife gala, everyone comes with their feathers and tails on. Such was the case at Get Out's awards at Splash on Saturday, especially when it came to yours truly. I not only looked extremely fierce, mama, but I presented two honors--and won a plaque for keeping ga ... More >>
Drag star Sherry Vine -- the Elizabeth Taylor of downtown and the Gaga-spoofing YouTube queen -- is hosting a variety show for Here TV called She's Living for This. Well, I'm living for Sherry's favorite variety shows of all-time, and she generously obliged me with them since we both love a high-co ... More >>
"You heard that Whitney Houston died, right?" said emcee Judy Gold at "Encore for Hope," the American Cancer Society benefit last night at Club Providence. She was actually going there. And to set up a joke, God bless her. "No, let me not bring down the mood," added Judy. "Let's talk about cancer! ... More >>
The Glammy Awards are Cherry Jubilee's gala tribute to promoters, comics, drag queens, bartenders, gogo boys, and bloggers. But the Glammys deserves an award of their own for the annual Aaron Cobbett shot of the previous year's winners decked out in a zingy color theme as only the club crowd ... More >>
Awardsthey're a girl thing. Mostly, anyway, but the shows are bitchin'
Plus Amy Ryan: not your everyday Jane
I just shot a cameo in a Michael Lucas porn film called Kings of New York--relax, I was fully clothed (though I was certainly willing to strip if they wanted). As a judge in a talent competition scene, I sat with drag star Bianca Del Rio and Big Brother's Steve Daigle (above right) and mad ... More >>
Drag star Sherry Vine doesn't need my help in hyping this outrageous little Lady Gaga parody of hers. It's already gotten way over a million hits and a kazillion trillion comments and it's assuredly on its way to becoming part of the curriculum at various Ivy league schools and animal nurseri ...

I made a fool of myself at last year's Glammy Awards for downtown club culture, when I lost Best Writer/Blogger to Lady Bunny and grabbed the mic to say, "This is an outrage! This is like when Pia Zadora beat Meryl Streep for the Golden Globe!"
Remember Greg Scarnici, the white guy who did the hilarious Aretha Franklin homage which I posted on this blog after the inauguration? No? Well, now he's done a parody of Top Chef as if it were a gay Bravo show called Top Top!
Mama's gonna be in the Tribeca Film Festival again! I play a small role in SqueezeBox!, the documentary about the hawt drag rock club that livened up the trannie-sitional '90s, though I imagine more screen time will be filled with names like the Toilet Boys, Sherry Vine, Debbie Harry, and John Camer ...
