Queens Pride !
A crowd estimated at more than 25,000 enjoyed sunny skies and revelry at the 16th annual Queens LGBT Pride Parade and Festival, on Sunday June 1 in Jackson Heights. I was thrilled and honored to be a featured performer at the Festival. I had most wonderful time with Queens District Leader and Pride Founder Daniel Dromm along with Congressman Anthony Weiner, NY City Council Speaker Christine Quinn, NYC Comptroller Bill Thompson, NYC Council member Rosie Mendez, The Center Executive Director Richard Burns and others. The entertainment line-up featured original Village People Cowboy Randy Jones plus recording artists Lovari and Amber Rose Marie, T Boy, Israeli Pop Singer Shiko Aviance, Kate Riggstage, Anthony Rodriques, Appolonia Cruz and others. I did some of my Stand-up routine and also danced during Lovari's amazing singing performance with dancers Andrew and Lana. Queens is the second largest borough of NYC and considered to be the most ethnically diverse county in the USA.
