Rosebuds at Men's Chorus

We all had a wonderful time at the annual Rosebud Party, a garden party held at a grand estate in Westchester county New York as a benefit for the New York City Gay Men's Chorus. The guys in the Chorus gave a small concert at a church across the street that was fabulous. And we loved mingling on the gardens, terraces and balconies at the beautiful estate. The buffet and open bars were delightful. Myself and other drag divas donned pretty floral print garden dresses and hats to complement the garden theme of the soiree.

Burlesque Dance

I'm not only a Drag Diva, I'm also known as a Burlesque Diva in the New York City area, making regular performances at Sexahol Review and Drags & Dolls Burlesque. That's why I was especially delighted to be hosting a Burlesque Dance at Dance 208, the longest running Gay Dance party in New York. Sexy male Physique models Tass and Torrez were featured go go dancers and there was an old fashioned Burlesque act that treated the crowd to fantastic eye candy. A bawdy, riotous, and extremely fun time was had by all! The event took place on Saturday May 2 at The LGBT Center of NYC.

Anniversary BINGO

May 2009 was my One Year Anniversary for hosting Center BINGO. It has been a thrilling, wonderful year and I've made so many wonderful friends at this fantastic fund-raising and social program at The LGBT Center of New York City. The crowd that comes is beautiful and loves hearing all of my jokes and gossip as I call out the numbers. I've had so many great co-hosts during the year including recording artists and nightclub, radio, television and film personalities. My hosting of this traditional BINGO game with my fabulous twist has been mentioned in Time Out New York Magazine, Next, HX, DishMiss and many other publications. It's been a thrilling year and I look forward to many more times hosting BINGO at this fantastic event. My guest host this month was Drag Diva Amanda Takehometomother, who is also a fabulous and experienced Drag BINGO hostess.
