After the Expo, I went with Lovari to take part in an exciting MTV / Logo network Video Shoot for a song called Fearless People by J Fortino. The location of the shoot was at a Boxing Gym in Soho were we were joined by other dance recording artists Heather Leigh West and Dawn Tallman. There were some very sexy Boxers in the video and I played a girlfriend of one of the fighters. The video was directed by Frances Legge. I felt just like Barbara Streisand in The Main Event. Mike Diamond come by to do a news report on the video and I gave him a comical interview for Fierth.com.

It was time again for the annual GLBT Expo at NYC's Jacob Javitz Convention Center. I had the honor of being the hostess at the official Video Lounge sponsored by the Long Island Film Festival and managed by TV personality Ryan Wolowski. The cast of Under the Pink Carpet was also there to co-host with me and we screened special segments of our tv series and met fans. Tony Sawicki, Stephanie Butler, Robin Cloud and recording artist Lovari, who performs the opening theme song, Work It Out, were all there and we had a fantastic time. It was great to see the hundreds of exhibition tables of Gay and gay-friendly businesses, media and community organizations. We video taped a segment for Under the Pink Carpet were I had a thrilling time riding the Mechanical Bull at the exhibit for the Gay Rodeo!

On March 6, I was honored to be a performer at a special event that tributes the classic sitcom, The Golden Girls. The soriee called "We Love The Golden Girls" took place at the legendary Stonewall Inn in Greenwich Village NYC, where Drag Queens caused a Riot that sparked the modern Gay Civil Rights movement in 1969. This evening Queens who were born as both genders impersonated Dorothy, Blanche, Rose and Sophia of Miami in that fabulous 80s television comedy. There was a look-alike contest, cheesecake buffet with episodes playing on screen all evening. I sang "Little Girl from Little Rock" from "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes" but changed the words and sang "I'm just a little girl from Saint Olaf." in honor or Rose Nieland. We all had a solid gold time with Linda Simpson, Queens Marie, Alexia, Raven Snook, Sharyn Jackson, Hatty Hathaway, Gayle Robbins as "Barbra Striesand" and many others.

I am thrilled and honored to be the hostess of BEAREOKE @ Rockbar. It's a Kareoke night sponsored by the Metrobears, a social networking organization for gay men who identify as Bears, Cubs, Otter and their friends and admirers. Bears are men who like their size and body hair and feel no need to fit into the twink or gym bunny stereo type. But everyone is welcome to come to BEAREOKE and have a good time. Two Football teams from the NYGFL (New York Gay Footbal League) from Rock Bar and Gym Bar attended and I had the best time with all thy guys. The event takes place every other Thursday at Rockbar, a bar on Christopher Street in Greenwich Village NYC that has the most exciting rock and band performances.

It was time for Center BINGO again! It's what Time Out NY magazine calls a New York City essential and a fantastic evening. After this long, harsh winter and the sudden emergence of warm Springtime weather, I grabbed a pastel pink gown AND wig to symbolize a new budding rose on an Easter egg shell! My co-hostess for the evening was Appolonia Cruz, the Latina Diva extraordinaire. We had a great time. Although our bare-chested physique model, Tass, didn't show up again! However, I persuaded a gorgeous young man named Markos to take his shirt off. And the crowd went wild!!
