DMFAO Pre-New Year Opening

I was so glad to make a special celebrity appearance and attend the a Pre-New Year's Eve gala and official Grand opening of New York City's hottest and most glamorous Dance party DMFAO at a grand nightclub in Midtown called District 36. The place is a prime example of New York Fabulous Nightlife and we all had a fantastic time with a fun crowd, chic ambiance and a state-of-the-art high-tech sound system. The evening was also a birthday party for videographer Francis Legge and promoter Mark Nelson. Music was by DJs Junior Vasquez, Nesto, Anton Bass and Formika. We enjoyed amazing live performances by Sylvia Tosun and Sesily Treasure of the Pussycat Dolls.

Stonewall Democrats Holiday Cheer

This past year has made tremendous progress in LGBT Civil Rights, so it was very festive at the annual Stonewall Democrats Holiday Party. I was once on the Board of Directors of the Stonewall Democrats of New York City, a powerful caucus that helps direct and advise the Democratic party in New York City on Gay issues and causes. The holiday soiree took place on December 13th at The LGBT Community Center of New York City. The guest list included City Council Speaker Christine Quinn, City Councilman Danny Dromm, NY State Assembly Members Danny O'Donnell and Dick Gottfried, Former City Comptroller Bill Thompson, Eric Bottcher of Governor Cuomo's office, judicial delegate Melissa Sklarz and many more political activists and elected officials.

SoHo Holiday Art Gallery Celebrating

I had a wonderful time celebrating the Holidays at one of the most prestigious high-end Visual Art Galleries in the SoHo fine art district in New York City, the William Bennett Gallery on Prince Street in Manhattan. I met so many wonderful friends and colleges in the Art world and we enjoyed cranberry martinis, cocoa and sparkling Italian water with yuletide pastries and desserts. There was even a fantastic live jazz band! We decked the halls among original works of the most famous modern artists like Salvatore Dali, Andy Warhol, Pablo Picasso, Joan Miro and many others.

"Icons" Fierce Drag in Times Square!

I had a fabulous time at the opening night of the newest and hottest Drag Show in New York City! Icons, a casino-style musical gala with Drag Celebrity Female Impersonators and the necessary hunky bare-chested male back-up dancers, opened at the Snapple Theater in the Times Square Broadway Theater district on November 25th. The show was truly amazing with two Drag performers, Brianna Andrews (Ricardo Torres) and Dennis Williams who invoked Lady GaGa, Beyonce, Tina, Britney, Cher, Madonna, Michael and Janet and many more! The girls were accompanied by the most astonishing and talented dancers who had all the right moves and looks. The show provides the fiercest and most fabulous Drag talent with some powerful and awesome dancers, making it the most electrifying showcase to hit the City in a long time! Power to the Divas!!

Puppets, Television and Comedy

I had an interesting yet fun time at the studio of April Brucker, famed Comedienne, Ventriloquist and actress from NBC's Last Comic Standing and Avenue Q, where we set out to record a hilarious TV episode for Confessions, an Internet based Television program where we joked and talked about friends, enemies and our love-hate relationships with "Frenemies." Comic Peter Magierski and Drag Diva Ivy were also present. April brought out her side-kick puppet May and we all made it through the evening.

"Meet The Breeds" Four-Legged Friends and Fashion

I had the most "purr-fect" time at an amazing event that showcased over 200 different breeds of pedigree dogs and cats! I made an appearance for a new media project at "Meet the Breeds" at the Jacob Javitz Convention Center in New York City. I loved meeting all the wonderful people and animals and discovered some exotic new breeds, like the "Toyger" cat that looks amazingly like the wild Tiger! I also loved seeing the Cairn Terriers, the breed of Toto of the "Wizard of Oz", the leopard spotted Bengal cat, the elegant French poodles, the cute Mexican Hairless, the outlandish Gypsy Dog (Bedlington Hound) and many others! I especially enjoyed the Cat Fashion Show. I went with Tony Sawicki and I loved meeting City celebrities Schmitty the Weather Dog and meteorologist Ron Trotta.

New Jersey Trans Rocking

I had a great time at one of the hottest and the only weekly nightclub party for Transgender and CrossDressers and friends and admirers in Norther New Jersey. It's called Amanda's Hide-A-Way and its loads of fun. It was formerly Karalyn's Oasis, one of the legendary Trans parties in the NYC Tri-State area. Karalyn retired and handed over the reins to the party to Amanda, who hosts a fantastic evening in the PL Lounge in Hackensack, New Jersey. Special thanks to Rolanda Rose for taking such fabulous pics!
