Stonewall Bears and Honey

I had a HUGE good time as the Hostess of the great big annual Stonewall Bear Pageant!  It took place at the legendary Stonewall Inn at 53 Christopher in Greenwich Village, New York City on August 29th.  Big, Hairy and incredibly sexy men from all over came to compete for the leather sash and title to represent the Bear Community for Stonewall in New York.  Mr. Stonewall Cub Jay Edwards, Mr. North American Bear Jed Ryan, Mr. Metro Cub Heriberto Oquendo, Mr. Drummer Bear and hundreds of other Bears, Cubs, Otters, Admirers and friends came to check out the Super-sized competition. Also present were Doc Hoskins Jr. and the sizzling Men of Onyx, an organization formed and operated by Men of Color who enjoy the Leather Lifestyle!

Fresh and Fruity Evening of Fun

The 10th annual Fresh Fruit Festival presents a fun evening of song, improv and stand-up comedy called "Fruits Gone Wild!" on Saturday, July 21st at 10pm. With the juicy talents of me, Lady Clover Honey (NYC Life's "Under the Pink Carpet"), funny-gal Alison Grillo (Upright Citizens Brigade), sexy Leather-man Jed Ryan (Mr. Rawhide), comic/producer Evan Laurence (Sexahol Review, People's Improve Theater) and performance artist David Slone (Squeezebox Cabaret, The Love Show) and a special surprise by my dear sister Lady Karalynne Honey. We reenacted our childhood performance act of "Sisters" with a burlesque twist!  The event took place at the WILD Project, 195 East 3rd Street, in the hip East Village of NYC.  Fresh Fruit is an inclusive International Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Culture & Arts Festival held in New York City! All Out Arts' most exciting ongoing event, The Fresh Fruit Festival feeds the spiritual and artistic souls of the LGBT and artistic communities. Special thanks to City, nightlife, culture photographer Miguel Dominguez for taking wonderful images.

Stonewall F2M Trans Fundraiser

I had a wonderful time making an appearance at an event that was used to raise funds for Brian Ellicott, a Female-to-Male Transsexual, to have top chest surgery. The procedure helps F2M Transgenders will remove their female breasts and make their torsos look like male chests.  The event took place on July 8th at the legendary historic Stonewall Inn at 53 Christopher Street in Manhattan's Greenwich Village.  Among the gusts were New York City Council Members Rosie Mendez and Melissa Mark-Viverto (Districts 2 and 8 Manhattan), Stonewall Democrats President Melissa Sklarz, Political Activists Mark Thompson and Michael Mallon, Mr. Stonewall Cub Jay Edwards, DJ Bone Intell, Gerard Mawn of Staten Island Pride, Diva Appolonia Cruz, actor Taylor with a special performance by SAG actor and recording artist Lovari.
