I had a most exciting evening, making an appearance like Katy Perry, complete with blue hair-do and cupcake bra, at "Oh! You Pretty Things - New Romantic Ball III." It was a unique, extravagant and super fun party with a guest-list that included revelers of all ages, sexual orientations, genders, gender-expressions and couture costumes. It was held on May 26th at the hip and grand nightclub, Le Poisson Rouge at 158 Bleecker Street in Greenwich Village in Downtown Manhattan, New York City. There were amazing live performances including burlesque and music by the incredible twenty-two piece ensemble This Ambitious Orchestra. Special thanks to my gorgeous dear friend Hunteur Vreeland a host and promoter of the fantastic party.

I had a chic and stylish time at a grand soiree celebrating Couture Society's start of the 2013 Summer fashion season at the Penthouse of DL Lounge at 94 Delancey Street in the now trendy Lower East Side of Downtown Manhattan, New York City on May 24. The event also lauded the birthday of famed fashion photographer Roman Kajzer. Fashionistas, models, designers, photographers and others in the Fashion Couture industry gathered together among the palm trees and spectacular views and welcomed in the sexy, sizzling season of Summer!

Disco Lives! On May 18th, Dance 208, the amazing dances held at The LGBT Community Center of New York City, re-created the legendary NYC Discotheque Nightclub Studio 54. DJ Ted Snowdon spun classic disco dance beats from the 1970s and we all had a blast from the past Shaking our Groove Thangs while wearing vintage couture Among reproductions of the decor that was at the actual hotspot we mingled and danced that night away with tunes by Donna Summer, Abba, Village People, Bee Gees, Sylvester, Sister Sledge, Peaches & Herb, Cher and many more.

Bears prowled through the concrete forest when thousands of guys from around the world attended the annual Urban Bear weekend in New York City on May 5th. Big and hairy men and their friends and admirers had a blast with a weekend of partying that celebrated "Bears" "Cubs" "Otters" and all exciting hirsute maleness. I loved attending the Bear Fair on Little West 12th Street between Washington Street and 10th Avenue in the Meat Packing District of the West Village in New York City. There were NYC's finest food trucks, artists & craftsmen, community groups, fetish vendors, a pie eating contest and a big belly contest. All this with live entertainment including Homo Erectus Boylesque with Matt Knife and Brooklyn Irons! Myself and Lady Bunny, who spun tunes as the event DJ, were the only "girls" but we held our own among all the hot guys. Had a blast with Anu Singh, Steve Schulman, Mr. Rawhyde-Jed Ryan, Mr. Boots and Saddle, model Eric Alan, photographer Rob Ordonez, fashion designer Geary Marcello, promoter George Hains, John-John Onyx, LeNair Xavier and many others.

We all had such a blast celebrating the joint Birthdays of dear friends Alan Anderson and Dylan Ftera at the legendary and historic Stonewall Inn (53 Christopher Street, NYC) in Manhattan's Greenwich Village on May 19th. The soiree was also the two-year anniversary of Dylan's successful kidney transplant from Alan to Dylan. They both wore t-shirts with a Ben Franklin 100 dollar bill since their combined ages equal one hundred. Friends and family, including guys from the NYC Gay Men's Chorus and divas from the "Invasion" Drag show, Tina Burner, Chocolatina Q Dessert and Howie "Cher" all had warm and exciting celebration at the famed nightspot where the rebellion that started modern Gay Civil Rights movement in 1969 took place.

I loved making an appearance at the Leslie Lohman Museum of Gay Art at one of their sizzling visual art exhibition opening events on May 3rd. The showing was called "Visions of Men" and featured original artwork celebrating the beauty of the male form. Images and works by Todd Yeager, JC Etheredge, Lucky Sanford, Robert W. Richards, Bill Crist, Darin DeField, Ricardo Francis and Gary Speziale graced the wall of the annex gallery at 127 Prince Street in the SoHo Arts district of downtown Manhattan. The Leslie Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art is the first dedicated LGBT Art Museum in the world with a mission to exhibit and preserve LGBTQ art, and foster the artists who create it. We all had a great time and enjoyed artist LeNair Xavier, who was a hit as a living Vision of Man, tending bar in a sensual, revealing outfit.
