NY Times and Media for The Bronx

We were all so happy at what a wonderful time and success that the Bronx Pride & Health Fair was with hundreds of revelers who came together to show support.  There was so much media support that showcased the event that also mentioned me and my performance.  This includes the New York Daily News, Time Out New York magazine and even the renowned New York Times which also included a fabulous photo of me on stage at the Amphitheater in Crotona Park in The Bronx.  The article reads:

"Crotona Park was the site of an all-day Bronx L.G.B.T.Q. Pride and Health Fair on July 20.  Under a mascara-melting sun, a crowd watched as drag performers like Lady Clover Honey let their colors fly."

Pride in The Bronx

I just loved being a featured entertainer at the 2013 Bronx Pride & Health Fair held in Crotona Park in the Bronx, NYC on July 20th.  The live entertainment took place in the impressive Amphitheater.  Other performers included recording artists Lovari, Adam Barta, Cisco with actor/cabaret chartreuse Tym Moss, drag divas Appolonia Cruz, Tyra Ross, Jacqueline Dupree and many others.  There was also support and speeches given my NY City Council Speaker Christine Quinn and Bronx Borough President Rubin Diaz Jr. There was dancing with music by DJ Eddie Cruz along with shopping, food, Community tables and free health screenings and testings.

Queers in Exile Art Exhibit

I loved being the official hostess at the opening night gala of a unique and fascinating exhibit at the renowned Leslie Lohman LGBT Art Museum at 26 Wooster Street in the SoHo Arts district of New York City.  The exhibit called "Queers in Exile: the Unforgotten Legacies of LGBT Homeless Youth"  was part of the annual Fresh Fruit Festival and opened on July 17th.  The exhibition explored he personal histories, creativity, and activism of LGBTQ street-involved youth from the Stonewall Riots of 1969 to present day.  Inspired by transgender activist Sylvia Rivera's essay Queers in Exile, the Forgotten Ones, this exhibition makes visible the long-hidden crisis of queer youth homelessness, while highlighting the powerful ways these young people have helped each other survive and create change.  The artwork included an original Andy Warhol silk screen image of legendary street Queen Marsha P. Johnson

Bingo for The Bronx

I had a fantastic time at the Will Clark Show featuring Porno Bingo at Uncle Charlie's Midtown Lounge at 139 East 45th Street in Manhattan on July 10th. Funds were raised for the Bronx LGBTQ Community Center, a much needed safe space for the folks in the City's upper borough.  Entertainment included my dear friends actor/comedian/cabaret singer Tym Moss, recording artist Cisco and the fierce, fabulous drag persona Jacqueline Dupree and we all had the best time ever!  With Bingo, Porn, fab divas, hot men and good friends you can never go wrong!
