Lady Bunny "Clowns Syndrome"

Drag legend, nightlife pioneer, and Logo TV’s Drag U star Lady Bunny is back with another delightfully offensive solo show packed with song parodies, original videos and savagely hilarious celebrity insults. Included in the show are a rant against political correctness, circus-chic costume changes and sickening videos including a roast by Joan Rivers.  The show, called Clowns Syndrome, takes place on Tuesdays at La Escuelita Cabaret Theater, 301 West 39th Street, New York City.  I had a bash on opening night, March 29, 2014 with Drag Divas Margoh Channing, Sherry Vine, Sugga Pie Koko, Milan, Celebrity Impersonators Dorothy Bishop, Howie V Cher, promoter Louie Garay and others.

Fresh Fruit Festival Awards

I was thrilled and honored to be a performer at the annual Fresh Fruit Festival Awards, held on April 30th at the legendary and Dixon Place.  Dixon Place is an Obie Award winning, Off-Broadway New York City theater devoted exclusively to presenting original pieces of theater, dance, performance art and literature that are works in progress. The Fresh Fruit Awards, affectionately known as "The Fruities" honor outstanding art and performance in the Festival and also give kudos to outstanding dedication and devotion to the Arts and the LGBT Communities.  The Fresh Fruit Festival is NYC's renowned, multidisciplinary, international festival of LGBT arts & culture.   I had a blast with Robert Urban, Carol Polcovar, Nick Curto, Frank Calo, Jeff Leeds, Gerard Flores, Alvin Rangel, Suellen Rubin, Heidi Russell, Pheobe Leger and many other fruity friends and family celebrating the independent NYC LGBTQ arts scene.

Easter Parade "All in Clover"

In my Easter Bonnet, with all the frills upon it, I felt like one of most grandest Ladies in the Easter Parade.  We were "all in clover" as we celebrated the holiday of Springtime and Rebirth at New York City's annual Easter Parade, an exciting spectacle to see and be seen in.  I made my appearance with dear friends including chums  from Jerseylicious, the NYC chapter of the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence and the Imperial Court of NY.  For over a hundred years, Fifth Avenue in Manhattan is closed for vehicle  traffic from 48th Street to 57th Street for people to strut their stuff, showing off their Easter ensembles and headgear.   From the glamorous to the outrageous, thousands of people commemorated the festivity with fierce fashion and tons of fun! We also stopped by the Faberge' Egg Art Exhibit at Rockefeller Center where an amazing show of decorative eggs were displayed.

Tartan Day Parade and Scottish Festival

April 5th was the 16th annual New York Tartan Day Parade where a grand parade march went up 6th Avenue/Avenue of the Americas to 55th Street in New York City to celebrate the culture and historic links between Scotland and the USA.  We all had a rousing, wonderful time with all the bagpipe music, marching bands, drummers, Celtic dancers, flag twirlers, and others having a Scotch blast!  Ancestral clans and Scottish organizations all decked out in their traditional tartans got the chance to march down the Avenue and show their heritage.  And where else can anyone ever get the chance to see hundreds of handsome men in kilts?
