Clover Honey makes News in Brooklyn

I'm thrilled to be included, quoted and pictured in Brooklyn Newspapers in articles about the Brooklyn LGBT Pride Festival and Twilight Parade.  There is a wonderful photo of me and Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams on the front page of The Brooklyn Paper saying "Borough President Adams takes a moment away from his grand duties to flash a smile with noted drag queen Lady Clover Honey." 

I was also quoted in the Brooklyn Daily Eagle in their report about the event: "It's really amazing to see that not only de Blasio but so many of our local politicians support Brooklyn -- its queer culture and its diversity," said Lady Clover Honey, who marched in the parade. "Not everyone is lucky to have politicians like this that come out and show their love and that's what this parade is about -- love and pride in our community." 

"Having this parade at the end of the week and at night makes it different than most other Pride Parades," Lady Clover Honey said.  "Everything during the week leads up to this and having it at night gives it more of a party atmosphere, sort of a Caribbean feel.  It's so much fun."

Jersey Girl in Atlantic City

This original Jersey Girl had a blast starting the Summer month of June by spending three days at the sizzling shore hot-spot resort Atlantic City, New Jersey.  I had a blast at Resorts International, Caesars Palace, the Boardwalk and other seaside spots.  I especially had a ball making an appearance at the Rainbow Room Complex, 55 South Belleview Avenue, Atlantic City, New Jersey, the only Gay nightclub in town.  The guys at the Rainbow are so much fun, friendly and HOT!  Loved having fun with Kevin, Andrew, John and the rest.  Special thanks to Howie V for taking these fabulous pics!
