"Dity Little Devils" Book Release

Everyone loves openings and premieres! I had a best time making a special appearance at the launch of the new best-selling book by my dear friend, author and periodical publisher Eileen Shapiro.  The book is titled "Precious Little Devils" and the release soiree was held at the legendary Manhattan Monster nightclub in Greenwich Village in New York City on July 31, 2016.  Had a blast with recording artist buddies Lovari, Aaron Paul, T-Boy, Tym Moss and magazine Publisher (Get Out) Mike Todd and stylist Albert Crocus Pena.

GMHC 26th Annual Latex Ball

It was a proud, emotional and thrilling time at the 26th annual Latex Ball held at the grand ballroom at Terminal 5 at 610 West 56th Street in Mid-town Manhattan, New York City on July 30, 2016.  The event was sponsored and created by GMHC to raise funds and bring awareness to AIDS and HIV. The Latex Ball was built from ballroom traditions: love, family, respect and support. It’s important for the new generation to know that in the late 1980s, members of the ballroom scene came together to help GMHC bring HIV and AIDS awareness, as we were among communities’ hardest hit by HIV and AIDS. One of these projects became the annual House of Latex Ball.  After 26 great years together, we look to bring the essence of why the Latex Ball was initially created. We reflect and celebrate the lives of those we’ve lost in the fight against HIV and AIDS. We brought together community, awareness, testing and information.

90s Flashblack : Mermaids Cher

I was so happy and honored to be performing in a fantastic showcase that raised much needed funds for LGBTQ homeless youth.  The event was called 90s Flashback: As Time Goes By and was held at the Midtown Hot-spot nightclub, Therapy Lounge at 348 West 48th Street, NYC on July 9, 2016.  The show was produced by The Imperial Court of New York and we all had a blast enjoying songs from the past.  I channeled a 90s Cher as I performed the Shoop-Shoop song (It's in his Kiss) from Mermaids- 1990.
