the column It was time to gather up the Gays and hold court and that’s just what happened at Philip Marie Restaurant in the West Village. I texted some Gays and we all got down and dirty sucking on some BBQ ribs, coleslaw, mac and cheese and biscuits. and we did it with grace. We chopped, chewed and cocktailed it up New York City style. So you want to know who joined me? Well, Jeff Eason, Joey Israel, Cheyne Hauk and Eddy Barrena were the weekend guests, and can I tell you, the topic of each conversation was rather interesting. They came from the Folsom Street, so you know pictures were shown and a lot of ass-pieeating was talked about. What great dinner talk (what would our Mothers say?)... pass the butter, please. We chatted of Rihanna, Chris Brown and Dre, and you all know that old story... girl gets boy, boy beats girl, girl leaves boy and boys have a cat fight. So many things flying around the rumor mill, but as I said, just rumors. Some things are best left unsaid. We sat for a few, finished dinner, and that’s when Eason and Israel went for it... no, no not each other… they ordered dessert. I guess a day at the Folsom Street left them with a sweet tooth as they hit up the Chocolate Brownie Pyramid. People, it was just another moment in Gaydom. It was off to Invasion at Bar 13, so off I went on my merry way to see Chris Ryan and Nathan Kelly along with Host Demanda Dahling, Madame Black, Jazmyne LeQuore and Kevin Novinski. It was hugs and kisses from each. Yes, these Queens know how to flip a Thursday and turn out a “start of the weekend rooftop party”! Way to go, ladies. We ran into Jeff Eason, Sasha Seven, JJ Mack, Akash Abraham, Matt Rivera and DJ Ricardo, all moving about to the sounds of DJ JJ Lanz, toasting with cocktails as we all waited to see the video release and performance of S.E.E.X.X by Eddy Barrena. As he stepped onto the stage, he was joined by sexy, tight and sweet, Dalton Franklin. The two moved about together as they touched, rubbed and filled the air with the flavor of hot sex. The vibe of it all brought up the temperature making it red hot. When you say the words “hot” and “filling the air with sex”, it brings to mind Matthew Camp. He, Josephine Halle B and Blake Tysinger worked G Bar and Lounge into a frenzy. Camp walked around dressed as a clown in a one-piece thong singlet and a big red foam nose, and from the looks around the room, he wasn’t the only one walking around with something big and red. Oy vey. Camp and Tysinger, if you don’t already know, are also jokesters and you

2012-06-20.indd 22

never know what they will do. He whispered into Tysinger’s ear as they were both chatting with me at my table, and out of nowhere, Camp and Tysinger felt the need to put their pee-pees and asses into our faces. I was like, “this is not lady like at all, missy”, and Camp said, “Ok spank me”. Well I can tell you this, at some point he will have a matching set. Camp, Camp, Camp, what am I going to do with you? You’re a bad boy... and trust me, we love it, Baby. Keep On Keepin’ On, and don’t ever change. On Friday, Odyssey Magazine held its annual Pride kick-off party for 2012 at Bamboo 52. The evening was social and relaxing as conversations flowed and laughter filled the air. Among others at the event was the lovely Jake Resnicow of Matinee who was just delightful with his warm smile and amazing hugs. Sean Hoffman, Joey Israel, Mario Alberto, Brian Gorman, Gina Grado, Asher Vance, Anthony Rooar Decarlis, Matt Aubel, Henry Bastos and recording artist, Reina, were among the many who came together to toast and kick off Pride 2012 as only Odyssey Magazine can do. The night went on as we headed over to Fairytail Lounge with Joey Israel. We kicked back a few and enjoyed the sounds of DJ Cazwell and the East Village edge they serve up in Hell’s Kitchen on Friday nights. Dancers Rowan Pierce and Benjamin worked the bar top shaking what their Mamas gave them as they made bank...a lil perky goes a log way. We made our way to Rockit at XL Nightclub where Markus Kellem kept tight...of the ropes as the boys lined up to enter and see recording artist, Dev, perform her hits, “Dancing in the Dark” “Naked”, “Like a G6”, and “Booty Bounce”. DJ Enferno, Lady Bunny and Whitney Day worked their magic on the beats as the delicious Chase Hostler danced and worked the gold on stage turning it out. As you know, a night at Rockit would not be complete without seeing hosts Amanda Lepore, Marco Ovando, Epiphany and Ebonee Excell working the room. Brandon Voss and Tony Fornabaio, a great night as always. Thank you. Seen out: Aaron Aanenson, Matt Maggiacomo, Maddelynn Hatter, Anastasia Oleander, Juan Sebastian Cruz, Dimitrios Tsioumas, Brian Rafferty, Damian Furtch, Justin Magoulas, Nicole Madeline Rivera, Brinton Brewster, Art Gager, Oksana Gedroit, Marc Manali, Matt Kugelman, Kyle Farmery, Sébastien Ra, Michael J.

Once upon a time in the magic land of New York City, each year, King Jerry Mitchell hosted a Grand Gala, and people from all over the land would come together for a grand evening. His latest gala, Broadway Bares XXII, reached the

The sexiest performance of all was Snow White and the Seven Dwarves performed by Nikka Lanzarone, Cesar Abreu, Barrett Davis, Nate Braga, Cedric Leiba Jr., Anthony Rooar Decarlis, Michael Munoz and Adam Cassel. The King was so delighted by all the love and support from the people of Gaydom that when he spoke, his voice ran chills over the land. The people left smiling and all spoke grandly of the King and of the next gala to come. Bravo, Jerry Bravo, and we love you for all that you’ve done and continue to do.

LET’S START BY PLUGGING ME. GEEZ, HOW MANY TIMES HAVE I SAID THAT TO A CRAIGSLIST TRICK??

PHOTO BY ANNA NICOLE IMAGES

BY SHERRY VINE

Let’s start by plugging me. Geez, how many times have I said that to a Craigslist trick?? I have a new night called “The Human Jukebox” which is my only DJ gig in NYC! I use the term “DJ” very loosely because I can’t mix for shit, but my choices are fun and different with a lot of Alternative, Rock, 80’s, etc. The fun part is that anyone can make a request. I might not have your request, I might have it and lie because I don’t wanna hear it, but chances are I will play it if I have it. So come by Fairytail Lounge (500 W. 48th St) every Sunday 8:30-12:30. Drink specials and cheap beer - oh, and yes, WIGS! I got to perform at Pulse in Orlando for Gay Days this year and had a ball. Just one, he lost one in a freak accident. It’s crazy down there for Gay Days. I wish I could have gone down earlier for some Disney adventure or water slide fun but, alas, a working gal has to work. My partner in crime, David Serrano, was there as was the amazing and svelte goddess of porn and DJ extraordinaire, Chi Chi LaRue. Chi Chi actually gave me my very first paid drag gig ever - the premiere of “Paris Is Burning” in LA. I was twelve. I adore Chi Chi, but we never get to hang out or only see each other at a club. So I was so pleased when she knocked on my hotel door and we got to sit and chat and catch up. Then at the club, we had a blast - she was spinning her

2012-06-20.indd 28

ass off and the packed club was living. The show was a blast, and then David and I had a drink at the bar and watched the six sexy GoGo boys. Next stop - Boston - for a big show at Machine for their Gay Pride weekend. I’m part of an indie movie called “Welcome to New York”, coming very soon, and was there to perform and cross-promote for the film. Also in attendance: directors Steven Tyler O’Conner, Sean David, PR man Clay, and my sexy co-star, Sean Paul Lockhart (aka Brent Corrigan). Sean Paul is a sweetheart and happily signed autographs and took pictures all night. My fans, both of them, were happy to see me. LOL! But they loved the show and it was beyond packed! The owner put us in a very fancy, schmancy hotel and took damn good care of us. I also had a great time with the queens there: Liza and Raquel - soooo crazy! I left the club after the show, chiseled the makeup off my face, and jumped in a car to the airport for a 6am flight to… Los Angeles! It was also Gay Pride in LA, and I had a full fantasy weekend there. I was beat when I got there so went to bed in the very trendy Palomar Hotel in Westwood (thank u Here TV!), and slept until 7pm when I had to get up, spray paint my face back on for a photo shoot (in an empty parking

garage - glamour!), then played cruise director for Mario Diaz’s party, Brutus at Faultline. Brutus had a NYC theme as in addition to me, Gant Johnson was DJing, and I hung out all night with my ex-New York buddies, Rob Talty and Vine Milan. I hadn’t seen Rob in 10 years and I adore him. And Mario is one of my fave people in the whole world! I was walking up and down Santa Monica Blvd at 2am trying to get a taxi (like the old days!). I was up early Sunday morning, threw it all back on, and headed down to WeHo for the parade. I sat on the bandstand introducing the floats with Alec Mapa and the Mayor of West Hollywood for a bit, then headed down to the Here TV tent to promote “She’s Living For This”, my hilarious variety show on Here TV, heretv.com, and now Hulu.com. Monday, I had lunch with Jackie Beat, Candis Cayne, Jimmy James, Mario Diaz, Selene Luna, Pandora Boxx, Ian, Johnny Kat and Tigre. THAT WAS AMAZING!!! The best 2 hours ever! Then wig shopping. Then a show with Jackie at The Abbey. I love performing with Jackie Beat. She’s the funniest person in the world. It’s good to watch and learn from your elders! Jimmy James drove me home and then I flew back to NYC. I know many New Yorkers diss LA, but I love it! BIG NEWS: My variety show, SHE’S LIVING FOR THIS, is on Here TV!! You can also see them at www.HereTV.com/sheslivingforthis OR -JUST ANNOUNCED!!!! You can now watch the full episodes on Hulu.com!!!! It’s my lifelong dream come true! Total Carol Burnett meets Cher meets Laugh In meets toilet humor with some sexy boys thrown in. Guests include; Justin Vivian Bond, Joey Arias, Candis Cayne, Peppermint, Cazwell, Busted, David Ilku, Bridget Everett, David Serrano and Bianca del Rio! MEOW!

MOST ANTICIPATED OUTDOOR PARTY IS BACK:

MATINEE AT GOVERNORS BEACH CLUB

2012-06-20.indd 42

6/19/12 12:23 PM


BY MIKE BAHR The hottest guys from around the world will converge on Manhattan’s Governor’s Beach Club this Saturday as Matinée North America takes the reigns of New York Pride, presenting an awe-inspiring island spectacular. The party will feature a massive 4-story tented dance floor with state-of-the-art lights, sound and lasers, an open-air beach with waterslides, and the most striking views of New York City. Music will be by CircuitFestival Barcelona headliners, DJ Taito Tikaro and Hector Fonseca, along with a surprise celebrity performer that VH1 recently named among the top 100 greatest women in music. Getting there is easy. The ferry ride to Governors Beach Club is only four minutes and leaves every 15-20 minutes. To ensure wait time is short, Matinee is bringing in two of the largest ferries to get everyone on and off the island quickly and free. “By mixing our Broadway-show caliber production with waterpark elements, this party is going to mark history for NYC Pride,” says co-producer Jake Resnicow. “Get ready for a spectacle that is truly going to be bigger and better than anything you have seen before.” Matinée launched fifteen years ago in Ibiza with the idea to elevate parties by crafting elaborate sets and theatrical productions. Matinée doesn’t just pump dance music in a dark room and a single set of lights; events are a full on festival for the senses. “It’s like a carnival for adults,” says Patrick Crough, Resnicow’s partner at Matinee North America. Most recently, the pair produced Matinée Las Vegas Festival, an event that featured eight parties over Memorial Day Weekend; selling out all the city’s hottest venues. “Pioneering these epic experiences is a tremendous amount of work but well worth it,” he continues. “We are so excited to present our favorite city with the biggest and wettest party of pride summer.”

Hector Fonseca & Natasha Bedingfield

MATINÉE NEW YORK PRIDE takes place Saturday, June 23rd from 4pm – midnight at Governor’s Beach Club. Tickets start at $49. Matinee Producers Jake Resnicow & Patrick Crough

G Lounge began revolutionizing NYC nightlife back in 1997 and has been setting the standard ever since. This week, G Lounge celebrates Pride with its 11th annual Pride Luau. Still wildly popular today, the “original gay lounge” keeps it fresh and innovative with daily happy hour specials and a line-up of amazing DJs, eclectic hosts, and diverse parties. Couple Franco DiLuzio and Mark Lander have been managing G’s events for nearly 10 years.  The team introduced weekly parties in 2005 on Thursdays with Gorgeous featuring DJ Lina. Shortly thereafter, they launched Küte Sundays with DJ Xavier and a line-up of hosts including Matty Maggiacomo, Joey Israel, Joey Murray and Epiphany. Next, they added BoyBox and DiLF. Tuesday night’s BoyBox features DJ Cazwell and Bianca del Rio with GoGo-boys stripping from jocks into towels. BoyBox also offers a weekly amateur strip-off with a chance to win $100. Hump-day is daddy day at DiLF with DJ Jonny Mack and guest hosts including some of the top names in adult entertainment such as Colton Ford, Arpad Miklos and Kennedy Carter. Lander notes “it’s important to know when it’s time for

2012-06-20.indd 52

something new so that you stay relevant in an ever-changing market.” With that in mind, last fall the weekend line-up was restructured by partnering with a couple of well known promoters. Friday night, Franco and Mark teamed up with Antonio Cedeno Productions and a list of sexy guest hosts including Matheus Raffeli Chaves, Gabriel Anthony, Omar Armando, Jason Casalas and others to present International HOTMALE, with a roster of hot International and local DJs such as Billy Lace, DeMarko!, Alex Lauterstein, Jalil Zougagh, Ronen Mizrahi and Angelos Stylano. Saturday’s TWiST’D Party is presented with Chris Ryan Productions in association with Nathan Kelly, Matthew Camp and Holly Dae to target a younger

demographic. Offering a night of chaotic fun including “nearly naked” twister and twist’d drink specials. Pop and house DJs including Susan Levine, Frank Lamboy, Roberto X, Scotty Rox, Scott Goodz and others keep the night fun and fresh.  The most recent addition to the G line-up is Thursday’s FREAK, hosted by Matt Camp, Blake Tysinger and the new girl in town, Josephine HalleB. Living up to the name, FREAK features progressive house DJs JonJon Battles, Obra Primivita and Kimani G and offers promotional jello shots, late night drink specials and special performances. Proving that tradition still holds power in NYC gay-life, this week’s Pride Luau transforms the entire bar into a full scale-Tiki bar, complete with a bamboo and thatch hut. DiLuzio notes, “my favorite part is the staff in skimpy sarongs, and the sidewalk lounge.” So drop by G to get lei’d and enjoy some Pride punch or a frozen cosmos. Two of NYC’s favorite DJs, Xavier and Justin Dawson, keep the vibe festive. Opening early at 1pm. G Lounge has earned its motto, “Often imitated, never duplicated.”
