QUEENS PRIDE 2014 BY TYRA A. ROSS

A

S THE BRUTAL WINTER CONCLUDED MANY BREATHED A SIGH OF RELIEF AND REJOICED, FOR NOT ONLY CAN THE SHORTS COME OUT BUT SOMETHING GREAT WOULD BE CLOSE AT HAND, ALMOST LIKE A REWARD FOR BEING HELD HOSTAGE BY THE CONSTANT SNOW STORMS. ONCE AGAIN, QUEENS PRIDE IS HERE!

GET OUT!// ADVERTISE WITH US // GETOUTMAG.COM

It was an honor to be asked to host the stage for Queens Pride 2014. I always considered it the official kickoff of the NYC Pride month celebrations. I was immediately taken on a trip down memory lane once I excitedly accepted. I recall the years post-Y2K when I performed and hosted stages for Atlantis and Music Box. I performed on the Atlantis stage in the early years, the Pride main stage as a member of the Krash Follies and at the neighboring clubs and bars. The feeling of family fills the air, always creating a sense of warm familiarity that cannot only be felt but also seen. The many entertainers, legends and newcomers dazzle the crowds in barely-there outfits, impersonations that are spot on and mind bewildering leaving those who do not frequent the nightclubs and bars astonished. I enjoyed this thrilling day alongside legends such as Barbra Herr, Jessica Fox, Cherry Pie, Josie Monroe, Candis Cane and many others. The atmosphere was always extremely warm and friendly. It was impossible to take two steps without being hugged by some enthusiastic trans-woman/man, new in her/his identification, a lesbian who remembered the shows at Krash, a peer or colleague you had not seen for a while or entranced by

some super gorgeous young hot boy/man all celebrating their pride. Organizers this year have come together to recreate this sea of love, freedom and ethnicity that brings radiance to the Queens streets with many vendors serving a variety of foods, entertainer/ performers who have thrilled us throughout the years, organizations that continue to promote equality, healthier living and provide important information and links to healthcare no matter one’s identification, orientation or status. Queens Pride not only aims to celebrate but also to educate. The Pride festival kicks off with the parade around noon at 86th St. and ends at 75th Street on 37th Avenue. The floats and costumes of the parade transport you to one of the many islands/ countries from which these predominantly Latino participants hail to a time during a sort of Carnival celebration. The extravagance is mind boggling and entertaining as they prance by enjoying the music and dancingly freely without showing any signs of fatigue. The messages are never lost, and the importance of Pride is seen as the floats of the

organizations go by and as the well-wishers, allies and politicians march along. The street fair is located between 75th and 77th St. between Roosevelt Ave. to 37th Ave. The Roosevelt MTA train and bus station is located across from the Queens Pride stage and gets into full gear once the parade ends, and goes till 7 p.m. The entertainers slated to appear are Anthony Rodriguez, Lovari, Cheer NY, Anthony Bruno, Tony Harris, CJ Tyson, Ms. Rey & her LaGuardia High School performers, Ghostmouse and The Bleed. And of course it is hosted by the me, Tyra A. Ross!

n addition to being the Queens Pride stage manager for two years in a row, you are also the artist who has performed at the event the most - eight years and counting. Bring me back to your very first performance on their mainstage. Were you nervous? If so, are your feelings still the same now, or are you used to it? Oh, how amazing it has been to be supported by the Queens community and the committee. Actually, my first introduction was when I was the stage manager and performer at Bronx Pride at such a young age. Since that performance it’s been an honor to be an artist that has been brought back over and over to share with the Queens community. I guess it’s a testament of what I’ve delivered and how important consistency in creating is. The audience has been a strong reason why I love Queens Pride; the Latino diversity makes me feel at home. I’m always nervous to perform, but who shows that! It’s what I do, and it’s in my spirit. Every time I get on that stage it is reminiscent of the last and how magically it’s different than the next. It always feels like home. Rain or shine, it has always been a memorable experience and journey. Tell me about some of the artists who will be performing this year. Well, deciding who would be great to share with us this year was a challenge but also an opportunity to reach into my bag of goodies to connect and bring artists together. The host this year will be Tyra Allure, who has been a part of this performance journey with me and also is a great advocate for LGBT youth. Also, again, after such a success last year

I will be dedicating the first hour to LGBT youth performers and allies. Youth participants are members of The Door’s performing arts department as well as other groups I have reached out to like Herencia, a salsa, flamenco youth ensemble and more. So to name a few and not give away too much of our entertainment, Cheer NY will join us as they have before in the opening of the stage. Lovari will share again with us performing and adding a powerful message to our event. Anthony Bruno with a live band, Tony Harris, Ms. Rey alongside her son and young performers from LaGuardia High School, CJ Tyson, salsa/ballroom dancers, vogue choreography, the band Ghostmouse, The Bleed, Hombres and more. As for your own performances, you always bring something amazing musically and visually to the table. Can you give us a sneak peek of what we can expect from you this year? Since I am kind of celebrating my years as a performer for Queens Pride and the last performer to hit the stage, I’m doing a mash-up of the times. I will be performing with members of my dance company La Santa Luz and with my young dancers form The Door. Maybe a flamenco solo, maybe Boricua Lover - who knows! A big celebration of how humbled and grateful I am to have had all of these experiences, and also to share with my cast from the past and give light to the future. It’s going to be a kaleidoscope of LOVE!  How is your new music project coming along? This project I’m working on is very personal and different, and I have made a commitment

to my spirit with a promise to the universe to not discuss any further till the project is complete. So to answer your question, it’s going GREAT! More information soon. You work hands on with a lot of youth, specifically at The Door. Let our readers know about that. The Door! I don’t even know where to begin, but it has been an amazing five years. To have been able to spearhead the dance program and now help in the development of what I like to say “the feeling” of the arts program has been a blessing. To assist in the journey of developing young people and their holistic being is what The Door is about. We not only have arts programming, which includes music production, vocals, visual art, fashion, step and of course dance but also have mental health services, a health clinic, job placement and training, college support, a powerful runaway homeless youth program, legal advice and LGBT youth programming and support. Our population’s age range is from 12-21. All of our programs and services are FREE. A young person simply has to come by to become a member and become part of our safe space community. You can learn more about The Door at Door.org. What’s in store for the remainder of the year? Peace and the cleansing of my creative rebirth project! Also a fight for more awareness and funding for arts programming. I’m putting it out there, and I am on a mission! Oh, and a nice vacation away with...hmm, I’ll just stop there!

LOVARI BY DIANA NETTEYI

figured, hey, why not just start my own with somebody that I trust - my producer Infinite. So we merged our production companies into one, and it is Pathway Records/34 Whale Entertainment.

ou have a brand new song out, “Touch Me,” with adult TV pioneer Robin Byrd, which is currently on MTV Online. How did the collaboration come about? I grew up watching Robin Byrd on TV (on the sneak tip, since I was only a teenager), and we became friends through our social circles in the NYC nightlife scene. Her manager/ partner Shelly suggested that we should record something together, and of course I jumped at the chance. I’m extremely honored. We had a great, fun time in the studio, and her singing voice is ethereal. She can carry a tune! I wrote it, she added her Byrd flavor to it, and Infinite produced it. Speaking of the producer Infinite, you both have a new record label! Congratulations! Is this easier than being signed to a label, or is it more difficult? At this stage in the game, it’s basically the same thing. The only difference is that being signed to a well-known label, they have the finances to promote your song more and book you on a promo tour. But let’s be honest, I was doing most of the leg work myself, even when I was signed to a label, so I

You have also branched out into producing adult films with the legendary Latino Fan Club. Do you think this will alienate some of your fans? Oh, it definitely has alienated some of my supporters, but I have to stay true to myself, and therefore, if I find that my creativity can be expanded to other areas, then I have to go with my vibe. Incidentally, the first title that I co-produced with creator Brian Brennan “Savage Urban Desires” - is already sold out, so I’d like to think that I’m doing something right! You participated in a protest against a homophobic church in Harlem recently, which received national coverage. Any updates on that? I have always let it be known about my faith in God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit. Therefore, when I see signs like “Jesus would stone homos” on so-called churches, then you know I am

going to participate in a call to action. In this case, Jennifer Louise Lopez knocked on the church door, asked for her stoning, created the protest, and now she will be joining me on stage during Queens Pride, along with Tamara Williams from “No Shade” and other special guests. I don’t want to give too much away, but it is going to be different from what I usually do. I imagine that performing at Queens Pride is exciting for you because you were born and raised in Queens. Do you feel more at ease on stage since it is your hometown? The opposite! I get very nervous because this is my hood and I want them to be proud of me. I went to Bayside High School and Queensborough Community College, and I want the kids there to say, “Lovari went here. Cool!” I don’t want them to say, “Lovari went here. We’re embarrassed.” Haha. I still remember walking around school wishing, hoping, praying to one day be on the cover of an album. I used to be so depressed and scared about how I would make it happen. So now, I have to keep making it happen. I’m very grateful.

ALEXIS VAZQUEZ BY SAMARA RIVIERA’S VIVALARIVIERA.COM

A

GET OUT!// ADVERTISE WITH US // GETOUTMAG.COM

FORMER MR. MUNDO LATINO TITLE HOLDER ALEXIS “PAPIITO” VAZQUEZ NOW WINS THE TITLE OF MR. HOMBRES 2014! HE’S A SUPER TALENTED DANCER, SEXY AF AND CAN BE SEEN ALL OVER TOWN AND IN THE WHOLE TRI-STATE AREA. AS A MATTER OF FACT, IN SOMETHING CLOSE TO NOTHING. HE’S A VERY BUSY YOUNG MAN FROM QUEENS, BUT RECENTLY TOOK SOME TIME OUT FOR US HERE AT GET OUT! MAGAZINE TO TELL US A LITTLE BIT ABOUT HIMSELF. ANDA PAPI DINOLOS! How did you get into dancing? As a kid. It’s just always been in my nature. With my Latin background my first genre to learn was salsa, then along the years I grew to acknowledge the other different types of genres such as tap, swing, ballroom, hip hop, contemporary and ballet. Not having the correct guidelines on how to pursue my dance career, I took it as a hobby at first, but growing up I always knew it was my passion. It was recent, a few years ago, when I decided to take the challenge and follow my dreams, which there are no limits to, but also travel the world as the performer/artist I am. Now gogo dancing is a completely different story. It was random and unexpected. Three years ago I just got on a bar started dancing and got a great reaction from the crowd. From there on I’ve been performing in nightclubs down from the LES to midtown, uptown, Queens, New Jersey and even Connecticut. As judgemental and stereotyped as it can be, I just see it as another performance and

entertainment. Was your family supportive? My family was always supportive of all my shows growing up, and happy to say till this day they still are. They’ve always seen the potential in me and have supported my choices to follow my career as a dancer. Even as a gogo dancer they’re all supportive. They all understand it’s something I enjoy doing, and of course it pays the bills. Who have been some of the artists you’ve shared the stage with? Some of my first stage performances were all with my old dance crew, unfortunately broken up, but I’ve expanded my horizons to work with other dance teams in Queens, Harlem and even the Bronx. Working with them alone it’s a lot of artists already, because we are all individual artists who just have the same vision. As far as recording artists, I’m currently on tour with ‘80s freestyle sensation Safire. I’ve worked with Lumidee, Fat Man Scoop, Teyana Taylor, Nire Alldai, Juan Luis (Juancho) and the pop duo


Karmin, whose video has gone viral on MTV hits. Who are your dream artists to share the stage with? If anyone knows me they know how passionate I am for dancing with JLo! Her energy is insane. She’s talented in her own craft, and of course she can dance! But as far as other artists I would love to dance with...well, all - why not!? If there’s one thing I love from this industry it is that you never stop growing as far as skills, knowledge, even persona. You definitely learn something new every day! How were the preparations for Mr. Hombres 2014? With the right team of professionals as far as costumes, makeup and of course dancers to basically cover every category in the pageant, preparations were actually not that hard. Did you think you had a chance at winning? Honestly, in pageants, they’re just like auditions. You never know what they are looking for. I was confident in my promoters, my team of professionals and my consistency throughout the competition. Either the odds were against me or with me, and everything turned out great. But as to the question itself, I did think I had a chance. I had a one in three chance of winning, and I was pretty determined to reach my goal.

How was it when they announced your name as the winner? I mean, I think that’s the best part of the whole process. Each category is being called, and they finally call my name as Mr. Hombres 2014! It’s a big sigh of relief. Even if you think about as good as you did or as consistent as you are, it’s always a shock to hear your name announced. What are your plans as a title holder? To continue my legacy as a male entertainer, representing Hombres Lounge of course. And looking forward to a year of working with the Hombres Lounge staff and giving back to my Queens and LGBT community for all the years of support that they’ve given me. Where can we see you dancing on a weekly basis? On a weekly basis, every Tuesday I’m at Boa in Hoboken, New Jersey, 10 minutes on the PATH from 33rd St., every Wednesday at Castro on

Dyckman St. at the Cockfight party, and every other weekend at Pride Lounge in Forest Hills on Austin Street. Throughout the week I get booked at different locations like Evolution in Queens and Escuelita occasionally, but now you definitely will be seeing me more at my new home Hombres Lounge. Any new projects you’re working on? Currently got my first gig in the West Coast, which I’m very excited about, and touring with Safire. But I’m always in the works, so follow me, stay tuned and look out for more of me in a city or stage near you!

CHRISTOPHER ESTRADA 2 BY ED GARCIA CONDE

014 HAS BEEN A GREAT YEAR FOR RECORDING ARTIST AND ACTOR CHRISTOPHER ESTRADA, WHO HAILS FROM THE BRONX. WITH TWO SINGLES AND VIDEOS ALREADY RELEASED SINCE JANUARY AND A THIRD SET ON THE WAY, IT SEEMS THERE’S NO STOPPING THIS YOUNG, EMERGING ARTIST. 

If Estrada isn’t writing, recording and performing his own music, or taping his music videos, he can be found acting — or even writing lyrics for independent films. 

GET OUT!// ADVERTISE WITH US // GETOUTMAG.COM

Which is why I had to chase him down to ATOF Recording Studios in Hoboken just to get a chance to interview him and talk about his journey thus far, upcoming single releases and love in between. So, Christopher, you’re on fire this year, and it seems like you’re always working on a project! First you released “Music Is My Only Love” in January, then “I Want More” in March, and now you’re working on a slew of singles, including a special summer single. Tell us about “Music Is My Only Love” and “I Want More.” Both songs appear to reflect your personal life (in a way) yet the messages in both songs are polar opposites. Why is that? Why the mixed messages?  I like to shake things up; it keeps it interesting. So I always want to explore different worlds through my music. Nobody wants to live the same day twice. And I want to keep things fresh for my audience.  Your first two singles and videos are so diverse in terms of music, styling, beat and even genres. What else can we expect from the next singles and videos you’re working on? Are you going to keep us guessing at what Christopher Estrada is going to do next?  Absolutely. Each of my songs are

a moment of my life. Sometimes life is incredibly brilliant, and sometimes things are so dark that it stops you in your tracks and makes you fumble for a while until you find your way back to the light. I like surprising people with what I do next.

Not too long ago you were toying around with the idea of a summer single. I heard the early stages of it, and it definitely had the makings of a fun, summer anthem. Where are you with that idea?  It’s called “Goodlife,” and it’s definitely a summer feel-good anthem. I’m working on it now at the studio, and I’m really excited about this song. It’s about wanting to live a good life but never letting go of the dark patches either, because that’s what will propel you forward. My music is autobiographical, and “Goodlife” is where I find the balance between “Music Is My Only Love” and “I Want More.” Rumor has it you’re collaborating with perhaps another artist... or two. Can you tell us who and what it will be?  Nothing is set in stone just yet, but it’s an idea floating around in my mind. I know some really talented people, and I think it would be a lot of fun to have them help me make this song really great. Guess we’ll have to wait and find out!  It will be out very soon. My first two singles are available now on iTunes, and the videos are on YouTube.  Besides your own music, you’ve recently been contacted to write a song for an short, independent film. What’s that like for you?  It’s an alternative rock song being written for an indie film, and when the director shared the story with me, I instantly thought of my guitarist from my first band when I was in high school. It was like time travel for me. It was like

returning to my adolescence, but this time as a grown man. 

I know you’re young and all, but how do you find the time and energy to put all of this together, constantly going from one project to the next and oftentimes working simultaneously on multiple ones?  It’s a sacrifice. I don’t get as much downtime as I would like to have, but there’s a lot that I can accomplish, and I know that if I work hard I can make it all a reality. And I have a lot of help from my incredible team. I couldn’t do it without them.  Which leads me to the next question: What’s your love life like? Dating anyone? How does working a full-time job and working full time on your music allow you to even go there? I mean, you do say you want more, after all.  I’m definitely single. It would be fun to get to know someone, but my schedule makes it tough. I’d be willing to sacrifice to fit love in my life too, but for the right person.  Where do you see yourself by the end of the year? In five years?  I want to be touring the world with my music; that’s the main goal right now, to travel the world and go wherever the music takes me. So far I’ve been to some amazing places. I can’t wait to see what’s next in my life.  Anything you’d like to say to your fans, both new and longtime followers? I love my supporters so much, and I love when they reach out to me. They inspire me to work hard, and I always try to give them something that’s better than my last. I want to thank them for all their support. At the end of the day, that’s why I do what I do.

BINGO MONDAYS WITH MORGAN ROYEL BY CARLOS AGUAYO

O

-69 TAKES ON A WHOLE NEW MEANING AT POSH BAR & LOUNGE AS MORGAN ROYEL TAKES OVER AS MONDAY NIGHT BINGO HOST FROM HER BFF GINGER SNAPT. WE CAUGHT UP WITH MORGAN TO FIND OUT MORE ABOUT ONE OF THE CITY’S FAVORITE BINGO NIGHTS AT HELL’S KITCHEN’S ORIGINAL GAY BAR.

GET OUT!// ADVERTISE WITH US // GETOUTMAG.COM

What is Bingo Mondays all about? It’s a fantastic night, like a Motown sing-along type atmosphere. We just girl chat and have a wonderful night of bingo with wonderful prizes. It’s also a fantastic show. I always want to entertain the crowd and have a good time with them. How is the crowd? Posh is a major “Cheers”type bar. We do have a lot of regulars, but we have a lot of new people stop by too. You never know who’s coming in. New people always embrace the bingo and have a good time. First-timers always come back, because they always enjoy themselves. There are a lot of gay bingos out there, but Posh’s bingo night has been a long-standing event for years. What has made it so successful? I just came on board with the Posh family, but I have been around with my BFF Ginger Snapt before. The girls and the staff really work together, and it becomes a family. The bingo game is really about the entertainers and the host.

They put their heart into it and keep it going every Monday night. It has longevity. Are you the best bingo host ever? I don’t know if I’m the best bingo host, but I am good at what I do! I have been co-hosting for a while with different girls, and I mastered the game. I know how to have a good time with people and get personal with them. I’m not better than anyone, I just get personal and meet great people along the way who become my best friends. I’m just a crazy girl who likes to have a good time! I love making other people smile. Posh is the original gay bar in Hell’s Kitchen. What has made it thrive all these years? Posh is a bar that always welcomes people and lets them be themselves. When

you come in there, you know how to have a good time. Posh is open to different cultures and lifestyles, and that keeps them going.
