Tag Archives: Clubs
Honey, back in the day you couldn’t go to a club without finding a cigarette vending machine (which was always out of Marlboro Lights) and a condom vending machine. Hell, even your tampon and perfume machines in the ladies room. Now they are stocking the clubs with a shoe vending machine. Yup. After a drunken night of partying the last thing you want to worry about is doing the walk of shame in six-inch pumps. No worries, Rollashoe is here. Flats in a fix just for you.
Every Tuesday and Thursday drag journalist and downtown legend Linda Simpson posts Every Night in Drag “a historical photo essay documenting a fantastic New York City queendom from the late 1980s to the late 1990s.” From top, left: an off-night Leigh Bowery in futuristic Benny Hill drag; the late, great Page at the Central Park zoo; Francine and makeup artist extraordinaire Kabuki Starshine (responsible for Katy Perry’s “Extraterrestrial”); Lady Bunion and Lurleen; Antony from Antony and the Johnsons and Linda Simpson; Whitney and Juan Suarez-Botas (the inspiration for the Antonio Banderas character in Philadelphia) on the set of a My Comrade photo shoot. Fascinating, terrifying, hysterical, and ultimately incredibly poignant.
Tonight is the two year anniversary of Mr Black Los Angeles. Here are some hot topics of what happened on opening night. I wonder how much has changed?
Is Larva still working an avant-garde American gothic look? Will James pop a button and Lenora come to the rescue? Will Alexis Arquette be thankful? Will Trevor Wayne let us see his penis? Will Blake Jacobs guest spot? Does Thairin still look like Patrick Swazey? Will Josh Peace have erect nipples? Will Diana share her lips with James? What will Santino be wearing this year? Will James find power? Did Danny’s liver get drained? Will Daniel Franzese play fashion ping pong again? Will Loren, Gregory and James still love each others? And most important of all…will James see more than 87 penises?
