Thursday night’s party for Instinct Magazine’s Leading Men Of 2009 issue was a blast. Editor Mike Wood and publisher JR Pratts were genial hosts, the open bar flowed copiously and the room swelled with bold face names, much to the delight of my loyal companions Dr. Jeff and Father Tony. Jeff intro’d me to some Project Runway dude (Velvet?) and Tony positively squealed when Amanda Lepore arrived on the arm of gay rapper Cazwell. And it was cool to see my mug flashed on the overhead screens, even though the crowd was more interested in hearing Tardy For The Party, in regard to which DJ Bill Coleman did not disappoint. Gay pop artist Ari Gold performed a couple of discofied numbers, after which Father Tony tipsily decided to don Ari’s mirrorball helmet. After leaving the very swank venue, Soho’s Greenhouse, we decided to drop in at Gym Bar in Chelsea, where our Instinct gift bags were promptly stolen off a cocktail table. Ah, well. I didn’t need all that fancy hair product anway. It was a great night and I humbly thank Instinct Magazine and their team.
