Getting a glow on...

The only way I can (since I don't drink) at the Oxwood inn back in September.

Tit for Tatania

just some quick pics outside the Oxwood with  Tatania Montilla.  One of the nicest and truly beautiful girls in the scene., she is  definitely one of my  bosom buddies!


Raising a red flag

 not really, just some of the decor at the Palms, as seen in an attempt to be creative with a mirror shot.  Red flags don't get raised there, only spirits  (in glasses and otherwise)

With friends like Kimora, and Mikayla doing the shown, mine were lifted all the way up on to the bar :)

..you glad I went to the Oxwood and saw my knock out friends Aubrey and Vanessa? In addition to headlining at the Oxwood,  Aubrey is the host of  Transfixed, the new Thursday night at the beloved old Club Cobra, in North Hollywood.  Its's doors have been open  for a couple of months now and is doing well, with good crowds and a great show.  Vanessa is a great performer in her own right and  is one of  Aubrey's Femme Fatale's, who help everyone at Cobra to have a good time by circulating with drink specials.   If you were a fan of the old Goddess at Cobra, you really should check this new club at its old night and venue soon.  This is not a knock on Goddess which  is still going strong on Monday's at MJ's in Silverlake, .hosted by the ever gorgeous Leslie Munroy.

 and if you were asking who's there behind you, that's Scott, of Scott and Ben's blog, who let himself into this picture, without knocking :)

Au revoir Angelina

In French, Au revoir doesn't mean good bye, it means until I see you again.  Sadly, my friend Angelina Torres is moving from LA to Chicago.  While this is a good step for her and for her career, its a sad one for me and all the friends she made here in LA.  While I will miss seeing her as often as I have since she moved here, I know we'll stay in touch and I''ll see her  again whenever she visits.


Premium Chanels

a pic with my very good friends Christy Girlington and Linda Evangelipstik, aka the Chanel Twins.  They are famous in the drag/club kid world and have been on TV and in movies many times . I dropped in on my way to the Palms for Christy's 90's prom themed birthday party and they did it up, as usual, with a premium on style.

just some quick little black dress pics from a fun Wednesday at Trans Wednesday at the Oxwood back in mid-September.


Falling Between Two Stools

fall between two stools  (mainly British
if something falls between two stools, it fails because it is neither one type of thing nor another and if someone falls between two stools, they fail because they try to combine two different types of thing that cannot be combined

I have to confess, I wasn't familiar with this expression and stumbled on while I was trying to find something cute or clever to say about this picture.  But I was struck by it and how it seems to apply to me and my life, which is complex, to say the least.  I'm always trying to be too many things to too many people and never sure if success at one isn't somehow failure to another. But if failing is falling, success is standing and I seem to manage to stay on my feet.  As I did here, despite adequate seating, at the Oxwood on a fun Saturday back in September.


Linkin Blogs

some pics from this years Miss Bienestar pageant are on Scott and Ben's Photographic blog.  Bienestar is a leading social service provider to the Latina LGBT community, and their annual pageant is a signature event and one of the many right on things they do each year.  I'm pleased and proud to support it and to call many who serve or who are served by it my friends.
