"Don't Dream It, Be It!" I had a decadently delightful evening as Frank N Furter the luscious "Sweet Transvestite" in a special celebratory screening/performance of the camp classic "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" at the historic Harsimus Cemetery national treasure at 435 Newark Avenue in Jersey City, New Jersey. The extraordinarily fun evening took place on October 17th. Had a blast with Rolanda Rose, who made a fierce Magenta and actor recording/artist Lovari and many others. "Give yourself over to absolute pleasure!" is a perfect quote from the film where the huge packed crowd had best most exciting time ever. The event was presented by the "House of Happiness" North Jersey's source for The Rocky Horror Picture Show since 1998.

A wonderful time was had by all at a very special event called "Angels VS Demons" at Club Therapy at 348 West 52nd Street in the Broadway district of New York City on October 7th. The grand gala was a birthday celebration of Lord Ratchet Bucket (Boo'Kay) and a fundraiser for PFLAG (Parents Family/Friends of Lesbians And Gays) and was hosted and presented by the fabulous Imperial Court of New York, the group that puts the "fun" in "fundraising" The Emcee for the stage show was Emperor X Gabrielle Della Nottte, ICNY's Midnight Gothic Raven Monarch. Also present were reigning Majesties Empress XXVIII Twinkle Montgomery and Emperor XXIII Tony Monteleone along with Emperor XX Vanity Society, Empress XXII Bea, Crown Princess Madison Mansfield, Doris Dear, Rob Ordonez and many other royals.

The event had everything a good cherub or a naughty demon could want, including fabulous live entertainment, devilishly decadent desserts, a silent auction, raffles with grand prizes, dancing, heavenly cocktails and good fun. In keeping with the theme, most of us got dolled up as divine angels or devils, demons and fallen dark angels. I wore my red hot horns as a she-devil, 'cause when I'm "bad" I'm better!

I had the most sizzling time making a special appearance at the hotly anticipated opening night art exhibition gala and book release premiere that is "re-branding the ginger male stereotype" called Red Hot 100 at the Bosi Contemporary Gallery at 48 Orchard Street in SoHo New York City on September 3rd. The gallery was filled with photographic images of sexy and bare-chested red-headed men by renowned photographer Thomas Knights. AND the party was crawling with the men who posed for the exhibition who were as absolutely delightful in the flesh as they were in their pictures! Instead of my usual blond bombshell look, I invoked my childhood idol "The Movie Star" Ginger from "Gilligan's Island" to add some female redness to the muscled red-haired studded spectacle. Red-headed guys are often looked upon as weak and ugly and their uniqueness often makes them targets for bullying growing up. This electrifying exhibition will certainly challenge that wrong view and absolutely proves that red-head men have that power, punch, handsome charm and sizzling sex appeal. I had a red hot time mingling and flirting with all the ginger guys and their admirers including Daniel Newman from tv's "The Vampire Diaries", Rugby Star Dean Glasenberg, models Ken Bek, Jonny Burt, Alan Godd, Seth Forina and others after I made my entrance walking the Orange Carpet.
