Go-Go Harder Crowned Best Male Performer in London // Justin Luke Enters the Drag Race // Sherry Vine and Cazwell Take on Fairytale Lounge
(Go-Go Harder being crowned in London)
Having successfully conquered New York’s boylesque scene with his adorkable shows, charming wit and smokin’ bod, Go-Go Harder is taking his strip-tastic act international. At last week’s World Burlesque Games in London, Harder was crowned Best International Male Performer. “I'd just like to thank Liberace, Midnight Cowboy and Brokeback Mountain for the inspiration,” the studly stripper told friends and fans via Facebook.
This week, Fairytail Lounge is launching a couple brand new parties. Joey Israel gave us the deets on the latest additions to the newish Hell’s Kitchen bar’s weekly lineup. Cazwell heats up Thursdays starting tomorrow night with the all-gay hip hop party, Swagerella. Then on Sunday, Sherry Vine takes on DJ duties, playing requests like a human jukebox for a quarter each at Tranny Request Live. Israel tells us he’s got some other new nights in the works, so keep an eye out for more big announcements from Fairytail this summer.
Justin or GiGi?
We hear Mother’s Day was a real drag for Justin Luke. The BoiParty promoter was set to appear at Paige Turner’s Sunday night show Slurp at Vlada to promote his new novel Gulliver Takes Manhattan. But instead of showing up for an ordinary chat about the book, Luke decided to take advantage of Slurp’s drag show format, appearing for the first—and, he insists, last—time as his alter ego, GiGi Twenty. The newly minted queen performed “When You’re Good to Mama” and may have even walked away on her size 12 heels with a new respect for drag queens. “Good luck looking fabulous and fierce with your face feeling like it's covered in a gallon of cement. Good luck walking gaily as your dick is pushed back so far it's somewhere in your butt crack," he wrote on his blog. Check out Luke’s full take on the experience and a video of GiGi’s performance at JustinPlusOne.com.
