The new Bronx LGBTQ Center is working hard to re-build it’s organization and to do so, they’re throwing a Valentine’s Vamp gala fundraiser scheduled for Saturday, February 9th from 5:30 pm to 11:00 pm at club Rebel NYC (251 West 30th Street, Manhattan).
“Valentine’s Day is a celebration of unconditional love, making it very appropriate to also honor the LGBTQ community, as well as the caring and nurturing that can be found there. A Center that provides support and a safe space is so much-needed in every borough of our Metropolitan area. LGBTQ culture and community is found way beyond the boundaries of Manhattan,” said Lady Clover Honey, one of the event’s hostesses.
Patti LuPune’s smash hit club act is back at 54 Below this weekend, check here for tickets. It is truly a must-see as I described in my review this summer.
Tomorrow night, Friday, September 14, I will be DJing at the Lush & Lively cocktail hour at the Time Out New York Lounge at New World Stages, 340 West 50th Street (between 8th & 9th Ave) from 6:30 PM to 9:00 PM. The music emphasizes horns and strings, so there will be jazz (classic and “nu”), latin, international orchestral and big band pop (like this Northern Soul-inspired 1987 barnstormer from Scottish duo Hue & Cry, huge hit in the UK, didn’t even dent the charts here) and – of course – lots and lots of disco. The Cosmo special is only $3 from 6:30PM to 7:00 PM, and there are $5 drink specials until 9:00 PM.
