I’m super excited for my next presentation of my her-storical slideshow The Drag Explosion. It’s part of the exhibit “Secrets of the Great Pyramid: The Pyramid Cocktail Lounge as Cultural Laboratory” at Howl! Happening Gallery on November 4th.

The exhibit recalls the Pyramid Club when it was the “epicenter of the nascent East Village/Lower East Side artistic community,” from 1981 until the mid ’90s. I’ll be highlighting the weekly party that I used to host called “Channel 69,” which ran from 1990 to 1992.

Pix and memories galore! PLUS video of “Channel 69” by William Comstock and Karel van Aggelen. A multi-media extravaganza!

Hoo-boy, Halloween is on a Saturday this year so it’s going to be an entire weekend of partying!

I’m hosting Bingo on both Halloween Eve and Halloween… and then it’s off into the night!

However, I’m going to try to take it easy. At my advanced age, long journeys into the night are followed by lots of recovery time. I’m too busy for that!

I might just do what I did last Halloween and hang out down the street from my apartment in Times Square! (It’s the only time of year that I actually enjoy going there.)

Perhaps we shall cross paths… Hope so!
