New York (NJ & CT)

New York (NJ & CT) (33)

From the swanky uptown, to the grit of the Village and the swagger of Chelsea,  the city that never sleeps has a vibrant transgender community here in the Big Apple -- with many trans-friendly venues and events. So too does the surrounding metro area, including the NY boroughs, New Jersey, and Connecticut.  On these pages we bring you coverage of the people, the places, and events for the New York-Metro area!

Lypsinka In The Window

September 8th: The Legendary Lysinka to perform in the Bergdorf Goodman Windows for Fashion's Night Out 

I first saw Lypsinka when I reviewed her show LYPSINKA, AS I LAY LIP-SYNCHING!  I had heard of her, of course, but had never before seen her.  I was blown away:  she ws nothing like the blasse diva-in-her-own-mind-diva I had seen a hundred times. Lysinka was unique, different, and brillant.  


Linda Simpson Up Close

Linda Simpson Meet Linda Simpson; journalist, writer, emcee and part of the NYC "in" crowd.

Linda Simpson is petite, pretty and larger than life. The little girl from Minnesota has been a huge influence on the T-Scene in the biggest city on earth and is a more impressive tourist attraction on the New York City landscape than Lady Liberty.


A Queen in Paradise

The Annual Miss Paradise Pageant is a local good time. Edie, this years Emcee was fabulous!

Every year the Miss Paradise Pageant provides glamour, talent, laughs andcamaraderie at Club Paradise in Asbury Park, New Jersey. This year’s theme Broadway in Paradise did not disappoint, and the hostess of the evening Edie was, as always, fabulous!


The Ultimate Drag Off

Drag OffPart drag show, part game show and a lot of circus side show!

As I entered Dillons Lounge it was quite deceiving; at first glance it seemed like your ordinary run-of-the-mill bar with its extremely cozy setting. However, as I made my way to the back of the bar I entered the performance area and it was quite spacious.


Valley For The Dolls: a land of disco plenty!

Happy ValleyThere may be no more appropriately named spot on the New York nightlife landscape than Happy Valley. Located in the unassuming Flatiron District on 27th Street between 5th and Madison, this club REALLY resides in the nostalgic good-time glow of the Studio 54, platform heels and shag carpet ’70s.


Invasion 2009

Invasion boatMakeup, wild costumes, heels and fun in the sun. I’m speaking of the annual Invasion of the Pines which takes place on the 4th of July every summer out at Fire Island.

The day begins out at Cherry Grove where drag queens and kings, crossdressers, transsexuals and folks from just about every other walk of life come together to celebrate what is now a 30 year old tradition.

LaurenOne of South Beach’s most glamorous women, gender outlaw Lauren Foster, will be a part of the Miami Beach delegation during NYC’s Pride Parade this weekend. This marks her first official appearance as an out and proud member of the transgendered community.
