I have a massive NYC LGBT Pride March pictorial post coming, but in the meantime — I'm wondering if hot model/dancer Seth Fornea, one of gaydom's most famous ginger sides of beef, is now a married man.
I ran into Seth and dancer Hugo — both of whom worked the biggest all-nude party in Adonis history Saturday night (35 naked dancers) — at the March, and Hugo made sure I took a picture of his sign because he said Seth had proposed. The sign says they're already married.
Not sure what to think, and wasn't aware Seth and dancer Jared Bradford LeBlanc, who were longtime boyfriends, had broken up.
Good girls go bad.

Proving that Pride is more than just a boozy month of fun and underwear — not that that isn't enough at times — the Hetrick-Martin Institute (the recognized leader in advocacy for LGBTQ youth) is encouraging us to stop and think about what Pride means to us as individuals, via its #PrideIs campaign.
HMI CEO Thomas Krever says:
As our community faces a new wave of challenges to the progress we have made, we are all painfully aware that rights are not to be taken for granted and Pride Is something we must continue to stand up for. This work cannot happen by any one group of individuals — it only happens when we work together as a community. Pride Is is an emphatic statement about what we demand of our nation and each other, and a way for our community of allies to stand beside us and show their support.
Show your support for this great org on social media with the #PrideIs hashtag, following in the hash-steps of supporters like Whoopi Goldberg, Zachary Quinto and more.
Friday night's viewing party for the Season 9 finale of RuPaul's Drag Race here in NYC was a smash-hit, with a line around the block. Considering half of the top talent in the Top 4 were New Yorkers — and fellow New Yorker Alexis Michelle was in the house and in a dress, too — where else would RDR stage the ultimate party for its most-watched season?
Better yet, it was a mostly lovey-dovey affair, a much-needed healing after that circular firing squad on the reunion episode! I guess everyone just missed congeniality so went back to it.
I couldn't stay for the performances, but I did get to chat with all the girls, plus I grabbed Bob the Drag Queen, Bianca Del Rio and Peppermint's best girlfriend Laverne Cox for some great shots.
Speaking of shots, Bianca was hounding Valentina backstage, cackling in her ear, “You'll never see or hear from her again!” about her act. I heard Bianca brought up Valentina's Selena reference onstage more than once, too.
But even though Valentina was ripped a new one for her aggressive fans, she was gracious with me when I asked her about that scorching reunion episode, saying she is still processing the gang-up but acknowledges some of her fans were going too far and were attacking the other queens in mean-spirited ways. She seemed totally sincere in her desire to put out positivity going forward.
Oh, and she looked stunning. Girl definitely didn't go home this season due to her looks.
Shea Coulée was in good spirits and looked better than ever, rocking a “Nothing Really Matters” bob (sad, because during our game of FUCK, MARRY, KILL with Madonna, Cher and Gaga (see above), she chose to kill — gulp — Madonna!). Shea said the reunion had been good for closure, and she didn't seem pissed off at all anymore.
Nina Bo'Nina Brown ... didn't come out. Sigh. Why, girl??? We love you!
Peppermint was in full-on Weezy Jefferson mode — looking regal even when she suffered a nip slip. (I gallantly pointed it out, so to speak, so she could avoid any photo faux-pas.) Pep was really excited and nervous; it felt to me like she would win. I even had her tape a thank-you speech just in case!
She is just such a nice person. I have to say, even though I don't think it was so awful that Valentina won Miss Congeniality, Peppermint probably deserved it even more.
Sasha Velour was wired, too. Her red eyeglasses were giving me Sasha Jessy Raphael, and her laugh gave away her giddiness at being so close to the crown. As we all know by now (and if we don't, too bad, I don't honor spoilers forever), Sasha wound up even closer to the crown when she won the whole damn thing later in the evening.
RuPaul said in a statement:
The world needs drag now more than ever. Sasha Velour represents the future of drag. Her charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent arouse and inspire a generation of young people to live boldly, act up and paint with all the colors of the rainbow.
Sasha herself said:
Now more than ever, drag stands as a beacon of joy and strength for queer people. It always reminds me to dream big and dress up by my own rules, to be serious and ridiculous and childish and brilliant! Take my advice: if you want to be queen, just make your own crown!
My fave all season was Valentina, but I thought Trinity Taylor should win as a sort of overall classic drag queen with humor and talent and gender-illusion cred. That said, who could be mad with any of the Top 4 winning?
Alexis knew she wasn't going to win as one of only two non-Top 4 girls there, so she was utterly relaxed, jumping into a fun pic with Bianca and Bob and looking splended in a Kris Jenner way. (Hey, it worked for her on the show!)
Keep reading for videos of each girl who didn't win this season speaking directly to her fans ...
It was a massive undertaking a year in the making, but my oral history of the sort of late (it could still publish, still has a site), often great Playgirl Magazine is here — it pubbed today at Esquire.com, a wonderful placement for me.
It would mean a lot to me if you would click here and visit the story and comment positively if you like it.
I did about 70 interviews, so the amount necessarily left out is staggering — let's just say this long piece is actually only the tip of the penis.
I especially loved the stories of the star models, like Lorenzo Lamas and Christopher Atkins and the fabulous George Maharis, who I bet is still hot as he approaches 90, as well as the stories of the non-famous men, who didn't necessarily know what they were getting into back in the day.
Thanks in advance for reading and sharing.
