I went to the CHULO Underwear NYFW show last night at the Ritz bar here in NYC, an event intended to raise money for several orgs that help marginalized gay youth.
One of the striking models, pre-show
I was in the photo pit area, which was across from the VIPs, outdoors on the lanai (shut up, Rose). The idea was the models would parade their fine asses fashionable undergarments through the venue, down the steps, past us, into the VIPs, strike a pose, then double back.
This didn't really happen with the women who were modeling Harlem's Heaven Hats first; great hats, but the women—who were not wearing much more than hats—seemed shy to really mingle. One male spectator said, “Come to Daddy!” at one point, so maybe that didn't help.
Patsy, a $25 VIP ticket doesn't buy you the right to interfere with perfection!
When it was time for the boys, they picked up right away that they were meant to walk the length of the floor, perhaps egged on by a pair of embarrassing Ab Fab women who sat on the steps (literally on the floor, slightly impeding access for the models) and demanded selfies from each model each time he walked past ... during the show. It was infuriating! It was just beyond tacky behavior.
The show itself was great—gorgeous dudes in must-have undies, including some jockstraps.
Check out some video above!
I'm with you, boys.
I mean, caption the above photo! (He's actually a sweet guy whose dream is to be the first out gay UFC fighter. Help him out!)
