The Charity Circuit

Last night I was invited to attend a charity event called "Skool'd" - a benefit for LGBT youth in need - at the Bo Concept Store on Madison Ave & East 30th Street. It was to honor and benefit two organizations. The Ali Forney Center; who's mission is to help homeless LGBT youth be safe and become independent as they move from adolescence to adulthood, and The Trevor Project; which is more of a helpline geared toward helping those in crisis, or those wanting information on how to help someone in crisis. Note that it is the only national 24-hour toll free suicide prevention hotline aimed at gay and questioning youth.

Matt Paco (pictured with me) of MTV was the producer of the event, and he did a remarkable job at getting all the fabulousness there. Miss Nita Aviance was turning it with the music, Milan was sporting a lovely fidero hat, and mistress Edy was there to host the evenings festivities. It was hot!

Susan Cagle (pictured) - as seen on MTV VMA's Pre-show, turned out an amazing performance of some songs from her latest album "the subway recordings". Very grunge! Check her out at
