Last November, we celebrated Gay Pride, vogueing and NYC ballroom culture in Palm Springs with Miracles Club, Mike Q, Total Freedom, Beyondadoubt, Isaiah Esquire, Raja and the House of Xtravaganza at our annual Hands On queer music and arts festival. We’ll be reveling in underground queer culture, film and art this fall at Ace Hotel & Swim Club during the first weekend in November — save the date, and keep an eye out for more details soon.
Saturday night of Hands On : Shade during Palm Springs Pride, we held a vogueing ball hosted by Hector Xtravaganza of The House of Xtravaganza and judged by Raja of RuPaul’s Drag Race and friends — MikeQ provided the soundtrack, The Miracles Club wailed, and Beyondadoubt got Isaiah Tillman into contortions. We took a break to watch Paris is Burning in the Clubhouse — apparently everyone has the script memorized seeing as how it was like a Rocky Horror Picture Show screening with impromptu live accompaniment. Shots from our Sunday pool party with The Miracles Club and MikeQ up shortly. Stay tuned.
