Last summer during Gay Pride Weekend in New York City I had the chance to experience my first Matinee party and I had a blast! For that reason, this year I was really looking forward to attending this sweaty, sunny, sexy, party!
What better way to kick-off Pride Weekend than dancing your ass off on the sand at Governors Island? Plus you get to be surrounded by some of the most gorgeous guys in town, while enjoying a stunning view of the city.
My friends and I arrived around 6:00 pm to Governors Beach Club and the party was already in full swing. As soon as I walked in I changed into my speedo and I was ready to werk! With a drink in hand obviously!
I made my way to the front of the stage, snapping pictures of every hot guy that crossed my path: Jayden Tyler, Blue Kennedy, Franco DiLuzio, the list goes on! Dios mio! I even ran into some
queens old friends from Dallas.
On stage Rhea Litre, Chase Hostler, ‘the Meatballs’ and Nik Ripley among other talented dancers gave us CHOKE clothing realness! The costumes were amazing – black and yellow leather pants and underwear, shinny leggings and futuristic masks.
Backstage the gorgeous Natascha Bessez and her team were getting ready for her surprise performance! The 26 year-old actress, singer and former Miss New York Teen USA, opened up with “Clarity.” Uh-ho! The gays went nuts…
She also sang “Warrior” and “Never Alone,” closing with a remix of “Miracle.” By that time the crowd was ecstatic! Including me. I’m surprised I even got some good shoots because I was twerking it!
I went backstage one more time to get my picture taken with the beautiful Natascha and to sip my last cocktail before heading back to the city. Oh! I had a wonderful KIKI… What about you guys? If you were there, comment below and tell me all about your Matinee experience, I want to hear it all! Including the naughty details…
Not just a pretty face
