Bianca Del Rio as Eva Perón
Bianca Del Rio graces the cover of Next Magazine's 2012 Summer Yearbook in her gorgeous Evita dress, shot by Kevin Thomas Garcia.
We were lucky to be able to shoot in Central Park on a gorgeous day and the photos turned out amazingly well. I took a lot of behind the scenes footage which will be released soon after the magazine hits stands this Friday so stay tuned for all the whacky adventures we had off camera!

Jake Gyllenhaal, Michelle Gomez, Annie Funke, and Brian F. O’Byrne
Thanks to my best friend, Jason, I saw my first Broadway play this weekend. We went to see the Roundabout Theatre Company's off-Broadway production of If There Is I Haven't Found It Yet, the story of how a dysfunctional family comes together to solve their problems. The play, by British playwright Nick Payne, received positive reviews in London in 2009 and now stars Jake Gyllenhaal, Michelle Gomez, Annie Funke, and Brian F. O'Byrne.

Liza Minnelli and Alan Cumming performing together on Fire Island... is quite possibly the gayest thing I've had the amazing privilege to experience, and glitter practically flies out of my mouth every time I speak. Daniel Nardicio brought the pair out to the Ice Palace in Cherry Grove on Saturday, August the 4th for which, needless to say, myself and every other queen saved the date upon first hearing of the event. The tickets sold out before anyone could even say "Judy" so Daniel thankfully added a second showing, to which my friends and I got VIP tickets so we could be as close to Liza as legally possible.
