For this year’s Gay Soiree, I had the privilege of watching Jeze Bel shine in this glorious Glinda get-up, while I stepped out in a houndstooth suit, corset, and ridiculously-heeled boots. All in all, it was a hoot and a half, and a badly-needed dose of glamour and fun in this never-ending winter.
I switched it up from the black lace underwear I wore to last year’s event to something much warmer, seeing as how I froze my lacy ass off that first time around. Wool is a much better choice for a chilly evening in early March. As for the venue, it was in one of those hidden jewels of downtown Albany – in a space that I believe had once been a bank (as so many gorgeous buildings once were). Thanks to the atmosphere and the Wizard of Oz theme, it was a magical night that felt like stepping into a Technicolor fun-house. I’m already looking forward to next year’s event.Back to Blog
