Bruce LaBruce’s OTTO Premieres In NYC Followed By A Hot-To-Trot PARTY

NYC’s cool crowd converged on the Museum of Modern Art last night for a screening of director Bruce LaBruce’s eagerly awaited gay zombie movie, Otto; or Up With Dead People (see our feature story for all the juicy details).

A party afterwards, sponsored by Out Magazine, at the chic basement lounge D’Or, was a horny and friendly affair as the scenesters mixed, mingled and raved about the film.




Damn paparazzi!  The flashbulbs are too much for Bruce, but not for Otto costar Gio Black Peter.

What’s a party without Ladyfag?  She and Bruce are old friends from their native city, Toronto.

A few revelers opted to wear clown masks.  Kinky!

Earlier in the week, MoMa was also the site of a smashing performance by party guest Lady Rizo.

The entertainment included the Homophones, who contributed to Otto’s soundtrack.

Avant-garde movie parties are always the best!
