"And if you threw a party
Invited everyone you ever knew…"
Where: The Stonewall Bar in Greenwich Village
When: This past weekend.
What: For the second year in a row, the once-in-a-while bash Victoria paid homage to the beloved sitcom The Golden Girls. The party glorifies female female impersonators—“faux queens”—and was awash with Roses, Dorothys, Blanches and Sophias and their devoted admirers.

Thank you for being a friend!
Golden Girls goes gay!
As the clock neared 4am, My Comrade editor Linda Simpson (That's me!—I hosted the party's show) moseyed down Christopher Street with Daniel and John to the Hanger Bar for a nightcap.
Bartender Jack was a golden guy!
What a fabulous night, pussycat!
