WHAT YOU’LL WIN
Two VIP access tickets courtesy of CharityBuzz to the live event at the Andaz West Hollywood on Nov. 12, which grants you access to an open bar from Absolut, delicious gourmet appetizers, gift bags, a up-close-and personal viewing of select celebrity customized prints, and the the opportunity to enjoy the cityscape from Andaz’s rooftop cabana beds. And did we mention Fairey will be DJing?

We particularly like transgender activist and Navy vet Calpernia Addams’s contribution, and this one from actor Peter Paige. Oh, and this one from Chad Allen (pictured).

Their works will be auctioned off through CharityBuzz.com from Nov. 10-Dec. 9, with proceeds benefiting FAIR, which is fighting for marriage equality in California and across the country.

And to kick things off, a selection of the posters will debut Thursday, Nov. 12, on the roof of the Andaz West Hollywood in Los Angeles. And we’d like to see you there!

      Umm, excuse me, Fairey? Didn’t he just admit – because he got caught and sued – to stealing the photo of Obama for his artwork AND lying about it? Doesn’t sound like a very good choice Queerty…

      Shepard has been stealing photos and artwork for YEARS. Why would Obama be different?

      Its funny, I’ve been agreeing with Queerty for months that HRC’s cocktail parties and sucking up to politicians and celebrities is a waste of our time and resources.

      Now, what does Queerty do? They run a contest to promote a cocktail party where all of us good fags can go suck up to politicians and celebrities.

      Seriously,

      What. The. Fuck?

      If I win, does that mean I get to kick the ladder out from under his poser ass?

      Ah yes, the pure plagiaristic “style” of Shepard Fairey (the recent ripoff “artist(?)” of those over-touted Obama posters).

      Shhhhhh…don’t tell anyone…but he steals…outright steals artwork from other artists and then calls it his own.

      Check out the link below for an expose’ as well as blatant examples of his plagiarism.
