Bianca Del Rio Inspects James Franco’s Jockstrap-Clad Ass For Charity

Broadway Bares 24: Rock Hard!, New York, America - 22 Jun 2014James Franco poked fun at his own “topless selfies” on stage during Broadway Bares: Rock Hard! last weekend, just moments before RuPaul‘s Drag Race winner Bianca Del Rio ripped off his pants to reveal a perky bum in a jock strap — a sight that brought thunderous applause from the crowd and at least four gay men to their knees.

The cheeky fun was all part of the annual stage production that raises millions of dollars in charitable funds for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, an organization that employs the theater to raise money for HIV and AIDS-related causes. This year’s performance showcased over 150 dancers and noted figures including Del Rio, Franco, war hero Alex Minsky, and Cabaret star Alan Cumming.

This year’s show took place on Sunday at Manhattan’s Hammerstein Ballroom. Attendees paid anywhere from $75 to $1,000 to get in and shove donations in the waistbands of the scantily-clad dancers.

Franco received a bit of applause when he took the stage for his number, though it’s safe to say Bianca’s standing ovation was ten times longer and more impressive. Their skit was something about James Franco needing a “strip search” before getting into the venue, but everyone is so drunk and horny at these things I don’t think anyone noticed a plot beyond James Franco’s jockstrap.

    I will start caring about events like these when they start sending some of the money to places other than these cities that bring hundreds of thousands of dollars and share none with the smaller towns and cities who struggle just to make sure that those with this virus can barely eat.

    Franco’s ass looks a bit worn and deflated, he looks like he’s having fun though.

    Predictable. Queerty covers Broadway Bares through the lens of the cis white homosexual perspective. Nary a peep has been uttered about the Free the Nipple movement, but a white guy showing his ass…of course.

    @Ringo: LOL…

    @JaredNorthcutt30: You’re so right…..HOW DARE a site mention anything other than what you think is important….The injustice…Oh evil to have a perspective from anything other than a non cis white homosexual male….the most evil of all the genders that should never ever ever be aloud to have a perspective or say anything cause they’re just so….EVIL!!!! AND they were being light hearted… these HITLER’S!!!

    Why not write a post about “free the nipple” and submit it or post a link to your blog where it can be seen.

    @out91394: You make a very good point. After moving back to the Midwest from 20some years in NYC and PHL it’s so hard to get funding for many things here while larger cities seem to squander a lot of the money they raise. You don’t really see it when you are in those cities cause there is so much good happening with the money too. Those cities also have such large numbers off people suffering that they really need large amounts of money. I’ve started working with my local RED project and LGBT Network (all volunteer) to see what I can do to raise money and encourage others to do also. I’m taking a cue from my experience and what larger cities do. You won’t change what the big cities do but you can barrow, steal ideas from them and make a difference in your own community. Why not get a campaign started to ask Broadway Bares for help? Just trying to be solution oriented. Good luck.
