How You Know The Out NYC’s Nightlife-Hotel-Spa Complex Is Good For The Gays

We’ve already been over how the proprietors of The Out NYC — next fall’s new $20 million-ish complex that will have the word “OUT” scrawled in huge letters in the windows — can manage not to screw things up. But how can they really make sure New York’s gays welcome a space that tries to be all things (dance club! wedding chapel! late night bites!) to all gays? By giving, as MmmmMusto reports, “transsexual icon Amanda Lepore … a free permanent hotel room there.” For now she’s just “in talks” to receive one. I’m not sure if the Axel Hotel would write it off as a business expense or a charitable contribution.

    I don’t know why, but I just adore her.

    Boy, am I glad I am so over all this shit. And that Amanda Lepore is a mess!

  • Qjersey

    Amanda Lepore is only an icon in her own mind. It may be an act, but she comes across as stupid, ill informed and the epitome of every bad stereotype about females.

    Um, I used to be pretty good friend with Amanda when I lived in NYC and she is by far the nicest girl in town. Not once did I ever see her be rude to anyone and doing nothing but being super nice when people came up to her asking for a picture with her. It’s amazing people who will never really affect the world in general are ragging on her. As someone who once considered her a good friend you guys really need to piss off.

    I hate LePore, she’s the worst misogynist.
