Leslie Jordan Is Master Of Ceremonies At Sex Work Awards

Leslie Jordan HookiesWe’ll take any excuse to watch our favorite senior gay, Leslie Jordan, host an event. And we cannot wait for this one: the 2014 International Escort Awards, also known as “The Hookies.” Okay!

It’s all part of the kickoff for Black Party Expo, an annual celebration of art, music, fashion and sex. (Emphasis on the sex.)

Leslie will host the show on March 21, featuring awards in a dozen categories, including Best Newcomer, Best Daddy and the night’s top prize, Mr. International Escort 2014. Get your VIP tickets now for private table dances, and a “VIP viewing area,” which we hope is like a naked gay petting zoo.

“Having hired my first guy at 14 (gave a boy my lunch money out in the woods) I am truly honored and excited to be hosting this prestigious event,” Leslie Jordan’s quoted as saying in some press materials. “Let those boys know that Little Sugar Daddy is in the house and looking for someone to spoil!”

The following night is Rites XXXV: The Black Party at the Roseland Ballroom, which expects 5,000 attendees and promises “strange live acts.” Acts of carnality, we assume. If you don’t have a date, don’t worry: an escort shouldn’t be too hard to find.

    Escort awards? I understand how everyone can watch the same movie and vote on it, but what are the grounds for voting for best escort?

    Yay for sex workers, more power to them, they serve a funciton in society, and good for you if you can use them. I have a hard time with the concept personally. For me the whole point of sex is being wanted by definition sex workers don’t want you, they just want your money.

    Escort Awards?! We’re now praising those who sell their bodies for money? This definitely makes me ashamed to even be human at this point.

    @Tookietookie123: “We’re now praising those who sell their bodies”… Try reading a history book or a novel or going to a museum. Some of the most celebrated personages in history have been whores . . . sometimes called “favorites” or “courtesans” or “models” — all euphemisms for lovers who were bought.

    @crowebobby: Amen! It’s a fine tradition running back to Aspasia and Pericles.

    @Tookietookie123: Exactly. I wonder how many male prostitutes Leslie Jordan has paid for?
