The stars were out last night at the opening night of OUTFest in LA. RuPaul, serving some presentational realness, awarded WOW (World of Wonder) Producers, Randy Barbato and Fenton Bailey, Lifetime Achievement Awards. Elementary school crash survivor, and TV Baby Mama, Tori Spelling showed up in a Mumu.
The bois – and a couple girls – worked the bow-tie look (as in, “OUTFest: Where the Bow-Ties Are”), while newly married I-Only-Played-A-Doctor, Neil Patrick Harris walked the red carpet, competing (in our minds) with James St. James who looked like he’d “borrowed” one of Pat Loud’s tourquoise necklaces. And what would a film festival be without a dance performance by the white bois of Palos Verdes? Several fierce ruling divas nodded – in approval or dismay, who knew. Everyone got drunk afterwards in the parking lot behind the Orpheum Theater (blocks away from the largest homeless population in America!) Forget your parking claim ticket? Boo-hoo, did you bring $1.50 for the bus?
Tomas Mournian is the author of the novel, Hidden, available at Amazon.com and great online bookstores everywhere.
