I almost didn't go! I'm starting to understand when younger people speak about social anxiety. I game these things out too much, convincing myself they won't be worth it.
Wilson was just trying to get back and eat his dinner! Well, as long as I don't get sick (it was packed, maskless), it was worth it — and a reminder, as always, that being surrounded by gay and lesbian and bi and trans and other queer people is never to be dismissed as an uplifting experience.
Karine is one of us! Held at the Hilton Midtown here in NYC, the event afforded me the opportunity eat a nice meal across from Trinity the Tuck and Yvie Oddly, to score a selfie with Karine Jean-Pierre and to shoot lovely people like Ariana DeBose, Judith Light and Wilson Cruz.
