Check out my new website: www.stopgracechu.com. As you can probably tell, I’ve been super busy photographing events for a bunch of event promoters and covering the NYC scene and writing recaps for AfterEllen. Stopgracechu.com is an attempt to organize everything into one spot.
The Dinah 2011 is slated for March 30th – April 3rd this year, and it should be just as insane, if not more, than last year. We caught up with Mariah Hanson, grand poobah of Club Skirts The Dinah and asked her a few questions about this year’s festivities.

Wondering why New York City hasn’t discovered the modern invention called the snowplow? I heard Brooklyn and Queens is still buried. Sucks for you, but here are a couple of gaytastic videos to help you bide your time as you wait for the bailout.
Basically, the economy still sucks, and we’ve all held onto our day jobs, but our groups are understaffed and we’re overworked. O’Neill has been working 15 hour days, 7 days a week. No joke.

WHATTUP 212, 718 and 646. 347 HAAAAAYY. BROOOOKLYN IN DA HOOOUUUUSE. WHERE MY WILLIAMSBURG BITCHES AT? WASSUP TO MY HOMIES ON THE WESSIDE! CHELSEA KEEPIN’ IT DIRRRTTY! VOLI – THUG PASSION 2010!” except I pretend that it’s an article. Listen, this article is just a shoutout too. But it’s full of goodness, so read it.
Let’s start with junior high. Junior high is a festering pile of dung that even other festering piles of dung won’t even hang out with. That’s right: junior high is like the dalit of festering piles of dung.
Hang in there. It gets better. Trust me.
Where have we been? Right here in NYC gallivanting with lesbian blogging royalty and plotting the destruction of the universe by signing onto a socialist, anti-family political movement that encourages women to leave their husbands, kill their children, practice witchcraft, destroy capitalism and become lesbians. Also, we had beer!
