Fork On The Left, Knife In The Back

Last night I attended the launch party for gossip legend Michael Musto's above-titled book, where hundreds of bold-face names collided with hipsters, scenesters, and queensters all vying to get their names into large print. Where else but a Musto party would you see F-Troop octogenerian Larry Storch chatting amiably next to drag star Flotilla Debarge while samba dancers spin around to live conga playing as a Sarah Palin impersonator does shots?

Just a short list of those I can recall seeing: Jerry Springer, Jackie Hoffman, Basil Twist, Robin Byrd, Murray Hill, Lisa Lampanelli, Dirty Martini, Robbyne Kaamil, Xavier, Mike Diamond, Boy Culture's Matthew Rettenmund, Kenneth (In The 212) Walsh, Gawker's Brian Moylan, SiriusXM host Michelangelo Signorile, and many many hookers, hustlers, porn stars, drag queens and basically every person who makes Manhattan what it is. Big props to promoter Chip Duckett (who did the JMG Pride party too) for another memorable event.

SLIDESHOW: Below are a dozen of my own photos from the evening, but you should check out Father Tony's much more glamorous sampling, as he is eternally drawn to anybody in a bizarre costume.

UPDATE: More photos are in from Wayne at World Of Wonder.

UPDATE II: Boy Culture's Matthew Rettenmund has posted many photos and videos of the evening, along with a pithy recap of the attendees.
