My friend "MaiTai D'Bauch" has started up a club night on the Lower East Side, putting a modern-day spin on Virginia Woolf's credo that every woman with a creative spark must have a room of her own. (Note to self: Must start club night. Also, read Virginia Woolf, i.e., "a woman must have money and a room of her own if she is to write fiction," etc.)
MaiTai (in photo on right, DJ guardian angel on left) claims to be a 28-year-old male from Brooklyn, and I can attest to the Brooklyn part, but I'm not so sure about the rest. I think MaiTai only wishes she were a male-to-female impersonator.
According to the details on her MySpace page, MaiTai's status is "Swinger," orientation is "Bi," and she's a smokin', drinkin' Gemini with an occupation that combines debauchery, nightlife, marketing and promotion.
Are you a dirty faggot? A hung hetero? A slutty str8 girl, radical biker, girlboy, bear, leather daddy, androgynous punk, DL thug, porn slut, social terrorist, faerie queen, closeted politician, kinky hipster or camera whore?
MaiTai seeks to serve you.
"Hello Darlings," she says. "Let's bring a much needed dose of scandal to Alphabet City on Thursdays!"

You missed the opening night on June 19, billed as a pansexual party. Too bad. I was there (and plan to go again on July 3), with my sparkly costume jewelry and stick-straight hair teased up into a pile on the top of my head, trying to fit in as best I could with the pansexual theme. No picture of that, alas, though here's a nice one of gogo dancer Luc, who shimmied on the bar (if you want to see Luc's face, please click on the picture to see the full image):
