Full of Pride

Over the weekend, cities across the country celebrated Pride Fest. Here in St. Louis the festivities kicked off Friday evening and continued on through the weekend with parties, parades and lots of PRIDE. Saturday night was the ultimate White Party at Erny’s 32 in Tower Grove. ULTRA was hosted by ALIVE Magazine (where I intern) and Erny’s 32. Even torrential downpour couldn’t keep the crowds off the dance floor as they danced the night away to beats from DJ Jimmy No Show, DJ Scotty

The incredibly acrobatic burlesque dancers!

Mac and DJ Sinamin. And party goers barely noticed the tornado strength winds that were practically blowing the tent over because they were too engrossed in the fabulous burlesque performance. ULTRA was my first event that I’ve worked for ALIVE and it was a great experience. From meeting A.J. Thouvenot, a local designer who debuted on Season 8 of Project Runway to hanging out with some of the dancers at the event (one of which performed with Lady Gaga on her Monster Ball Tour!) the event was a great success and an awesome way to spend Saturday night of Pride Fest.

Thouvenot may be a local celebrity but he was super sweet and down to earth!

And with the news from the night before of the legalization of gay marriage in the state of New York, the party was bursting with even more pride! And if you want to experience the night for yourself, check out the video I shot of the festivities at ALIVE’s newest blog, ALIVE Around Town!
