Staff Photographer:
For documenting our various hijinks and making sure we appear in the best light possible...much love to Stacie Joy with her amazing still photography!
Festival Operations and Hospitality:
And, of course, the festival would not have been possible without the work of a fine cadre of volunteers. Their efforts ran a wide and critical range - planning, advising, arranging and publicizing, schlepping and posting, ticket tearing and ushering, informing, schmoozing and hosting. Many, infinite thanks to... Ashleigh, Brad, Bill C., Patricia C., Susan Degnan, Joshua Hightower, Jane, Jess, Alan Levy, Lola, Melissa, John Pepper, Reuben, Mark M., Mark S., Saffron, Elizabeth Sheehan, Sherri, F. Leonora Solomon, Missy Stark, Dizzy Swank, Kenya Sweetz, Tom, Topaz and Yeiry.
For coordinating a sure-to-be bang-up kick-off gala, which will be rescheduled to a later date after a weather cancellation, Lola CherryCola and Selina Fire, with burlesque curation by Porno Jim.
Many thanks also to John Mhiripiri, Jed Rapfogel, Kolbe Resnick, Bradley Eros and all of the staff at Anthology Film Archives!
Awards and AfterGlow:

Kitten N' Lou HOLIER THAN THOU / Friday, March 31st @ Joe's Pub
Let's get biblical! Fresh from a smash run at Fringe World in Australia, everyone's favorite gay-married superduo drag darlings return to NYC with a brand new glitter bomb of award-winning dance, irreverent striptease, and surreal campy magic that’s been called "BRILLIANTLY DERANGED" by Time Out NY. Expect to be converted and shouting "YAS GAWD!"
