We in the gay community are known for worshipping our divas. From Aretha to Cher to Madonna to Gaga, there are a plethora of pop icons that many of us are forever enamored withâ€”but which one do we choose as our supreme diva?
This Saturday, June 16, join Michael Musto of The Village Voice as he moderates a discussion on the LGBT community and diva worship at â€œLove Thy Diva.â€ Musto is joined by Clay Cane, host of â€œClay Cane Liveâ€ on WWRL 1600 AM and BET.com critique entertainment editor, Madonna impersonator Vivian Belle and Bette Midler impersonator Divine Graceâ€”itâ€™s like a debate and show all rolled into one!
â€œLove Thy Divaâ€ takes place Saturday, June 16, in the East Village at the Tompkins Square Library, part of the New York Public Library System. Catch the free discussion at 2 p.m., located at 331 E 10th Street.
The then event moves to Riverside Library (127 Amsterdam Avenue) on June 23 at 2 p.m., featuring Whitney Houston impersonator Tyra Ross, BeyoncÃ© impersonator Charley Marie and political analyst Edward Wyckoff Williams political analyst. Clay Cane moderates.
In a theoretical battle of the divas, weâ€™d probably go for the Queen of Popâ€”after all, she loves to stir up controversy, even at 53. Whoâ€™s your top diva?
