Bussed in

I finally got in to the Bijou! I've been hearing about the famed after-hours sex club from my boyfriends for years and finally, tonight, thanks to (who else?) sleaze king Daniel Nardicio, I got to waltz my dyke self right down into the seedy, skanky dump of a space. It was Mr. D's genius idea to use the place as the venue to premiere his Great Gay American Road Trip film—a doc of his favorite group of downtown celebs on their way to do a show in Baltimore, traveling in a big yellow school bus driven by the ringleader himself. The "red carpet premiere" kicked off with the actual bus chugging across 4th Street and depositing some of the film's stars—trannie-boi star Glenn Marla, dirty bunny Gio, porn star Aaron King, sexy Dina Delicious, big-tittied hostess Sweetie—right at the Bijou's blue door. After an hour delay due to technical difficulties (the projectors are designed for films that play on a loop, natch), the patient crowd poured into the sticky-floored cave for what turned out to be one wacky, funny, utterly mesmerizing slice of queer life, all blessedly captured on film. Highlights: Gio high as a kite at 8am, NJ rest stop patrons giving the half-naked group smiles of approval, Marla's speaking with heart and soul about educating oppressors. It was the cleanest Bijou night on record, that's for sure. Photos below:
