Downtown divas

With two of the ladies heading uptown this week, we revisit our list of ten local women every gay man should be obsessed with.

Emily McNamara, singer-comedian, show queen
Why you should be obsessed: As the host of no fewer than three weekly gay-themed events, the unstoppably exuberant McNamara might seem in danger of overexposure. Nope! There's no such thing as too much when it comes to this party-starter par excellence, a zany-sexy variation on a young Teri Garr whose radiant comic energy can brighten even the darkest bar.—AF
Emily McNamara hosts Curtain Call at Splash, karaoke night on Tuesdays at Bar-Tini Ultra Lounge, and Mostly Sondheim at the Duplex.
