Our reporter was on the scene for the over-the-top antics in Vienna. Imagine a Halloween extravaganza at the Metropolitan Museum of Art combined with Priscilla Queen of the Desert and you’ve got a mild idea of Vienna’s spectacularly over-the-top Life Ball, which annually raises millions of Euros for worldwide AIDS organizations. This past weekend’s 20th-anniversary at the city’s magnificent Gothic City Hall lured a wild mix of celebrities (featured guests included Bill Clinton, Antonio Banderas and Mila Jovovich), socialites, drag queens and scores of costumed revelers. A planeload of New Yorkers summoned for the occasion included creatures of the night Ladyfag, Justin Bond, Susanne Bartsch and paparazzi favorite Amanda Lepore, whose red-streaked skintight dress was inspired by the party’s theme, “Fighting the Flames of Ignorance.” See more LGBT party photos.

Glee's Naya Rivera and Cory Monteith presided over the glittery crowd. @TimeOutNYGayTONY Gay on Facebook We were there: The Glammy Awards Queer nightlife players honored their own. Drag stars, downtown scenesters and sundry other nightlife creatures came together at Splash for this weekend's Glammy Awards. Familiar faces in the crowd—and on the stage—included hosts Michael Musto, Amanda Lepore and Bianca Del Rio (who also took home an armload of awards, including entertainer of the year), as well as Ari Gold, Cazwell, Lady Bunny, Sherry Vine and many more. For a complete list of winners, check out the Glammys' Facebook page. @timeoutnygay See more in Gay & Lesbian. We were there: Amanda Lepore's Big Top Photographs by the Drunken Photographer No, it wasn't the stiff drinks (though they may have helped too). The real reason behind the freaks of the night looking way freakier than ever was the fun-house mirror that no one could resist standing in front of—not even hostess Ms. Lepore, whose breasts looked disturbingly flat in the stretched-out reflection! Carnivalesque, to be sure. Check out this party's candy-colored crowd.
