We were there: Pink Cross

Photographs by the Drunken Photographer

Very aptly named local drag star Sweetied recently landed in the hospital and—like so many people—she was without insurance. NYC's nightlife creatures swooped in where the American health-care system failed: Wednesday night's Pink Cross benefit brought out a delightful mix of drag queens, art stars, burlesque performers and more. It might not be enough to erase Sweetie's mountain of medical bills, but the proceeds certainly put a dent in it, and it was a lovely reminder that the city's queer community can actually be a community sometimes.
