Vibe: Holy Mountain and LadyLand are melting pots of fashion and freaks: club kids, leather daddies, twinks, goths, acid freaks, house heads, techno heads, circuit queens, drag queens, Bushwick kids, Hell’s Kitchen kids, young, old, gay, straight.

Party line: I may be no Mother Teresa, but I do get a lot of people laid. Love makes the world go ’round!

Mission: No one’s re-inventing the wheel here; a party’s a party. I want people to dance till their feet bleed. I want people to hear great artists they might not have heard. That said, if there’s one thing almost everyone can agree on, it’s Madonna.

Past party foul: Last year, at LadyLand, it suddenly rained hard, and I had no choice [but] to get on the mic and stall... I thought I did okay, sorta funny... Till I watched the video the next day. Alcohol and microphones are a dangerous combo!

Save the date: LadyLand, June 28 and 29. It’s World Pride so we’re expanding to two days [to] fit over 10,000 people. It’s gonna be a big queer birthday party celebration... Bring on the cake, cake, cake!
