INVASION!!!July 10, 2009
On July 4th all the inhabitants of Fire Island and their many guests crowd the Ferry port. They come not just to celebrate the 4th, but the Invasion of hundreds of Drag performers to the island. The ferry boat (no pun intended) that we all take to get to our getaway is jam packed with drag queens and kings, performers and celebutants all dolled up for the occasion. they descend on a red carpet to the crowd of hundreds. The Golden Girls, Will and Grace characters, ninja fan maidens, beautiful ladies (Justin), pearl dripping penis heads (Machine!) and everything in between.
It wasn’t really any one thing that grabbed me as much as the overall creativity involved and the reception of the crowd. It was surging, people we cheering, everyone was excited. It was one of the best times I’ve ever had, and will surely be back next year.
