Commissioner Daniella Levine Cava presented it to SAVE. Later that night, after months of online voting, Marytrini presented the Miami Flash Awards at Bailo Nightclub. Arriving I found a beautiful red carpet with a step and repeat and once inside the club was packed. I was honored to accept the award for Hotspots, as we won Best Magazine. Congrats to all the producers and winners on a wonderful night. On Thursday, Creative Male presented their annual Holiday Party that featured lots of libation, hors D’oeuvres, and boys modeling sexy gift ideas (my favorite part). A portion of the evening’s proceeds benefited Miami Beach Pride. On Friday, Score featured their Christmas Party which was hosted by the Penny Back Boys with Hors D’oeuvres, drinks and music by DJ Ab followed by VJ Mac and special performances by house pop band Lalinea.

On Saturday, The Manor presents the premiere edition of Fierce Queens, as Mizz Cori presented over 30 of her famously fabulous drag queens who were go-go dancing, performing, mingling and causing havoc. The night had great energy and was a great success. On Sunday, My TropiXXX presented their annual sit on Sexy Santa’s Lap, and who doesn’t like that?
