Red Dress Party 2013

Red Dress Party 2013

Last weekend I had the awesome pleasure of attending Portland’s annual Red Dress Party – a fundraiser for people with HIV and AIDS. It was a super fun night! The rule was that everyone, man or woman, had to wear a red dress. My dress was $70 marked down to $4.99. That’s right, $4.99. WHERE, you ask? At EARS I mean SEARS!
Preparing for the event with my escorts Boniva and Viviana was just as much fun as the actual party. A highlight of the pre-party planning was our trip to Hollywood Lights, the theatrical lighting and stage makeup company, where the world’s most awesome employee, Erin, gave us a crash course in how to apply drag makeup. As it turns out, doing it correctly takes a whole lot of time, a whole lot of precious time and money, as George Harrison would say.
There were some men dressed as very beautiful ladies at the party. I was impressed. It was hard to tell who the biological women were!
