BILLY BEYOND"S BLOG
The ridiculous Billy Beyond now has a blog at: http://billybeyond.blog-city.com
An avid photographer, naturally his site features pix of "le crum de la crum" of downtown club royalty like Sister Dimension, Amanda LeWhore, Loretta Hogg, Gina Varla Vetro and Tickles (above).
Billy and I bonded years ago over a bottle of poppers on the Pyramid dancefloor. And a bag of coke at Bassline. And a few hits of acid at the Copa Cabana--on our way home, the cab got blocked by a garbage truck in front of us so we got to watch churning garbage juice while "peaking". For those of you who don't know him, Billy is a dj, stylist, jewelry-designer, make-up artist, photographer, and rim-aholic (that explains his breath)--basically one of those fags with an incredible eye who can do anything from styling Sex and The City to impersonating 70's country star Bobbie Gentry at Wigstock to his current project, art-directing Amy Sedaris's cook-book. Billy also modelled for Todd Oldham in fishy drag for a couple of years in the eighties--remember when fashion was fun? One year Todd even designed dresses named after the Pyramid queens--I know there was a Hapi Phace, a Lady Bunny, and probably a Tabboo and a Sister Dimension. Prissing into that fashion show to see dresses we'd inspired by the most buzz-worthy designer in New York--in front row seats, no less!--we really thought we'd made it! (Boy, were we ever wrong.) The Jeannie C. Riley soundtrack didn't hurt, neither.
