In this week’s episode of ThotLight, Thotyssey and Red Eye Radio’s weekly reckoning of NYC nightlife biz and jizz:
Jim recounts a sad chapter last week sitting alone with the bags in Thirst while Freddie was thotting it up in the back with the VIPs… and to add insult to injury, Freddie also shares his special moment with a famous gay newscaster later that weekend. Also, Jim was at J.R. Price’s remixed single live performance at VERS. In the news: Cherry Valentine (RIP), Kornbread, Erika Klash, Miss’d America, Miss Coney Island, Drag Wars V & Kimmi Moore.
We are also honored to speak with OTA’s legendary producer and commentator Leggoh JohVera about the creation of his world famous ballroom weekly that recently hosted Lil Nas X , Rosalía, Mariahlynn and… Mae Whitman!?; how multimedia dancing star Yanis Marshall’s shade brought the show tons of global attention; the politics, gatekeeping and sanctity of ballroom and who is allowed to enjoy the scene; thoughts on Legendary & POSE; his Cali roots and joining (then leaving) the iconic House of LaBeija; his recent first trip out of the US, and the future of ballroom.
