From the bottom of my bosom, thank you all for participating in the events over the year. With your support, we have been able to put on fabulous and oh-so-chic festivities. We hope you have enjoyed these joyous occasions throughout 2016. It has been a pleasure coordinating them! 

You and 200+ guests filled the Memorial Art Gallery's ballroom at April's Inspired Queens Drag Brunch. (And, if I may add, tipped VERY generously!) The first ever drag brunch at the gallery, eight months on and I still hear from people reminiscing the event! Among the wonderful sponsors who presented the brunch was Rochester Woman Magazine. In August, we teamed up for Day of Empowerment: Fashion Is a Drag! which featured local queens Miss Deelicious, Paige Sulay and Wednesday Westwood. Some of the queens were also published in the magazine's August issue (including yours truly!) I may not be a supermodel, but there's definitely some potential to be a cover girl! October's Cover Girl: Put Your Best Heels On, at Edible's Restaurant, was all about awareness and fundraising for Center for YouthWe concluded the year with a more intimate affair during December’s Queens for Christmas Brunch at Label 7. I am happy and honored to have shared 2016 with you.

Get ready for exciting events in the upcoming year! 

XoXo, 

Ortensia
