The Gay Agenda


By Edgar Casillas

CUTTHROAT COUTURE: The Project Runway finale is upon us, and while this season offered a disappointing measure of drama (what, no craft service lunches spitefully laced with sewing needles? No dainty models showing up high on PCP?), the three debatably best designers of the bunch -- drape-til-he-drops Rami Kashou, shorts-jumpsuit'loving Julian Lewis, and the humblest guy on cable TV, Christian Siriano -- are sure to turn out some "fierce" collections March 5 as they battle for $100,000 dollars and the most coveted prize of all: Even the faintest smile from the perennially unamused Nina Garcia.

SPECTACLE: Show stoppers Kiki & Herb bring their riotous antics to Bottlerocket Wine & Spirit, where the duo will regale admirers with their ribald humor and sign copies of their first-ever DVD, Kiki & Herb: Live at the Knitting Factory. If the irreverent anecdotes and chicken scratch of this drag cabaret act, made up of Justin Bond and Kenny Mellman, aren't enough to entice you, come for the free wine. Check it all out Monday, March 3, from 6pm-8pm, 5 West 19th Street at 5th Avenue, New York City. No invitation needed.
