WOW! The LA Pride madness is over and what a week it was. Many thanks to everyone who came to all of my events over the course of the week and to those of you who showed their support by attending the LA Pride festival and the parade. Congrats to the team at CSW (Christopher Street West) who did an outstanding job with the festival this year; hands down one of the best by far that I’ve ever attended.
One of the things I fell in love with about LA is how we just keep going and going, one week to the next, the parties are non-stop. Nightlife here is so active and vibrant and there is always something new going on that keeps our scene ever evolving. I’m just one of the promoters in town who keep help changing the nightlife game on a weekly basis and keeps everyone on their toes. The great thing about LA gay nightlife is that there literally is something for everyone. No matter what tickles your fancy (did I really just say that?), you will always be able to find somewhere to party in LA.
Honestly it couldn’t be more perfect in LA right now. The weather is gorgeous, the sun is hot, and the boys are hotter. Which in LA means one thing: Summer pool party season is in full effect. Let the starving yourself begin (if it hasn’t already)…I’m kidding, I’m kidding! This Saturday, I’m proud to be one of the hosts for the annual YPC pool party called POOLWATCH benefiting the L.A. Gay & Lesbian Center w/ DJ Ryan Kenney (who I adore). If you are interested in attending, there are still some tickets left! You can visit: www.YPCPoolWatch.com to purchase them.
So much more coming up in LA including me hosting The Bathhouse Show at The Comedy Store next weekend, LA’s Gay and Lesbian Film Festival OUTFEST, and the 4th of July is right around the corner.
I wanna hear from you! Email me at [email protected] or Tweet me: @Hollywoody if there’s an event you want me to mention to our readers. Until next time…Live, Love, and Inspire! ☺

WHAT’S UP PARTY PEOPLE? I am so excited about being the new LA Nighthawk and teaming up with Stoli & OUT. Let me introduce myself, my name is Woody Woodbeck (yes, really) and I am one of LA’s premiere Gay promoters. As I write this blog, it’s LA Pride week and I am in the midst of a slue of events and ready to deliver only the best for all of you here in LA celebrating PRIDE! Honestly, though Pride season is so crazy for me, it’s one of my favorite times of year. The LGBT community and our straight allies come together in a way that is truly magical and with each passing year, we see more and more acceptance and less and less resistance to our community. We’re gay, We’re proud; Get into it! So if you happen to be in LA this weekend, you can check out my LA Pride Guide on my website.
For those of you that want to know a little bit more about me besides the fact that I throw parties, I LOVE pop culture and music. I am a tad bit obsessed with Mariah Carey; yes I am a hardcore LAMB (her real fans will know what that means) and have been in the fan club for multiple years; too many to name without being embarrassed…HA! I also have three college degrees; culinary arts, Radio & Journalism Broadcasting, and Film & TV. I am also a hopeless romantic, a Virgo, and one of the biggest Buffy The Vampire Slayers…ever. How can you not love her? Anyways, I look forward to being the best NIGHTHAWK I can be. Get ready for this party rollercoaster…LETSSGGOOO! ☺
