Last Friday Night Richard Kern Release Party + Yelle Afterparty

Last Friday night New York City, the incredibly talented Richard Kern—an artist that has inspired me with his youth portraits, particularly Contact High and his younger video works (Lydia Lunch)—held a book release party for his latest, titled Girlfriend Boyfriend (Shizen Books, Design by Peter Miles).

At the top of Webster Hall, a long narrow room was decorated with his collective photos featured in the book being sold, depicting the ever-so colorful backdrops he’s known for. In attendance: Olivier Zahm from Purple Magazine, my former boss and exceptional New Yorker Chrissie Miller, alongside friend (Purple Mag) Caroline Gaimari. A fresh batch of hip Japanese youth, which is always dope. The turn-up was successful and everyone had a great time.

May I also mention…..There were limited edition Richard Kern panties!

Following the Richard Kern book release party, I had attended Yelle’s post-Iriving Plaza performance after party, meeting my favorite one and only Blackbook Editor-in-Chief Jacob Brown. Sophia Lamar, the fairy godmother of my dreams, was there, cherished by all young gay boys that surround her and artists alike. Yelle had her own table surrounded by cute French guys, which, in my drunk stupor, had flirted with only to find that most were straight. Oh well!

It was a fun night and she looked amazing. New York loves you, Yelle. Check out her latest single featured on the latest album.
