Strut Brooklyn recently hosted its dazzling “Night Of 1000 Amanda Lepores” event at the vibrant Red Pavilion on Saturday October 14th, located at 1241 Flushing Avenue. The six-hour extravaganza, held from 10 PM to 4 AM, featured over 300 enthusiastic guests who reveled in a night of Lepore inspired performances and signature cocktails.
The event boasted an impressive lineup of live performances and hosts, with legendary Amanda Lepore headlining the night. Other notable performers included Puerto Rican princess Beaujangless, rhinestoned sensation Virginia Thicc, Miss Bushwig 2023 Julie J, and rising stars like Megami and Amanda Tori Meating. The crowd kept grooving with DJ sets by Arra and Coach Chris.
The charismatic hosts, including dominatrix Miss Cheng, Papito Suave, TJ Samson, Michelle Wynters, Ryan Roachie, The Blair Bitch, Andrew Dahling plus our very own Ladygunn magazine, ensured the energy remained at its peak throughout the night. Recent NYFW viral sensation Markus Kelle managed the door with a warm (and sometimes shady!) welcome for all attendees. Lucas Stowe’s fishnet pop-up shop provided a dynamic shopping experience for those looking to add a touch of flair to their outfits. The event also saw the presence of notable figures, such as Beyonce Dancer and Choreographer Jonte, artist Buff Monster, and Hendrick’s Gin Ambassador Erik Andersson.
Two signature cocktails, “The Lepore” and “My Hair Looks Fierce,” featuring Hendrick’s Gin, delighted attendees with their unique flavors plus 50 fans that were snatched up by enthusiastic guests, throwp!
