Gay Naked Pool Party in Tivoli August 7th

Hi Hudson,

I know, I've been away for a's been kinda busy this summer....

Anyway, if you haven't seen "Odds Against Tomorrow", you have to see it. It's a wonderful film made here, in our City of Hudson!

Next weekend - August 7th, my good friends at Hudson Valley Bares are having a gay male naked pool party in Tivoli - so close to our fair little city.

First, it's the Chelsea Clinton wedding in Rhinebeck, then a naked pool party in Tivoli!

Maybe, not be outdone, Hudson should have a naked Clinton pool party!

Be careful what you ask for, Trixie!

For more details on the naked gay pool party in Tivoli, send an email to:

Don't say I never tell you anything.....

BINGO MADNESS - Tuesday, July 27th

Ok -

Yet another BINGO should go, they are a lot of fun.

The place is packed.

This is NOT your grandmother's BINGO parlor!

Oh no.


Leave the kiddies at home!

It's dirty, awful jokes. Gossip. Personal stories/tragedies.

BINGO numbers - with fabulous prizes!

Strongtree is usually good for a donation of two pounds of coffee, and I bake biscotti to go with them.

The LICK boys in the summertime, give us licks....of ice cream.

Other prizes are whatever I can find.

Sometimes, it's stuff I have lying around the house. Sometimes, it's a sexual "favor".

....since there's no cash involved, I guess it's legal.

Not that Hudson hasn't seen THOSE types of BINGO parlors in the past, as well!

I'm just trying to keep this city's past alive.....that's it!

Shana Gallery Opening

Shana Lee's Opening Celebration
Saturday, July 3rd 4-8pm

315 Warren Street

Hey -

I'm kinda back....not really.

Hudson Pride took a lot of energy, and it would be nice to just write a blog.

....that's how it all started.

Today, there was a editorial in the Register-Star about someone walking down Warren Street with his family and a couple of drag queens made a snide remark.

Hey, I'm not responsible for every snide remark that comes out of every drag queen in this town!


If you missed Hudson Pride, all you have to do is watch this video. It's wonderful.

Hudson Pride from Travis Bleen on Vimeo.

It kinda sums it all up.

It can make even an old whore cry.

The post below I wrote back in January. It's still true.....and I still wear it everyday.

Thank you, Hudson!




Jason's Upstairs Bar is having a closing party on January 30th.

ok --- true story ----

The Black Party, this past September, was my 40th birthday party.

It's a typical Trixie's Whorehouse party. Everyone's out dancing, and having fun, and GIO is there, spinning. My friends and neighbors are all there, and people are giving me gifts and wishing me happy birthday. Erika pulls out a cake, the whole bar sings 'Happy Birthday'. It was all very, very sweet.

Then, all of a sudden, there are about five people hovering around me, with their cell phones! Jason is texting everyone!!!

'Tell Trixie to meet me in the back! It's urgent!'

OMG...I think....something stupid is happening.

"Something stupid" usually happens. It's nothing major, just something stupid. Like, someone loses something, or the fire department shows up for a pulled alarm....

....something stupid....

I grab GIO and pull him back with me.

I blame him for everything that goes wrong....whether it's his fault or not.

He takes it well.....the blame, that is.

By the time we get to the back of the bar, I'm a wreck. What could it be NOW?

I walk into the back room, and Jason pulls out a little black box and wishes me 'Happy Birthday'. I wanted to kill him.

It's a necklace, made by his wife, in the shop downstairs. It's simple; a single piece hand-molded jewelry.

I wear it everyday.

It reminds me of the thoughtfulness of Jason and his wife, Shana, and it reminds me of that night, when a bar-full of people sang 'Happy Birthday' to me.

If I'm out of town, I look into the mirror and see it, and it brings me home. It reminds me that you can find an abundance of happiness and love, even in a little town called 'Hudson'.

Thank you,
