The annual international gay escort awards called the “Hookies” were announced in New York City on Friday, March 22, 2013 at Roseland Ballroom as part of the Black Party Expo featuring an erotic fashion show; a performance by vintage disco queen Billie Ray Martin; and booths and displays featuring porn studios, purveyors of erotica, all types of toys, fetish gear, and men working the happy crowd in little more than studded leather jocks.
In other words, a fairly typical New York City night.

This Expo was made scintillating by the attendance of an abundance of gay media personalities including the Village Voice’s Michael Musto, fiendishly roving video star Mike Diamond, gorgeous activist Jack Mackenroth — who was the cover boy of a recent issue of SFGN’s The Mirror — legendary NYC TV host and retired porn star, Robin Byrd, Sirius XM radio host Frank DeCaro, renowned gay porn producer Chi Chi LaRue and Miami’s playwright/actor David Leddick who stopped by with the cast of his NYC production “Rentboy The Musical.”
Kisses flew across the red carpet, and everyone agreed that the difference between this group of hot, eager-to-please and honest escorts and the hypocritical clergymen and politicians who often make headlines was refreshing.
