The blasts of color were amazing! The crowd was a chorus of oo's and ah's! And it was all in perfect harmony with great anthems of our people ... by the likes of Donna, Diana, and the Weather Girls. No, it's not those bourgeoisie fireworks; it's the Fire Island Invasion. The event started when a drag queen from Cherry Grove was refused service at a Pines establishment and has grown to a gigantic cornucopia of silicone and taffeta. With celebrity presence ranging from Robyn Byrd (who is in almost every one of my pictures) to the amazing Kevin Aviance, this event was a blast. A few of my pictures posted here.
