Hip to be ‘Queer’

'Folk' feted with fruity cocktails at Gramercy Hotel

Showtime’s traveling cocktail party to kick off the fourth season of “Queer as Folk” had a lively landing in Gotham at the fittingly hipster Gramercy Park Hotel last Thursday night. The nearly full complement of cast members joined Showtime’s Matt Blank and Robert Greenblatt at the fete.

The setting, all purple velvet banquettes, fruity cocktails and even a roving drag queen (Lady Bunny), set the stage for a festive salute to the paybox’s gay-themed drama.

Rounding out the queer theme were Gotham’s resident style folk Ted Allen and Kyan Douglas of Bravo’s “Queer Eye for the Straight Guy.”
