Posted January 10, 2020 by with 6 comments

The Str8UpGay Summit started today at the W Hotel in Hollywood, and while many of the main industry events start tomorrow, there was a kick off happy hour to welcome guests arriving tonight. Here were some of the stars I spotted at the W (note: yes, these were taken with my iPhone, and yes, I am not a professional photographer—we have real ones doing photos at the awards on Sunday, thank God):

Mateo Vice, Austin Wolf, Nico Leon, and Shane Cook.

Sean Ford, Angel Rivera, and Blake Mitchell (with a fun cameo from Brock Banks).

Carter Dane, Ang, and Alex Mecum.

Adrian Hart and friends.

Shane, Nico, Sean, Mateo, Angel, and Blake.

After the happy hour, we headed over to the Montalbán Theatre for a screening of Leave It To Levi, starring Levi Karter and directed by Jake Jaxson. If you haven’t seen it, you can stream it here—it’s a beautiful look at Levi’s life as a porn star and a drag queen, and in the doc’s most touching moments, we learn about his relationship with his mom. Levi was in character as Sassy for the screening, as was Liam Riley, who came as Bambi:

Also on hand were Sister Roma to host the red carpet, Greg McKeon, and “Human Ken Doll” himself, Justin Jedlica:  A Q&A with the film’s cast and director following the screening:

Following the screening, I met the stunning Michael Boston and the real-life Brock Banks for the first time (and yes, they’re both even hotter in person, if you can believe it):

And later, back at the hotel, Mateo Vice, Boomer Banks, and Michael again:

Last but not least, Chad with boyfriend Blake:

More to come tomorrow…
