New York, NY (PRWEB) August 26, 2006
What are the NEXT Magazine Out There Awards? An award ceremony, a benefit, a great time, a spectacle, a who’s who of the New York City gay community all wrapped into one! The NEXT Magazine Out There Awards has lightened the spirit of awards shows by bringing back the fun into award ceremonies while commending those influential, colorful and supportive members who make the New York City gay community thrive. This year the event theme is "It Ain't Mean A Thing If It Don't Have That Bling."All are encouraged to "sparkle" and to expect a "blinged-out" gift bag at the end of the night.
The concept of the NEXT Magazine Out There Awards began in early 2005 when a copy of NEXT was paraded around the set of Saturday Night Live--during a gay-themed skit--by A-list celeb Johnny Knoxville who was then bestowed with a fictitious NEXT Magazine Out There Award. NEXT Magazine took the concept and created the real thing in August 2005 as a spoof-on-gay-award-shows award show. And, what a success…
-- Over 2,000 invited guests.
-- A green room of over 100 gay and lesbian celebrities, performers and nightlife personalities.
-- Media coverage by both of the national gay and lesbian television networks, Here! TV and Logo, as well national coverage on VH-1.
-- Post-event editorial in the New York Post’s Page 6 column touting the event as the “gay event of the year.”
-- Segments, photos and comments on popular blog sites from the likes of the Village Voice’s Michael Musto, Perez Hilton and Michael Lucas.
-- Held at NYC’s largest nightclub crobar, the show included six musical performances throughout the night, video presentation, red carpet arrival, press photo wall, live DJ and emcee.
-- Premium beverage and restaurant sponsors, VOX Vodka, Budweiser and Philip Marie Restaurant.
