Truth or Dare: A Madonna Party

 

"Take me to the top!" nightlife photographer Kevin Sussy said to the elevator operator.

Stepping out onto the 18th floor of The Standard in the Meatpacking District, New York, Kevin felt the base pounding to the 2000's hit 'Music' and heard cheers grow louder as he approached the entrance. Stragglers from the NYC Pride Parade and guests dressed to impress expressed themselves by swirling and twirling with their lovers for the ultimate Madonna-themed party. Undoubtedly one of the hottest parties to be attending during Pride, Ty Sunderland & Erol Sabadosh got partygoers into the groove playing a mix of songs by the one and only while drag icons Aquaria and Wench took us to the next level with their Madonna impersonations, dancing on top of the bar counter where you just left your cranberry vodka.

"Hey Mr. DJ, put a record on, I wanna dance with my baby," and dance they did!
