Hmmmm-what do we have here….

A Tuesday evening in our Capital City and all is well. While the ordinary citizen safely sleeps, our DJs and party planners are preparing for the
BYT/Capital Pride SPANDEX party at the Wonder Bread Factory this Friday.

BYT celebrates gay pride with Spandex, a party at the Wonderbread Factory on June 7, 2013 in Washington, D.C. Drag queens, superhero go-go dancers, and DJs.BYT celebrates gay pride with Spandex, a party at the Wonderbread Factory on June 7, 2013 in Washington, D.C.

BUT, WAIT. If we had a girl named Molly, she would be in danger.
AND SO WOULD OUR DJs!

Darkness lurks around all corners. Evil temptresses in the form of DRAG QUEENS!
Jezzibel Jaxknife, Birdie LaCage, DC’s Very Own Peaches, and Pu$$y Noir.
They will not rest until SPANDEX is destroyed!

Zoinks! The Queens have our DJs bound-and-gagged.

Are our DJs doomed? Will our bears live to hibernate another winter?
Without rescue the SPANDEX party could be lost.

STAY TUNED…For the Exciting Conclusion Below!

When we last left our DJs, we had said our fearful farewells.
They were hopelessly trapped deep within the death shaft.
Certainly, all would be lost. But…wait!
NO NEED TO FEAR! Our scantily clad superheros are here to save the day.

With our Queens foiled by the flick of a feather – and a dash of fabulous – our superheroes save our DJs and save the day.
