On Friday, December 21, Hard Drive Men, located at Paddles at 250 West 26th Street, held a pageant to select a man who is sexy, kinky and original enough to represent the men of such a scandalous and hot nightspot. By the way, Paddles is one of the first and most enduring BDSM clubs in the country!
It was the first-ever Mr. Paddles contest and was hosted by Falcon model Jason Tyler and judges including celebrity culture vulture Michael Musto of the Village Voice, Lady Clover Honey and Mr. Rawhide Jed Ryan.
The winner of the night was photographer and actor Rob Ordonez, and the first runner-up was LeNair Xavier.
Ordonez (RobertOrdonez.YolaSite.com) starts 2013 with his first charity event in collaboration with President Erin Dinan from One Sandwich at a Time (OneSandwichataTime.org) to help feed the homeless.
The event will be held at The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Center located at 208 West 13th Street, Room 101, on January 24 from 5 to 8:30 p.m.
The event will have the photography from Ordonez for sale, with 50% of the proceeds going to One Sandwich at a Time, and fashions from designer Geary Marcello (MarcelloGeary.YolaSite.com) with gorgeous model Danielle Night, make-up by Tawni Michelle Lanford and of course sandwich making. There will be raffles, wine and surprises. Open your heart!
