Gays make mark at Feather Awards

2011-11-12 13:52

I must admit, I love gay people for their pizzazz, style and sense of unity.

On Tuesday night they came out in numbers for the third annual Feather Awards, held at The Venue in Melrose Arch, Joburg.

I spied Egoliwood’s hot couples on the red carpet, including The Wild actress Gail Nkoane and kwaito star Kabelo Mabalane.

After I spotted them last week, I guess they don’t see the need to hide anymore.

I also saw that the towel-loving Speedy has found love in celebrity make-up artist Nomsa Madida; and I can’t get over how cute club manager Chris Nkosi looked with Vuzu presenter Lalla Hirayama in their matching Chuck Taylors.

Dressed to the nines as usual were Bonang Matheba, Dineo Ranaka, Hlelo and Ntando Masina and even tannie Edith Venter looked good without visible undergarments.

The politicians’ girls – Fikile Mbalula’s Omphemetse Malumo and Julius Malema’s rumoured squeeze Lizelle Tabane – looked stunning.

I was glued to the stage, especially when the opening act was eight gay men who mastered Beyonce’s Run the World (Girls) choreography to the T.

Of course, the word “girls” was replaced by “gays”, which was expected.

Performers included Thembisile Ntaka, Micasa and Madame Gigi, who enthralled us as always.

It was a fabulous night.

Thank goodness for the weather and the bar tab that never closed, the gays had a field day!
