Alan Cumming Becomes Regular Host Of NYC's 'My Chiffon Is Wet' Party

David White

Tony Award-winning actor Alan Cumming has a brand new nightlife gig, which should give New Yorkers more than enough incentive to make it out on Thursday nights and brave the Friday hangover.

Starting May 1, Cumming will join DJ Paisley Dalton, Leo Gugu, Ruby Roo and photographer Brett Lindell for the senior and final year of "My Chiffon Is Wet," a staple on Thursdays in Manhattan nightlife. "My Chiffon Is Wet" draws in queers from every part of New York, with the party having previously won "Best Event To Leave Brooklyn For" at the 2014 Brooklyn Nightlife Awards.

“'My Chiffon is Wet' is what I think people mean when they talk about the good old days of New York," Cumming said in a statement. "People of all ages and sexualities and genders are dancing and dressing up and performing and talking and having fun. And everyone is kind. It doesn’t get much better than this!”

Former guests and hosts at "My Chiffon Is Wet" include David LaChapelle, Michael Musto, Zachary Quinto, Jinx Monsoon, Sharon Needles, Andy Cohen, Michael Cunningham, Cazwell, Amanda Lepore, Dita Von Teese, Patricia Field and Nomi Ruiz -- just to name a few. The rage is every Thursday at 10 p.m. at New York's Eastern Bloc.
