LADY GAGA at BOOTLEG Saturday night fundraiser for equality

Josh Wood has been one of recent history's most pivotal figures in defining the character of entertainment and nightlife in New York City. Aside from acting as lead producer and promoter for Margaret Cho's "State of The Union," The Black Party and The White Party at The Saint Large, and Ricky Gervais' US debut at Madison Square Garden, he is also the founder of the Highline Festival alongside David Bowie. Not the kind to let his entertainment entrepreneurship get ahead of his activism, Wood also organized the first official LGBT events for Barack Obama's presidential campaign in New York and has sat on the board of The Stonewall Community Foundation.

For this Saturday's installment of his wildly popular BOOTLEG party he will be raising funds for the rally being held October 11th in Washington DC by Equality Across America, an organization dedicated to ensuring human rights and equality to LGBT individuals in all 435 congressional districts. He has enlisted the hosting duties of his pal LADY GAGA, outspoken queer rights ally and young prodigy who recently burst into worldwide stardom after spending much of her youth penning hits for artists including Akon, Britney Spears and Fergie.

On spins for the evening will be Peter Rauhofer, Honey Dijon, Larry Tee and Lina, plus John Alessandro's CRUISING party will be in full swing downstairs with Bill Coleman bringing the sounds.
