On Friday night, we sent young gay writer-hottie Bennett Madison to cover a party thrown in honor of the birthday of gay eminence Bruce Benderson. We didn't know who that was either, but it turns out that he's very important to the gays! "Bruce Benderson is like Gore Vidal but a little bit [Ed: Um, 21 years!] younger and more downtown. He wrote a bunch of books which no one at the party had read (I asked). Also he went to high school with Camille Paglia. He's an outrageous gay elder statesment. I mean statesman. I'm still drunk," Bennett IM'd us this morning. The detailed accounting of his fun times are after the jump, accompanied by photos by perpetual lone heterosexual in the room Nikola Tamindzic.
