Lords Hotel Opens to a Lively Crowd of Drag Queens, Richie Rich, and Tinsley Mortimer

The Fort Lauderdale drag queen scene is putting Miami's to shame lately. (Seriously, where are Miami's drag shows? Where is our Lips?) So we were pleased to see so many queens at last night's Lords Hotel opening. In case you've been snoozing on your LBGT news, this is the only boutique hotel that caters strictly to the gay community. And as they opened their doors last night, the space, formerly the Nash Hotel, was filled with giant platinum wigs, sparkly mini dresses barely covering man parts, and Grey Gardens-worthy garb. Check out the full slideshow here. And read on for highlights, including appearances by former club kid/current designer Richie Rich and socialite/Gossip Girl guest star Tinsley Mortimer.
