Last week, MOD Media celebrated the premiere issue of Exuberance with a high-energy party at Craven NYC. Over 350 attendees, including Manhattan’s LGBTQ elite and supporters across every platform from fashion and design to TV and entertainment, gathered to raise their glasses to New York’s first-ever luxury LGBTQ publication. Exuberance’s unique focus on design and luxury was highlighted by writer and performer Nora Burns during her red carpet interviews.
The event featured interviews with our cover star, David Mann, globally recognized for his design work, and celebrity event planner David Monn among many other well-known faces! Jada Valenciaga, the drag queen most recognized for reality show, Shades: Queens of NYC, added a sense of conviviality that went had in hand the energy put forth by Kimberly Davis, the new lead singer of CHIC. Other entertainers included Nile Rogers of the legendary disco song, Le Freak, DJ Lina, actor Stephen Conrad Moore, and the highlight of the night: An engaging performance by Dex of the Dex Experience.
Hors d’oueuvres were served through sleek LED drone tray by Franco Vitella Catered Affairs in partnership with NJ Drone Academy. Cocktails catered by Danzka brought life to the party. We cannot, though, take a moment without thanking the people and the industry whose support has made Exuberance possible. A heartfelt thank you to all who have made launch possible, and most especially to our sponsors for the night: Danzka, DIFFA, and Bal Harbour. And what is a night without cake? Baked NYC donated one delicious rainbow cake.
“I have been an editor at 11 shelter magazines and I am so thrilled to launch this one, a celebration and confirmation of the LGBTQ commumity. In every issue we will be shining a light on the amazing and creative people who make the world fabulous. LGBTQ people are a driving force behind design in all its forms, from interiors, architecture, fashion, and theater, to film, food, music, and art…well let’s face it, we’re everywhere!” -Jason Kontos
