PYT & Autostraddle Threw A Calendar Release Party in LA, Took Photos

Hey we told you we were having a “Holiday Straddle“-themed PYT lesbo bash in Los Angeles, California on December 17th and guess what? WE DID. The party celebrated a) the holidays, obvs and b) the release of the 2011 Autostraddle Calendar (made possible with the help of 12 smokin’ hot models, world-famous fashion photographer Robin Roemer and stylist Sara Medd and make-up artist Christina Natale). It was so much fun, (as PYT parties always are) and so many fun people came out to dance and drink and buy calendars! The calendar girls in attendance were: Nicole Pacent (June), Sarah Croce (April), Romi Klinger (December) and Laura (August!)

Charlene made us an AWESOME Autostraddle mural (she cut the stencil and spray painted the whole damn thing herself!) obvs DJ Saratonin provided the dance party soundtrack, and amazing photographer Abz Cruz is responsible for the memories below (as well as any and every photo that comes from PYT), and we really wouldn’t have it any other way.

Get your calendar here. It’s almost 2011 silly!
