Factory Girl: G2H2

Early last Thursday evening, Factory Girl was spotted  in her true element at Sarasota’s divine monthly event, G2H2 (otherwise known as “Gay Guy Happy Hour”). G2H2 (which, by the way is super-duper friendly to all kinds of people, not JUST gay men) is the place to be if you want the 411 on men’s fashion in Sarasota.

Dressed to impress in faux fur, a hologram clutch, hot pink lips paired with a flashy white and gold manicure, Factory Girl found herself blissfully roaming in a sea of gorgeous, classy, sophisticated, fashion-forward and good-smelling MEN. The turnout was phenomenal (confirming the up- and-coming hipness of pretty little Sarasota) and packed in with the right mix of posh little hor d’oevres and cheeky cocktails. This particular G2H2 was uniquely special, as it took place at the groundbreaking headquarters. is the No. 1 gay-owned, gay-travel agency in the COUNTRY, and it was an absolute treat to gossip with their outgoing, charming staff all about the underworld of the Gay Cruise.

Feeling a tad star-struck, Factory Girl spoke directly to Al and Chuck all about their latest Mayan Adventure cruise which sounds like a Factory Girl Dream: Drag-Stars, Miami, Key-West, Mexico, private chartered ship …

The highlight of G2H2 is always its handsome, blonde-haired and blue-eyed host, Josh Beadle. Josh Beadle is the founder of Beadle Media, which produces Sarasota’s most fabulous events: Cream Thursdays at Ivory Lounge, G2H2, and L2H2 just to name-drop a few. Super ambitious and hilarious, Beadle always creates a fabulous, friendly and exciting ambiance (akin to the likes of parties attended in LA, Miami, NYC or Rio.)  He is a true creative force, and Factory Girl is proud to call him a personal friend. Now, girl, get your tickets for your next gay cruise before it’s TOO LATE.
