"Holiday" was the theme at the 21st Winter Is a Drag Ball hosted by the gender-bending babes of the House of LeMay. This year's Valentine's Day eve party inspired festive costumes related to Christmas, Halloween, St. Paddy's Day, Labor Day and Black Friday, among many others.
Seven Days staff photographer Matthew Thorsen was there to capture the irreverent debauchery. Proceeds from the party benefited the Vermont People With AIDS Coalition.
