About the Book
Jackie 60 was one of the greatest parties in the world. Held weekly on Tuesday nights in the meat packing district of Manhattan from 1990 to 1999 it brought together a diverse mix of people sharing new performance, great music, cutting edge fashion and sexuality in a great club with a little stage that changed weekly with each new theme. Founded by DJ Johnny Dynell, writer and producer Chi Chi Valenti, Fashion Designer Kitty Boots and Choreographer/ Dancer Richard Move they were later joined by Performer / singer Hattie Hathaway. The club welcomed an alternative following of poets, drag queens, butch women, beautiful gay & straight men and artists of every expression and medium to it's
stage and dance floor. This is just a small collection of the wonderful nights I spent there during it's ten year life span.
