“Rough Trade At Luna Park”

Featuring Strange Live Acts
(New York, NY) - The Saint At Large, gaydom’s preeminent party, announces this year’s RITES XXXIV: THE BLACK PARTY theme: “Rough Trade at Luna Park.” Held on the weekend closest to the vernal equinox at the legendary Roseland Ballroom, the Black Party has firmly established itself as “the world’s sexiest party” and Gay New York’s biggest night of the year.
Set on the outskirts of Rome in an abandoned amusement park, LUNA PARK comes to life for one-night only as a band of Moto-Gladiators convenes for their annual bacchanalia.
Winner of the 2012 Glammy Award for Best Nightlife Event, the annual event marks the beginning of Spring with a ritual ceremony intended to shed a hibernating tribe’s winter skin. World renown for its its ambitious productions, cutting-edge innovations and spectacular staging, the Black Party has broken the mold to any comparable event. It stands alone as a spectacle attracting attendees from around the globe longing to experience a slice of New York’s heyday as the nightlife capital of the world.
Complete with Strange Live Acts, a cinematically-inspired immersive environment set to a progressive underground sound, it consistently taps the zeitgeist for its loyal audience. Its themes, played out as a 5-act operas, appeal to a fashion forward fetish clan eager to reveal their darkest fantasies at this one-night only, no holds barred, bacchanalia.
Now in its 32nd year, The Black Party draws more than 5,000 attendees and remains one of the largest gay dance parties in the world. Respected world wide for its notorious productions, it has retained its reputation for cutting edge innovation and staging, superstar international DJs and world class performances.

J.M. Where are you from? and what kind of child were you?
I’m the baby of six kids, raised by my siblings and former missionary parents in St. Paul, Minnesota, on and around a particularly liberal and international Liberal Arts college campus where my dad taught French. Growing up, I had no idea that protests, flag burning, public drunkenness and the like … were not the norm, nor was a strong emphasis on volunteerism and ‘Good Samaritan’ service work.
J.M. What inspired you to become a model?
J.M. We know that modeling is your passion, what is your day job?
I’m a voice-over narrator. I do promos and trailers. I do a good chunk of the VOs you hear on FOX, some of CBS, all of Bloomberg, about half of Nickelodeon, and most of the 20th Century Fox movies aimed at kids and family audiences.
J.M. What kind of shoots do you like to do?
I’m pretty much done with commercials shoots. They don’t really interest me any more. Men have an advantage with modeling in that we can typically work for more years than women can. But if things aren’t interesting to me, if I don’t feel inspired or challenged, I tend not to do them. Hollywood has been kind enough to pay me well for stuff I do, so I have the option to pick and choose what I work on.
J.M. Would you consider yourself a good boy or a bad boy? And what would others consider you to be?
As coy as it may sound, it depends on who you ask. I’m very much a mix of angel and devil, and different people see in very different roles. Mostly I’m a good boy — I do a lot of philanthropy and service work, don’t stay out late or hang with the party crowd. As far as bad boy goes … in my day I’ve been involved in a romantic tangle or two. (grin)
J.M. You seem to be a Renaissance man and have your hands in various charities and political arenas? What is your personal agenda?
I’m and advocate and activist for civil rights and religious tolerance.
J.M. What is your life-long dream?
May I choose more than one? I’d like to see the world be a kinder place for all people. I’d like to see us give each other the benefit of the doubt more. We’re generally horrible to each other, but have it within us to be remarkable. I want to be an agent of change, a walking/talking catalyst to motivate others to find their better self.
J.M. What two celebrities, dead or alive, would you want to have at a dinner with and what would you ask them?
J.M. What is your favorite sexual position?
Favorite position? Employed, beotch!
J.M. If you were an animal what would you be and why?
I’d be a caracal, a medium-sized wildcat native to the very southern U.S. and parts of Mexico and Central America. They’re fierce-looking but kindly, with golden coats, muscled athletic bodies, and giant ears made for listening.
J.M. What exciting projects have you been doing lately and what is in the future for Ben Patrick Johnson?
I’ve been blessed with lots and lots of voice-over work this year — almost 3,500 voice-over sessions total in 2011. I’m helping raise my two teenaged Godchildren. I’m in the middle of writing my sixth novel, which I will complete in 2012. And I hope to do a number of interesting shoots with you, sir!
J.M. What is your favorite quote of all time?
It’s the Golden Rule — not a quote, really, but the foundation of most world religions before they get twisted by our fears, pettiness and desire to control others. If there’s a single useful rule for how to get along in life, this is surely it:
