“You know what a house is? I’ll tell you what a house is. A house is a gay street gang.” That quote from Paris Is Burning is the only line in the “about” section of the House of Avalon Facebook Page.
Having spent some time at the shared East Hollywood home of House of Avalon members Hunter Wade Crenshaw, Mark Samuel Monroe, Grant Vanderbilt and Caleb Feeney, I came to realize there really is no other description needed. These guys are just that: a gay street gang, full of color and vibrancy and excitement. Gay in the most outrageous, glamorous and gorgeous way possible.
