Hey, potential friend or frenemy!

Russell Kohlmann is here, he’s queer, and he’s always ready to bust a move! If he’s not busy joining the ladies of “Sex and the City” for brunch, he’s in his room doing a Britney Spears dance that’ll make you pee your pajamas with laughter.

Affectionately known as Ruffles by friends, Russell is living that “#hyphlife” as a writer-director-actor-producer. You can catch him in NYC, jazzing up the cabaret scene, and on various screens in the upcoming feature “Batsh*t Bride” and “Window Shopping,” his first self-produced short.

Sparkle, baby, shimmy, shine! Move out of the way, it’s Russell’s time!
