Gay ghouls don’t get much sex­ier than this! By James Franklin.

The Halloweenie party is the brain­child of part­ners Fred Arens and Ja­son Duguay. For the last 12 years the fun and sexy fundrais­ing event has sup­ported the L.A. LGBT Cen­ter and their out­reach pro­grams in­clud­ing the Alive Music Project and the It Gets Bet­ter Tour of The Gay Men’s Cho­rus.

The party started humbly in the cou­ple’s own home and had since been staged at the Hol­ly­wood For­ever Ceme­tery, on the sound stage of True Blood, and un­der the Space Shut­tle En­deav­our at the Cal­i­for­nia Science Cen­ter. Fred and Ja­son es­ti­mate that the party has raised close to 2 mil­lion dol­lars.

In real life, Ja­son is a 6th Grade school teacher and Fred owns a prop house that rents fur­ni­ture to tele­vi­sion and film pro­duc­tion com­pa­nies. This year, Halloweenie will be hosted at The Be­lasco Theater, one of L.A.’s old­est. If you plan on go­ing, bet­ter get that cos­tume hap­pen­ing and the body in tip-top shape!
