L Magazine held its 2nd Annual Nightlife Awards Party at Touch, where the experts and pundits of NYC nightlife gathered together to honor and celebrate the best of professional party-goers and nightlife. It was an excuse for the winners, judges and presenters to recognize their excellence at nightlife. The party included boozing, music performances, dancing and usual debauchery.

The trannies just can't help but stir up drama, drama and more drama! As if it wasn't enough, both awards girls on stage were active porn stars.

Without further ado, the L Magazine's 2nd Annual Awards winners are...

Nightlife legends Michael T. and Michael Formika Jones (aka Mistress Formika) emceed the ceremony with plenty of glitz and glam. Sophia Lamar, the illustrious transsexual nightlife celebrity, won the 2008 Nightlife Icon Award, but when she accepted her award, she admonished the entire crowd for not knowing who she was. Michael T and Michael Formika Jones joined her rant and demanded the crowd move closer to the stage and show proper respect for Sophia. They even expressed their hatred and disgust for the audience!
