One history making original joined another this past Saturday night, as Emmy nominated actress and LGBT advocate Laverne Cox (Orange Is The New Black) hosted the official opening of Liaison Nightclub inside Bally’s Las Vegas – the first gay nightclub in a casino. Cox is the first transgender actress to be nominated for an Emmy Award.

Arriving at Liaison following her iHeart Radio Festival presentation, Cox effortlessly walked the red carpet in a stunning kelly green Stephen Mikhail dress accentuated by an Edie Parker clutch and lavish silver accessories including a neck piece by Haute Hippie and jewelry by Rue Gembon, Lulu Frost and Miriam Salat.

Other talent attending the evening included “Pin Up” star and Playboy’s former Playmate of the Year Claire Sinclair, “Absinthe” performer and “America’s Got Talent” finalist Butterscotch, cast members of the new Las Vegas burlesque revue show “Limelight,” cast from “Tony n’ Tina’s Wedding” and cast from “Legends,” to name a few.

Liaison Nightclub, the game-changing LGBT nightlife venue created by Victor Drai and set on the Las Vegas Strip at Bally’s, is a 7,000 square foot nightclub featuring sexy dark finishes of gold and black.
