A Hub for the Hud

In the past month or so, Hudson's own impresario extraordinaire, Rich Volo, a.k.a. Trixie Starr, has taken a break from organizing events (pride parades, bed races, bar game nights, movie nights, dance parties, etc., etc.) to build, a website offering a comprehensive list of all that's happening in Hudson. Gossips has explored the site, which launched yesterday, and can report that it is like the venerable "Ellen's List" on steroids. is still a work in progress. For now, it provides information about businesses--eateries, grocery stores, convenience stores--that are still serving customers during this global pandemic. But there's a technologically sophisticated events calendar (Trixie is a drag queen, but Rich has worked in IT for decades) that allows anyone to post their events. This is particularly important now, because, although no public events or gatherings are happening, art and culture persevere in a virtual format. There's even a forum planned where people can post information about yard sales, lost and found pets, and services like cars and drivers, home repair, and gardening.

Check out and see how it can keep you connected with the community during this unsettling time of isolation.


  1. Thank you for sharing this Carole. And thank you Rich, for putting this together. I just read an article that practicing gratitude is important for one's mental health. So - I'll try to include positive comments on posts/content that I might normally scroll past.
