Batty Boy

A New Summer Party!!!

BattyBoy_GAYLETTER

The Summer seems to get Gio Black Peter worked up and in a horny mood, that’s why he’s back with a brand new party on July 17th at a secret location. He told me that it’s “a dance party that started in his apartment last Summer and since my apt has a max capacity of 66 boys (remember my last house party?) … I’ve decided to bring the party to a bigger spot to accommodate all my horny gay and bisexual friends.”

 

Music will provided by Gio himself and Drrty Pharms, plus there’s a special performance by the adorable Tyler Ashley — who will be previewing his upcoming show Kidnap Me (it premieres on July 21th at Dixon Place) plus Jessica Yatrofsky of iheartboy.com fame is also doing an installation to set the mood.

 

I highly recommend you attend Batty Boy — trust GAYLETTER with this one. Gio is going to take his pants off at some point during the night, so you are guaranteed to see some peen. What else is happening? Gio adds: “You can expect cute guys with boners in basketball mesh shorts on the dance floor dancing, drinking, making out and performing other fun activities…” OK, got it, we would expect nothing less from you Gio.

 

RSVP for secret location at superbisexuals@gmail.com, 10:00PM.

Joey Arias T-shirt Launch and the party: Strut

JoeyArias_tshirtlaunch_Strut_GAYLETTER

There’s a lot going on tonight at ACME on Great Jones St. First up, at 9:00PM, is the T-shirt launch for the legendary (we don’t use that term lightly) Joey Arias. Who knew that Joey was into T-shirts? Whenever I see her, she’s usually clad head-to-toe in some custom Mugler. I guess these t’s are for when she has some downtime — they’re to be worn around the house, or for a casual walk around the neighborhood. I digress. The T-shirts are in collaboration with Robert W. Richards and Deryck Todd.  Which speaking of Todd, he’s the man responsible for the whole night. He’s enlisted Flotilla Debarge to DJ the event and Joey will also be performing live.

 

After the T-shirt launch stick around for Strut (ACME’s new-ish weekly party). From 11pm onwards, Todd has pulled together an impressive group of hosts for the night (and I’m not just saying that because we’re involved…well maybe a little, but trust it’s a cunt lineup). Here’s who to keep an eye out for: Joey Arias (of course), DJ David Sokolowski, Leo Gugu, Earl Dax, Sam Jones, Matthew Gagnon, Kevin Gallo, Ezra Xavier, Maddelynn Hatter, Damn the Light, Shawn Paul Mazur, Sophia Lamar, and YOU.

 

There’s going to be an ugly sweater contest, and all sorts of trill trouble. Call your dealer, call your dad, we want to see you strut!

 

 FREE (Mention GAYLETTER), 9:00PM-late, ACME, 9 Great Jones St. NY, NY.

Hi, Jemar

Jemar_01_GAYLETTER

Jemar is a 22-year-old from Minneapolis, MN. He’s still living there, but he’s moving to LA at the end of the year. He went to California Institute of the Arts for a couple years to study Theater and Acting. “I’ve been acting since I was 14, my dream job is to be a sucessful actor…” He’s lived with his boyfriend for about 3-months now; they met at a photo shoot. His first sexual experience with a guy was when he was 15. “Most people think I’m straight when they meet me… I’m never afraid to correct them.”

 

When it comes what he likes it’s a boy who’s smart and motivated, “someone who has a drive to be a successful somebody and who’s into fitness.” Jemar works out about 5-6 times a week. His favorite part of his body is his butt, “beause it’s juicy and I can make it clap lol. I get great compliments on it.” That’s a great skill to have in 2014 with all the twerking competition out there. On other guys he likes a nice chest. Also, when it’s time to sleep he goes to bed naked.

 

His ideal date would be “during the day, maybe a day festival/fair or something with adrenaline, then maybe a nice dinner, then go out dancing…” 
His go-to cocktail is a Moscow Mule. He’s the most happy with the company of great friends, acting, working-out and good food. He enjoys being outdoors, he likes to frequent “any moving body of water. There’s something about moving water that relaxes me. I like to go down by the river here.”

 

We asked Jemar to take a few selfies wearing our classic GAYLETTER t-shirt, and some without it. He looks rather sexy, have a look.

Frank O’Hara Fire Island Pines Poetry Festival

Frank O’Hara_FI_GAYLERTER

You may have partied hard the way only Fire Islanders can over Pride and the 4th of July weekends, but wait … there’s more gay fun to be had! This Saturday, July 12th, the Fire Island Pines Arts Project is hosting the Frank O’Hara Fire Island Pines Poetry Festival. We know what you’re thinking: poetry party? Well, as if the line up of big names such as Edmund White and Saeed Jones isn’t enough to send you rushing to pack your weekend bag, organizer Adam Fitzgerald insists that, far from a sombre affair, attendees can expect “mosh pits, flying dildos and thongs!”

 
From 4:00-6:00PM, poets will be reading selected poems of Frank O’Hara as well as their own in celebration and memorial of one of our most iconic gay poets. Sadly, O’Hara’s love of Fire Island took on a tragic hue when he died in a freak accident on the beach in 1966. At only $10 a ticket, this beautiful tribute to a beautiful man is an absolute summer must.

Free Concert: New York Philharmonic in Prospect Park

Long-Meadow-Ballfields_GAYLETTER

Who doesn’t love a picnic? Pack up the wine, cheese, deviled eggs and a bag of cherries and head over to Prospect Park tonight around 7:00PM, lay down your blanket and pop that cork because the fucking NEW YORK PHILHARMONIC is putting on a free concert that starts at 8:00PM sharp. I’m bringing some lovely tomme de savoie, a baguette and a bottle or two of organic Malbec that I plan on having all to myself, unless you’re cute in which case I’ll share.

 

The program for the evening will include some Strauss, Smetana (Widely regarded in his homeland as the father of Czech music, I googled) and the overture fantasy from Romeo and Juliet, by none other than Pyotr Tchaikovsky. I also hear, although it may be a rumor, that there will be fireworks. The brilliant conductor and music director of the Philharmonic Alan Gilbert will be at the helm so be assured it will be an impeccable night of music. Arrive on the early side to secure a good spot, I’m sure the savvy New Yorkers will come fast and hard for an opportunity like this!

 

FREE, 8:00PM, Prospect Park at the Long Meadow Ballfields.

The boys of Bonnaroo 2014

A photographic trip to the famous festival

Bonnaroo_GAYLETTER_Opener

Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival nestled in the heart of Tennessee is an 80,000 strong convergence of campers all loyal to the the high-five ideology of “radiating positivity” while listening to some world famous musical acts. Elton John’s set was a showstopper as were those by the amazing Jack White, Frank Ocean, Lionel Richie, Die Antwood, Disclosure, Janelle Monaé and Bobby Womack (his final show before his recent death). All together there were about 100 bands playing throughout the 4 days. But the music itself is only half the Bonnaroo equation. The magic of “being on the farm,” as they call it, is living in a tent, floating around in the heat, and meeting new friends in the bliss of the moment.

 

Ah, but I’ve been to Coachella, I hear you say. Bonnaroo couldn’t be father from the experience of it’s somewhat superficial West Coast cousin. Sleeping in a tent and living 4 days off-the-grid creates an atmosphere of “we’re in this together” amongst the Bonnorovians.

 

There’s plenty to do at the festival besides listen to music. Just take a walk to “This Tent,” “That Tent” and “The Other Tent.” This year there was comedy from Broad City, a giant waterside, World Cup broadcast on giant a screen under an artsy color wheel tent, and of course, the Silent Disco. If there was ever a worthy contender to Woodstock, Bonnaroo might be just be it. This year I got lost there photographing all manner of freaks and geeks, and some wicked hot boys too.
