The weekly dance party Misster, for those that aren’t aware, is a party “for people who like to dance.” This week they are “spotlighting the makers and actors of The 3 Bits web series.” One of the cast members is named Erin, she’s a very good actress. The police interrogated her because she posted a video on YouTube of her sniffing coke off a baby (it wasn’t real, but please, it’s not like the baby cares). At Misster this Wednesday night Erin, with her cast mates, will be promoting their Kickstarter campaign. They need all our coins to continue their hilarious series and are willing to do anything they can to convince you to hand over some cash...even double penetration! Speaking of sex, two of our favorite CockyBoys will be go-go-ing: Max and Levi. They are such sweet bottoms. DJs Mursi Layne and Amber Valentine will be playing music — expect performances, a raffle and an open bar from 10-11PM. They tell us it’s “gonna to be bananas.” I believe them.
It was a night full of sexy latinos at Von
I love the Rusty Knot, that out of the way, weird little 50’s nautical bar on the west side highway. It’s the sort of place you have to venture to unless you’re one of the chosen few who live in the Meatpacking or West Village. That means that the crowd is naturally a little cuntier than most other places. On Sunday Le Tigre (and now MEN) band member JD Samson (pictured) throws a very afternoon/evening party called Scissor Sundays. They serve food and delicious cocktails and JD and guest DJs provide the backing music. Since the bar is on the West Side Highway you also get to witness a pretty fantastic sunset. This Sunday is you chance to attend to attend the party and participate in Visual AIDS’ Day With(out) Art. This initiative was launched “in 1989 to mourn those we have lost and to promote a broader awareness of the crisis.” Before the party join the Visual AIDS crew for a “walk through SoHo and the West Village — led by Alex Fialho. In a spirit of lively remembrance, writers, curators, and artists will read briefly at cultural stomping grounds, former residential addresses, and other haunts of AIDS involved artists/activists/public intellectuals along the way.” The walk will conclude at the Rusty Knot where you can share a drink with friends and lovers and thank god/Buddha/science/Oprah that you’re still alive. Sorry to get so deep, but sometimes we all need a healthy reminder.
The launch of a sexy new latino party
Puerto Rican papi Santana Williams is bringing us a much needed brand new party in NYC starting this Sunday, December 1st. As described on the flier for the event ‘Papi Champú‘ is ”a night for papis and their admirers.” This sounds like a very promising night, since most gay parties these days are about white men trying to go home with white men. I’d imagine that the lack of interracial sex can get a little boring after a while, so this could be a nice change for you boys. I had the chance to chat with Santana and he shared his excitement with me about his new venture, “I’m going for a very specific concept/vibe here. I was raised in Puerto Rico and I wanna have the perfect combination of the very ‘hood bars’ and steamy papis…” That’s right papi!
Opening set will be provided by Santana himself followed by DJs, Mazurbate, Dicap, Village Raid and DRFNKNSTN. Hosted by “us papis,” Rio Sport, Gio Mjavanadze, Marques Nolan and Mani Motarjemi. Probably the most important piece of information that you need to know — they are featuring “exotic latino go-go’s.” I’m going to leave you with the following famous words that will come in handy if you hit it off with a hot papi at this party: “Ai papi, that feels good! Oh papi, harder!” Trust me, it works everytime.
Here’s another selfie from Santana, enjoy it…
FREE before 9:00PM, $5 after, 8:00PM-2:00AM, 3 Bleecker at Bowery in the basement, NY, NY.
I bet you ate too much Thanksgiving turkey...Sweat that turkey fat at this queer dance party, that has been going strong for a while now and with the list of upcoming DJs they have, it doesn’t seem they’ll stop anytime soon. This time around the guest DJ is Angel Boi (Miss Hot Rabbit/Miss LEZ 2013). It’s at the fabulous and legendary Monster bar where “a portion of the night’s proceeds will be donated to the Native American Rights Fund.” Expect the usual old school cruising, cheap drinks including their special $9 Frozen Margarita which they say it’s “the city’s strongest!,” I hope they make it with freshly squeeze juice and not with a mixer for that price. Expect “Sexy go-go magic” by RAD and Mercedes and the perfect excuse to continue your thanksgiving intoxication, #YOLO
Time flies… I barely remember the first time I came to this party, I think I got too drunk. Ladyfag was doing her best hosting duties giving us some strong shots, who knows what kind of liquor was in them. Bitch knows how to keep a party going for sure, that’s why this party has been going strong for 1 year now. In gay party years that’s like a long term relationship.
This Friday, November 29, the party is celebrating its one year anniversary with an exciting post-turkey intoxication lineup. Miss Honey Dijon, Will Automagic and Michael Magnan will keep you dancing off the Thanksgiving pounds. It will be hosted by some of our favorite cunts in NYC: Amanda Lepore, Juliana Huxtable, and of course the irrepressible Ladyfag. Don’t bother with Black Friday sales and wear something you already own, it’s going to get dirty anyways.
FREE before midnight, $5 after, 11:11PM, 244 East Houston St. NY, NY.
Earlier this month I received a small bright pink envelope in the mail from Europe containing the invite to this party. I was over the moon with excitement when I opened it and pulled out a postcard, because no one really sends party invitations in print format these days, which is sad right? We really need to step it up, we are in New York City after all. Here’s what the invite said: “BUTT Magazine & Secret Project Robot Present CLUB BUTT with The Men of the 2014 BUTT calendar.” My face made it in the 2014 calendar, albeit in a very tiny photo that you almost have to squint to see. I’m assuming they did this because I’m Latin, you know, it’s cheaper to print white boys since they have less pigment in their skin and consume less ink. Regardless, I’m glad they printed that photo, I mean, I used it on Facebook and on Instagram, so clearly I must love it. Anyways, back to the party. “Music is by DJ Ryan Smith of Wrecked in NYC & Aaron Clark of Honcho in Pittsburgh.” Plenty of friendly, and perhaps not so friendly men (some BUTT boys can be cunty) from the calendar will be in attendance, something for everybody...
It’s so hard to keep up all the parties these days, you barely finish a hangover before you start drinking again... It could be overwhelming, especially if you’re one of those homos that gets FOMO (fear of missing out). This party started late in the summer with hosts Joe Sturm & Dan Allegretto (both pictured), Dan told me that he used to frequent One Last Shag because a friend of his used to bartend there...“I would hang out, drink frozen margaritas, and play music off my iPod. When Joe got out of work he would usually come and do the same. Someone offered us the Monday happy hour DJ shift because there wasn’t one and we were always there. Now it’s once a month on a Wednesday.” It sounds like the perfect party to start the gay week. It’s a very chill vibe, Dan put an image of Britney Spears with the homophobic model (don’t even get me started) Tyson Beckford on the FB page as suggestion for the “general vibe” of the party. You can expect “a very diverse crowd,” and as far as music they’ll “play a lot of female r&b and other clubbier stuff later in the night…” It’s an early party, but it gets turnt.
LadyFag and her boyfriend/drag buddy/lighting designer Seva Granik have been busting their butts planning the latest edition of their Shade party. We’ve seen bits and pieces of what’s in store on Lady’s Instagram, and have been feverishly lusting after every morsel of information we’ve come across. Yesterday we received the full story. According to the duo the event is a “dystopian homage to Detroit, a city with a long and storied musical past, and its post-modern spirit, and the sad state of affairs that we find it in these days, but with a party twist, obv.” To bring this vision to life the night is built around “the legendary Detroit DJ Assault, the godfather of ghetto house and booty, the infamous man behind Ass N Titties.” Sharing the music duties will be Mess Kid who is also from Detroit, and “originally a techno DJ but has crossed over into many other genres plus Michael Magnan, Shade’s resident DJ.” I can guarantee Seva will be serving up a whole night’s worth of cool lighting displays. Their should also be lots of colorful outfits to help you forget its 40 degrees outside and of course plenty of shady young men just waiting to make out with you in dark, dank corner of the club.

Images from Church Dublin a monthly party in Ireland
Once a month, there is a service unlike any other in Catholic Ireland — one fuelled by a hedonistic celebration of sin. Church Dublin is one of the city’s hottest new gay-friendly club nights, and those that answer the High Priests’ (Dave Byrne, Kyle Barnett and James Kavanagh) call to worship offer glimpses of a very progressive, very eclectic, and very attractive future.
To date, each event has been held at The Pint down Eden Quay, a fitting venue spanning multiple floors connected by winding stairs and even offering a large open-air smoking deck. However, it is the central dance-floor where sinners gather and, in the shadow of looming crucifixes, a gorgeous array of Irishmen and women stumble and sway at the foot of the altar.
Biblical themes so far have included the Immaculate, Baptism, the Garden of Eden, and a special night of Halloween Necromancy. The range of local DJ’s passing through Church also means that various voices have joined together in the creation of an intoxicating repertoire of Hymns, which has included the likes of Azelia Banks, Cyril Hahn, Disclosure, M83, Eurythmics and M.I.A.
Church Dublin takes its inspiration seriously: it’s an event that not only welcomes all types of people, but thrives off the diversity of its congregation. It is this rejection of stigma that draws such a vibrant group each month — by celebrating those typically castigated as sinners, Church shows the inclusiveness that should characterise a house of worship. The truth of these debauched papal parties resonates, penetrating even the daze induced by remarkably well-priced ‘Holy Water’.
Typically occurring on the third or fourth Saturday of the month, at the unbeatable cover of €5, Church is an absolute must for anyone visiting the Emerald Isle. What’s more, for those with flexibility it is something to keep in mind when planning an Irish get-away. I first stepped up to the pews while on a visit to friends from my home in Scotland. Four days later, I’d already booked tickets back to coincide with the next event.
So if any of you are in Dublin on November 23rd, come to Church — follow the lead of Dublin’s finest and fall to your knees in fervent worship of His word.
Holy fuck, this party is bananas, and definitely for people who don’t have to wake up early on Friday morning. Let’s start with the basics. The organizers are describing it as a “ratchet warehouse rave,” and an “art rave gala.” Both those terms are very 2013, on trend ways of saying it’s a ‘warehouse party.’ We’ll forgive them for their hyperbole because every homo and his mother seems to be going to this thing and it looks like a lot of fun. You can expect all sorts of ratchetness from host #Cuntmafia and his “proper villains” Joey Labeija, Wc Kids, DJ Speak Easy and Haruka Salt. There’s also going to be performances by Cakes Da Killa (pictured), Contessa Stuto, Jay Boogs, Quay Dash and Kay Rizz & K-OP. There’s not going to be a dull moment at this party so don’t show up too late, and wear something cute, that last look you wore at that thing you went to was not good. #GAYLETTERSEESALL.
With a special performance by Morgan McMichaels at the Ace Hotel Palm Springs
It’s been awhile since we’ve featured a serious music party (well a month). Luckily our ears and feet will have plenty to keep them busy this Friday as the Brooklyn and Montreal team of Bangcity bring us Cloud Nine featuring some of the most “forward thinking and influential DJs” from those two cities. It’s all happening at Paperbox warehouse (you had me at warehouse) in BK. We’re told there’s going to be “very gay and very cute deejays/beatmakers/producers” including Tommy Kruise, Sweater Beats, Mursi, Suzi Analogue, Helen Harris, Moneyworth and the night’s host, the legendary Ponyio. “It will be a night full of future bass, trill, trap, house, grime, ballroom, baseline, vogue and twerk.” Doesn’t that sound great? We just spent the weekend soaking our livers in booze in Palm Springs, but I reckon by Friday we should be good to go again. Especially after we got this message from KC filling us in on what to expect for the night: “The party is going to be cute and turn your vagina inside out and inside again!” So kesh.
This is a bit of a strange event, it's happening this Friday Nov.8, it’s not for any one group of gays...it’s for ALL groups of gays. It’s a giant Queer mixer that “sets the stage for making new connections, whether new friends, professional networking, or sparking romantic interest for singles and the otherwise available.” It goes on: “This is a safer space for folks across the LGBTQGNC spectrum.” I mean, these guys are so inclusive they’ve even add a couple more letters at the end of that acronym that I’ve never even heard of. I thought GNC was where you got your vitamins from? In all honesty we love how welcoming this event is. And so does everyone else considering that their FB page already has over 500 RSVPs...Expect music for the night by DJ Tanner (Rumors, Hey Queen!) plus every gay, lesbian and BTQGNC person in NYC to turn up. It’s a much better alternative to Grindr. Don’t be afraid to mix!
