Mall Goth

The Claire's Edition

MALL GOTH_GAYLETTER

OMG so like my best friend Ashleigh Nicole Smith and I are obvs like the coolest girls in school, we’re not just pretty and smart but we’re also like mysterious because we’re goths. But like all that eyeliner is expensive and I can’t illegally download Evanescence albums anymore because my mom caught me and said its illegal I H8 U MOM sooooo we decided that we needed to get jobs because we’re #independentwomen just like Beyoncé lol.

 

Soooooo Ashleigh and I decided to get jobs at the mall because like we spend all our time there anyway just like getting vanilla bean frappuchinos and flirting with cute boys outside Fye and making fun of the security guards (lol one time we saw one fall off her segway) and we really want jobs at Hot Topic BECAUSE IT’S THE BEST but they said we were too young (WE JUST TURNED 16 UGH) so instead we’re working at Claire’s which is cool I guess because they have lots of black jewelry and fishnets and we get free ear piercings (altho Ash is too scared to get hers pierced LMAO).

 

But like we thought working at Claire’s would be super easy and we’d just have to look pretty and stand around and stuff but we actually have to like work which is so #lame they’re making us interview ppl who want to work there but we’re gonna make it fun! All the candidates have to give us a SHOW SHOW SHOW to prove why they should work at Claire’s and they’d better BRING IT! It’s gonna be so fun and random omg haha!! Radooooooom.

GAYLETTER’S INTERRACIAL AT LOVEGUN

The party is back!!!

Saturday 09.20.14

Party: GAYLETTER’S INTERRACIAL RETURNS

It feels like the right time to bring back our world famous, legendary and racially diverse party INTERRACIAL. There’s a lovely, brand new bar in Williamsburg called Lovegun, and it’s in need of some interracial action. We went their last week for their official opening and it was super hot. If you’ve never been to INTERRACIAL, here’s what you need to do so you don’t look stupid or out of place — go through your Facebook and start contacting all your friends of different races, then invite them to the event — tell them that you really miss them and that you want to party with them. If you are white try to take a break from white people, you can talk to them of course, but keep it to a minimum… I mean we all know there will be lots of white people talking to each other because they’re hard to avoid, but it’s good to have a break. I sound like I’m not into white people, trust me I like them, hello! Interracial! Anyways, I can go on for hours about this topic... Tom and I created this party to try to bring some diversity to queer nightlife and because we love interracial sex. Tom Jackson is going to DJ at 10PM, then Sammy Jo will take over for the rest of the night. Our special host has not been confirmed, but that’s a good thing because it’s gonna be someone really special and we want to surprise you. Trust!

$5, 10:00PM, LOVEGUN, 617 GRAND ST. Brooklyn, NY.

Party: Pat – Eleven

I always wondered if they named this Brooklyn party after the mid 90s, ambiguously gendered SNL character of the same name. I guess I could ask Amber Valentine and JD Samson (the party’s creators), but I don’t really care that much and I’d prefer to just think my theory is correct. None of what I just said has much to do with the party, or what it’s about, so let me get to that. Pat is one of the best parties in BK. It’s a pretty simple concept, expect music by Mike Simonetti, Sparber, JD Samson, Amber Valentine, Robi D Light and Briii Belukha. There’s two rooms, tasty tacos on sale in the garden, and all-night drink specials. Best of all it’s free! Not the tacos, or the drinks, but entry. Which is not half bad. Dance floor pat-downs are also encouraged.

FREE, 10:00PM, Union Pool, 484 Union Ave Brooklyn, NY.

SIDESHOW

A night of freaks and oddities...

Sideshow_september_GAYLETTER

Expect some weird magic tonight at Friends and Lovers. The queer Brooklyn venue hosts Culture Whore’s Bi-Monthly (and far more than bi-curious) “freak circus” bringing all sorts of strange and enchanted creatures to 641 Classon. Hold on tight but don’t be scared, this month’s edition melds the usual party-til-late mentality with a more performance-based showcase to comfort the nerves of those unwilling to get the club turnt up on a Tuesday.

 

If you want to let your freak flag fly and maybe find some likeminded strangers Sideshow is the place to be. Mark Dommu, half of the founding duo of The Culture Whore wrote us “this month we have more freak than ever: drag darlings Lucy Balls (pictured), Madame Vivien V and Momo Shade; synth mistress Louvel; up-and-coming rap sensation Dick Van Dick; experimental dancer Tyler Ashley; and performance art from The Culture Whores themselves, Boywolf and myself. David Sokolowski will be playing weird grooves all night so you can let loose on the floor between shows…” Come experience a miracle, feel the magic and revel in the drag of it all because who needs to wait ’til hump day to see some freaky shit on a stage.

 

$10, 9:00PM, Friends and Lovers, 641 Classon Ave. Brooklyn, NY.

Party: 4 YEAR ANNIVERSARY! MARINATE

The boys of Marinate have been having way too much fun for the last 4 years with their bi-monthly Eastern Bloc party. If you have never attended...what the hell is wrong with you? This Sunday is your chance to make it up to them, they’d really appreciate it, k? We know you might have to work the next day, but it’s New York City — a city designed around the sleep deprived — so suck it up. Here’s what they have in store for the night: Guest DJs include: Nita, Angelo Tursi and resident Dandylion. Hosts are Darke Attoms & David Meanix, there’s sexy go-gos (and GAYLETTER family member) Boywolf with Brock Rustin, plus visuals by Mr. Means. You can’t beat Eastern Bloc for a good time on a Sunday night — the drinks are cheap and strong, and the men fucking on the TV screens are strong too (lol). See you there.

FREE, 9:00PM, Eastern Bloc, 505 E 6th St. New York, NY.

Party: GIRLS

A new bar called Lovegun is officially opening this week in Williamsburg. The bar is brought to you by some of the hot owners of the venues Eastern Bloc and Atlas Social Club. So, of course some brand new parties are coming to it — wooo hooo. Anytime something new opens we get so excited, I am about to pee my pants writing this. Frankie Sharp is taking on Fridays to bring us GIRLS, a party not just about white girls like that popular TV show, but an inclusive party “for everyone.” Frankie told us that we should expect the same drama as his Tuesday party WestGay but way bigger — “It’s on a Friday!!! Now everyone can go!” Music will be provided by DJs Mike Q., Juliana Huxtable, Joey Labeija and DICAP. A special performance by La’Fem Ladosha, Frankie tells me that she’s done “every inaugural party” for him. Now the GIRLS: Milk Queen, Thorgy Thor, Bob TheDragQueen, Pusse Couture, Kia Labeija, Merry Cherry, Christie Maass, Remy Moore, Domonique, Bailey Stiles, Leo Gugu, KRIZZ, Macy Rodman. I mean….those are some fierce bitches! There are also some boys and gogos in attendance but I am not listing them, too many names already and it’s all about the girls! Serve that fish hunty!

$5 BEFORE 12:00AM/$10, 10:00PM, LOVEGUN, 617 GRAND ST. Brooklyn, NY.

Party: Return to Culture by The Tenth Zine

For those of you that live in NYC and don’t know about this super cool publication about black boys, then you really need to pay closer attention to the things that we tell you. The Tenth Zine main focus is to “document the history, ideas and aesthetics of the black gay community.” They are on their way to their second issue — “The Americana Issue” and they’re hosting a party at the Wythe Hotel. It’s a night for “all artists, professors, directors, magazine editors, musicians, activists and others to come together for an evening of pure fun and excitement.” The evening will feature lots of fun things, including music will by DJ Mike Q., with special guest live performances, art installations by Timothy Eugene, the BLKKMARKET pop-up shop, cocktails and a special guest (Cakes Da Killa) who will be “eeaattiing it!” After this party the editors of the magazine will spend the rest of the month crossing the country and visiting 10 American cities in search of more black gay culture that will be featured in the next issue. I’d suggest you go to their party and be prepared to carry.

FREE, 9:00PM-1:00AM, Wythe Hotel, 80 Wythe Ave. Brooklyn, NY.

Art: RED HOT

I can’t think of a better way to start September than with this event — a red hot celebration of ginger men! It’s the NYC launch of the book ‘Red Hot’ by the artist Thomas Knights. He has been photographing all different types of red headed men for a while now for his project ‘Red Hot 100.’ His goal is to stop ginger discrimination and convince the world that redheads are hot. I was already convinced. This project has gotten lots of press around the world, but now we have the opportunity to see all the boys that participated in the project compiled in an exhibition and in a book. He says that it’s the “largest collection of ginger men the world has ever seen...” The launch of the exhibition ‘Red Hot 100’ is happening at BOSI Contemporary (48 Orchard St.) from 8PM-10PM, the show will be open until the 14th, so you still have time to get your ginger on. The official after party is happening at Bedlam at 10PM with lots of NYC peeps and gingers involved: Patrick Crough, Brodanse, Will Francis, Seth Fornea, Chase Hostler, Jacob Blumer, Blake Johnson, Ken Bek and more… Oh and one more very important thing, they also have a calendar launch event (as part of the Lower East Side Art + Fashion) where there’s going to be “topless RED HOT models” on Sept. 7th. Jesus, so many gingers!

FREE, 10:00PM, Bedlam, 40 Ave. C New York, NY.
