Holly Jolly GUMBO at Galapagos Art Space (slide show)
The guys behind the ever-popular GUMBO party went back to where it all started for a holiday throwdown.
Not long ago, Brooklyn's queer nightlife options were relatively limited, so some Kings County boys sought to correct that situation with GUMBO (Gay. DUMBO. Party.) at Galapagos Art Space. The shindig quickly became a hit with cute guys (and girls) who didn't want to cross the East River to mingle. These days, GUMBOs happen in "pop-out" form at venues around the city; for their third annual holiday version, the kids headed back to Galapagos—which seems to be recovering nicely after taking a beating from Hurricane Sandy.
