Cole Escola is the First Gay President

The saucer-eyed costar of Logo's Jeffery & Cole Casserole returns with his solo comedy act, which offers to reveal new facets of a talent that gleams with scrappy razzle-dazzle. Blending boyish mischief with dizzy charm and the ruthless coyness of a starlet bent on fame, Escola's comic persona suggests a street urchin raised by The Match Game.

Judy Gold

Gold's long list of accolades includes two Emmy Awards and a pair of American Comedy Award nominations, and she's done specials for HBO, Comedy Central and Logo. Praise for her most recent Off Broadway hit, The Judy Show—My Life as a Sitcom, endured long past its final curtain call, and you'll see why tonight.

Heather Has Two Mommies relaunch

Lesléa Newman's extremely tame children's book Heather Has Two Mommies launched a massive cultural debate when it was first published in 1989, and it remained one of the most controversial books of the 1990s. Today it's hard to see what all the fuss was about, but you can learn all about it at this 25th-anniversary celebration featuring Newman chatting about the book's history and impact with Gay Parent magazine editor Angeline Acain.

Willam: The meWme Show

The only queen ever kicked off RuPaul's Drag Race also happens to be one of the funniest performers—and best singers—ever to come out of that show, and he's rightly become something of an Internet sensation, racking up millions of views with his song parodies and casually bitchy comedy.

Dance on the Pier

RECOMMENDED: Full coverage of Gay Pride Heritage of Pride's official Pride Weekend capper unfolds under the stars, with the skyline glowing to the east and the Hudson shimmering to the west. This year's DJs are Ralphi Rosario, the Cube Guys and Wayne G, plus there's always a variety of live performers—last year's headliner was pop princess Demi Lovato, and don't rule out a last-minute surprise (Jennifer Lopez and Whitney Houston are among the megastars who have dropped by with no advance fanfare). As the dance starts to wind down, cast your eyes to the sky for a fireworks display. For those who don't have to get up early tomorrow, that's your cue to move on and continue the party all over the city well into the night. You'll have no shortage of options.

Teaze

This annual women's dance, formerly known as Rapture on the River, is an alternative to the boy-heavy Dance on the Pier. Happening conveniently after the Dyke March, the party features a flock of sexy dancers and a sweaty crowd filled with girls who (unlike attendees at that other dance) don't have to worry about work in the morning.
