The Black Party in NYC

Polish your leather and hit the gym: It’s almost time for the Black Party, that annual celebration of all things kinky, which draws some 5,000 revelers from the city and beyond. After more than two decades at Roseland Ballroom, which closed in 2014, Black Party producer the Saint at Large was stuck with the task of finding a new NYC venue that could handle the massive bacchanal. While nothing official has been announced, the organizers have strongly hinted that the BP will going the way of so much New York nightlife: to a warehouse—possibly even one in Brooklyn. Wherever the 36-year-old party ends up, there’s little doubt the event’s devoted fans will follow. After all, it just wouldn’t be springtime in New York without it. When is the Black Party? The Black Party begins at 10 PM on Saturday, March 21, 2015, and continues until Sunday afternoon March 22. Where is the Black Party? The venue for this year's Black Party in NYC hasn’t been announced.

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.

NYC Pride March

March begins at Fifth Ave and 36th St and proceeds south to the reviewing stand at Fifth Ave and 8th St before turning west down Christopher St to Greenwich St. Subway: A, C, E, D, F to W 4th St; D, F, N, Q, R to 34th St–Herald Sq; F to 14th St or 23rd St; L, N, Q, R, 4, 5, 6 to 14th St–Union Sq; 6 to Astor Pl, 23rd St, 28th St or 33rd St. While it's not really offensive to call the NYC Pride March a parade, it's also technically incorrect. The event—which first happened in 1970, marking the one-year anniversary of the Stonewall uprising—is a march for civil rights, not a celebratory parade. But that doesn't mean it isn't fun! Every year, more than a million spectators line Fifth Avenue to take in outlandish costumes, elaborate floats and eye-popping performances. Groups representing the five boroughs and beyond include everything from churches and support groups to social organizations and politicians eager to get out the gay vote.
