New York's gays certainly are photogenic! Throughout 2012, TONY dispatched photographers to some of the coolest, most important LGBT parties and events in the city. From massive parades and circuit parties to sweaty basement throwdowns and oddball performances, they found a seemingly endless supply of hot people eager to grin, give face, make out and disrobe for the camera. Click through above for many more photos from each event—and be sure to say "cheese" when you see our shutterbugs out and about in 2013.
