Gay & Lesbian events
Meet your new girl crush on the dancefloor at this beloved lesbian nightlife institution. The fun and flirty bunnies of Hot Rabbit take over Bushwick's Lot 45 with drink specials, bites, club bangers from DJs Illexxandra and Rosyq, and vogue performances by Omar Mizrahi and the House of Olympus.
Bears, wolves, and otters, oh my! This multi-room bar and club has every caniform you can cruise your way into. You’re guaranteed to find a furry partner at this bondage party, where your wildest fantasies and fetishes come to life. A strict dress code of leather, rubber, belts, and jocks is enforced on the second floor, but the rest of the club is open to any piece of clothing (or lack there of).
Join your three goddesses for a viewing of the Olympic-level gay series, with plenty of sharp-tongued commentary along the way. After the episode, gag to jaw-dropping performances from Surburbia, Havokk and Harajuku (plus special guests), and get down to jams from DJs Kristine Barrilli and Dario Magenta.
RECOMMENDED: Full coverage of Gay Pride You know those street fairs that pop up around the city whenever the weather is nice? The ones everyone pretends to hate, but secretly can't resist walking into? Pridefest is one of those—but with way more sequins. In addition to enjoying the usual street-fair fare—tube socks, hilarious T-shirts, greasy treats—you can pick up information about public health, collect swag from corporate sponsors, and mingle with a crowd full of Pride revelers and shell-shocked Village residents. After things wrap up, you can work off that street food at the Dance on the Pier. Hudson St between Abingdon Sq Park and W 14th St. Subway: A, C, E to 14th St; L to Eighth Ave.
