Over the past 20 years, artist Mark Beard has collected the works of his great-uncle, painter Bruce Sargeant, whose paintings of athletic men displaying homoerotic athleticism have been largely overlooked since his early death at the age of 40. Now, Beard brings together murals of Sargeant's from around the world, and ushers in his rightful inclusion to the queer canon. The exhibition opens with a launch party on Thursday, October 4.
When it comes to hands-in-the-air, pretension-free queer joy, DJ William Francis always gives the people what they want. The dashing discaire celebrates divas of every great era at this weekly rager, suited perfectly for Club Cumming's timeless East Village vibe.

Club Cumming co-founder Daniel Nardicio and Thirsty Girl Productions' Jen Gapay return with their yearly showcase of male bumpers and grinders from around the world.

One of our favorite parties in NYC continues its total domination of Friday nightlife with a twice-monthly residency at Drom.

We consider ourselves very lucky to be able to party with Horrorchata, Charlene and the other icons of Brooklyn drag at this low-priced monthly kiki. Count on hits from Janet Jackson and Britney Spears and outrageous performances from Bushwig's greatest hits along with DJs like Hannah Lou and Amber Valentine. Serve your look, but prepare to sweat your fake eyelashes right off.
Dig into this dope, dirty night of dancing at the Deep End every Sunday, at which you'll find a game queer crowd not ready to give up its weekend. Look out for rowdy go-go boys and unstoppable drag acts to keep the wild shenanigans going.
Once a month, Club Cumming becomes a Joel Grey and Liza Minnelli cabaret fantasia with a live band, outrageous performers and endless surprises. Leave it to hosts Frankie Sharp, Tim Young and Tyler Ashley to escort you to a queer stage paradise you never dreamed of.
The daringly inventive Meetup group Daddy Retreat hosts this artistic assemblage of bodies at 3F Studios.
