Gay & Lesbian events in NYC: Critics’ picks
Hosted by divine comedian Matt Smith McCormick, this outrageous show gives an affectionate nod to the queen of riotous daytime talk, Ricki Lake. Watch as Lucas Connolly, Oscar Aydin, Kristin Seltman, Remy Faulding and Kendall Ketchum bring their most deliciously petty material for this month’s theme, “Listen, Ex! Hear Me Roar…The Game is Over…And I’ll Settle the Score!”
You're guaranteed to be delighted at this weekly showcase beside the piano, hosted by conquering empress of musical comedy Catherine Cohen and downtown cabaret essential Henry Koperski. Expect experimental sets, sing-a-longs to Mariah Carey favorites and other unhinged turns from a line-up of rising gems.
One of our favorite parties in NYC continues its total domination of Friday nightlife with a new residency at Drom. Step into a wicked, wild arena for women-identifying revelers and their queer buddies, featuring aerialists, dope DJs, late-night food and drink specials and go-go dancers of different genders ready to entice you.
