Josephine Baker once said: “He was my cream, and I was his coffee, and when you poured us together, it was something.” The Queer POC community has always been a vital part of LGBT culture and at these nightlife events, you can party with the crème de la crème. Along with the best gay bars and lesbian bars in NYC, these queer POC parties make up the diverse LGBTQ rainbow.

Castro Bar

Being one of the only gay clubs in Washington Heights, the Castro caters to all shapes, colors and sizes. But on Papi Latin Saturday’s they specialize in the caramel and with free admission, this is one fiesta you don’t want to ditch. Sweat it out on the dance floor with DJ Anarki spinning new and old Reggaeton or have a Presidente at the bar with cute go-go dancers.
