The Black Party in NYC is one of the best things to do in spring, and over 5,000 of the city’s most daring men will bring their wildest, skimpiest, and kinkiest looks. The all-night and day blowout is also one of the best gay parties of the year. The big 3-8 edition of this fetish fest promises high-flying aerial sex stunts, “strange” performances and an endless supply of leather. Speaking of which, you can dress in full fetish gear or come as you are—so long as you feel sexy and don’t make an ass of yourself. But if you’re looking for a fresh harness, check out our guide of places to nab a costume including some of the best sex shops in NYC.

What is the Black Party in NYC?

The Black Party is NYC's largely attended gay party, which features contemporary gay erotic art, culture and performers, however deets on NYC’s biggest all-night-and-all-day dance party are intentionally kept in the dark. The crowd (last year more than 5,000 men—and some adventurous women—attended) stick to a hush-hush mentality. While you can expect much of the same entertainment as last year’s event (hot-wax rituals and Japanese rope bondage included), we heard that the team behind the event is going back to the Black Party’s roots and taking it more underground.

When is the Black Party in NYC?

The Black Party is at 11pm on Saturday, April 1, 2017, and continues until 2pm on Sunday, April 2, 2017.

Where is the Black Party in NYC?

The venue for this year’s high-kink bonanza is TBA.

Ha. I love the emphasis on the "NYC" venue. Brooklyn is Brooklyn. Sure a borough of New York City. But it is NOT New York. Why try to make people swallow a sugar coated pill?

The Black Party will be in Brooklyn. As simple as that.

I am sure it can be an awesome party and time will tell if it was or not.

But it is Brooklyn. Brooklyn, Brooklyn, Brooklyn. Accept it, deal with it. Don't try to hide it.
