Best (and worst) of gay 2009

And what we're looking forward to in 2010.

1980s redux
While we were never quite comfortable with the return of leggings and mullets, we are excitedly anticipating the revival of Tony Kushner's '80s-set Angels in America, to be directed by Michael Greif as part of Signature Theatre Company's 2010/2011 season.

Going Gaga (Jan 20--24)
As if her fierce charm hasn't already been enough to enlist the gays as fans, Lady Gaga's emergence as a queer activist this year really sealed that deal. Her concert dates at Radio City for four nights in late January are part of the not-to-be-missed Monster Ball tour.

Beary exciting
Two new soirees geared toward the hirsute set already have our attention: Scruff Lodge from Robert Valin (Truck Stop, Daddy, Urban Bear Weekend NYC) and Damian Cote (Buddies at Nowhere), coming in mid-January to a location yet to be determined, and a new monthly Snaxx dance event from DJs Rich King and Gustavo and promoter Derek Scott Graves. Also on its way is a new and improved F Word, moving its dancing masses to Rebel and promising a slew of lovable hosts and special guests.
