You’re never prepared when New York Pride Weekend descends upon you. All of a sudden, bars teem with fresh blood and confetti is everywhere. For the next three days, there’s no shortage of things to do, and plenty of tourists to do them with.

Head over to GayCities New York Pride Guide for an exhaustive rundown of the weekend’s many events — from the parade to the rally and special events all over town. Looking for some particularly over-the-top parties? Well, take a look below.

Furball NYC

fb_12976900_10154179562257755_8414501789343977085_o
Game plan: Slug down the hair of the dog that bit you, then barrel into this beefy, burly burlesque aimed at cubs, bears, and hairy Toms and Dicks. Two dance floors seductively groan under the fancy footwork of roughly (ruff-ly?) 500 jolly revelers, while DJs Jack Chang, Corey Craig, Matt Effect, and Benson Wilder dig deep into the crates to spin you into a fearsome frenzy of Prideful pirouettes. 637 W 50th St, furballnyc.ticketleap.com; 10:00pm to 6:00am

Bathhouse

Well, this could be sleazy. A legion of over thirty hired “towel dancers” and “living Roman statues” will be muscling their way through the cavernous XL Nightclub for Bathhouse’s 2nd Annual Pride bacchanal. This study in salaciousness by promoter Brandon Voss promises an old-school XXX theater, a “towel only” locker room, and, erm, spa treatments. (You may need them at some point in the night.) Music by DJ W Jeremy provides the aural soundscape to accompany your every regret. 512 West 42nd Street; Info & VIP: 212.481.6203; Friday, June 24, 2016; 11:00pm to God only knows

Fantasy

Shh, silence! Beneath Times Square lies a hidden disco utopia that goes by the name The Diamond Horseshoe. Tonight, promoter Brian Raffety overtakes the $20 million dollar mega-club to provide cloudy revelers with an assaulting barrage of flashing lights, delirious sounds, performance art, and perverse special effects. This year’s theme is simply “neon,” so don your most eye-searing ’80s leggings, sploosh palmfuls of Manic Panic into your hair, sling rainbow rings onto every wiggly digit, and just go be an unmitigated loon. 225 W 46th St (at Seventh Ave), nycpride.org.; Friday, June 24, 10:00 pm to 5:00 am

Dance on the Pier

Celebrating its 30th year, Dance on the Pier still serves as NYC’s largest fundraiser for NYC Pride. Expect the event to close out the weekend’s festivities with a delirious fireworks display over the Hudson River that will alternately delight and terrify the crowd, depending on the state of their mind in that final hour. Fergie headlines — expect all her biggest hits, from “Glamorous” to “Glamorous.” Hudson River Park, Pier 26, nycpride.org; Sunday, June 26, 2:00 pm to 10:00 pm

Only One Candidate Looked Presidential At The Debate. It Wasn’t The Orange One.

by JohnGallagher September 26, 2016

For most Americans, tonight’s debate was the most time they’ve ever spent with Donald Trump. With any luck, it filled them with horror. For sheer unhinged lunacy, Trump was hard to beat. He can’t ever admit that he makes a mistake, so he doubled down on his birtherism lies.  He denied saying things he was proven to [...]

It Only Took Twenty Minutes For Trump To Unleash His Dom Side

by JohnGallagher September 26, 2016

Well, that didn’t take long. Donald Trump decided that the way he proves he looks presidential is to start shouting over the woman in the room (and the African-American moderator). Unfortunately for him, Hillary isn’t a sub. If anything, she’s showing that she’s the dom here by goading Trump. Her line that he’s not paying any taxes [...]

Donald Trump Kicks Off The Debate By Thanking His Dad and The Housing Crisis

by JohnGallagher September 26, 2016

Donald Trump is off to a great start: he acknowledged that he was born with a silver spoon in his mouth and that he hoped to profit off the housing crisis.  And God bless Clinton for saying that Trump lives in his own reality. If by reality, you mean make-believe universe, that’s totally accurate.
