I gotta say a little piece of me died a little to learn that this year wouldn’t have a Pride Gaycation as I’ve been going to it for, I dunno, like 8 years or something? (Ask Mary, she has a better memory than me.) But I’m super stoked that it is actually not absent, just combined with one of the best newer parties, the amazing Thursday jam Laid Out, to make the super opener that is #NSFW. (What is it with the hashtag party names this year? I mean, if you were going to do a mashup why not just go with Gayed Out?)
To make sure everybody feels welcome, the promoters are keeping the cover to a low $5. This isn’t a party for a select few — they want to see everybody celebrating the beauty of collective pride.
The theme is “we just wanna party” (duh), it’s hosted by the irrepressible George Ray Babycakes and the killer DH lineup includes:
Bruce LaBruiser (Dirtbag)
KKost (Pony / Seattle)
Mr. Charming (Gaycation!)
Gossip Cat (Laid Out/ Bridge Club)
It is but a meager 5 bucks and since it promises both sex and LULZ, I’m totes there.

Organizer and DJ Roy-G-Biv aka Katey Pants knows how to throw a party. Lines have gone around the block for the past 2 years this Pride event has gone down. This year you can avoid that stress (and save 3 bucks) by getting pre-sale tix. And believe me you’ll want to. With young Rye Rye, the future of hip hop headlining the bill this party is bound to be more popular than ever.
Hosted by the flawless Chanticleer Tru (of Magic Mouth and other projects), musical performances by Rye Rye and Bomb Ass Pussy, and DJ stylings of Roy G Biv, Nark, Mr. Sister and Gossip Cat this might just be the party to be at Saturday night for the queer crowd.
