Besides listing everyone’s events and interviewing folks in the scene, Thotyssey also produces acclaimed events of her own! It’s Pride Week, and we’re all over the place…
- Tuesday, 6/21. The Pride Week installment of our game night LEVEL UP at Atlas Social Club, featuring gamesmaster Shane Cherry! It’s a laid back affair featuring board games, card games, strategy games and the very popular Super Smash Bros weekly tournament! The games begin at 8.
- Wednesday, 6/22. Thotyssey presents the “Bacardi Party” at The Manhattan Monster Bar, a Hump Day, All-Night Pride Kick-Off sponsored by the good people of Bacardi! Dance the night away surrounded by the nearly naked beautiful boys of Spunk, watch pop up shows from our iconic & hilarious emcee Holly Dae plus amazing special guests Tina Twirler, Vena Cava, Nani Tsunami, WorshipHer and Abel Rey! Chances for free booze, Pride merch and prizes all night! This will be a night to get twisted.
- Thursday, 6/23. Thotyssey joins forces with TH/RST Group for “Pride of Park South!” If you like your Pride events to be fun and social without getting crushed by crowds, while also being outdoors on a beautiful garden rooftop of a posh Midtown East hotel overlooking the skyline, with your own free table to mingle with Judies and a chance to catch one of NYC’s top drag hostesses Bootsie LeFaris and hot newcomers Pink Pancake and Lanyé Armön up close and personal… well, this is the event for you. What’s more, it’s from 6pm to 10pm, so it’s early enough to go home with good cheer or to pop on to the next kiki. I’m looking at this as a chance to actually catch up and chat with old friends, and so should you. But the individual tables are getting reserved very quickly (they’re free, after all), so RESY yours now!
- Friday, 6/24. I’m back at the judges’ table for a special “All Winners” edition of NYC’s biggest drag competition, Lady Liberty! This time we’ll be in an all new venue: HK Hall, aka the former Stage 48! Drag Race star Brita Filter is hosting once again, alongside Jasmine Rice LaBeija. The winner gets $3000! Brought to you by Vincent Cooper and Impulse Group.
- Saturday 6/25 & Sunday 6/26. Not confirmed, but chances are I’ll be wrist-banding the kids at the door at Pieces Bar! It’s obviously gonna be profoundly packed all night, so come early if you can! Expect drag hosts and all sorts of shenanigans!
