Welcome back to another W-E-E-K-E-N-D, you guys! The Pride vibes continue the next few days with PLENTY of good stuff going on, like queer dance parties, a free Big Freedia show in Central Park, a free outdoor screening of To Wong Foo (our GIF theme, duh!) and more! Besides all of that, you can take an astrology class for witches, take the SATs drunk, hang out with Mark Ronson at Elsewhere and everything in between. Before we get into all of ye olde details, here’s some rad stuff you might’ve missed on BYT this week if you were too busy watching the FIFA Women’s World Cup like I was!

Thursday June 13

  • Kicking things of in tunes land, my top pick is Princess (Maya Rudolph and Gretchen Lieberum’s Prince cover band) at Irving Plaza! Tickets are $32.50+.
