HAPPY PRIDE WEEKEND, Y’ALL! I kicked things off in style by getting an exciting bout of food poisoning last night! My stomach is empty but my heart is v. full, and now I’m ready to embark upon a full weekend of les bon temps! I’m about to tell you what you should get up to (even you straights!) over the next few days (including tons of dance parties, an opportunity to get married inside of the Sonos store, a screening of But I’m A Cheerleader and more) BUT FIRST, here’s some GR8 stuff you might’ve missed on BYT this week:

THURSDAY, JUNE 21

  • PLUS there is the glitteriest of glitter parties happening at House of Yes tonight for $0-$15!
  • But will someone for the love of god please take me to see Harry Styles at MSG for $39+?
  • Hungry? Queer? Go eat some BBQ in honor of Pride! Tickets are $80 for Savor Pride at GLWD.
  • Or if you just wanna watch a movie, obviously catch But I’m A Cheerleader at Videology for $12. WHAT A GOOD GAY SCRIPT!
  • For comedy vibes, swing by Industry City for an evening w/ Sasheer Zamata, Anna Drezen and more! Tickets are $15 a pop.
  • AND it’s a new round of Who? Weekly at the Bell House! Tickets to that are ALSO $15.

FRIDAY, JUNE 22

  • Back to Pride vibes! If cosplay is your scene, get on this $35 cruise!

SATURDAY, JUNE 23

  • In non-Pride news, Videology is hosting a $25 screening of Back To The Future ft. bonus boozy chocolate milkshake!

  • Plus learn about production in the sampling era with Baths and Autre Ne Veut at Splice! Also free!

  • Big fan of OK Computer? National Sawdust will host a listening party today for free! Seating is limited, though, so get there early.
  • Speaking of free things, you can allegedly RSVP to catch Florence + The Machine at a secret location tonight! You DO have to have a Spotify Premium account to sign up, but if you’ve got one already it’s worth a shot at getting on the list!
