The Black Party

April 6–7
Where can you find thousands of men wearing their kinkiest gear and indulging in almost every fetish imaginable? Head to The Black Party. This year, The Saint at Large Presents what they are calling “Caligula – The Last Party” at the New York Expo Center in the Bronx. Music will be provided by Byrell the Great, Roi Perez b2b Ryan Smith, Boris (Berlin), Mike Servito and DJ Harvey. Entertainment will include “Strange Live Acts.” No liquids or cameras will be admitted, and there’s a mandatory cellphone check – but almost anything else goes.

Superball Amsterdam

Paris isn’t the only hotspot that’s burning! to celebrate of all that is glorious European drag, get your tickets for Superball Amsterdam. “The competition is on fire, the battle is real,” proclaims one emcee. Judging by the video from last year’s event, she’s right. Superball offers an infectious blend of gay wit, hot beats, fierce lewks and a Euro-classy-trashy-kitschy vibe.

International Mr. Leather

If you love leather, make surE THAT you’re in Chicago to greet the community’s new Master at the International Mr. Leather competition. Of course, it’s the parties and events surrounding the competition which are the real draw for many guests. Such sponsors as Mr. S Leather, Sportlube, LeatherWerks and others want to ensure you and your crew have a wild time beginning with the Opening Ceremonies, the Leather Market, and culminating in the Black and Blue Ball.
