Every year, gatherings around the world are held in what is known today as Pride Festivals. This year, things take on an even more celebratory note as the LGBTQ community commemorates the half-century mark from where the Pride Movement began. Fifty years ago, a raid on Stonewall Inn (a popular hangout in New York where it is said that homosexual activities were happening) sparked the pride movement. And what has grown today as World Pride is being held for the first time in the United States in New York City for the whole month of June.

Are you ready for a whirlwind of fun? Grab on to something firm even if the only thing available to grasp is the package of the person beside you; these events are guaranteed to keep you spinning around.

The parade of play parties starts off on Wednesday, June 26th with "Private Party," NYC's biggest safe sex party for men with average to fit builds ages 18 to 45. This is a highly screened group who practice safe-sex and enjoy mixing and meeting in a drug-free, friendly, all-nude, social and sexual environment. All potential members are screened by phone prior to a brief confirmatory in-person interview. The party takes place in Midtown.

Launching the procession of dance parties is the official kick-off party of World Pride, "One Dream." Masterbeat will make you dance til you drop in one of NYC’s last great luxury nightclubs, the incredible Marquee NYC on June 27th.

"Inferno" is one of NYC's largest and most diverse parties, taking place in a maze-like dungeon-styled play space in Park Slope Brooklyn on June 29th. This is an inclusive queer party that welcomes all genders of people, including trans-people, though it has traditionally been centered around gay bis and trans men.
