PHOTOS: How do you get 2,500 gay men on the beach in overcast weather? Throw a circuit party! The yearly Ascension Party owned the Fire Island Pines this weekend, bringing in throngs upon throngs of gay men — a few in actual thongs. The marquee event was Sunday’s Beach Party, where DJ Hector Fonseca and DJ Theresa spun alongside a surprise performance from Natascha Bessez. A marvelous display of fireworks shot up from boats in the bay on Saturday, while rumors surfaced that semi-public sex was on display at Friday’s Underwear Party. Check out the photos from the Saturday’s Tea Dance and the Beach Party in our exclusive slideshow. Warning: our photographer has a sweet tooth for abs.
