This weekend, lose the rainbow (Pride was so last month) and stick to red, white and blue as this great gay nation finds a new reason to party. It’s what the founding fathers would have wanted. From the circuity show of patriotism that is Independence Ptown to the, well, equally circuity Matinee Las Vegas, it’s clear that many of us will be celebrating our freedom by exercising our right to dance shirtless. There’s even a “Book of Mormon” themed party on Fire Island for the religious freedom-lover in you. We expect the white collars won’t stay on long.
