PHOTOS: Gay Superheroes Team Up At Griffin Sundays In New York


New Yorkers are usually known for having a minimalist sense of fashion: black coats, black shoes, black dresses, and black socks. But when it comes to Brian Rafferty and Shawn! Paul Mazur’s Sunday-night party at The Griffin, colorful costumes are the norm.

One recent do had a superhero theme, with gay partygoers decked out in capes, masks and spandex.

Rafferty tells Queerty about another theme they recently used:

“This past Sunday was our Sluts and Manwhores Party. Event though the weather was absolutely disgusting, 45 degrees and pouring, all the hotties still came through. This upcoming Sunday we’re throwing a ‘Wedding Party.’ Basically, we’re going to set up a big wedding-decorated photobooth, complete with a veil for one of the ‘grooms-to-be’ to wear.”

  • Chadboy

    Looks like any other night at a gay bar. Jeans and tanktop seem to be what most superheroes wear these days.

    That mess in #3 photo never misses a party. He is there from the begining and about 2 hours into the party he is a wobbling no beat mess. lol He is from NYC and famous for falling out at a party. lol I don’t go out much but he is famous amongst my friends because it’s not a party if he is not there dancing to the beat of his internal drum. Kuddo’s to him. I’m sure he a successful man.

    Girlfriend needs some serious help with that hairdo though…yikers!

  • Franco

    Picture 9 is hilarious.

  • Joe

    Mmm guys in masks and suits are HOT! Too bad none of them seemed to be in costume. A Wolverine t-shirt doesn’t make you an X-Man.

    @Joe: I meant capes. Lol
