PHOTOS: New York City Prepares For The Black Party Weekend


The Black Party will hit Roseland Ballroom for a weekend-long series of rituals and events and there are plenty of ways to get in on the fun. BPX: The Black Party Expo will feature The Hookies, which celebrates the best in the male escort industry with awards in fifteen categories. BPX and Dirty Carnival pull back the leather curtain, granting visitors access to the netherworld behind the biggest and most notorious gay dance party in the world. Expect strange and eccentric live acts, naughty carnival games, adult film stars, fetish art, fashion and all kinds of sexy eye candy. The Saint at Large has been busy setting the scene for what will be the last Black Party at Roseland Ballroom (the popular concert and event space will close later this year). The weekend will kick off early with tonight’s opening reception tonight at Rosebud Bar & Hotel Lounge featuring In Endless Nights of Love, an electronic installation including posters and rare images from events produced by The Saint At Large at Roseland Ballroom from 1991 to 2014. Large format photographs by Robert Zash will also be on display.

    The Black Party, yes! So many hot men in these photos, and there are so many more at the event!

    I want to feed something to the guys in the 5th pic. Like a sandwich or two.

    Must be getting old…

    Okay, so can someone explain to me the whole Escort thing? I am soo confused- I mean, how is it legal and prostitution isn’t. I mean, what’s the difference? The awards are called the Hookies for Christ sake! I am serious, Please explain!.

    @Darreyl102: it always surprises me that sites like Rentboy aren’t shut down and the ppl arrested. i mean, isn’t there always some madam going to jail for keeping a little black book? IDK how they get away with it. meanwhile, i understand guys getting fantasy sex for a few hundred bucks with the studs who are on these sites, what’s wrong with that? these are not the guys you can buy a beer and take them home, they are much more beautiful than that kind of guy.
    lastly, these parties are all drug and sex festivals. not that there’s anything wrong with that, just that you take your life in your hands going to this kind of gig.

    @Darreyl102: One is for sex and the other is paying for your time.

  • Darreyl102

    Wow, paying someone to spend time with you?? That’s even worse! LOL. I mean, how pathetic is that? No offense, but how desperate and lonely do you have to be to actually resort to having to pay someone to spend time with you. I mean, WOW.

    I hear ya, Darreyl – but at the same time, I could see throwing a few hundy to spend some “quality” time with Ryan Gosling, Chris Evans, etc…

  • Darreyl102

    I guess. I just would want people around me for ME not my Money. If you get what I mean. LOL
