Pride Pool Party

PHOTOS: Queerty Cannonballed Into a Pool of Guys with Beach Balls at the Grace Hotel Pride Party

With all the pride and gay marriage excitement in New York I needed to cool off a bit, so I checked into New York City’s Grace Hotel, home of the sexy DRI!P Party for the GLADD/ABSOLUT Pride Perfected Pool Party, which turned out to be one of the hottest (and most wet) parties Pride Weekend. It was my first time at the Grace Hotel and I didn’t know what to expect. I walked in to find beach balls, crazy cocktails, and tons of big beefy muscle boys splashing around in the pool. DJ Theresa was spinning in the main room from 5:00pm-8:00pm, and there was a hysterical screen set up for boys to skype with a simultaneous party that was taking place in Las Vegas. It was a wild and crazy day, the perfect excuse to cannon ball into a pool full of hot guys.

    I looked in the pics for the “Big, Beefy, Muscle boys” the writer talked about. But, all I saw was a bunch of hairless twinks.

    Pic #5 – Absolut and GLAAD. One is a greedy, injrious business interested only in it’s own profits and keeping us addicted to their destructive, addicting products. The other is Absolut.

    @Red Meat: Maybe he’s trying to protect it from that sasquatch posing next to him?

    And no doubt exit that same pool full of newly-contracted venereal diseases and other microscopic organisms that have yet to be identified by modern science.

    @TheRealMannequinAdam: these critiques are so tiresome guys. ya don’t like the slideshows of shirtless guys at events? don’t click on the link. you want to see more variety in the men Queerty showcases at events? take pics and send them to th editorial folks… or send them notes about your parties or the one’s you’ve heard about. I’m sure they are interested in reflecting their readers varied interests and engagement with their audience.

    @Reggie: I have no clue what you’re talking about.

  • Tony

    @Reggie: Well stated!!!
