Ascension 10 by Jeffrey James Keyes

Queerty/GayCities photoblogger Jeffrey James Keyes took the pink ferry from Sayville, New York to Fire Island this past weekend and got down at the legendary Ascension party, Sunday, August 21, on the Pines beach, where  pop trio Dragonette (“Hello”) and DJs Lee Dagger of Bimbo Jones and Brett Henrichsen worked the crowd of strapping lads into a frenzy. (Later that night, everyone bounced over to 236 Bay Walk before coming in from the rain.)

Also during Ascension Weekend:  Steve Sidewalk introduced singer Kelsey to a crowd of sweaty boys at High Tea; Crystal Waters, Countess Luann and Kristine W performed; and DJ goddess Lina turned it out at her Twirlina residency at Sip N’ Twirl.
