PHOTOS: The Queerties Launch At Industry In New York


Queerty took over New York’s Industry Bar to celebrate the nominees in the first-ever Queerties, honoring the best (and occasionally worst) in politics, entertainment, sports, viral videos, eye candy and more.

A capacity crowd got the chance to cast some of the first votes in categories like Coming Out of the Year, Scandal of the Year, Fave Drag Race Contestant, Biggest Celebrity Beef and Douche of the Year (Mitt Romney is the runaway favorite so far).

Even if you couldn’t attend, you can still vote. It’s quick, easy, and sure to get a few chuckles out of you and your cubicle buddies: Just head over to the main Queerties page to get started!

Vote once a day until midnight Eastern Time on November 20, 2012.
