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.

    What? “Even if you couldn’t attend”? Well, you know, there was that little matter of YOU NOT INVITING US.

  • Yang Tai

    Wow! Where are all the black, brown, yellow and green people?

  • langston

    WOW! what a racially diverse crew #sarcasm
    @YangTai is right!

    First, race does not exist, it is just a construct of society. Everyone has a unique phenotype, and there is as much variance in any “group” as between them, and human evolution is on a continuum affected by our environment. Taxonomical classification ends at Species, and we are all Homo sapiens with a unique phenotype.

    @Yang Tai: Second, I see quite a few different levels of melanin (the pigment that affects skin color) in the crowd.
