Pride Guide

A NIGHT OF CLASS
The title speaks for itself, so leave the sneakers, baggy clothes, and scantily clad wear at home. Professional sistahs 26 and over get the golden pass to this mature event. Crystal Atmosphere per-forms with DJ Donna on the tables. June 23 at 10, Exchange Club, corner of Exchange and Hanover Pl, 726-8302. (KF)

PRIDE DANCE 2001

AFTERGLOW!
Lovergirl returns to True to conclude Pride in their house with DJs Millie and Mary Mac, a bevy of Go-Go Goddesses hitched along for the ride, and Murray Hill in tow. Two floors provide a little something for everyone. The party kicks off early, so either go home, shower, and look your finest or leave the parade and come as you are. June 24 at 6, True, 28 E 23rd, 631-1102. (KF)

PARTY AT NANNY'S
It's Sunday, it's hot, the parade is still going, and all you want is a drink. Fear not, Nanny's got the party starting extra early especially for women suffering from your dilemma. They're pulling out all the stops with three dancers and rotating DJs M.K., Kim B, and Storm. Drink specials and "Sex in the City Martinis." Yum. June 24 at 2, Crazy Nanny's, 21 Seventh Ave S, 366-6312. (KF)


FOR THE BOYS

NDAHOOD & HARLEM WORLD 5TH ANNIVERSARY BASH
The long-running safe-sex party for black and Latino men of the hip-hop generation goes into overdrive for Pride. They've sent along all the typical prerequisites: no fats, no fems, no grand daddys, but you can work that one out for yourselves. Arrive, check your gear (free), and enjoy two nights of festivities in closed quarters, replete with souvenir condoms, music, and refreshments to keep you going. June 20 through 23. Call the hotline for location info at 926-8822. (JG)

BLACK INCHES MAGAZINE PARTY
The magazine tailor-made for lovers of black males rings in Pride in its own special way, with go-go boys rocking their "wares" to a hip-hop beat, plus more. We can't confirm all the details, but if the festivities are anything close to the features in the mag, then it should be a niceway to begin the weekend. June 21 at 2 a.m., La Escuelita, 301 W 39th, 631-0588. (JG)

CALIGULA 2001: A ROMAN ORGY
>At last, the circuit party comes back to Rome. You knew it was inevitable, but it was all just a question of who would dispel with the pretenses and dig at the essence of all-male dance marathons—sexual hedonism coated in a glossy veneer. Circuit kings Victor Calderone, Marc Berkley, and Jeffrey Sanker are the guilty party behind the spectacle, importing the likes of Cyndi Lauper and C&C Music Factory vocalist Deborah Cooper to sit in the Emperor's box. A 50-piece orchestra and acrobats from Cirque du Soleil will spike up the night in what looks to be the city's most flawless evening of partying. June 23 at 10, Hammerstein Ballroom, 311 W 34th, 307-7171. (JG)

DANCING QUEENS CD RELEASE PARTY
All hail Angel Sheridan. The queen of New York's high-glamour drag scene is representing for her art on a national scale with Dancing Queens, her new compilation of classic drag anthems. Escuelita's queen mami hosts a night devoted to goddess worship, with go-go dancers and the Escuelita Divas serving drama for the show. June 23 at 2 a.m., La Escuelita, 301 W 39th, 631-0588. (JG)

ROXY PROUD DIVAS
Trust that John Blair won't let you down for Pride. He loves his boys and knows what they desire in order to party right—the most influential vocalists in the garage universe (right now, anyways): Kim English, Lolleatta Halloway, and Suzanne Palmer all perform their newest hits for a (well, naturally) packed house of the city's most beautiful men. Club 69's Peter Rauhofer dusts the plates and keeps things moving all night. We trust you'll know how to hook up the rest. June 23 at 10, Roxy, 515 W 18th, 645-5156. (JG)

SOAK'N'WET
Klaus and Chris's dilemma? Klaus has to catch the plane back to Berlin at midnight, but the boys really haven't had a last hurrah for Pride. What to do? They journey to Don Turner's tea dance at the pier and groove under the pink summer sky—an amazing party. Chris cherishes Klaus's tender kisses as he watches the cab go off, true love left unrequited 'til September. Later that night, Chris eats his second pill, trollops off to the Hammerstein to have it off with Jeremy and Rick. And it's all good. June 23 from 2 to 8, Pier 63, W 23rd by the Hudson. Tickets available at Raymond Dragon, 130 Seventh Ave and 18th, 727-0368. (JG)

PATTI LABELLE (THE ONE AND ONLY)
Gay New York's most notorious neighborhood bar (probably the only place in the world where softcore porn greets you at the urinals) raises its profile a notch with a live p.a. performance from none other than the original diva, Miss Patti LaBelle. Splash's DJ Billy Carroll preps the floor with a set beginning at eight. Miss Patti takes the stage at midnight, and we hear she is ready to party with the boys. June 24 at 4 p.m., Splash, 50 W 17th, 691-0073. (JG)
