Top 10 Reasons To Go To The Black Party Expo & Dirty Carnival
I love when a publicist cooks up a list of reasons to do something. It makes things so much neater and more digestible, especially when we're dealing with the raunchy yet illuminating Black Party Expo and other related shenanigans. Here are the reasons:
1--Need to buy an outfit for the big night? Well, look no further. The expo is full of vendors like The Leather Man, Rubio Leather, Priape, Steve Leather, Tagg, Leather Bonding Company, and more! We've got harnesses, jock straps, underwear, cuffs, and all of the accessories needed to make you look your sexiest for the party of the year!
2--The Expo is your chance to look behind the scenes of the world's most notorious party. As a spectator at the Dirty Carnival, you can witness the performers from the Black Party rehearsing their shows for the big night.
3--Adult film stars wearing close to nothing at all! They are there to meet you, sign autographs, and get frisky for your viewing pleasure.
4--Contests and raffles! We throw out so many goodies from the stage all day like free porn, leather, lube, jock straps, and more.
5--Free rapid HIV testing right there in Roseland Ballroom. Harlem United is in the house and will be offering you rapid results. 20 Minutes and you will know your status. Because knowledge is power.
6--The Hookie Awards take place on Friday evening in Roseland right in the middle of the Expo. See all your favorite adult film stars and celebrity presenters.
7-Fashion and Music merge with a live concert of top European dance recording artist Billie Ray Martin during a very sexy Fetish Fashion Show. Showtime starts at 8PM Friday evening. Get a look at the hot costumes for the big party!
8--Can you say Dirty Carnival? From the Puppy and Pig Man petting zoo, and the wet underwear contest, to the butt-pie eating contest, to the lube wrestling competition. We've got games! Dirty ass games. The Dirty Carnival takes place all day Saturday from 12pm - 7pm.
9--We have a live nude artist drawing circle taking place Friday from 7pm-9pm right inside the expo. Penis and art. Art and Sin. Hosted by Spunk Magazine.
10--Pick up your Will-Call tickets at the box office during the day and come right on into the Expo free of charge! All Black Party ticket holders gain free entry to BPX all day Saturday. Skip the nightmare of waiting in line the night of the party! No line and free entry. No brainer! Also, everyone who stops by the Black Party Booth inside the expo and shows their Black Party ticket, gets a free goodie bag with special gifts from our sponsors, as well as the Black Party weekend Zine and guidebook, 'Exposed' by Instigator Magazine.
Please! They had me at #3!
