Red, White, and OOOOH is the July 5th show by the Liberty City Kings Drag & Burlesque, and it’s serving everything classic about America.

What makes this show even more special is that this is one of the last chances to see the incomparable Notorious OMG before he sashays out of the spotlight. Once the show is over, you can dance the night away with the award-winning cast. Bonus: If you come dressed in kink, you get a small discount for entry. Hey: it’s hard out there! Every dollar counts! If you’re not looking for fireworks this weekend, head to this kinky show at Tabu instead. July 5-6, 8:00 p.m.-2:00 a.m., $10 (in drag/kink/costume) or $12 (regular admission), Tabu.

On Sunday — smack in the middle of the Pride festivities at Penn’s Landing — the Freedom Elite set sail on the Delaware for Independence Business Alliance’s (IBA) 2nd Annual Sails With Pride event. Attendees were welcomed onto the private yacht by a tall, dark, handsome (and shirtless!) stud, and a beautiful blonde woman.

In short: It’s the thing summer and lifetime memories are made of.
