Philly-by-way-of-Pittsburgh party producer Corey Griffith is bringing a new queer night, “Mondo Trasho,” to Fishtown’s Barbary, where every other Wednesday, starting Feb. 12, gays can escape the Gayborhood to throw down in the 19125. I got a chance to chat with Corey (who, full disclosure, is a personal friend) about how the party came about, and why he thinks Philly’s homo nightlife needs a dose of trashy Pittsburgh fun.
