As if Thanksgiving Eve doesn’t produce enough madness, Nightlife Gay went and booked *NSYNC legend and kinda-sorta gay icon Lance Bass for its annual Pink Pub Crawl. And sure, Lance wasn’t around for much more than an eye-lash bat and a “Hi…Bye,” but it was more than enough to throw a sea of gays (and a few blood-pressure-heightened groupies) into full-on Swoon Mode.
Oh, and Brittany Lynn showed up with inflatable breasts.

Members of the Philadelphia Gay Men’s Chorus, from their official Facebook page.
It was a frigid morning, but members of the Philadelphia Gay Men’s Chorus donned some adorable sweaters and took to the Parkway to perform in the 6 ABC Thanksgiving Day Parade. It was the first time that a LGBTQ organization was a featured performance in the age-old holiday tradition in Philly, and they fit in quite nicely!
We rounded up some of the best shots of the gay-ole choral group from social media to share with our readers, and don’t forget to check out their upcoming concert, Down Home Holiday, which runs from December 4 through the 6. Details can be found here.
Any party being promoted as “The Gayborhood’s Tackiest Holiday Affair” promises to be one thing: really good.
That’s exactly what The Bronzed Bee, the airbrush tanning and waxing boutique located on Rittenhouse Square, is aiming for when they invade U BAR for a one-night-only event aptly titled “My Big Gay Tacky Sweater Party.” The evening, which takes place on Wednesday, December 10 from 6-8PM, is a party for a purpose: guests are asked to bring a toy to benefit Toys For Tots. In exchange, you’ll be able to enjoy the tawdriest affair around. Read more »
Over the summer, we reported on what appeared to be failed plans for Denise Cohen, the former manager of now-shuttered Sisters Nightclub, to open a new lesbian bar. Her Indiegogo campaign to raise funds didn’t work out as planned, as she netted a mere 15% of her targeted goal.
However, G Philly has obtained a copy of an application for a liquor license at 1316 Walnut Street, at the old Hokkaido restaurant. The name on the license is none other than Denise Cohen’s.

Rachelle Lee Smith
Chances are, you’ve seen Rachelle Lee Smith‘s work: you just haven’t realized it is hers.
If you’ve walked by the now abandoned Robbinson Luggage store on the corner of Broad and Walnut over the last few months, you’ve surely taken note of the plethora of pictures of LGBTQ youth in the windows. This pop-up project, which is part of Smith’s Speaking OUT: Queer Youth in Focus, has brought her photography quite a bit of local attention. The aim of Smith’s photoessay is to, according to her, “open up minds, humanize the people who fall under the LGBTQ (and the list goes on) spectrum, and create empathy.” Read more »
The biggest Stimulus event of the whole year was held Friday 11/20/14 with over 800 sexy, hot ladies packing the Black and White Party at Voyeur and dancing to the tunes of DJ Jovi Baby. It was also the birthday party for Stimulus producers Morgan Levine and Amber Hikes. We captured some of the hottest moments of the party below.
Every week, Philly gay gents share their local picks for Man Crush Monday. Today, we feature Russell Oden, a self-proclaimed Philadelphia lover and QVC stylist.
Last Five Man Crush Mondays:
QOTA, a monthly happy hour on East Passyunk Avenue for our LGBT neighbors, friends and allies, held their November event at Urban Jungle last Thursday. Guests were treated to an early holiday wonderland, plus plenty of decorating ideas, snacks, and sips to keep the evening moving. We captured some of the best moments, thanks to the East Passyunk Avenue Business Improvement District.
If you’re a vegetarian, like me, you don’t really look forward to the centerpiece on the big ole’ Turkey Day meal (but, I’d be willing to bet that you do overload on mashed potatoes and that green bean casserole thingie). Instead, you’re plotting out your Thanksgiving week, which is notorious for parties, events, and festivities that you simply can’t pass up (just like that cranberry sauce in a can). We here at G Philly came up with our best bets of everything going on in gay Philly during the week of Thanksgiving, broken up in a day-by-day, easy to follow guide. Consider it your recipe for a holiday well-done. Read more »
