WEEKEND ROUNDUP: Bi at Sundown, Drag Queens of Comedy and More Gay To-Dos

Nightlife Gay‘s Bruce Yelk’s new, much-hyped rager, “bi at Sundown,” finally kicks off when the sun slinks below the horizon on Sunday. The party is a bi-weekly affair taking place at Lit Ultra Bar that focuses on international DJ talent, and giving people a not-too-late party option on the Sabbath day. Confused about the “bi” part? Don’t worry, you don’t have to be bisexual to attend. Yelk explains the thought behind the name to Philly Weekly’s Bill Chenevert: ”The ‘bi’ portion is dual pronged. First, the party is bi-weekly, and that seemed to be the easiest way to convey that fact. Plus, I am known to produce several well-known LGBT events, but I wanted this event to be much more inclusive. I think bi works on that front — to let everyone know they are welcome at this event.”

STRIPPED: Peter Andrew Danzig

My coming out story is …
My friend Danielle. I decided to tell her I was gay at a football game, in which she responded, “So that’s why you’ll never make out with me!” It was sobering to have that moment met with a laugh and a smile. My mom responded similarly, telling me it didn’t matter as long as I found love.

If I’m checking out a guy, chances are he has …
Beautiful eyes. It’s all about eye contact for me. That reveals a lot about a person. Also, pecs are kind of my thing. So there is that, too.

My worst date was …
Someone took me out for ice cream and then told me 15 minutes in he had purchased a hotel room. Ummmm … no. It was the shortest date ever. I’d say 20 minutes in total — enough time to finish my ice cream!
