Weekend Roundup

It’s the last weekend in Philly before Pride Month begins, which kind of makes this Pride Month Eve, right? If you’re looking for gay things to do, here’s what you have in store: lots of drag, including a performance by New York City tall drink of water Marti Gould Cummings at Tabu on Friday, and the debut of our newest comedy drag troupe The Mister Wives on Saturday. If you want to dance, head to Voltage Lounge for a rager by some of the hosts of Cut N Paste, or, you know, go to Woody’s or Icandy. On the unique side, there’s A Very Tabu Prom, which not only gives you an excuse to run for prom queen again, but benefits Philly FIGHT‘s Y-Hep program. Find out about all that and more in our roundup below:
