It’s Pride here in New York City! What better way to ring in the first weekend of summer than a full weekend of celebration to honor our friends in the LGBTQIA+ community?! Whether you’re marching, partying, chillin’, or anything in-between, we’re here to help you squeeze in one more activity: an awesomely weird and wonderful event right here in your city. Here are our picks for what’s weird and wonderful this weekend. Can’t get enough? Check out our full list of shows for Pride here.

To make this week’s edition a little more…proud… we’re including some rainbows, so enjoy BB’s! Now, let’s get weird, shall we?

Museum Hack Tours
Manhattan, Upper East Side
Museum, Tour

Museum Hack leads live, VIP tours of awesome museums across the country. Tours include sassy “insider” stories about the art, activities in the galleries, selfies, and sometimes wine (and more treats when the guards aren’t looking). We love all of their tours, but our fave might be the “Badass Bitches” tour of The Met which is perfect for feminists from all backgrounds, smashers of the patriarchy, Beyoncé, and guests 16 years of age or older.

 

Grease Sing-Along
Manhattan, Upper West Side
Film, Interactive

Oh, those summer nights! We’ve come a long way as a society since the 1950s, but we can all admire the hair gel, leather jackets, and catchy tunes of this musical favorite. Sing along with Sandy, Danny, and the whole crew at Symphony Space this Sunday at 6PM.

 

Le Blanc
Manhattan, Midtown
Play, Experimental

This original show at the PIT explores race, intimacy, sexuality, relationships, and the American judicial, healthcare, and law enforcement systems from a Black, American, Queer perspective. Get some food for thought here and come out — no pun intended — with a new outlook!

 

Naked Boys Singing
Manhattan, Midtown
Revue, Comedy, Music

The title says it all! “Naked Boys Singing” proves once-and-for-all that clothes alone do not make the man. This hilarious revue features six gorgeous guys, absolutely no clothes, and some pretty fun tunes to boot. SIGN. US. UP.

 

Coming up soon:

Labapalooza
Brooklyn, DUMBO
Festival, Puppets

Each spring, St. Ann’s Warehouse showcases works-in-progress developed over the course of a year in their Puppet Lab. Now in its 19th year, St. Ann’s Puppet Lab is an experimental haven for artists making interdisciplinary puppet and object theater. If you think that a sock puppet is the whole puppet universe, your mind will be blown because puppets are freakin’ cool y’all! And so is St. Ann’s Warehouse, lookin’ fine in their recently renovated Dumbo digs.
