What to do this week: November 18 – 24

handsome, hunk, shirtless, beard, otterBelow I’ve shared approximately 50 different LGBTQ events, parties and shows taking place this week. Events this week range from Monday night’s Boston Gay Men’s Book Club meet up to Tuesday’s Lip Sync Battle where the winner will get Madonna tickets to GayDodgeball Open Play and A Drag Queen Christmas “The Naughty Tour” both on Thursday.

This weekend Ptown hosts Mr. New England Leather Weekend but if you’re staying in Boston don’t worry, there are a ridiculous amount of parties planned (see below for the full list). If you’re looking for options to bars and nightclubs you can always check out Drag Queen Story Hour Saturday afternoon or stop by later that night when the bookstore hosts Queer Board Game Night and for those looking for something truly different check out Naked Yoga for Men this Sunday (classes fill quickly and you must pre-register with the group to be able to attend).
